The center channel speaker with a difference
Complete your Cambridge Audio Aero Series home theater system with the Aero 5 center channel speaker. Its advanced driver technology works to deliver clear, distinct movie dialogue and exciting special effects. In place of a conventional tweeter, Cambridge gave this speaker a radical "BMR" driver. It's this same technology that makes all of Cambridge Audio's Aero Series speakers a fantastic choice for savoring stereo music or immersive surround sound.
The "BMR" advantage for natural, spacious sound
The BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) driver used in Cambridge's Aero Series features flat speaker surface that combines the traditional "pistonic" movement of speaker cones with a "bending-wave" movement to create sound. This allows BMR drivers to cover a much wider frequency range than conventional tweeters.
Better midrange clarity
Why does that matter? Because with most speaker systems, the crossover point between the tweeter and woofer occurs in the critical midrange frequencies, where human ears are most sensitive to distortion and differences in sound between driver types. Aero 5's crossover point occurs all the way down at 250 Hz, giving you clearer, more natural movie dialogue. And since the BMR driver handles all of the highs and midrange, that means the woofers can focus on what they do best — bass.
Broad spacious soundstage
That's not the only advantage of BMR technology. This innovative driver construction also allows Aero series speakers to spread sound over a much broader area than conventional speakers. This makes Aero speakers ideal for room layouts where your speaker placement options are less than optimum.
Built to perform
Aero series cabinets are not only discreet and classic-looking, they're engineered for better performance. Each solidly braced MDF enclosure is computer-designed to help minimize standing waves and prevent unwanted resonance from coloring the sound. Heavy-duty, gold-plated binding posts make it easy to connect the high-quality speaker wire of your choice for top-notch performance.
