BMR Driver: The Cambridge Audio Aero 5 center-channel speaker employs
a 2" Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) driver to seamlessly cover the frequency range
from 250Hz to 22kHz, making it perfect for reproducing movie and music dialogue
with the greatest clarity and neutrality. By replacing the traditional tweeter
with a BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) driver, the Aero 5 center-channel speaker
offers several key advantages over conventional center-channel speakers.
- 250Hz Crossover Point: Using the BMR shifts the crossover point
between tweeter and woofer away from the usual 3kHz, right at the middle of
the human ear's most sensitive hearing range, to a less problematic 250Hz.
The result is a more natural, immersive and coherent sound.
- Wider Soundstage: BMRs also offer a wider sound, so speakers can
be placed in a wider range of places while still delivering excellent stereo
and surround effects; making these speakers ideal for modern homes.
- Accurate Bass Response: Using a BMR driver also means that Aero
5's woofers get to really focus on the midbass and bass frequencies for a
more cinematic, immersive sound with accurate bass.
Custom-Designed Midbass Drivers: The Aero 5 center-channel
speaker employs dual 5.25" midbass drivers. These
cone drivers are specifically designed to complement the BMR driver, so they can
concentrate on lower bass and midbass frequencies.
Premium Constructed Cabinet: The Aero 5 center-channel
speaker's cabinet is designed not only to look classic, discreet and stylish,
but also is constructed using CAD (Computer Aided Design)
techniques and critical bracing to minimize distortion and maximize audio
quality. The enclosure is constructed
of MDF to help eliminate resonance and distortion.
Binding Posts: The Cambridge Audio Aero 5 center-channel
loudspeaker is equipped with a set of binding post terminals. The binding post
terminals will accept bare-wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectors, spade-connectors,
and banana-plugs (single only). The terminals are color-coded (black/red) to
distinguish between positive and negative.
Applications & Placement Options: The Cambridge Audio Aero 5
is designed to be used as your center-channel speaker in your home theater
speaker system. Ideally, the center-channel speaker should be placed above or
below your flat-panel TV or video display and equal distance to your listening
position as the front speakers. The Cambridge Audio Aero 5 center-channel
loudspeaker includes four self-adhesive foam-feet to place the speaker securely
on a desk, table, shelf, or speaker-stand. The feet add approximately 0.125" of
height to the speaker.
