BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) Technology: The Cambridge Audio
Minx C46 in-ceiling speaker features a single 2.25" BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator)
driver. The Cambridge Audio BMR driver utilizes patented 'bending wave'
principles normally seen in advanced flat-panel speakers, combined with
piston-movement (backwards and forwards) like in a traditional speaker design.
This type of design provides the Minx in-ceiling speaker with a much wider
frequency response and deeper and more powerful bass frequencies, plus
incredibly spacious sound. The BMR driver design also adds value by delivering a
much broader sound dispersion across the entire room, avoiding the typical
"sweet spot" pitfall, for a more enveloping sound.
- Rubber Surround: The 2.25" BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator)
driver employs a rubber surround for added durability and excursion.
- Neodymium Magnets: The BMR driver utilizes
ultra-compact push-pull neodymium magnets for greater efficiency.
IP65 Certified: Fully tested to IP65, the Minx C46 in-ceiling speaker
is suitable for high humidity and dusty environments. Its IP65 rating ensures
that no dust or water can pass-through and a fitted gasket swells under exposure
to heat to block smoke.
Magnetic Grille: The Minx C46 includes a magnetic mesh metal grille
that is paintable.
Spring-Clip Speaker Terminals: The Cambridge Audio Minx C46
in-ceiling speaker is fitted with spring-clip speakers terminals to attach your
in-wall speaker. The spring-clip terminals will accept bare wire (up to 16AWG)
Mounting Options: The Minx C46 in-ceiling speaker requires a
3" in diameter and mounting depth 3.75" of depth. Two spring-loaded
mounting clips (one on
either side of the Minx C46) secures the speaker in the ceiling. The Minx C46
in-ceiling speaker will fit into a standard 3" ceiling spotlight mounting hole.
Applications: The Cambridge Audio Minx C46 in-ceiling speaker is
incredibly versatile and can be used as a virtually invisible surround speaker
solution as part of a Minx 5.1 system, installed around your home to bring music
discreetly to every room, or used in arrays in a commercial environment to
provide an even spread of sound.
