Overview: The Cambridge Audio S20 Bookshelf
Loudspeakers feature a two-way design with a 1" soft-dome tweeter and 4"
mid-bass woofer loaded in an acoustic suspension enclosure. The S20 bookshelf

Two-Way Drivers: The Cambridge Audio S20 bookshelf loudspeakers employ
a two-way speaker design.
- 1" Soft-Dome Tweeter: The S20 bookshelf loudspeakers feature a 1"
soft-dome tweeter for smooth, accurate highs. The tweeters
use high flux density, self shielding neodymium magnet assemblies for
improved sensitivity and better dynamics.
- 4" Mid-Bass Woofer: The S20 bookshelf loudspeakers utilize a 4"
woven polyfiber cone mid-bass woofer for dynamic mid & bass response.
Each mid-bass woofer uses a rigid phase plug for improved off-axis
integration. The 4" mid-bass woofers also feature a high-quality
rubber surround edge for reliable cone termination. In addition, an
optimized magnet motor-assembly is used for extended lower frequencies.
Two-Way Crossover: The S20 bookshelf loudspeakers utilize a 1st order,
2-way crossover to deliver high-frequencies to the tweeters and mid-/low-frequencies to the
mid-bass drivers. High-quality laminate core inductors give
cleaner bass with improved dynamics, while polypropylene film capacitors in
critical path areas give a high-resolution high frequency response.
Frequency Response: The S20 bookshelf loudspeakers have a frequency
response rating of 80 to 20,000 Hz.
Power Handling: The Cambridge Audio S20 bookshelf loudspeakers can
handle between 15 to 80 watts (RMS).

cabinet with internal cross-bracing to prevent any unwanted distortion caused by
