Minx Satellite Speakers: The Cambridge Audio Minx 525
speaker system includes five matching Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite
speakers. The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite speaker provides accuracy,
detail, and realism from a compact speaker. Its wide dispersion capabilities
make it easy to integrate into any room.
BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) Technology: The Cambridge Audio
Minx MIN21 satellite speaker features dual 2.25" BMR (Balanced Mode
Radiator) drivers. The Cambridge Audio BMR drivers utilize 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 satellite 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. The 2.25" BMR (Balanced Mode
Radiator) drivers employ a rubber surround for added durability and excursion.
Each BMR driver utilizes ultra-compact push-pull neodymium magnets for greater
Compact Acoustic Suspension Enclosure: The Cambridge Audio
Minx MIN21 satellite speaker is only 3.125" (w) x 6.125" (h) x 3.75" (d). The
Minx MIN21 features an acoustic suspension (sealed) cabinet for greater detail
and tonal accuracy. The satellite speaker employs an acoustically damped
thermo-polymer and extruded aluminum cabinet to prevent distortion caused by
resonance and vibration. The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 includes a detachable
cloth grille. The Minx MIN21 cabinets are available in a high-gloss black (with
black cloth grille) or high-gloss white finish (with silver cloth grille). The
black and white high-gloss lacquers are finished to the highest standard using
paint application techniques developed by premium automotive manufactures. The
black and white lacquer finishes are hard to scratch and easy to clean.
Binding Posts: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite
speaker is equipped with a pair of binding post terminals. The binding post
terminals will accept bare-wire, pin-connectors, and spade-connectors. The
terminals are color-coded (black/red) to distinguish between positive and
negative. The satellite speaker's binding post terminals can be removed to allow
use of banana plugs (single only). The binding post terminals simply pull out of
the back of the speaker, which allows access to banana connector inputs.
Mounting Options: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite
speakers can be table-top mounted, wall mounted, or placed on a floor-standing
speaker stand. The speakers can be positioned vertically or horizontally (based
on application and mount-type).
- Table-Top Mount: The Minx MIN21 satellite speakers come
with four self-adhesive rubber feet (each) to simply place the speakers
securely on a table or shelf. There is also an optional Minx Table-Top Stand
sold separately) available, which allows placement on a desk, table, or
- Wall Mount: The Minx MIN21s features a rear-mounted 6mm
threaded insert which allows you to wall-mount the speakers using the
included keyhole-slot adapter, the Cambridge Audio Minx Wall Bracket (779MPWM,
sold separately), or other optional wall-mount bracket (sold separately).
- Speaker Stand: The 6mm threaded inserts on the back of
the satellite speakers can be used to attach the speakers to the Cambridge
Audio Minx Floor Stands (779MFSB,
Frequency Response: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite
speaker features a 120Hz to 20,000Hz frequency range.
Power Handling: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite
speaker can handle 15 to 50 watts (RMS).
Minx X500 Powered Subwoofer: The Cambridge Audio Minx 525
speaker system includes the Cambridge Audio Minx X500 powered subwoofer.
Digital Signal Processor (DSP): The Cambridge Audio X500
powered subwoofer features built-in Digital Signal Processing (DSP) which allows
for smaller cabinet construction without sacrificing bass response.
500W Amplifier: The Cambridge Audio X500 powered subwoofer
is equipped with a 300 watt (RMS) digital amplifier for increased efficiency and
10" Woofer: The Cambridge Audio X500 powered subwoofer uses
a one-piece, aerospace-grade aluminum, front-firing 10" cone woofer to move air
with incredible efficiency.
Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR): The Cambridge Audio X500
powered subwoofer utilizes a down-firing 10" auxiliary bass radiator (ABR) for
greater bass response and better efficiency. The ABR design replaces the need
for bass ports to eliminate air noise at higher volume levels.
Frequency Response: The Cambridge Audio X500 powered
subwoofer has a rated frequency response of 39-200 Hz.
Controls: The Cambridge Audio X500 powered subwoofer is
equipped with the following rear-panel controls.
- Volume Control: The Cambridge Audio X500 powered
subwoofer has a rear-panel rotary volume control to adjust the volume of the
subwoofer relative to the other speakers in the system.
- Crossover Frequency: The Cambridge Audio X500 powered
subwoofer offers a continuously variable low-pass filter, adjustable from
- Phase Adjustment: The subwoofer's phase adjustment
allows you to adjust the subwoofer's phase between 0°
to 180°. If the bass sounds muddy or
unclear, adjusting the phase control can sometimes strengthen the bass
- Auto On/Off: The X500's Auto On/Off feature will switch
the powered subwoofer On and Off automatically by signal detection.

left channel RCA input doubles as the LFE input, if your receiver has an LFE
output and a built-in low-pass crossover.
- RCA Output: The powered subwoofer's gold-plated left &
right RCA line-level outputs allow you to connect (daisy-chain) a second
- Wireless Port: This proprietary 5-pin port is designed
to connect the Cambridge Audio Wireless Module (not yet available).
