Applications: The Monitor Audio Radius 45 satellite loudspeaker is
perfect for discrete sound around your home, or partnered with a
Radius powered sub (sold separately) for big stereo sound, or used as
surround and surround back speakers in your home theater.
Two-Way Speaker Design: The Monitor Audio Radius 45 features
a two-way speaker design with one rear-firing 3/4" C-CAM gold dome tweeter and
one front-firing 3" MMP II cone woofer. The tweeter is rear-firing to enhance
sound dispersion characteristics. The tweeter and woofer share similar audible
consistency producing a smooth transition of frequencies and a sense of realism
and cohesion in the soundstage.
- C-CAM Gold-Dome Tweeter: The gold dome tweeter is
formed from a ceramic-coated aluminum/magnesium alloy, gold anodized to a
specific thickness for ideal stiffness and damping characteristics. Its new
profile and surround geometry have been developed using advanced modeling
tools, to provide the optimum qualities for accurate sound reproduction. The
new design moves the first order of breakup to beyond 35kHz, producing a
linear response way beyond audibility, which matches the wide frequency
bandwidth available from HD music and cinema sound formats. The gold dome is
thinner, lighter, more rigid and therefore more efficient than domes made
from other materials which are prone to distortion in the audio band.
- Metal Matrix Polymer (MMP II) Woofer: Metal Matrix Polymer driver
cones have a polypropylene diaphragm injected with metallic particles to
offer a rigid and responsive structure. They are manufactured using a
sophisticated high-pressure injection process, which modulates cone
thickness at critical points to optimize stiffness and consistency,
resulting in a superior sonic performance.
Note: The Radius 45 incorporates a thermal protection device, which helps
to protect the woofer and tweeter from permanent damage.
Single Through-Bolt Mount: The tweeter and woofer are fixed
to the cabinet with a single through-bolt driver fixing mount. This
single-through-bolt mount design provides mechanical de-coupling and enhanced
midband clarity and resolution. The through-bolts also act as rigid cross
bracing to give a very solid non-resonant cabinet.
Stylish Cabinet: The Monitor Audio Radius 45 features a
beautiful precision cabinet in a gloss black, gloss white, or walnut finish. The
cabinet's smooth rounded edges, silver trim, and metal mesh grille add to the
style and look of the speaker.
Gold-Plated Binding Posts: The Radius 45 is fitted with
gold-plated binding post speaker terminals that will accept bare wire (up
12AWG), pin-connectors, spade connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual).
Mounting Options: Self adhesive rubber feet are provided to
prevent movement due to vibration when using the Radius 45 loudspeakers on a
table, shelf, or stand. And thanks to its rear-panel 1/4"-20 threaded insert,
the Radius 45 can also be fixed to a wall using an optional wall-mount bracket
