Take your music to the 'Max
We were already bowled over by Cambridge Audio's Aero 2 bookshelf speakers. Their smooth, seamless sound and surprising bass extension really opened some eyes around here. On balance, a fantastic little speaker. So when Cambridge introduced the "new and improved" Aeromax 2, we were understandably skeptical. Seriously, how much better could you possibly make the Aero 2s sound? Turns out, quite a bit!
The folks at Cambridge kept all the good bits from the Aero 2 — the wide-dispersion sound, powerful bass performance, and premium construction — then tweaked and tuned the design, and added a beautiful new high-gloss finish, to create the Aeromax 2. We think the improvements speak for themselves
Cambridge Audio's latest 4th generation BMR driver design gives the Aeromax 2 seamless wide-range sound with a crisp, detailed top-end, and a huge soundstage.
The "BMR" advantage for natural, spacious sound
The BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) driver used in Cambridge's Aeromax Series speakers features a flat surface that combines the traditional "pistonic" movement of speaker cones with a "bending-wave" movement to create sound. This allows the BMR driver to cover a much wider frequency range than conventional tweeters.
Better midrange clarity
Why does that matter? Because with most speaker systems, the crossover point between the tweeter and woofer occurs in the critical midrange frequencies, where human ears are most sensitive to distortion and differences in sound between driver types. Aeromax 2's crossover point occurs all the way down at 250 Hz, giving you clearer, more natural sound. And since the BMR driver handles all of the highs and midrange, that means the woofer can focus on what it does best — bass.
4th generation BMR driver for an even more spacious soundstage
That's not the only advantage of BMR technology. This innovative driver construction also allows Aeromax Series speakers to spread sound over a much broader area than conventional speakers. The Aeromax 2's latest 4th generation BMR features more rigid construction than previous designs for even better dispersion and a wider sweet spot. That extra-wide dispersion means you can put your speakers where you want and still enjoy deep, spacious stereo or surround sound throughout your entire room. This makes Aeromax speakers ideal for room layouts where your speaker placement options are less than optimal.
Further Aeromax refinements for even better performance
Cambridge didn't stop with just a new BMR driver — they rebuilt the Aeromax 2 from the ground up, starting with the cabinets. Each heavily braced enclosure is computer-designed to help minimize standing waves and prevent unwanted resonance from coloring the sound. This extensive bracing also locks the drivers in place to further reduce vibration for cleaner dynamics. You'll enjoy clear, sparkling highs and tight, high-accuracy bass that'll have you tapping your toes in time to the music.
Additional upgrades include an improved crossover network for superb levels of detail and transparency. New audiophile-grade speaker terminal posts and internal cabling made from high-purity, oxygen-free copper wire provide a solid and pristine signal path throughout the Aeromax 2. And finally, that gorgeous, furniture-grade high-gloss finish makes this speaker look just as good as it sounds
