Our take on the Cambridge Audio Minx S215-V2 by Crutchfield's Dave Bar
Tiny speakers produce enveloping surround sound
Transform your living space into a private cinema with the Minx S215-V2 surround sound speaker system. Designed for hi-fi sound on a low-fi budget, this incredibly compact system will fill your room with a tonal quality that has to be heard to be believed. You'll be amazed by the accuracy, detail, and realism from the five tiny satellite speakers that measure just 3" cubed. The matching 200-watt subwoofer measures just 9" cubed, delivering awesome bass without eating into your living space. Whether you're watching a gritty action thriller or engrossed in the big game, you'll enjoy epic surround sound with surprising punch.
Engineered with passion
The five Minx Min 11 satellite speakers included with this system were carefully designed and tested at Cambridge Audio's London facility by a team fueled with a passion for incredible sound. They completely rewrite the rulebook of what's possible from miniature speakers thanks to BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) technology. BMR drivers use a flat speaker surface that combines the traditional "pistonic" movement of speaker cones with a "bending-wave" movement to create sound. It's what allows the Minx Min 11s to produce a much wider frequency response than comparably sized speakers. You'll also experience a much broader sound dispersion across your entire room, for the most enveloping sound imaginable. Plus, the compact, acoustically damped cabinets offer extreme rigidity, so you hear pure, clean sound no matter how intense your movies get.
Awesome bass from a hideaway sub
The matching Minx X200 subwoofer uses a 6-1/2" forward firing driver made of a single piece of super-strong, aerospace-grade aluminum for amazing punch and attack. It's paired with dual passive radiators that add some serious mid-bass boost. Cambridge Audio's software engineers specially designed the sophisticated Digital Signal Processor (DSP) in this sub, allowing it to pump out sensational bass from such a compact enclosure. You may even be fooled into thinking the X200 is several times its size.
Speakers that fit your lifestyle
Naturally, you want your speakers to fit into your home, rather than designing your living space around your system. That's why the compact Minx Min 11 satellites can be mounted to your wall, placed on stands, or positioned on a tabletop using optional hardware. You can mix and match by adding more Minx Min 11 speakers or the larger Minx Min 21 models to create a 7.1- or even a 9.1-channel system to fill larger living rooms.
Fantastic small form 5.1 surround set. Working with challenging room design aspects, these were the perfect solution to blend in yet still produce a crisp room filling dialogue and sound. Woofer adds low end punch.

Minx Satellite Speakers: The Cambridge Audio Minx S215 speaker system includes five matching Cambridge Audio Minx MIN11 satellite speakers.
BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) Technology: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN11 satellite speakers feature a single 2.25" BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) driver. 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 speakers 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. The BMR drivers also utilize ultra-compact push-pull neodymium magnets for greater efficiency.
Compact Acoustic Suspension Enclosure: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN11 satellite speaker is only 3.0625" (w) x 3.0625" (h) x 3.75" (d). The Minx MIN11 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 MIN11 includes a detachable cloth grille. The Minx MIN11 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 MIN11 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 MIN11 satellite speakers can be table-top mounted, wall mounted, or placed on a floor-standing speaker stand.
- Table-Top Mount: The Minx MIN11 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 (779MTSA, sold separately) available, which allows placement on a desk, table, or shelf.
- Wall Mount: The Minx MIN11s 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, sold separately).
Frequency Response: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN11 satellite speaker features a 120Hz to 20,000Hz frequency range.
Power Handling: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN11 satellite speaker can handle 15 to 50 watts (RMS).
Minx X200 Powered Subwoofer: The Cambridge Audio Minx S215 speaker system includes the Cambridge Audio Minx X200 powered subwoofer.
Digital Signal Processor (DSP): The Cambridge Audio X200 powered subwoofer features built-in Digital Signal Processing (DSP) which allows for smaller cabinet construction without sacrificing bass response.
200W Amplifier: The Cambridge Audio X200 powered subwoofer is equipped with a 200 watt (RMS) digital amplifier for increased efficiency and reliability.
6.5" Woofer: The Cambridge Audio X200 powered subwoofer uses a one-piece, aerospace-grade aluminum, front-firing 6.5" cone woofer to move air with incredible efficiency.
Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR): The Cambridge Audio X200 powered subwoofer utilizes two side-firing 6.5" auxiliary bass radiators (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 X200 powered subwoofer has a rated frequency response of 39-200 Hz.
Controls: The Cambridge Audio X200 powered subwoofer is equipped with the following rear-panel controls.
- Volume Control: The Cambridge Audio X200 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 X200 powered subwoofer offers a continuously variable low-pass filter, adjustable from 50-200 Hz.
- 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 performance.
- Auto On/Off: The X200's Auto On/Off feature will switch the powered subwoofer On and Off automatically by signal detection.
Connections: The Cambridge Audio X200 powered subwoofer is equipped with the following rear-panel connections.
- RCA Input: The powered subwoofer has gold plated left & right RCA line-level inputs for use with receivers having a subwoofer or stereo preamp output that do not contain their own low-pass crossover. The 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 powered subwoofer.
- Wireless Port: This proprietary 5-pin port is designed to connect the Cambridge Audio Wireless Module (not yet available).
High-Gloss Finish: The Cambridge Audio X200 powered subwoofer is 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.

3 questions already asked
These speakers all require standard wire connections, including the subwoofer, which uses a standard subwoofer cable connection. By the way, I absolutely love the sound out of these speakers (paired with a Denon AVR -X4000). This combination was recommended by a Crutchfield advisor, and I could not be happier.

2 answers On the image on this page for the S215-V2, the X200 subwoofer is shown with a wireless port. On the X200 page, the wireless port is not present on the image. I also saw an old video with a Cambridge Audio rep talking about wireless being available after 2011. Is the X200 available in a wireless configuration? [ ArchiProf Mar 08, 2015 ]
Thanks! [ ArchiProf Mar 09, 2015 ]
Michael: My subwoofer does not have the wireless configuration available. I do like the subwoofer. It provides great sound that fills the room. [ JOHN A Mar 09, 2015 ]
