1" C-CAM Gold Dome Tweeter: The newly designed 1" C-CAM Gold
Dome Tweeter extends the Bronze Center loudspeaker's frequency response to an
ultra-sonic 30kHz, allowing the full reproduction of harmonic frequencies vital
to the accurate reproduction of, say, the decay of a piano string or the crash
of a hi-hat. Within the New Bronze tweeter, an innovative venting system allows
air to flow outside the tweeter's magnet assembly into a rear loading chamber,
preventing air from being compressed at the back of the dome for lower
distortion, reduced mechanical resonance, and improved damping. Structural
improvements in dome geometry and drive mechanism have boosted accuracy and
extension at the top end of the tweeter's range as well, generating the
extraordinary high frequency quality that helps to define the sound of Bronze Center loudspeaker.
Dual 5.5" 'Dished' C-CAM Woofers: The newly designed 5.5"
'dished' C-CAM cone employs the entire cone surface to radiate more sound.
Unbroken by the centre pole-piece aperture of conventional driver designs, the
cone is inherently more rigid and efficient while being less prone to break-up
under high drive conditions, resulting in exceptional detail resolution and
life-like tonality. Ingeniously, the driver's voice coil is thermally coupled to
the back of the cone, which draws heat away from the coil for better power
handling and optimal operation at all volume levels.
Single Through-Bolt Mount: The drivers are individually
mounted on a through-bolt which fixes at the back of the cabinet and tensions
the driver at the front. Cleverly this triple-action feature braces the cabinet
structure for lower box coloration while removing the need for conventional
front fixings, reducing unwanted driver/cabinet resonance and simultaneously
High Quality Crossover: The Monitor Audio Bronze Center uses a
high quality crossover (3,000Hz) with premium grade polypropylene film
capacitors, air core, and laminated steel core inductors for signal integrity.
MDF Enclosure w/ Magnetic Grille: The Bronze Center employs a MDF
enclosure for accurate, uncolored sound. Rigid 18mm MDF construction is used
throughout the enclosure with radial and cross-bracing techniques for high
rigidity and low cabinet coloration. In addition, the center channel speaker comes
with an acoustically transparent cloth grille that attaches magnetically.
Gold-Plated Binding Posts: The bookshelf loudspeaker is
fitted with a set of gold-plated binding posts. The gold-plated binding posts
will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin connectors, spade-lugs, & banana plugs
(single only). Pre-installed plastic inserts must be removed to utilize banana
plugs (single only).
Rubber Feet: Self adhesive rubber feet are provided to prevent
movement due to vibration when using the center channel loudspeaker on a table,
shelf, or stand. The rubber feet add approximately 0.3125" to the overall height
of the center channel speaker.
Placement: The center channel can be placed either above or
below the TV screen, and as close as possible. If positioned in a cabinet or
sitting on top of the TV, ensure that the front edge is aligned with the front
edge of the TV or shelf. Where possible, the height of the center channel
speaker's tweeter should be close to the height of the front speakers' tweeter;
ideally all at ear level.
Bronze Series: Monitor Audio's Bronze series of loudspeakers
consists of two floorstanding speakers (893BZ5B/893BZ6B),
two bookshelf speakers (893BZ1B/893BZ2B),
a center channel speaker (803BZCB),
surround speaker (893BZFXB),
and powered subwoofer (893BZW10B)
- all sold separately.
