Our take on the Monitor Audio Bronze Center by Crutchfield's Kramer Crane
The shining star of your Bronze home theater
Building a Monitor Audio Bronze series surround sound system? Then the Bronze Center is the perfect choice for your all-important center channel. It uses two 5-1/2" C-CAM woofers and a 1" gold dome tweeter to create lifelike dialogue and sound effects. You'll enjoy a rock-solid center image, and smooth natural sound that lets you get the most out of movies soundtracks, TV shows, and sports broadcasts.

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 boosting aesthetics
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.
