Monitor Audio's new Silver RX speaker range: more information, more pictures

More information on, and pictures of, the new Monitor Audio Silver RX range. announced this morning. Below is the complete line-up, comprising two standmounters, two floorstanders, centre and surround speakers and a subwoofers.

The RX6 floorstander combines tweeter, 15.25cm mid/bass unit and a bass driver of the same size. It's a two-and-a-half-way system, with a dual chamber bass reflex design, differential tuning and twin HiVe II ports. Selling for £750/pr, it comes with a plinth to add stability...

...As does the £1000/pr RX8 (pictured), which adds a second C-CAM bass unit and uses the newly-developed gold dome tweeter. It maintains the same slim profile as the RX6, but has a taller, deeper cabinet to aid in air-shifting duties.

All the Silver RX speakers are designed to mix and match in surround systems, and there are three speakers in the range to enable complete multichannel systems to be built.

The Silver RX LCR, or RX Centre, sells for £300, and uses a sealed cabinet in which are mounted tweeter, mid/bass and bass units, while the £400 RXFX uses a single mid/bass driver and twin tweeters to create a switchable dipole/bipole surround speaker.

Completing the range is the RXW12 subwoofer, selling for £750 and combining a 500W Class D amplifier and a front-firing 30cm C-CAM driver.

It has a sealed enclosure for speed, a large 7.5cm voice coil, triple suspension for the driver and a a 'double stack' motor system for high power handling and low distortion.

A 12V connection allows remote switching, and the controls are mounted on the top-plate for easy access.

Monitor Audio plans to offer several packages based around these speakers: you can see the RS1AV12 system on our news story, and this is the RX6AV12, based around the smaller of the two pairs of floorstanders.
