New Bronze: Purity and Precision for the Price of an Ordinary Speaker

Monitor Audio’s story is intertwined with the evolution of our world-famous speaker lines. Driven by top-down innovation and ever more accurate acoustic analysis, each generation has grown in capability, achieving award-winning levels of quality, performance and value with every introduction. Our restless desire for the most blissful combination of great sound and design at all price points, demands that where possible we share the tech across ranges so that driver designs and analytic tools developed upstream serve to enhance ranges further down. For example this allows the New Gold series to benefit from a version of Platinum’s extraordinary C-CAM® ribbon tweeter; for Silver to inherit Gold’s ‘dished’ C-CAM driver designs, and similarly for New Bronze to absorb the latest refinements in tweeter and driver engineering from the Silver project. In many ways New Bronze has everything to gain from Monitor Audio’s dynamic forty-year design heritage. Enriched as it is with elements of Platinum, Gold and Silver, the brilliant New Bronze series will transcend the expectations of its price class and eclipse even its venerated multi-award winning predecessor Bronze BX.


New Generation, Different Class


Our latest champion moves up a gear from BX and rival budget speakers because New Bronze is simply in a class of its own. The features speak for themselves. For the first time we’re using spectacular steel-grey C-CAM driver cones for a seamless blend with finishes, available in a choice of Black Oak, Walnut, Rosemah and a new White Ash. Invisible driver fixings and floating magnetic grilles add to the impression of streamlined sophistication, lending new Bronze the look and feel of a premium range. It sounds like one as well. Drawing on our flagship technologies we’ve over-engineered the acoustic design to deliver lower distortion and a wider
response from seven beautifully matched, deceptively slender models. Combined for natural full-range music and home cinema sound, New Bronze will transform the quality of your home entertainment at a price that won’t break the bank.

Design for Sound


New Bronze Drivers


All new C-CAM driver configurations give New Bronze the tonal accuracy and consistency of a class leader. Harnessing driver technology developed
for our acclaimed mid-market Silver models, New Bronze explodes the myth that high power handling with low distortion belongs exclusively to the expensive world of audiophile design. The proprietary bass and mid drivers responsible for Bronze’s open, expressive and naturally rhythmic quality utilise a new type of ‘dished’ C-CAM cone, which employs the entire cone surface to radiate 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. Above the drivers, a new 25mm C-CAM Gold Dome tweeter extends each system’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 new Bronze.


New Bronze System Features


Enhancing system performance is our ‘bolt-through’ driver mounting design, first devised for our Radius Series models but now adopted by all our speaker ranges. 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 colouration while removing the need for conventional front fixings, reducing unwanted driver/cabinet resonance and simultaneously boosting aesthetics. The reflex loading found on all New Bronze models (excluding Centre, FX and W10) is of the HiVe®II variety, borrowed from the Gold range, which uses rifled port grooves to speed the air in and out of the cabinet for cleaner, more powerful bass and a superior transient response. Best possible signal integrity through the crossover is supplied by polypropylene film capacitors, air core and laminated steel core inductors. With slightly higher overall impedance than their BX predecessors, the New Bronze line-up offers superior system-building flexibility with a wider choice of partnering equipment.


New Bronze Five

The slender Bronze Five delivers powerful, responsive bass lines that belie its stealthy appearance and surpass those of many much larger towers. Its 5½” C-CAM bass driver and 5½” C-CAM bass/mid driver are arranged in a two and half way system configuration, operating in separate acoustic chambers with front and rear firing HiVe II ports to provide differential tuning for higher efficiency and greater low frequency extension. The Bronze Five’s low-distortion architecture expertly combines clean, expressive mid and high frequencies with punchy room-filling bass lines delivering a naturally rhythmic and addictive blend of large-scale dynamics and detail from a surprisingly unobtrusive tower.
