It has been over 2 decades since Monitor Audio first released their Bronze speaker series back in 2006. The most recent 6th generation release of the Bronze speakers features both cosmetic and structural cabinet design modifications.
The Monitor Audio Bronze 6G speaker series is made up of eight new models. Starting with the Bronze 50 and 100 bookshelf speakers; and then moving onto the Bronze 200 and 500 floorstanders, Bronze C150 center speaker, Bronze FX rear speaker, Bronze W10 subwoofer and finally Bronze AMS Dolby Atmos speaker module that can be added on top of an existing standmount or floorstanding unit. The Bronze FX and Bronze AMS speakers come in black and white options, with the rest of speakers available in a choice of four finishes: black, white, walnut and urban grey.
One of the changes with the newest 6G Bronze is a new Uniform Dispersion (UD) Waveguide. The curved profile of the Waveguide provides a controlled directivity pattern and increased radiation efficiency. This works in concert with Monitor Audio’s C-CAM Gold Dome Tweeter for a more even sound dispersion, improved time alignment and wider audio dispersion. The newly designed C-CAM mid-bass drivers feature updated cone geometries and Damped Concentric Mode (DCM) technology. As a result, crossover frequency is reduced improving mid-bass response and performance. The lower crossover frequency widens the directivity around the crossover region by redistributing some energy to the tweeter.
The speaker cabinet sizing has increased as well as updated cabinet bracing, resulting in the lowering of unwanted vibration through the cabinet walls. The floorstanding models Bronze 200 and Bronze 500 feature steel outriggers at the bottom of the speaker cabinet with top spinners for use on carpeted (spikes) or hard floors (rubber feet).
Another noticeable and critical change to the 6th generation Bronze speakers is the The HiVe II reflex port being moved to the rear of the speaker. The reason for this is to improve the ease and flexibility of positioning speakers without negatively affecting performance.
In all, we are very impressed with Monitor Audio's latest refresh of their renown Bronze series speakers. Whether you are building a home theater setup or simply want great sound for rooms of all sizes, these very affordable speakers are extremely versatile and provide a classic contemporary look that is very pleasing to the eye.
