The incredible Silver 500 floorstander from Monitor Audio features a pair of powerful, long-throw 8-inch C-CAM bass drivers in each cabinet, delivering punchy bass right down to an earth-shaking 30 Hz alongside exquisite treble and captivating mid-range. With this masterpiece, we guarantee you won’t need an extra sub to deliver the most demanding music tracks to the full.
While assured of incredible scale and breath-taking dynamics from Monitor Audio’s bespoke bass drivers, you are guaranteed clean mid-range, without a hint of distortion, and a delicate, detailed treble thanks to perfect drive unit matching. All bass and mid-range drivers feature the Silver Series’ signature RST Cone profile.
High overall sensitivity and easy loading make the new Silver 500 easy to drive and capable of delivering amazing results in your audio system. In fact, a modestly powered high-quality amplifier is all you need to fill a large room with volume levels that approach live music. And, with just 12 inches (30 cm) needed between the speaker and wall, to allow the system to breathe and perform optimally, the Silver 500 is perfect where space is tight.
