Monitor Audio



Monitor_Audio_Logo_Black.jpgMonitor Audio was founded in 1972 and pioneered the use of metal cone drivers. They continue to produce some of the industry's most respected and consistent lines of loudspeakers. Today's C-CAM metal domes are instantly recognizable visually and audibly.

C-CAM (Ceramic-Coated Aluminum/Magnesium) is an innovative alloy material originally developed by the aerospace industry for its use as blades in jet engines. This material exhibits ideal qualities for use as loudspeaker cones. The C-CAM material is extremely rigid and light providing high overall efficiency. C-CAM is formed from an alloy of aluminum and magnesium, which is made into the cone shape by a two stage high pressure forming technique. The material undergoes stress-relieving processes throughout the manufacture to avoid surface deformation and molecular weakness. After forming the shape, the cone goes through a high temperature anodic coating process. A layer of pure ceramic (alumina) is depleted onto the surfaces, to give a completely rigid exterior. Conventional cone materials operate in the band with which they start to flex, this can be termed as the break-up or bending. This results in a large amount of audible distortion. The C-CAM cones are designed with the specific intention of having resistance to bending stress. The resulting properties of the C-CAM material are increased clarity and reduced distortion compared with conventional cone´┐Żdesigns.
