Monitor Series 7 design highlights:
• Self-aligning magnetic grille design. Honeycomb interior corner architecture ensures a more spacious and transparent sound.
• Complete baffle redesign: MDF across the board for further reportedly increased solidity and cabinet resonance reduction; Magnetic baffle design makes it easier to remove should servicing be necessary.
• 20% overall reduction in model footprints - floor standers and center channels.
• Monitor 7 is a new size and a 3-driver model (vs. 4 drivers in previous iterations) covering the spectrum through a tweeter, mid/bass and bass driver.
• Monitor 11 is now the size of the original Monitor 9 v.6 but a 5-driver model (vs. 4 drivers in previous iterations) covering the spectrum through a tweeter, dedicated midrange driver and three bass drivers with audible improvements in sensitivity and extension
• Two new center channels have been introduced to replace the original CC-190, CC-290 and CC-390 - the new centers are known as Center 1 and Center 2 and both include decreased footprints to better fit today's a/v furniture sizes.
• Monitor Surround 1 has replaced the ADP's of the previous Monitor Series and Surround 2 featuring revised design and technology in an attempt to handle the way sound is being mastered and mixed in today' s recording studios.
