Marketing Information

The slender BX5 represents a careful re-tuning of the acclaimed BR5 floorstanding model, adding further bandwidth and resolution to a recognized class act. Its sophisticated 2 1/2-way system of twin 140mm (5 1/2") C-CAM drivers and 25mm (1") C-CAM tweeter is perfected through a series of internal chambers providing the optimum operating environment for each driver and lending further rigidity to the cabinet. For such a modestly priced speaker, the BX5 is exceedingly coherent, having the transparency to expose the texture of complex musical passages and the control to communicate the natural dynamics of every performance. Astride the driver-matched BX Center in a multichannel system, the BX5 will deliver a captivating blend of stratospheric highs, percussive mid-band and gripping bass extension for mesmerizing three-dimensional AV fidelity.
