The Monitor Audio Gold FX is a slim independent speaker, designed to be flush-mounted on side or rear walls, that can be tailored to be either left or right handed- and operated in either dipole or monopole mode- at the flick of a switch. In monopole mode, it delivers side or rear sound channels, driving the front-firing 6 ½" bass/mid-driver and ribbon transducer, for accurate sound tailored to match any 'Gold' speaker combination. In dipole mode the main tweeter is disengaged, and the FX uses the two pairs of side firing 4" bass/mid drivers and 25mm tweeters, combined with the front-firing bass/mid driver for precise surround effects.
The Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium Rigid Surface Technology bass/mid-range drivers deliver the performance of larger drivers, with dynamic headroom to for impressive bass extension and control, but with higher overall efficiency. Single bolt through driver fixings improves bracing, rigidity and driver/baffle de-coupling.
The Gold FX looks as good as it sounds, with selected premium quality wood veneer or high gloss lacquer finishes. Rigid 20mm MDF construction is used throughout, employing radial and cross-bracing techniques for high rigidity resulting in low cabinet colouration. Invisible magnetic grille fixings provide a sleek visual effect.
