applications, our Silver RX speakers have the perfect
mix of virtues for 21st Century HD entertainment.
Innovation
Silver RX Drivers
By refining our computer-aided Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
we have developed new ways to shape our core driver
material C-CAM® in the cause of even greater fidelity. C-CAM
(Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium) is very light and
very strong and so is ideal for our driver cones, but as we’ve
discovered, it can be made to perform ever more efficiently
and effectively.
About RX Tweeters
The new C-CAM® gold dome tweeter now extends high
frequency performance to beyond 35 kHz, enabling the full
potential of current and future wide-band HD audio and
cinema formats to be realised. A newly damped rear chamber
provides greater control for a smoother more accurate
response.
About RX Bass and Mid-Range Drivers
Advanced FEA simulations have also helped the process
of fine tuning the RST® (Rigid Surface Technology) C-CAM®
mid-range/bass drivers, originally created for our celebrated
Gold Reference speakers and now incorporated by the Silver
RX range. Their super-stiff dimpled profiles are now more
resistant to break-up under high drive conditions and so
produce a wider range of purer frequencies. Each driver’s
rigid, non magnetic cast polymer chassis is vented to
improve airflow cooling and to equalise pressure around the
driver motor, resulting in the ability to play louder and cleaner.
Bolt-through Driver Design
Single bolt-through driver fixings have the dual effect of
improving cabinet rigidity while further reducing vibration at
the driver/cabinet interface. By this innovative method, drivers
are mounted on a single tensioned through-bolt, which is
secured to the back of the cabinet. The bolt not only acts as a
rigid cabinet brace to reduce box colouration, it removes the
need for conventional driver fixings as well, effectively
decoupling the driver and baffle to eliminate another source of
unwanted resonance. The result is a more fluid communication
of mid-range frequencies, and with the absence of front driver
fixings, a cleaner more refined overall appearance– especially
in tandem with RX’s ‘invisible’ magnetic grille location.
HiVe®II (High Velocity) Reflex Port
Developed for the flagship Gold Signature range, the HiVe®II
reflex port is shaped to have the same effect on airflow as
a gun-barrel on a bullet. Rifled groves inside the port help
to accelerate the flow and reduce turbulence, so that air
moves in and out of the port more efficiently for a faster more
dynamic bass response.
RX1
The diminutive RX1 is configured to offer an impressively
natural, rhythmic sound in a beautifully compact and
practical form. Standing at just 312mm tall, the RX1 will
deliver faithful crystal-clear definition and power from
just about anywhere. Perfect for music and film sound
where space is at a premium, the RX1 provides elite
Monitor Audio quality to refresh and enliven your system.
RX1AV-12
The ideal RX1 multi-channel system utilises RX1s and
the RX centre for the front channels, with the discreet
RX-FX speakers in the surround role; all underpinned by the
awesome RXW-12 subwoofer.
RX2
The larger RX2 is designed as an audiophile compact
2-way speaker, having the efficiency and bandwidth
of a much larger speaker, while being easier to
position around the home. It offers extended high
frequencies to resolve hidden detail, coupled with
immense

and

so
that all the delicacy and drama of your favourite
music and film sound is revealed.
RX6
The elegant floor-standing RX6 design places the new wider
bandwidth RX tweeter in concert with freshly designed 6”
C-CAM® bass and bass/mid drivers to form a balanced twoand-a-half way system. Separate chambers are used within
the enclosure to provide differential tuning for the drivers,
generating higher efficiency and exceptional low frequency
extension. For such a slim, easy-to-position speaker, the
innovative RX6 produces an extraordinarily wide bandwidth,
enhanced with a natural tonality that breathes life into
every format – even HD audio. An adjustable base plinth is
supplied for added stability.

RX8
A feat of ergonomic brilliance by our design team has
engineered the greater poise and power of a large three-way
loudspeaker into the svelte RX8. Its ultra-slim front profile
conceals a deeper cabinet, which provides the volume
needed for seismic levels of bass from dual 6” bass drivers. A
single 6” bass/mid driver delivers naturally vibrant midrange
sound, while a newly developed C-CAM® gold dome tweeter
smoothly extends high frequency performance to a point
way beyond the upper limit of the audible spectrum. Sheer
control, open dynamics and wide bandwidth illuminate the
sound of the RX8: a very big speaker disguised as a very
slender one.
RX-FX
It’s widely understood that the sound of surround
places you on the edge of your seat and at the heart
TVs cannot compete with the excitement of a properly

designed and equalised home theatre system. But

wonder why you ever thought of compromise. It’s
reconciles the problem by providing a convincing,
also immensely flexible sonically, offering direct or
enveloping timbre-consistent surround sound that
diffuse sound effects at the flick of a switch.
RXcentre
The role of a centre-channel speaker is to reproduce up to
60% of a movie soundtrack, including the critical dialogue
content. Yet by the sound of some rival systems, surprisingly
little time is devoted to its design. The exceptional RX centre
proves the old adage that you get out what you put in. It’s
been very finely calibrated to match the dynamics and timbre
of other RX speakers for a wonderfully open, detailed and
seamless front sound stage in any RX system configuration.
We’ve tuned the RX centre’s multi-driver components to
deliver the optimal combination of sonic virtue and size, so
that the velvet subtlety of whispers and the explosive force of
action scenes are conveyed with equal priority by a compact
design that’s perfect for the role.
RXW-12
Multi-channel film sound mix relies on the profound

structural underlay of a properly designed sub-bass
vital component in the enjoyment of surround sound
engine. Not only can it dredge frighteningly deep and
A/V systems. The surprisingly compact RXW-12

active subwoofer is equipped by our engineers to
HD audio soundtracks, it also adds a holistic solidity
turn your RX system (and others) truly seismic.
Using the latest switch mode power conversion techniques,
the RXW-12’s 500 watt Class D amplifier provides enough
power to control with brutal efficiency a newly designed 12”
C-CAM driver, equipped with a double stack (two magnet)
motor system and a massive 3” voice coil.
The RXW-12’s rigid, sealed 25mm (1”) MDF enclosure
is front-loaded firstly because it promotes the fastest,
deepest bass down to 20Hz and secondly for ease
of installation. Wherever you place it, top mounted
controls allow for the fine adjustment of level, turnover
and other parameters at the sub. For added convenience,
a 12V trigger provides power syncing with your AV receiver.
