Monitor Audio Cinergy: new range of speakers for dedicated home cinema rooms

The well-known British manufacturer Monitor Audio has introduced a new range of home theater speakers. It’s about the series Monitor Audio Cinergy, a new premium audio system designed for dedicated rooms. This new range is made up of three loudspeaker models and a passive subwoofer. They all have THX Ultra certified and they show off a design that allows them to be installed both built-in and hanging on the wall.

Monitor Audio claims that its Cinergy system is “highly adaptable”since it is designed “knowing that no two installations are the same”. What do they mean by this exactly? To ensure that the system is perfect in all types of rooms, Monitor Audio Cinergy speaker tweeter and midrange driver arrays can be rotated. This allows the speakers to be placed both horizontally and vertically. On the other hand, in the larger model, this array can be swapped with one of the two bass drivers, thus being able to further fine-tune the sound profile.

Besides, speakers feature integrated handles as well as feet and isolation stands to counteract vibration depending on the installation method.

Complete the Cinergy range of Monitor Audio the Monitor Audio Cinergy Sub15, a 15-inch ultra-high-excursion C-CAM driver passive subwoofer. Despite having a large woofer, the Sub15 is only 28 cm deep, so we can install it on the wall without too much trouble. Of course, it weighs more than 38 kg.

This is possible because we are facing a passive subwoofer, that is, it needs external amplification. Monitor Audio recommends using the IA800-2C amplifierwhich is capable of powering a couple of Sub15s thanks to its tremendous output of 2x800W.

By combining some units of the Cinergy 300 and the Cinergy Sub15 we can create a “wall of sound” behind the screen, thus achieving professional cinema performance.

The new ones Monitor Audio Cinergy will hit the market next month July. Its price has not been revealed at the moment, but you assume that they will not be exactly cheap speakers.
