Monitor Audio Radius

MonitorAudioRadiusNew

The Range

Back in the days before anyone had ever heard of ‘designer’ products and hi-fi came with coffin-like enclosures and racks of chunky boxes, Monitor Audio invented the Radius Series of stylish and versatile speaker systems.

So radical was the idea that it changed expectations of home entertainment forever.

Now, imbued with a rich heritage of innovation and energised by our latest driver technologies, the next generation of Radius has arrived, complete with new models, greater versatility and higher, wider, deeper sound.

Living with great audio has never been easier.

With its jewel-like size and lustre, the appeal of new Radius is truly timeless, but its flexibility and performance set new standards.

The eight-strong model line-up includes still slimmer versions of the 225 centre speaker and Radius One soundbar, together with a new Radius 200 centre-channel for shelf or rack mounting, and two enormously powerful yet super-compact active subwoofers: Radius 380 and 390.

Main Features

  • Major leap forward in design and performance over Radius HD
  • New dedicated centre channel speaker
  • New C-CAM® (Ceramic-Coated Aluminium Magnesium) bass drivers
  • Gold C-CAM® tweeters
  • All new on-wall models are 40% slimmer than Radius HD
  • Compatible with optional floor-stands, which feature an internal (pre-wired) cable management system
  • Available in three stunning finishes; high gloss black lacquer, high gloss white lacquer and walnut real wood veneer.

Radius 45

Radius 45

 

The diminutive Radius 45 cube is the epitome of Radius innovation: a speaker so small has no right to sound as good as it does, yet miraculously the 45 reveals astonishing mid-range clarity and high frequency ambience from its 3” (75mm) MMP®II mid-bass driver and rear-firing 3/4” (19mm) C-CAM® tweeter.

It’s perfect for ultra-discreet sound all around the home, or partnered with the Radius 380 sub for explosive stereo from an ultra-compact system.

The new Radius 45 is also good for surround sound duties in a smaller room. It incorporates a single point ¼” x UNC (20TPI) wall fixing for use with the optional optional MASM speaker mount or any standard wall bracket.

Alternatively, fit the 45 to our Radius floor stands, which utilise innovative floor-level connections for a luxury wire-free look.

Features

  • 3″ MMP®II Driver. All drivers are dedicated and model specific, with each model in the Radius series being designed and voiced individually.
  • 3/4″ gold C-CAM® tweeter, rear-firing to enhance sound dispersion characteristics
  • Single through-bolt driver fixing. Provides mechanical de-coupling properties resulting in enhanced mid-band clarity and resolution. Through-bolts also act as rigid cross bracing to give a very solid non-resonant cabinet.
  • Single point ¼”x20TPI wall fixing. Use the optional Monitor Audio speaker mount or any standard wall bracket
  • Optional floor-stand with internal (pre-wired) cable management system.
  • Walnut veneer, gloss black or gloss white finishes.

Radius 90

Radius 90

The original hi-fi mini monitor, and respected by all. Radius 90 continues to evolve, delivering a greater size-defying performance than ever before.

New Radius 90 incorporates a 4” (100mm) C-CAM® bass driver and 1” (25mm) C-CAM tweeter for a tuneful, controlled and powerful sound in pairs or combined as front and rear speakers in an AV system along with the 200 or 225, and the 380/ 390 subs.

Use the optional MASM speaker mount or any standard wall bracket for wall mounting via the 90’s single point fixing. Optional floor stands expand the installation possibilities still further.

Features

  • New 4” C-CAM® bass driver – Radius features all new bass drivers with concave cone profiles, introduced by our top-of-the-range Platinum speakers and applied subsequently to Gold GX. Extensive research and FEA modelling have allowed us to perfect the relationship between the new radiating diaphragm and its motor design, introducing larger motor sizes and voice coils for increased excursion, higher power capability and reduced distortion.
  • New C-CAM gold dome tweeter – optimised to deliver the finest and widest performance within the compact Radius cabinets. It benefits from a more efficient rear-venting design, releasing air trapped and compressed at the back of the tweeter dome, and guiding it around the drive assembly to a rear-loading chamber.
  • HiVe®II port design – Straight from Platinum’s design blueprint, the HiVe reflex port makes its Radius debut. It’s shaped to have the same effect on airflow as a gun-barrel on a bullet. Rifled grooves inside the port help to accelerate the flow and reduce turbulence, so air moves in and out of the port more efficiently, for a faster more dynamic bass response.
  • Single through-bolt driver fixing provides mechanical de-coupling and enhanced mid-band clarity and resolution. The through-bolts also act as rigid cross bracing to give a very solid non-resonant cabinet.
  • Single point ¼”x20TPI wall fixing. Use the optional Monitor Audio speaker mount or any standard wall bracket

Radius 225

Radius 225

 

The slender Radius 225 is even slimmer than its predecessor.

At just 65mm in depth, the 225 is the perfect match with today’s ultra-thin displays. Use it as a centre channel or main speaker: its acoustic design of twin 4” (100mm) C-CAM® mid/bass drivers astride a 1” (25mm) C-CAM tweeter delivers superb accuracy from horizontal and vertical positions.

Extend bass further by adding the awesome 380 or 390 subs for breathtaking full-range AV or stereo sound. The new 225 may be thinner physically, but its performance will fill the air with exhilarating audio wall-to-wall. A dedicated wall bracket is included with the 225.

Radius One

Radius One

The RadiusONE takes over from the original Radius soundbar with a beefed up driver complement in a purer, acoustically-matched configuration.

It incorporates a string of C-CAM® drivers arranged in three sets of 100mm (4”) bass driver/ 25mm (1”) tweeter pairings, each with its own dedicated reflex-ported chamber.

It’s a bit like three Radius 90s in a single convenient cabinet, contoured to match the widescreen aesthetics of larger flat TVs.

With all this technology onboard you’d expect the RadiusONE to occupy the same space as its predecessor. In fact it’s smaller.

The innovative shallow-profile drivers introduced by the new Radius series allow us to generate the triple impact of left, centre and right channels from a cabinet reduced in depth by a whopping 40%!

Aesthetically it’s as effective – a single grille will complement the uniform look of thin displays for a beautifully integrated home theatre solution; easy to install, impressive to behold and experience.

Our dedicated wall bracket is included.

Radius 380

Radius 380

Since the last Radius series we’ve applied our research and development to the challenge of subwoofer design.

It’s relatively easy to produce large bass in a large box, but finding the optimum mix of parameters required to generate genuinely deep dynamic bass from a space efficient Radius cabinet requires a vastly more innovative approach.

We’re confident that the ultra-compact Radius 380 will elevate your expectations of what’s possible in a small enclosure: the Radius 380 and its companion 390 rewrite the rules.

Within the 380’s diminutive cube, twin side-firing 8” C-CAM® drivers – one active and one passive ABR – work in tandem with a powerful 200W cool-running Class D amplifier (double the power of its predecessor) to deliver a seismic bass foundation for films and music, distinguished by an intoxicating blend of depth and speed.

Tuned for an utterly dynamic result with Radius satellites in film and music systems, the 380 also offers Impact, Movie and Music pre-sets for easy EQ operation.

The drivers have no grilles but are colour-coded to coordinate with cabinet finish.

A 12V trigger syncs the 380 with other AV components when the system is activated.

Features

  • 18mm MDF cabinet construction with internal bracing
  • Cool-running 200W Class D amplifier with switch mode power supply (SMPSU)
  • Twin side-firing 8” C-CAM® drivers – one active and one passive ABR

Radius 390

Radius 390

Promising the astonishing low frequency resolution of the 380 with the added depth, impact and control of a larger bass engine, the Radius 390 demolishes assumptions of size versus performance.

With every earth-shaking transient, you’ll be more convinced that the compact 390 is truly ‘ground-breaking’ in form and function.

A system of twin colour-coded 10” C-CAM® active/ABR drivers is powered by a 220W Class D amplifier to expand levels of output and extension, releasing a rich layer of penetrating bass, mesmerising in its consistency and scale.

You’ll get agility as well, for rhythmic depth with music, and dynamic reinforcement in home theatre systems – all this from a beautiful little cube that liberates living space.

In tune with Radius philosophy the 390 is perfect for lifestyle but sonically it’s in a class of its own.

Enjoy rapid EQ optimisation from Impact, Music and Movie settings, and system automation via the 12V trigger.

Radius Stands

Radius Stands

Speakers as beautiful as the new Radius 90 and 45 are just too good for a conventional stand.

So we’ve designed an all-metal floor support that complements the profile of both speakers, transforming the assembly into a slender unity fit for any room.

Standing at around a metre tall, the combination places the speaker at the perfect listening height and looks elegantly streamlined while occupying minimal floor space.

The Radius stand is constructed using ARC® material, which acts to dampen vibrations, so you hear only the speaker.

For convenience and a superior wire-free appearance, high quality pure-copper cable runs internally from terminals at the floor to terminal forks at the top, onto which the speaker simply pushes.

It’s an easy, innovative way to give your new Radius speaker the support it deserves.
