Monitor 50

The Monitor 50's modern square cabinets complement the 51/2" MMP II drivers and 25 mm black C-CAM tweeters. By placing the tweeters in the top corner of the speakers, Monitor Audio has been able to reduce the size of the cabinet and give a unique appearance.

The compact dimensions, driver technology and rear port allow the speakers to perform in the most confined locations. As the cabinet is rear ported, the output is well damped and is suitable for placement close to a wall. A single set of high quality gold plated binding posts provide the connections for a suitable amplifier. The Monitor 50s certainly sound bigger than they look.

    I bet these measure poorly. Tweeters are above the mid for a reason.
    You want the tweeter as close to ear height as possible. In larger speakers, stacking the drivers vertically makes sense from a packaging perspective, other than center speakers where reduced height is better than reduced width. When the drivers are as small as this, packaging is fairly moot. What measurable differences do you propose exist?
