The PRO-80 is priced for entry-level but its material and design sophistication is of a higher order, meeting Monitor Audio's world-famous quality standards. Its optimised driver systems feature the brand's trusted MMPII cone bass units co-axially aligned with a 1" (25mm) pivoting fabric dome tweeter, which can be directed for maximum clarity. The new PRO-IC designs connect through gold-plated push terminals and install easily via robust and reliable dogleg fixings, which are covered by a magnetic trimless grille for heightened convenience and beautiful flush-fitted concealment.
Gold Dome C-CAM
The gold dome tweeter is formed from a ceramic-coated aluminium/magnesium alloy, gold anodised to a specific thickness for ideal stiffness and damping characteristics. Its new profile and surround geometry have been developed using advanced modelling tools, to provide the optimum qualities for accurate sound reproduction. The new design moves the first order of breakup to beyond 35kHz, producing a linear response way beyond audibility, which matches the wide frequency bandwidth available from HD music and cinema sound formats.
Metal Matrix Polymer driver cones have a polypropylene base loaded with metallic particles to offer a rigid and responsive structure. They are manufactured using a sophisticated high-pressure injection process, which modulates cone thickness at critical points to optimise stiffness and consistency, resulting in a superior sonic performance.
Tri-Grip Dog Fixings
All models feature a unique Tri-Grip fixing design. This 3-position 'dog' style fixing provides a greater contact surface area than other types, whilst saving installation time. The Tri-Grip fixings are made from a tough re-enforced polymer, giving a secure fixing without the risk of over-tightening.
