Why Minx sounds better than the rest...

The science behind Minx is difficult to explain, but much of the magic comes courtesy of an intensive two-year development programme by Cambridge Audio’s engineers to achieve extraordinary sound from incredibly small cabinets.

BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) technology features in each Minx satellite speaker

Cambridge Audio BMR drivers utilise patented ‘bending wave’ principles normally seen in advanced flat panel speakers combined with pistonic movement (backwards and forwards) like in a traditional speaker design. This bestows Minx with a much wider frequency response than comparable style speakers for much deeper and more powerful bass frequencies plus incredibly spacious sound. Quite naturally you want your speakers to fit into your home rather than designing your living space around your system, and once again Cambridge Audio’s BMR adds value by delivering a much broader sound dispersion across the entire room, avoiding the typical ‘sweet spot’ pitfall of other style speakers, for the most enveloping sound imaginable.

How does BMR speaker technology work?

Pistonic speaker driver
A normal speaker works like a piston - back and forth. Sure has the ability to sound great, but requires separate woofer / tweeter to cover mid-bass / high frequencies properly. (Not ideal when space is limited.) 
 
Flat panel speakers
A flat panel driver design uses vibrational modes to create sound across a smaller surface area but this design suffers from limited frequency range. It simply can't deliver the bass notes you need for true musical pleasure.  
 
BMR speaker technology
The patented BMRTM driver technology we use in Minx Air combines pistonic action (to enable lower frequency response than flat panel) and vibrational modes in one drive unit. Benefits of BMR include wide frequency response from one driver, slimline design (ideal for applications where space is limited) and wider dispersion than regular pistonic drivers.

The digital subwoofer advantage...

Minx’s three powerful subwoofers offer equally significant technological advances, implementing a forward firing driver for amazing punch and attack combined with an innovative Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR) to deliver superior efficiency and enable a much smaller footprint.

They also feature a sophisticated Digital Signal Processor (DSP) designed by Cambridge Audio’s software engineers for the most sensational performance from unfeasibly tiny enclosures. Regardless of your room’s shape and size Minx’s DSP and simple set-up adjustments ensure your system is perfectly customised for placement almost anywhere.

But critically, every Minx system sounds truly integrated for the purest sound whether you’re enjoying a live classical concert or an adrenaline-pumping car chase.

Awesome bass... hidden anywhere you like

Minx subs implement sophisticated Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR) technologies for incredible efficiency from a tiny footprint.

Specifications

Min 11 satellite speaker

 
Frequency Response: 120Hz-20kHz
Impedance: 8 Ohms compatible
Recommended amplifier power 25 - 200W *
Drive units: 1 x 2.25” BMR
Dimensions (W x H x D) 78 x78 x 85mm (3.1 x 3.1 x 3.3”)
Weight 0.43Kg (0.95lbs)

  * Using a high powered amplifier lower down its volume scale results in lower distortion and better sound. Of course if you hear a distorted sound or mechanical ‘crack’ as the speakers hit their end stops, you are playing the
speakers too loud and this may cause damage. With an AVR the Min11/21 speakers should be set to ‘small’ with a crossover frequency of 140Hz. In this configuration, power handling is considerable increased
