Aero 3

Premium surround speaker

Whatever your surround sound setup, these versatile BMR® (Balanced Mode Radiator) rear speakers will vastly improve your audio. Using a BMR® driver over traditional cone drivers gives the Aero series several key advantages – adding up to a radical difference in audio quality compared to its rivals.

By replacing the traditional tweeter with a BMR driver, the Aero range offers several key advantages over rival speakers. Using the BMR shifts the crossover point between tweeter and woofer away from the usual 3kHz, right at the middle of the human ear's most sensitive hearing range, to a less problematic 250Hz. The result is a more natural, immersive and coherent sound. BMRs also offer a wider sound, so speakers can be placed in a wider range of places while still delivering excellent stereo and surround effects – making these speakers ideal for modern homes.

Configure the Aero 3 speakers either as a "bipole" surround speaker for traditional 5.1 output, or as "dual monopole" to deliver accurate 7.1 sound, without filling your room with more speakers.

Aero cabinets are designed not only to look classic, discreet and stylish, but also are constructed using CAD techniques and critical bracing to minimise distortion and maximise audio quality.
