The M5i two-way bass reflex speaker may be the baby of the new series, but its performance belies its size. It is equally at home in a two-channel or home theatre application. As you would expect, it is fully shielded magnetically.
The M5i includes our revised Epos 25mm (1 in.) low distortion metal dome tweeter, designed to have smooth, clear extended treble. This tweeter features a strong die-cast aluminium alloy face plate, moulded surround, ferrite magnet and Ferrofluid cooling.
The new Epos 140mm (5.5in.) mid-range woofer reproduces dynamic, natural bass and mid-range frequencies. This robust drive unit has a die-cast aluminium alloy chassis and phase plug, with contoured moulded polypropylene cone. To reproduce bass cleanly and powerfully, it is loaded with a port flared at both ends, which reduces turbulence and distortion. The crossover is centred on 3kHz and incorporates film capacitors in critical locations.
The bi-wirable input panel is made from solid anodised aluminium alloy, with sturdy high-spec terminals suited for spade lug or other types of plugs. High-grade metal links join the terminals together and can be removed for separate connection to each driver.
The front and rear baffles of the cabinet are 25mm (1 in.) thick to reduce unwanted vibration and coloration. In a choice of three pattern matched real wood veneers, the M5i will be equally at home in a traditional or contemporary setting. With its stylish silk cloth grille it integrates easily with home furnishings.
