Monitor Audio's Silver 6G Series:

Revered by audiophiles around the globe, Monitor Audio's award-winning Silver Series enters its sixth generation with a host of new features to make it the best-performing ever.

Taking hi-fi and home theater performance to a new level. The new Monitor Audio SS500 Floorstander utilizes technological advances derived from Monitor Audio's top-of-the-line Platinum Series II.

It features a completely redesigned 1" gold dome tweeter for precise treble.

And it looks as it is good as it sounds, offering stunning real wood veneer, piano lacquer, and contemporary satin white finishes to suit every setting.

Continuous Uninterrupted Dish Drivers:

Unlike conventional driver cones, the new C-CAM (Ceramic-Coated Aluminum/Magnesium) RST (Rigid Surface Technology) bass and midrange drivers take the form of a continuous uninterrupted dish.

Strengthened by a uniquely dimpled surface, their greater area radiates more sound, and driven by a larger voice coil and motor, delivers greater efficiency and a cleaner, more accurate response.

Bolt-Through Driver Design:Monitor Audio SS500 Floorstander

Single bolt-through driver fixings have the dual effect of improving cabinet rigidity while further reducing vibration at the driver/cabinet interface.

By this innovative method, drivers are mounted on a single tensioned through-bolt, which is secured to the back of the cabinet.

The bolt not only acts as a rigid cabinet brace to reduce box coloration, but also removes the need for conventional driver fixings as well.

Effectively decoupling the driver and baffle to eliminate another source of unwanted resonance.

The result is a more fluid communication of mid-range frequencies, and with the absence of front driver fixings, a cleaner more refined overall appearance, especially in tandem with RX's 'invisible' magnetic grille location.

HiVe II (High Velocity) Reflex Port:

Developed for the flagship Gold Signature range, the HiVe II reflex port is shaped to have the same effect on airflow as a gun barrel on a bullet.

Rifled grooves inside the port help to accelerate the flow and reduce turbulence so that air moves in and out of the port more efficiently for a faster more dynamic bass response.

Great sound starts with a high-quality enclosure:

The clear, distortion-free sound of the Silver 500 is in part due to its carefully designed rock-solid enclosure, which resists vibration that can color sound and reduce clarity.

The included outrigger feet screw into the bottom of the speaker to provide a sturdy foundation.

Powerful and articulate bass and midrange:

The Monitor Audio SS500 Floorstander uses two 8" woofers to dish out incredibly hard-hitting, responsive bass. In fact, this tower speaker plays all the way down to 30 Hz — a feat for any floor-stander, let alone one that doesn't take up huge swaths of real estate in your room.

A dedicated 4" midrange driver lets the woofers focus solely on low frequencies. And Monitor Audio uses an advanced crossover network to ensure smooth, full-range sound throughout this three-way speaker's frequency range.

Crystal-clear high frequencies:

The Monitor Audio SS500 Floorstander uses a 1" gold dome tweeter for clear, detailed highs and realistic reproduction of instruments, vocals, and dialogue.

Monitor Audio SS500 Floorstander

It's the same tweeter found in each of the Silver 6G speakers, so if you're building Silver Series surround sound system, you'll enjoy the tonally matched sound from every speaker in your system.

A welcome addition to your décor:

The Monitor Audio SS500 Floorstander is available in a variety of beautiful real-wood veneers or high-gloss finishes.

And Monitor Audio tops the 500 off with an attractive "floating" magnetic grille that features invisible attachments to give it a clean, classy look.
