The Radius 270 is a super-slim floor-standing loudspeaker designed for genuine full-range performance in a serious stereo system or multi-channel audio/video system. The R270 employs an array of technical developments derived directly from Monitor Audio’s award winning reference speaker ranges. Excellent fidelity coupled with an elegant profile provides the opportunity to enjoy great sound and discreet design all in one package. Real wood veneer and lacquer finishes supply a lustrous appeal, giving the Radius 270 a tactile sense of quality that feels at home anywhere - in contrast to the rather stark, impersonal, metallic character of many A/V satellites.
New 4” C-CAM® bass driver - Radius features all new bass drivers with concave cone profiles, introduced by the Monitor Audio top-of-the-range Platinum speakers and applied subsequently to Gold GX. Extensive research and FEA modelling allowed Monitor Audio to perfect the relationship between the new radiating diaphragm and its motor design, introducing larger motor sizes and voice coils for increased excursion, higher power capability and reduced distortion.
New C-CAM gold dome tweeter - optimised to deliver the finest and widest performance within the compact Radius cabinets. It benefits from a more efficient rear-venting design, releasing air trapped and compressed at the back of the tweeter dome, and guiding it around the drive assembly to a rear-loading chamber.
HiVe®II port design - Straight from Platinum’s design blueprint, the HiVe reflex port makes its Radius debut. It’s 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 air moves in and out of the port more efficiently, for a faster more dynamic bass response.
Single through-bolt driver fixing provides mechanical de-coupling and enhanced mid-band clarity and resolution. The through-bolts also act as rigid cross bracing to give a very solid non-resonant cabinet.
