Apex is a 'flagship' range of versatile compact speakers. Blending elite styling with the advanced technologies of our award-winning 'Platinum' 'GX' and 'RX' hi-fidelity speakers, the Apex range achieves a level of design integrity, performance and versatility that raises the bar for the compact sat/sub speaker system market.
The three model line-up is made from rigid die-cast aluminium coated in a sumptuous black metallic or pearl white metallic high gloss lacquer. Two satellite speakers, the A10 and the larger A40, and a powerful 500W (RMS) active subwoofer, the AW-12, share a beautifully curvaceous design, which oozes a sense of luxury and style to complement the finest contemporary interiors. A C-CAM® bass driver has been engineered exclusively for the Apex design. It uses the high performance RST® dimpled cone geometry, successfully employed by our RX hi-fi speakers. The 140mm RST cone is suspended on a rigid die-cast aluminium chassis and driven by an over-sized motor system featuring a high power voice coil with vented cooling. Paired with the bass driver is an optimised 25mm C-CAM gold-dome tweeter, FEA-tuned to reach beyond 35kHz. The drivers are secured to the cabinet using a single central through-bolt fixing, which has the advantage of mechanically de-coupling the driver and baffle to enhance mid-band clarity and resolution. Each bolt acts as a cabinet brace to further reduce resonance. Innovative high quality metal wall brackets supplied with the A10 and A40 are custom designed to make installation quick, easy and secure. When installed, the speaker can be tilted precisely for the best stereo or surround sound imaging. A stylish floor stand for the A10 is available, which is pre-wired internally for a superior 'wire-free' look.
Due to its precision-engineered voicing, the Apex range can be mixed in any combination of satellites and subwoofer to match room size, shape and acoustics, delivering the audio range and quality of much larger hi fi speakers in an extremely stylish and space-friendly way.

Apex - What Hi-Fi? Award Winner 2011
Best style speaker package £2000+, Awards 2011. An expensive style system, to be sure, but also a fabulous one.
BEST STYLE SPEAKER PACKAGE £2000+"You certainly can't buy a better made, better finished or (to our eyes, at least) better looking package at the price."
Apex has the pecs"...High-frequencies are smooth as silk, speech couldn't be clearer if the actors were in the room and the rear soundstage is willfully expansive. And with music, this system nailed the emotion and energy of any recording I threw at it. Clean, full bodied vocals, metronomic timing and wonderful detail reproduction make for a spine-tingling listen and reveal it to be a fantastic all-rounder."
The holy grail of style speaker systems"It offers the sort of powerful, insightful audiophile sound that you don’t automatically associate with satellite speakers, a result of the astonishing build quality and clever technology that lies within each unit."
Monitor Audio raises the style bar"It's muscular when called upon, but articulate and beautifully integrated too, with little audible sign of the crossover from speakers to subwoofer."
