The role of a centre-channel speaker is to reproduce up to 60% of a movie soundtrack, including the critical dialogue content, yet by the sound of some rival systems, surprisingly little time is devoted to its design. The exceptional RX Centre proves the old adage that you get out what you put in. It’s been very finely calibrated to match the dynamics and timbre of other RX speakers for a wonderfully open, detailed and seamless front sound stage in any RX system configuration. We’ve tuned the RX Centre’s multi-driver components to deliver the optimal combination of sonic virtue and size, so that the velvet subtlety of whispers and the explosive force of action scenes are conveyed with equal priority by a compact design that’s perfect for the role.

The gold dome tweeter is formed from a ceramic-coated aluminium/magnesium alloy, gold anodised to a specific thickness for ideal stiffness and damping characteristics. Its new profile and surround geometry have been developed using advanced modelling tools, to provide the optimum qualities for accurate sound reproduction. The new design moves the first order of breakup to beyond 35kHz, producing a linear response way beyond audibility, which matches the wide frequency bandwidth available from HD music and cinema sound formats.
The gold dome is thinner, lighter, more rigid and therefore more efficient than domes made from other materials which are prone to distortion in the audio band.
The Rigid Surface Technology (RST) cone profile is inspired by the Japanese art of Origami, which demonstrates how a very light material (like paper) can be strengthened and made more rigid by making small and precise folds on its surface. Monitor Audio has applied this principle in designing the CAM/RST cones for the GX and RX ranges. Developed and perfected using sophisticated computer modelling (Finite Element Analysis), the GX mid and bass driver cones have been strengthened by a series of radial ribs; the RX driver cones by a pattern of dimples. Our simulations have proved that RST significantly increases cone rigidity, allowing the radiating surfaces to resist mechanical bending forces, which can twist the shape of conventional driver cones to produce distorted sound. The strengthening effect of RST means that we can use thinner, lighter and more responsive C-CAM cones, which provide speed and accuracy while offering greatly reduced distortion. The RST patterns also help to displace standing waves that can propagate on the cone's surface.
