    Monoprice has just released a new line of bookshelf speakers, with matching center channel speaker, that is aimed directly at affordable home theater buyers.

    The Monolith Air Motion Cinema 5 Series is a rather small speaker, measuring 11.2" x 7.4" x 9.8" and weighing just over 14 pounds. It uses a speaker complement that Monoprice is calling an "Air Motion Tweeter (AMT) system, which is both stronger than conventional ribbon tweeters and produces a nearly flat frequency response to 25kHz" and a 5.25-inch mid-bass driver whose cone is made of New Zealand pulp paper.

    The speaker is a ported design that comes complete with a beefy-looking set of binding posts on the back.

    The Air Motion Cinema Center uses the same folded tweeter, two of the 5.25" drivers, but adds a 3" mid-range to the mix. I would suspect that the 5.25" drivers are identical to the ones in the bookshelf version, that have been crossed-over to serve as dedicated bass drivers.

    Quick Specs:

    • 100 watts (RMS) / 200 watts (peak) power handling capacity
    • Air Motion Tweeter made using a pleated, ultra lightweight polyimide diaphragm
    • 3" mid-range cone made using New Zealand pulp paper
    • 2x 5.25" woofer cones made using New Zealand pulp paper
    • 60 Hz ~ 25 kHz ±3.2dB frequency response
    • 8 ohms nominal impedance
    • 87dB sensitivity
    • Braced and reinforced cabinet made from high-density fiberboard
    • Real wood Black Oak veneer finish


    The Monolith Air Motion Cinema Center Channel Speaker sells for $299.99.
