Reflecting the spirit and ambition of the Bronze Reference range, the BR5 is a wholesale re-working of the established B4 floor-standing model.
We’ve slimmed down the cabinet for a more desirable profile, replacing the larger drivers of the B4 with potent 5 1/2" bass and bass/mid-range designs, which provide a remarkable blend of punch, deep bass extension and control.
The BR5’s 2 1/2-way system is optimised by utilising an integral structure of dedicated driver chambers, hitherto employed exclusively by our more expensive loudspeakers. Benefiting from additional cross-bracing, the BR5’s cabinet is especially rigid, liberating its sound from the boxy colourations that afflict lesser designs. The result is an astonishing mix of clarity, exuberance and power from a deceptively slender loudspeaker, which transcends the conventional understanding of ‘entry-level’.
