A composite ‘sandwich’ structure made from ultra-thin low mass skins, bonded to a honeycomb Nomex® core material. It is very light and very strong, meaning that it can respond with great speed without bending - just like a perfect piston. RDT II uses C-CAM for the front skin, while the rear skin is made from a woven carbon fibre material. We discovered that the new structure reduces distortion by over 8 dB above 300 Hz, which makes RDT II the lowest distortion cone technology in Monitor Audio’s history.
