Get to know this product.

The supremely versatile A40 can be used vertically or horizontally to provide electrifying audio realism characterised by soaring dynamics and low distortion. Equipped with twin Apex bass drivers, the A40 excels at low frequency depth and mid-band evenness over a wide listening area. It radiates with the full force of a single 8” bass driver, but has the advantage of superior power handling and a wonderfully smooth audio consistency. What’s more, the single bolt fixings for its drivers give the longer A40 cabinet an especially rigid structure, banishing any hint of boxy coloration, especially from on-wall positions. The A40’s slender profile and glossy lacquer finishes make it a match for super-thin video displays: its beautifully engineered bracket allows for forward and backward adjustment to align the speaker with the front of the screen but also allows the A40 to tilt 22.5 upwards and downwards for optimum setup. Perfect for high quality sound where space is at a premium, and devastating when teamed with the explosive AW-12 subwoofer in a 5.1 channel configuration, the A40 will deliver simply breath-taking audio: discreet but oh so devastating.

Gold Dome C-CAM

  • 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.
HiVe II Port Technology 
  • A new type of port technology which uses a straight rifled design to accelerate air flow and reduce turbulence. HiVe II technology has the ability to move air in and out much quicker than a conventional port, the result is fast powerful bass coupled with superior transient response.
RST
  • 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
