"Stereo speaker Product of the Year, Awards 2010. The BX2s are quite an achievement and some of the most engaging speakers you can buy at this money." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine.

The Monitor Audio Bronze BX2 is one of the finest speakers in its class - and has the reviews to prove it!

The new C-CAM (Ceramic Coated Aluminium Magnesium) gold dome tweeter has an extended frequency response that now stretches to beyond 30 kHz. Whilst this may be well above our audible spectrum it does have a positive effect on the sound; lower notes that we can hear aren't compressed downwards or harmonically compromised. In short, the treble response is smooth, sweet and detailed. Matching this refined tweeter unit is a similarly impressive woofer. The highly developed C-CAM bass and mid-range integrates smoothly with the treble to give life-like vocals and a powerful, rhythmic bass response. For a fairly compact speaker you'll also find surprising bass weight with the BX2.

Another technically impressive feature is the woofer fixing. Rather than being bolted to the front baffle, through-bolt construction ensures isolation from the main cabinet and therefore a less coloured sound. The cabinet itself is highly rigid and features HiVe II port technology. This exhausts the air from the cabinet as quickly as possible to give a faster and more dynamic bass response.

Finished in classic black, the Bronze BX2 blends perfectly with most other electronics and speakers you may have. The Bronze range is also finished to the standards of much more expensive speakers. For example, the grille is magnetically attached and there are no exposed driver bolts once the grille is removed.

Make no mistake, the Monitor Audio BX2 stands at the top of its class.

Speaker Enclosure Type
Type of speaker enclosure. Infinite baffle cabinets are sealed and so are often less fussy about placement. Usually they do require a little more power to drive, though. Bass reflex speakers are usually more efficient than infinite baffle designs but may require more care in terms of placement. Rear port designs, in particular, usually need at least 15-30cm (6 - 12 inches) between them and the wall behind, for a balanced bass response.

Rated 4.9 out of 5áby 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great speaker but not to my personal taste Richer sounds ( brilliant as always ) had an open box set of BX2's so I bought them and tried them for a few days. They have amazing clarity and good bass extension but, for some reason, I did not take to them. I felt they lacked 'warmth' in the mid range Its very much a matter of personal preference and, even for budget speakers, its well worth auditioning them if you can. In the end I got a set of Wharfedale 220's. Even to my ears I think that they are not as clear as the BX2's but, on the other hand, they are. for me, far more easy to listen to. Its probably something to do with my history of what I expect speakers to sound like rather than any objective criterion. I think the BX2's should be on most peoples list of exceptional budget speakers to listen to - which is why I haven't marked them down in spite of deciding against them in the end. I have a slight reservation that I should have persevered longer with them to see if I could re-educate my senses. 27 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby great for the price I bought these on advice from the salesman in Edinburgh and his advice was good. These speakers have a great sound for a small speaker with a small pricetag. Had them for 4 months now and they are all I need for a small livingroom in a flat - I wasn't looking for masssive power, I just wanted a great sound and I got that. Bass is lovely. Plus they look great ! 04 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Sound quality and value Fab speakers , nice sound , need to be positioned not to close to a wall or the bass is overpowering . Once placed right then you get a very good sound stage . 01 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent Sound! I was origionally looking to upgrade my existing Wharfedales to a newer model, but on listening to them, they lacked something? I listened to a few others until the guy at Richer Sounds then brought the Monitor Audio BX2 Blk into the room for me to listen to and wow what a difference. The sound quality Is unbelievable! Good deep solid bass and nice crisp treble. I couldn't wait to get them home and set them up with my Teac amp & Marantz CD player and I was not disappointed. They improve in sound each time I play them. These speakers are quality and sound and look more expensive than they are! 100% pleased with them. 08 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Simply superb sound I bought the Monitor Audio BX2s to pair with a Cambridge Audio Azur 350A amplifier and to replace my ancient (but still sounding good) Mission 761s from the Eighties! I was originally looking at Cambridge Audio, Q Acoustics and Wharfedale speakers all around the ú150-ú200 mark but Guido in The Maidstone branch (who was superbly knowledgeable and helpful) noted my music and sound preferences and suggested the Monitor Audios; what a brilliant recommendation! The speakers will probably get even better once run-in but I think they already sound superbly detailed with a tight, punchy and extended bass and seem to suit my Cambridge amp well. Thanks once again to Guido at Maidtone for such excellent service. 28 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent for the money ! Just picked up these for my budget 2nd system , didnt expect too much from these little bookshelf speakers , but all i can say is WOW ! I own the bigger floorstanding BX5's so i thought i would try these and im glad i did , one thing i was worried about was placement and lack of bass response , again these excelled in my expectations , good clean crisp treble , and the detail from my modest low end setup is just amazing , cant comment on the volume levels as im running them in still , but they sound good at modest volume levels . So to sum up a happy customer so far , would definitely recommend . 22 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby A worthwhile upgrade Bought these to replace some Wharfedale Diamond 9.1's I'd been using in my kitchen set up which to my ear just weren't cutting the mustard. Really glad I did as the sound quality jump has been significant. It's not really a fair comparison but the level of detail these put out is on another level the the highly regarded Wharfedales. In other rooms I have significantly more expensive speakers than these but in terms of finish and build quality these compare very favorably. Bottom line is they look and sound better than their price tag suggests. 28 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby Good sound. Solid construction. Brought these to pair with a Marantz McR610. Super solid construction, look good, easy to attach speaker cable (Cambridge Symphony 400). Sounds good especially for the price. 31 July 2014
