Richer Sounds exclusive model.

Enjoy genuine hi-fi sound quality but demand discreet style? Then take a look at the ground-breaking Cambridge Audio Minx system!


If you're in any doubt about the quality of this system then take a look at what the reviewers have been saying. "Well, Bose is about to get a sound thrashing from the British boys at Cambridge Audio, whose brand-new Minx is even smaller than Acoustimass - especially the subwoofer - and simply better. Much, much better." Jonathan Margolis, Financial Times. And; "To say we were impressed is a gross understatement." T3

Small but mighty

The Cambridge Audio Minx X301 is in the middle of the X-range and strikes an ideal balance. At just 28cm square, it's smaller than most of its rivals, yet thanks to larger bass drivers, the sound's anything but. Like the other Minx subs, the X301 uses unique Cambridge technology to produce a bass response that is both powerful and tuneful.

Sophisticated Digital Signal Processor
At the heart of the X301 beats Cambridge Audio's sophisticated DSP (Digital Signal Processor). When combined with the digital amplifier, this provides exceptional bass with more than enough power to rattle the china! The bass cones are constructed of one-piece, aerospace-grade aluminium and configured with both powered and passive cones; something not usually seen at this price. Compared to conventional bass ports there's a greatly enhanced bass response with far more detail and control.

Beautiful finish
Although compact, the X301 packs a hefty 300W from its active amplifier and offers gain, phase and crossover control for full control and integration with a complete Minx system. Finished in special, scratch-resistant, premium automotive gloss black paint, the X301 is the perfect match for most hi-fi, home cinema and TV systems.

Ideal for larger rooms or for higher volume requirements, the X301 is a deeply impressive subwoofer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cambridge Audio - Cambridge Audio Minx X301 The Subwoofer produces smooth crystal clear base, excellent sound quality, furthermore it is compact in size and looks great, with a 300 Watt RMS output, it would be more than sufficient to satisfy anyone's need for a home entertainment system. I would recommend the Minx X301 subwoofer to anyone, it produces nice and tight base that sounds great, before I go would like to thank Richer Sound’s for their help and support to narrow down my search or selection to this particular modal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mini Thunder box ! This subwoofer is a great looking speaker, but, more importantly, it is a great sounding sub. I am at last getting extensive bass in my hi-fi system that fills the room, giving a huge bass response as required. I am so impressed with it, I think I might get another one for my home cinema arrangement, which already has a powered sub, but it doesnt perform anywhere near as well as this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than expected I brought this after experiencing my step dads big sub woofer. I already had the minx surround speakers so wanted to keep to the same so brought the 301 sub. Wasn’t expecting much as it’s half the size of my step dads but was shocked how good it is. My flat rumbles, the sound is awesome and I bet my neighbours love it too! Highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minx X301 subwoofer Upgraded this from an X201 I had for 7 years. Now have a larger room so we’ll worth the investment. Massive bass pound for pound

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement for Tannoy Mixed feelings but after a week really enjoying the quality. Set up with Marantz Audessy after a couple of goes and is sweet as nut. Quality is better than the Tannoy Subwoofer it replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service! Bought a Subwoofer about a week ago and have been very happy with it! Service in store when testing the product allowed me to find the product which was perfect for me with amazing service from the employees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement Subwoofer I recently bought a new Cambridge Audio Minx Subwoofer after recommendations, and have it to be excellent. Looking at getting other Cambridge audio equipment to match now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good job for movies Bought this for my home cinema and it gives a good response. The gloss black is neatly complimented by the matt cloth grill for contrast. Nice dial options on the back and like the little old style flick switch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly powerful little sub I purchased the minx x301 to compliment my home cinema with a bit more bass. Hooked up to a Sony strdn1080; setting up was simple enough, however I did find that even with the sub volume set to '11 o clock' position, I would get rattle during some movie moments so am still tweaking levels to my liking. Previously I had a Paradigm subwoofer and think that it had a bit more low end grunt than this Cambridge audio, however, it's built nicely, looks good, very discreet in size and performs well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minx S325 - Great System I bought this sub as par of the S325 5.1 package. it is superb for the size (and probably puts much bigger subs to shame). During the club scene in The Social network it was like being there. It provides deep bass you can feel but is well controlled.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from X301 Powerful for a small sub, fits in the room nicely too. Picks up a wide range and produces crisp bass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product I bought this today and it is amazing. My stereo set up is just right now with this subwoofer. It is a bit pricey for its size, but worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant little big sound. I am really pleased with my Minx X301. It really is a marvel producing deep, smooth, rich bass sound complimenting my Cambridge audio 851A amp and Mordaunt-Short Avant 916i speakers. The available gain, phase and crossover controls allow perfect sound integration with my setup. I’m delighted and would seriously recommend this product to anyone looking for a superior sub woofer in this price range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great sounds incredible I was looking for a quality sub to inance the sound of my hifi, and so went back to richer sounds as they sold me my speakers and stereo unit, and must say they helped me make the right choice once again, this sub compliments my system perfectly is sound is adjustable to all the different types of music I listen to and it is impressive, very powerful to, also looks very good, I would definitely recommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing TV sub! Bought for my 50 inch TV, using existing Bose 15 II Soundbase and new Clarion IA-10 car graphic equaliser (Kkamoon from Amazon) and 12 volt adaptor. Using Minx 22s may have been even better, but would have needed amp. Really ample punch for medium/large room - can highly recommend. 10/10 Cambridge!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A compact size with excellent Sub Woofer audio We purchased this Cambridge Audio SubWoofer to provide a better base line for our TV surround and it certainly does achieve that. Stylish and compact but with plenty of power to have impact with clarity.
Date published: 2017-08-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a 2.5m x 4m room I have used this sub now for around 20-30 hours and it has really settled in. It is great for music and excellent for films, which is what I got it for. After finding the right spot in the room and breaking it in reasonably gently it now sounds awesome. I have watched a few films and been blown away with the cinema feel of the bass and furniture shaking rumble - without any rattle, blur or resonance from the sub. Definitely recommend it and I know it would work great in larger rooms than mine too - I have it set on about 30 to 40% power with no extra bass boost from my marantz amp.
