"Excellent all rounder with a performance way beyond its price." 'Hi-Fi Choice - Recommended'. 5-star review.
Full-range standmount speaker
The Monitor Audio Silver 2 may 'only' be a relatively compact speaker but this doesn't stop it from offering a powerful performance that can shame some much larger speakers. Making use a powerful 8" bass cone, the Silver 2's have a bass response that drops right down to 40Hz - easily matching or beating many floorstanding speakers. This means that, even in larger rooms, the Silver 2 is unfazed by the most dynamic music.
The best drivers in the business
Monitor Audio are renowned for their ability to make class-leading drivers and this is certainly the case with the Silver 2. The 8" bass cone features distinctive RST (Rigid Surface Technology). Inspired by the Japanese art of Origami, the lightweight cone is made more rigid by the precise pattern of surface dimples. It makes the bass and mid-range natural-sounding and effortlessly flowing. At the top end, Monitor Audio's gold dome tweeter with dome venting gives an expressive treble full of detail.
Attention to detail for the finest sound quality
As well as the high quality drive units, it's the attention to detail that really sets the Silver 2 apart. Inside the cabinet, Pureflow silver-plated OFC internal cable is used for the purest sound. Likewise, the crossovers feature premium grade polypropylene film capacitors for an open and transparent sound. There's also extensive internal bracing for ultra-low levels of cabinet distortion. Of course, none of this expensive design can be seen but it has a huge effect on the sound quality.
Superb finish, designed to match your decor
Available in a wide range of premium real wood veneers and high gloss finishes, the Silver 2 looks every bit as good as it sounds. A magnetically attached grille gives a clean appearance when removed - ideal for showing off those hi-tech drive units.
Fill your room with music without filling it with speakers, with the powerful yet discreet Monitor Audio Silver 2.
For the best fit, we recommend the Custom Design FS104 Signature stands for these speakers.

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.
