The dialogue speaker with a difference. Using a BMR® driver instead of a traditional tweeter gives the Aero 5 several key advantages – adding up to a radical difference in audio quality compared to its rivals. The result when applied to the vital centre channel is nothing less than stunning.

BALANCED MODE RADIATOR (BMR) DRIVER
The video opposite shows how our Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) technology combines the movement of two speaker types to vastly improve the sound you hear. Pistonic speakers move in a backwards and forwards motion, flat panel speakers use ‘bending wave’ principles, but the BMR drivers we use combine the best of both.
By replacing the traditional tweeter with a BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) driver, the Aero 5 offers a radical difference in audio quality compared to its rivals. Using the BMR shifts the crossover point between tweeter and woofer away from the usual 3kHz, right at the middle of the human ear’s most sensitive hearing range, to a less problematic 250Hz. The result is a more natural, immersive and coherent sound.
WIDE SOUND DISPERSION
The BMR® driver construction also delivers a more room-filling sound. This makes them ideal for modern homes and room layouts where speakers might not end up placed optimally for traditional stereo audio. You can place the Aero 5 wherever you want and still get great stereo and surround effects.
ULTIMATE LOW END POWER
Using BMR® drivers means that Aero series woofers get to really bark. By concentrating the matching Aero 9 subwoofer below 250Hz and ensuring the non-BMR® drivers are also concentrated in the lower frequencies, the result is cinematic, immersive sound with sumptuous and accurate bass.
