Product Description

Designed using a 'sound first' principle, the Cambridge Audio SX50 speakers are all about the music; pure and simple. They're ideal for home theatre or stereo setups in small-to-medium-sized rooms, or as hi-fi desktop computer speakers. Just add a Minx powered subwoofer and listen to these really sing!


In selecting the drive units for the SX50, Cambridge Audio have put sound quality ahead of all other considerations. For this reason, the drive units may not look especially impressive but they do sound it! A silk dome tweeter gives the ideal combination of crisp detail with a smooth refined sound - the ideal compliment for many budget amplifiers. Matching this is a custom-designed woofer with a treated paper cone. Although this might sound basic, the material helps give the SX50 speakers a fast, responsive sound quality with excellent bass timing.

Rigid MDF Cabinet: Ensuring the drive units sound their very best, the SX50 uses rigid MDF cabinets. Designed to minimise standing waves, the cabinets help further in producing a clean, accurate sound. For a well balanced bass, even at lower volume levels, the SX50 speakers are rear ported. Should you which to place the speakers close to a rear wall or use them in a small room then you can dampen the ports with the provided foam inserts, giving a sound more attuned to the room.

Attention To Detail: Although a budget speaker, you might not think it when looking more closely at the SX50s. The drive units, for example, are not only recessed but also benefit from hidden fixings. This doesn't just improve the style, it also promotes better sound-staging for a more accurate rendition of the music. The cable terminals are also gold-plated for a lower resistance connection. High quality sound through attentive design: the Cambridge Audio SX50 speakers make music matter.

Binding Posts: The Cambridge Audio SX-50 bookshelf loudspeakers are equipped with a set of binding post terminals. The binding post terminals will accept bare-wire (up to 10 AWG), spade-connectors and banana-plugs. The terminals are colour-coded (black/red) to distinguish between positive and negative. This is important as it keeps the speakers "in-phase" which simply makes them sound better.

Placement: Ideally the speakers and listening position should be located equal distances apart. The tweeters should also be placed at ear level. In addition, the speaker should be positioned at least 50mm away from the back or side walls and more if possible. When placed on a shelf or close to a wall, the bass is usually "boomy" and bloated - not really ideal. The included foam inserts will reduce the bass output when inserted into the rear speaker ports. They can also be moved in and out until you get the desired effect.

Mounting Options: The Cambridge Audio SX-50 bookshelf loudspeakers include 8 self-adhesive foam-feet (4 each) to place on the underside of the speakers and so minimise any damage to your shelf, table, bench, or desk. If mounting on stands you will need to be careful or use gel pads or bluetack to hold the speaker more securely. There are optional wall-mounting brackets (sold separately) from various suppliers thatcan be used to wall mount the speakers. Contact us for more details.
