Monkey Banana Turbo 8 red

The Monkey Banana Turbo 8 Red is a professional studio monitor with an 8" magnetically shielded polypropylene/ceramic membrane woofer and a 1" silk dome tweeter.  The Turbo Series is not only stylish in appearance, but also employs serious engineering to achieve the best acoustic performance. The Bass-reflex acoustic design combines maximum efficiency and optimal bass extension. The MDF material ensures proper damping of vibrations from the drivers. All this is done behind a sophisticated industrial design utilising modern fashion elements. 

In order to achieve this perfect combination of sound quality and appearance, the Turbo series enclosures were designed as a non-regular hexagon. After careful calculation and experiment, we found that the non-regular hexagonal structure is most effective in minimising standing waves inside the enclosure. We chose high quality MDF for the enclosure to not only damp out unwanted resonances, but to ensure a solid and inert structure to mount our drivers to. All internal surfaces are lined with blended wool to further damp the structure of the cabinet.

Using high quality pure silk from Europe for the tweeters, the patented dome shape perfectly articulates the high frequencies out past 20 kHz. It is designed to have a low resonance (for a low crossover point) but also high power handling.

Using patented technology from the Aviation industry, the PP carbon fiber / ceramic composite cone for the woofer provides a perfect balance between strength and weight. This lightweight yet strong cone ensures an extremely fast transient response from bass notes all the way through to the midrange.

The custom made amplifier design uses only professional grade multi layer PC boards (compared with the single sided PC boards used in other speakers). This ensures that the circuitry and components have better reliability and better performance, which in the end means higher fidelity sound.
