The Cenya Signature speakers are easily one of the best sounding monitor speakers in the market. Even the built and finish is amongst the best found in any monitor speakers. Each speaker is painstakingly made with layers of plywood boards “compressed” together to form the cabinet and then laser cut for that beautiful top grade furniture finish. The two drivers used in each speaker are a 3/4″ dome tweeter and a 6″ magnesium coned midwoofer. Speakers are rear ported so it needs to be placed at least 18″ from the back wall with the port canal interestingly, made of aluminum instead of the usual plastic. Frequency response is 40 Hz to 25 kHz with a nominal impedance of 4 ohm and a sensitivity of 86 dB. Manufacturer recommends a minimum of 50W to drive them but if you have a 100W or even 150W amp, that’s even better. We drove them with 150W and they were stunning. Even though the speakers only measure 6.5″ wide, 11″ tall and about 13″ deep, they projected a soundstage that would equal something from a floorstander. There was good depth, beautiful imaging, rich, smooth highs and mids and a punchy bass. Stands (ideally 28″ tall) and proper positioning in your room are very critical to getting the best out of these speakers.
Cosmetically, the speakers look really good. A few minor scuff marks here and there and a couple of minor “dents” from the grille pegs (they are attached magnetically) that you would need to look closely to see them. The side panels of the speakers are finished in walnut. We have the original box from them so they will ship very safely to you.
