British manufacturer Ophidian has launched the 2nd generation of their M-series compact loudspeakers. All three models, Minimo, Mojo and Mambo are back and have been completely revised from the ground up.

The original M-series garnered positive reviews from Hifi Pig and the new M-series 2 speakers the 27mm fabric dome tweeter from SEAS, Norway remains while all three models now utilise a larger 4.5″ (115mm) mid-bass driver up from the 3.5″ (90mm) model in the previous generation.

The New Ophidian M Series 2

AEROFLEX

The new mid-bass driver features a coated paper cone with 65% greater surface area than the older model and features a 1″ (25mm) 4-layer voice coil kept cool by an aluminium former. A large magnet and powerful motor system coupled to the unique AEROFLEX bass loading topology is also a feature.

Cabinets

Newly redesigned cabinets built in Sheffield, England now feature removal magnetic grilles for a cleaner front look. The Minimo 2 retains the ability to wall mount for surround setups.

The Mambo 2 floorstander features a hidden third bass driver that augments the output from the two front mounted drivers for output potential more akin to that of a much larger speaker.
