Monoprice’s Monolith Encore 5 Series Loudspeakers Promise A lot of Performance For Less Money

Monoprice adds to its Monolith Encore speaker line with the Encore 5-Series which includes the T5 Tower, B5 Bookshelf, and C5 Center Channel Speaker.

Monoprice Monolith Encore Series 5 Speaker System

Following up on their previous release of the very affordable Monolith Encore 6-series home theater speaker line, Monoprice has decided to expand the Encore line by adding an Encore 5 Series that is priced lower than the current models without sacrificing quality.

The 5 series includes the T5 Tower, B5 Bookshelf, and C5 Center Channel speakers. 

The speakers are sold individually which allows for flexible setup configurations. 

  • Just as with the Encore 6 series, you can use the T5 tower speakers as your front speakers in combination with the B5 bookshelf as surrounds and the C5 center channel. 
  • You can use the T5 towers for both front and surround speakers combined with the C5 center channel. 
  • You can use the B5 bookshelves as both your front and surround speakers combined with a C5 center channel. 
  • You can assemble a 2-channel stereo setup with just a pair of T5s or B5s.  

What All Three Speakers Have in Common

Cabinet Design: Rectangular MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) cabinets with internal bracing.

Impedance: 4 ohms

Tweeter Waveguide:  Each speaker has a 20mm silk dome tweeter that sits inside a large waveguide for better dispersion, a wider sweet spot for stereo listening, and more precise imaging. 

Finish: Black PVC
