Canton Movie 125 MX Review - Features Review


The front, centre and surround speakers all use a two-way closed design. The fronts and surround feature a single 80mm aluminium-finished woofer with a 15mm tweeter above it. The centre speaker features two 80mm woofers and a tweeter, designed to give dialogue extra prominence.

The subwoofer is endowed with a 200mm woofer and a 140W amplifier, plus it uses Canton’s SC technology, which ‘redefines the relationship between speaker volume and bass reproduction’, using filter switches and extends the speakers’ transmission range by an octave and more downwards.

Installation-wise, it’s fine to strategically place the satellites around the room on shelves or furniture, but if you’d prefer something a little more rigid then Canton sells optional floorstands (LS 90.1 and LS 95.1). You can mount them on the wall if you prefer, and for that purpose there’s a complete ‘Movie Mount’ kit in the box, including a sturdy metal bracket for the centre speaker, plastic brackets for the satelites and all the fixings you need.

Getting the subwoofer to integrate with the satellites and adjusting the low-frequency response for the needs of your room couldn’t be simpler thanks to the controls on the back. There’s a crossover dial, ranging from 65Hz up to 150Hz, and a volume dial that unusually is labelled in dB and goes from -80 up to 9. Alongside these controls are L/R speaker-level inputs (binding posts) and L/R low-level cinch inputs. Power can be controlled automatically, plus there’s a power switch to shut it down completely.
