MENTOR 1 is the high performance mini monitor of the MENTOR Series. It features three completely new drivers, developed by the DALI R&D team: a 5 inch mid/woofer with aluminum chassis with coated wood fiber cone, a hybrid tweeter module with a 1" soft dome tweeter and a ribbon tweeter. Both tweeter drivers feature very powerful neodymium magnets.

The crossover is build with high quality components, hardwired and mounted directly on the binding posts for shortest possible signal path and best sonic performance.

The bass reflex cabinet is made with real wood veneer, beautifully curved on the front and rear side. The bass reflex port is integrated in the binding post shell allowing a lower tuning frequency than normal - one of the ingredients of developing a speaker that has much musicality.

A separate wall mount bracket is available for easy wall mount. MENTOR 1 is also suitable for positioning on a stand or a shelf.

The modest dimensions of the MENTOR 1s make them ideal for smaller rooms or combined with a subwoofer in larger rooms. The MENTOR 1s are also very suited for surround sound systems.
