Shure Announces Microflex MXN5-C Networked PoE Loudspeaker
CHICAGO, June 11, 2020—The new Microflex™ MXN5-C Networked Loudspeaker from Shure provides high-quality speech reproduction for AV conferencing applications. PoE-enabled with an onboard amplifier housed in a low-profile design, this networkable loudspeaker is optimized for easy installation in drop-ceiling configurations. Because it is designed by Shure, it integrates seamlessly with the Company’s conferencing audio ecosystem of networked hardware and software for a complete audio solution.
The MXN5-C provides a necessary solution to the integrated systems market. The product features pre-tuned frequency response optimized for voice intelligibility in AV conferencing applications.
Its low-profile, shallow-can design is compatible with most drop-ceiling installations and includes two Dante inputs and one Dante output. The clean design elements allow for a subtle blend into drop-ceiling environments with a removable and paintable grille.

- Single manufacturer of the entire audio chain simplifies service and support
- Shure Audio Encryption for secure meeting content
- Dante Domain Manager compatible for roles-based security of Dante-enabled devices
