The Ministry of Sound Audio L Plus is a large wireless speaker. It is a new addition to the line of Plus models from the same brand, them being the Audio S Plus and the Audio M Plus (which are the small and medium units). Since this is the large variant, it is aimed for individuals who don’t want to move their speakers around all the time. Therefore, the L Plus is certainly not built for portability.
The Ministry of Sound Audio L Plus Promotes a Large Presence
Aside from having a bigger architecture than the S and M Plus models, the Ministry of Sound Audio L Plus is also their more expensive cousin. It delivers a beefier sound, but in terms of overall audio performance, it doesn’t offer a smashing-hit.
While its design may be large, Audio L Plus wireless speaker is still a lounge-friendly device. It weighs 2.6-kilograms and it would happily fit into just about any bookshelf. This is particularly true since the speaker has no rear bass port that might ruin the sound should you place the device close to a wall.
The L Plus is also the only model in the series that is not portable. As well as being relatively heavy and sizeable, it is mains powered, which means it has no battery and needs to be plugged into a wall socket for it to work.
In terms of looks, it is still pretty much similar to the Ministry of Sound M Plus, but with three times the size. Its body is made up of a curvy hard plastic material except for the metal grille. Speaking of the metal grille, it covers much of its front facade.
When it comes to its sound, it is also delivers a larger audio performance than its two smaller predecessors. When you take away its front grille, you are essentially left with two small bookshelf speakers. These are somewhat joined together with a single bass reflex port found at the front. There are main mid-bass drivers that are 4.5-inches across. Also, each of the tweeters on the device measure an inch.
While the L Plus can certainly pack a powerful punch in terms of its audio signatures, there are some downsides to it. Even though it can play a 30Hz sound wave in isolation, when it comes to the idea of it playing a busy mix, the low-bass cut-off point is as poor as the two other models in the series. Meaning, there is a certain point where it just stops outputting low frequency bass. Therefore, the depth of the bass being delivered is, at times, slightly disappointing for a wireless speaker of its size.
Even though it is able to play a decent performance, the Ministry of Sound Audio L Plus might disappoint fans of what bass should “feel” like. The wireless speaker does offer great features but in the aspect of its audio features, well, let’s just say that the device is still lacking in this criteria. Because of its average audio performance, it falls short of being a device that truly convinces people to purchase it.
