A studio monitor is no ordinary loudspeaker. Unlike a conventional speaker, a true monitor must be unerringly accurate, with a flat frequency response and vanishingly low distortion. It has to tell you, the music producerâ€” dependably and unquestionablyâ€”exactly what is or is not in your recording. In a studio-grade monitor speaker, there is no place for the usual list of speaker colorations and limitations prevalent in conventional loudspeakers. Response peaks\dips, uneven polar response, high THD, nasal midrange, bloated mid-bass, and crossover-induced phase incoherence do nothing but undermine the confidence demanded for superior mix performance.
With M-Audioâ€™s BX5-D3, every detail has been meticulously engineered with one goal in mind - to facilitate the freedom to mix with confidence. BX5-D3 monitors have a rear- mounted bass port, meticulously engineered to the exact length and diameter. The result? Deep, defined bass response with maximum bass extension and resolution. When combined with a smoothly-flared port, BX5-D3 monitors markedly reduce the audibly-intrusive air turbulence that results when bass is played back at high sound pressure levels (SPLs). BX5-D3â€™s tweeter is mounted in a custom waveguide for reliably accurate dispersion that eliminates unwanted high-frequency â€œscatter,â€ whilst ensuring a soundstage that remains consistently wide and stable. For seamless setup and easy-location of the optimum listening position, the BX5-D3â€™s front-mounted positioning LED shines brightly when youâ€™re located in the perfect listening spot, for uncompromisingly accurate and reliable critical evaluations. Finally, BX5-D3â€™s iconic design on the front panelâ€”M-Audioâ€™s famous â€œkeyholeâ€ shapeâ€”is more than just an attractive look: This special â€œfastenerlessâ€ design ensures so there are no driver attachment screw heads to interfere with the sound coming from our drivers.
