The next generation of M-Audio’s best selling monitors, the M-Audio BX5 D2 Active Studio Monitor Speakers, offer professionals more than ever before. Borrowing technology from their high-end products, M-Audio has extended the frequency response of the BX5, while the inclusion of Custom Class A/B analog amplifiers offer improved dynamics and tonal accuracy. Sound is defined and enriched by the M-Audio BX5 D2 Speakers’ woven Kevlar low-frequency drivers and waveguide-loaded silk dome tweeters. All this equates to an accurate, transparent set of monitors with minimal listening fatigue.
Made from natural silk, the high-frequency domes in the M-Audio BX5 D2 Studio Monitor Speakers ensure you don’t get the audible ‘ringing’ of their poorly crafted metallic counterparts. The driver is kept separate to reduce distortion and keep the response up to a smooth 22 kHz. Additionally, the tweeter has a built-in waveguide, giving exceptional imaging.
Kevlar Low-Frequency Drivers
The M-Audio BX5 D2 Monitors’ 5” low-frequency drivers utilise a curved conical design, for improved room dispersion, and are constructed from woven Kevlar, for its high mechanical, thermal resilience, and sheer robustness. The rubber surrounds offer high damping to provide bass and encourage the cones to reach optimal excursion. High-temperature voice coils are in place to reduce power compression and keep the monitor’s performance levels consistently high.
The manufacture of the cabinets have also been thought through to add more to the performance of the M-Audio BX5 D2 Monitors, with an integral design that even takes the corners into consideration; rounding them to reduced edge diffraction and offer superior imaging. The rear port has also been customised to minimize air turbulence and resulting distortion while adding additional low frequency extension.
An addition included in the design of the M-Audio BX5 D2 Monitors is the pinhole LED at the front of each speaker. This small, but clever, extra ensures you are in the ‘sweet spot’ between the two speakers by setting the monitors into positions where the LEDs are at their brightest.
With a Class A/B bi-amplified design, high and low frequencies are provided with separate power amps. Working with a finely tuned crossover, each driver works to its best, to provide you with accurate tone and sound across all frequencies.
