Designed for accurate audio playback that is at home in studios both beginner and professional, the pair of BX8 D2 130W 8" Two-Way Active Studio Monitors from M-Audio feature an 8" Kevlar woofer and a 1.25" silk-dome high-frequency driver with bi-amped functionality. An integrated waveguide helps provide a wide sweet spot, which can easily be determined thanks to the monitor's LED power light. The BX8 D2 has both XLR and 1/4" inputs, and supports balanced and unbalanced signals.
Designed for Accuracy
Whether you're recording, mixing, or mastering, your monitors are your primary reference source. Accurate monitors let you hear exactly what's happening in your mixes and give you the assurance that your music will translate well to other listening environments. The M-Audio BX8 D2 monitors are designed to deliver transparency and sonic definition, for marathon mixing sessions with minimal listening fatigue
The high-frequency domes are made from natural silk to counter the audible ringing. The high-frequency driver is fully isolated from the rest of the enclosure to ensure minimum distortion, providing smooth frequency response up to 22 kHz. It also features a built-in waveguide, which offers an expansive sound stage and imaging
Kevlar Low-Frequency Drivers
The BX8 D2 monitor's 8" low-frequency driver from woven Kevlar. M-Audio's engineers also created a curved conical design that improves room dispersion. High-damping reliable rubber surrounds provide percussive musical bass, and ensures that the cone reaches its optimal excursion for accurate reproduction. the high-temperature voice coils reduce power compression, allowing your monitors to deliver full performance
Rear-Ported Cabinet Design
The BX8 D2 cabinet is integrally designed with its other components for optimal performance-right down to rounded corners for reduced edge diffraction and superior imaging. The custom rear port is designed to minimize air turbulence and resulting distortion while adding additional low frequency extension
The Class A/B bi-amplified design dedicates separate power amps to the high and low frequencies. Combined with a tuned crossover, the design ensures that each driver only delivers the frequencies that it can reproduce most efficiently, resulting in tonal accuracy and sound across the frequency spectrum
Large Sweet Spot
When monitoring, it's important to sit in the middle position or "sweet spot" between the two speakers-where the stereo image is optimized. BX8 D2 features a pinhole power LED that makes finding the sweet spot easy. You'll know you're in the right listening position when the BX8 D2 LEDs appear to be brightest
