Fluid Audio F5 overview

  • 1Description

The black F5 from Fluid Audio is a pair of studio reference monitors well suited for project and professional studio applications. The 2-way design features a 5" low frequency woofer and a 1" tweeter that combine to deliver a full range frequency response of 49 Hz to 22 kHz. The phase coherent signal has an accurate off-axis response with superb imaging and sonic clarity. The bi-amplified design delivers 70W of Class A/B power to the drivers, while the optimized front-loaded slot port directs the low frequency energy towards the listener.

The F5 is magnetically shielded and offers balanced XLR, 1/4" / 6.35mm, and unbalanced RCA inputs to accommodate a variety of equipment including audio interfaces, monitor controllers, instruments, and DJ gear. The front panel offers a convenient fader volume to easily control the sound level without having to reach around to the rear of the speaker. The amplifier also includes a stand-by mode to help conserve electricity when not in use. The F5 ships with two AC power cords and two isolation pads.

  • Bi-amplified design with 70 watts of Class A/B power for coherent and accurate sound reproduction
  • 5” low-frequency drivers with composite paper cones for powerful and dynamic lows
  • 1" treaded silk dome high frequency drivers center mounted in woofer with integrated waveguide ensure a flat response and wide dispersion
  • Optimized front-loaded slot port for direct radiating low frequency energy
  • Magnetic shielding that eliminates interference with other electronic equipment
  • XLR balanced, 1/4” balanced and RCA unbalanced inputs for connecting mixers, interfaces, instruments, DJ gear, and more
  • Fader Volume control on front baffle for easy access
  • Amplifier Standby mode that powers down the amp when no input signal detected (shown by front LED changing from blue to red)
  • Includes two isolation pads

    Fluid Audio F5 reviews

    F5 - 70W 5" Two-Way Active Studio Reference Monitors (Pair, Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair for a great price These were my first monitor speakers and I must say that I was very impress by the sound quality. I really like the fact that they automatically put themselves in standby mode after 15 minutes since I don't have to turn them off each time I have to leave my computer. Pairing them to my audio interface (Steinberg UR22) was really easy. At first, I got some strange interference noise but after switching the usb port of my audio interface, it went away. I compared them to the KRK Rokit5 from my friend and the Fluid audio's were a bit more crisp..and also cheaper.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful and Clever These monitors are fantastic, especially considering the price. They're more powerful than nearly any other monitor in their class, and have a great range with the exception of the very lowest frequencies. They're exceptionally clear in the mids and highs, and handle vocals with aplomb. I use them for both home audio and video editing, and they do very well at both. Some Pros - They look slick. Black speakers are a dime a dozen, and the white really sticks out and adds a bit of class to your desktop/studio setup. - The standby mode works flawlessly. They come on when I turn on my system, and they turn off when I power down. They pull a lot of power, so it's good not to waste any. - Really, really clear in the mids and highs. - Sliders on the front allow you to control volume level directly on each speaker. Some Cons - They can't handle the lowest frequencies. They're just not there. Add a sub if you're looking for that. - No dedicated sub-woofer passthrough. Would be a nice feature to have. - Two separate power cords requires two outlets. - Sliders on the front are really sensitive. With the sliders at the mid point, the lowest volume level on my computer is still really, really loud. - No covers. Not a huge deal most of the time, but I'm a little worried some idiot is going to stick their finger in the tweeter and damage it. Overall, they're an incredible value for the price. If you're looking to step up to some real studio monitors and you're on a budget, these are the way to go.
