The BX5 D3 from M-Audio is a 2-way, 100W powered studio monitor designed to offer a wide frequency response and easy configuration for mixers, DJs, producers, and recordists in small control rooms, personal studios, and mobile rigs. The monitor produces a frequency response of 52 Hz to 35 kHz, thanks to two Class A/B amplifiers feeding a 5” Kevlar woofer and 1” silk dome tweeter.
A rear-mounted bass port delivers extended bass response, while the tweeter’s custom waveguide yields a wide sweet spot and minimized high-frequency scatter. Volume and low-frequency controls are provided so you can tune the monitor to cooperate with the sound of the room. Place the monitor on the supplied acoustic foam pad to decouple it from your table or stands, which aids in reducing unwanted bass vibrations.
The BX5 D3 can interface with a variety of equipment, via balanced XLR and balanced/unbalanced 1/4” TRS input jacks. Setup is simple, due to the front-mounted LED, which appears brighter when you are at the ideal angle.
