M-Audio BX5 overview

  • 1Description

The B&H BX5 Carbon Studio Monitoring & Controller Kit includes a pair of black M-Audio BX5 Carbon active 2-way studio monitors, a passive monitor controller, two foam speaker platforms, and two balanced XLR 3-pin cables. Each monitor features 70W of Class-AB amplification driving a 5" woven Kevlar woofer and 1" silk dome tweeter to produce a frequency response of 56 Hz to 22 kHz. With 3.5mm, XLR, and 1/4" connectivity, reduced bass build-up, and controls for stereo/mono switching, mute, and volume, this kit delivers convenient operations and enhanced monitoring accuracy for musicians, producers, beatmakers, and audio engineers in home and project studios.

  • 2 x M-Audio BX5 Carbon 5" 2-Way 70W Active Studio Monitor (Black)

    The black M-Audio BX5 Carbon is a 5" 2-way 70W active studio monitor that can be used for home studio recording and mixing. The monitor utilizes a 40W powered 5" Kevlar woven woofer and a 30W powered 1" silk dome tweeter to deliver a frequency response of 56 Hz to 22 kHz with a signal-to-noise ratio of 100 dB.

    The monitor's Class-AB amplifier helps provide a flat frequency response with low noise to enable you to mix a wide variety of modern music styles. The tweeter output is sent through a waveguide to improve stereo imaging and pinhole mounted LED placement cues can help you place the monitor in relation to the optimal listening position.

    A 3-way switch on the back of the unit allows the response of the monitor to be adjusted to different acoustic environments such as bedroom home studios or professionally treated facilities. Both XLR 3-pin and 1/4" TRS inputs are available for connection to your audio interface. The BX5 Carbon features protection against RF interference, output current limiting, a subsonic filter, and more.

  • 2 x Kopul Studio Elite 4000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable - 6' (1.8 m), Black

    The Kopul Studio Elite 4000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (6') is a studio-quality cable for connecting mics to mixers, preamps, audio interfaces and recorders; or to be used in any other application where XLR connectivity is required. The cable is engineered to be both quiet and durable, and is well-suited for critical recording and broadcast situations.

    Studio Elite 4000 Series cables are made from 24 AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. A 98% braided outer shield makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrix XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

    98% braided shield offers protection from EMI and RFI noise.
    Twin-conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core.
    24 AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity.
    Cotton yarn reduces electrostatic and microphonic noise.
    All solder points shrink-wrapped for protection.
    Neutrik XX silver connectors offer high conductivity.
    Cast zinc shell and chuck style strain relief.
