  • Custom bi-amped, class A/B amplifiers / Provide high headroom and low distortion
  • Front-firing port / Allows placement flexibility (i.e. near walls) without interference from a rear-firing port
  • Dedicated low and high frequency level adjustment controls / Allows you to optimize the monitor's response to better match the room acoustics and the user's personal preferences
  • Self-powered. Amps matched to drivers; no external amp hassles / Rigid and lightweight driver for optimal sound quality
  • Smooth high frequency response with excellent HF extension to 34.5 kHz
  • Bass extension to 35 Hz / Excellent low frequency response for such a compact monitor
  • Universal connectivity with XLR, 1/4" TRS, and RCA inputs / Interfaces with just about any mixer and/or audio interface
  • Volume control / Allows you to fine-tune your overall monitoring level
  • System-optimized auto-limiter / Prevents unexpected peaks from damaging the speakers and provides consistency and clarity at high volumes
