M-Audio BX-5 Studio Monitors

General Information

The rear panel of the cabinet reveals a bass port and input connectors on both balanced jacks and XLRs, governed by a single volume control. Power connection is through the usual IEC socket and the power switch is also mounted on the rear panel. A three-way Acoustic Space slide switch corrects the bass end for proximity to boundaries by offering 2dB or 4dB of shelving low cut. The bass response may also be adjusted directly by selecting 56Hz, 80Hz or 100Hz roll-off values via another slide switch. A further switch allows the high end to be set flat, boosted by 2dB or cut by 2dB, and there's also a Presence in/out switch to add mid-range boost. A fixed, steep sixth-order filter (36dB/octave) is used to suppress frequencies below the handling range of the speakers, so as to prevent excessive driver excursions. A matched M Audio active subwoofer is also available
