Introducing M-Audio's BX5-D3 Studio Monitor Speakers – the superior quality successor to the renowned D2 range. These monitors feature an incredible build-quality including robust and durable Kevlar woofers built to military-grade specification. The result is a monitor that aims to reduce against undesirable “cone breakup” and other unwanted low-end resonance. The cabinet is manufactured to create a lightweight speaker that still fights against unwanted cabinet resonance.

The BX5-D3 features a silk dome treated tweeter providing you with clarity on high-end frequencies. This combined with the BX drivers combine to give an accurate frequency coverage allowing you to mix your music with dynamic accuracy. The tweeter is attached to a custom made waveguide that helps to direct frequencies more accurately and to prevent against the unwanted scattering of frequencies. In addition to this, the BX5's also combats against audible air turbulence that comes from when the bass is played back at a high-SPL.

M-Audio's BX5 D3 is powered by two Class A/B internal amps that drive the tweeter and woofer separately. A precision-tuned crossover means that each driver only deals with frequencies that it produces with the most efficiency. This helps to create a more coherent image of the overall frequency spectrum. In addition to this, the BX5-D3 features the iconic M-Audio Keyhole design and flexible input functionality with both XLR and ¼ balanced inputs meaning this connect to virtually any mixer or interface setup.
