M-Audio BX5 Carbon Monitor (Single)

The M-Audio BX5 Carbon Monitor (Single) helps you track, monitor, and mix with confidence by providing accurate sound and dynamic acoustic control. Equipped with a 5” woven Kevlar low-frequency driver and 1” natural silk dome tweeter, the BX5 Carbon delivers a flat frequency response, enhanced stereo imaging, and increased clarity for authentic mixing in a space-saving design.

The M-Audio BX5 Carbon Monitor's bi-amplified 80 Watt Class A/B amplification means high power with less noise and ensures that your monitoring setup can handle today's modern music with ease. With the BX5 Carbon, your music is ready for any listening environment.

Sweeter Sweet Spot
The tweeter’s waveguide has been enhanced to provide an expansive sweet spot and superior stereo imaging. A wider mix position gives you professional monitoring for any caliber studio. Pinhole-mounted LED placement cues help locate and light up the sweet spot to ensure a speaker placement that reliably translates stereo information and frequencies. When the LEDs turn bright, you know you’re dead center and ready to start mixing your sessions or laying down tracks with the BX5 Carbon.

Acoustic Control
Mixing doesn’t occur in a vacuum. Your listening environment influences your mixing decisions and, ultimately, the sound of your music. The BX5 Carbon's Acoustic Space Control, a series of calibration switches, helps provide optimal acoustic conditions for tracking, mixing, and monitoring anywhere. Adapt the BX5 Carbon to any mixing environment—from bedrooms to basements to professional studios—without compromising frequency detail or stereo image. The result is a flexible monitoring setup for the most demanding mixing environments.

M-Audio April 6, 2015
Reviewer: Nicholas Lopez  
Studio monitors are generally used to produce a flat of a sound as possible for mixing. As you might expect with a 5" speaker there won't be very much bass, so that makes it a little tricky to mix bass heavy music. Everything with the speakers was fine until somehow it started making a loud static noise whenever changing the volume. It was pretty unbearable and too expensive to fix.

Surprisingly equal bass response for their diameter.
M-Audio doesn't get much respect these days it seems, but I really dig these monitors. A+

These monitors are AMAZING. For a low budget studio are perfect. Great sound. I use them for almost 2 years and i am more than satisfied.
They offer clear sound, high, medium and great bass. Real sound. Don't trust any bad reviews on the internet, at this price, these monitors are the best buy. Thx FEA for the best products and prices!
