Fostex employs the latest cone material technology to obtain extremely pure music reproduction with the PM0.5 MKII Active Studio Monitors. Biamplification provides 40W to the 5" LF drivers and 18W to the extremely responsive 3/4" soft-dome tweeters. With the PMO.5 MKII upgrades, the tweeters are now a one-piece assembly with a redesigned damper to eliminate interference for clearer high-frequency response, and the cabinets sport a high-gloss piano black finish on their front. The compact cabinets are specially designed to eliminate unwanted resonance and incorporate a long bass port for deep and accurate low-frequency response.
The Fostex PMO.5's carefully tuned speaker enclosures and circuitry produce great full range performance with exceptional neutrality even at high SPLs. The LF driver cones are made from cut-and-milled aromatic polyamide fibers that are simultaneously resin-impregnated to achieve high rigidity and optimum damping. The cones also have an olefin film thermally adhered to their surface to control frequency response and to ensure long-term reliability. Resin-impregnated cellulose dust caps cover voice coils made of high-purity copper wire for extremely low distortion. Each soft dome tweeter uses UFLC (Poly Urethane Film Laminated Cloth) technology for lightweight and quality performance. Each amplifier is precisely calibrated to match the performance capability of its driver.

So far the speakers really aren't bad at all. They're relatively compact and sound pretty good. But they're not great. They crack and buzz a lot but that's ok. I needed something that sounded just ok so circumstantially these were perfect. They're pretty loud if that's what you're looking for. But you need to make sure you're at least putting them through a board or something via your system otherwise you're not getting the complete output. They'll have a lot more flexibility that way too. Overall i rate these guys a 4. If you need something just so so to give you an accurate replay of the sound you're putting into the system, these'll do it. You can't beat the price either.
I've used a pair of these for several years. Mine have never crackled like the other review suggests. They have a surprisingly solid bass for a small monitor, and the highs are very clear. You will hear a lot of distinction and clarity with these. As to their accuracy (the most important aspect), they are a good start. I've found the need on almost every mix to go back at least once or twice to fix the mix. For the price, that's not too bad at all. I would highly recommend them for anyone with a low budget who wants decent monitors.
