Next-generation BX Series studio monitors.

The BX Series studio monitors from M-Audio are a trusted set of nearfield speakers in home and project studios around the world. The next-generation BX5 D2 monitors features a bi-amplified design with 70 watts of distributed power, 5” low frequency drivers with Kevlar cones, 1” high-frequency drivers with natural silk domes and integrated waveguides, and optimized rear ports for an extended low-frequency response. Set a pair of BX5 D2 monitors in your sweet spot today and enjoy a clear and accurate translation of your mixes.

Accurate and enjoyable
Whether you’re recording, mixing, or mastering, your monitors are your primary reference source. Accurate monitors let you hear exactly what’s happening in your mixes—and give you the assurance that your music will translate well to other listening environments. The M-Audio BX5 D2 monitors leverage a decade of monitor engineering expertise to deliver exceptional transparency and sonic definition—allowing you to enjoy marathon mixing sessions with minimal listening fatigue.

Designed for pros – and beginners
Countless pros use M-Audio studio monitors to produce and mix the music and audio you hear every day. The BX D2 series makes that same design philosophy and technology available to anyone with a passion for great sound. BX5 D2 helps you understand what’s in your mix so you can make better decisions about how it will translate across a wide variety of systems—from MP3 earbuds to car stereos to audiophile rigs.

Silk-dome, waveguide-loaded, high frequency drivers
M-Audio high-frequency domes are made from natural silk to counter the audible ringing that is inherent in the poorly crafted metallic materials often found in other monitors. The high-frequency driver is fully isolated from the rest of the enclosure to ensure minimum distortion, providing ultra-smooth frequency response up to 22kHz. It also features a built-in waveguide, which offers an expansive sound stage and exceptional imaging.

Rear port cabinet design
The BX5 D2 cabinet is integrally designed with its other components for optimal performance—right down to rounded corners for reduced edge diffraction and superior imaging. The custom rear port is designed to minimize air turbulence and resulting distortion while adding additional low frequency extension.

Bi-amplified efficiency
The Class A/B bi-amplified design dedicates separate power amps to the high and low frequencies—providing ample headroom for even the loudest and most dynamic of mixes. Combined with a finely tuned crossover, the design ensures that each driver only delivers the frequencies that it can reproduce most efficiently, resulting in tonal accuracy and cohesive sound across the entire frequency spectrum.

Find the sweet spot quickly and easily
When monitoring, it’s important to sit in the middle position or “sweet spot” between the two speakers—where the stereo image is optimized. BX5 D2 features a pinhole power LED that makes finding the sweet spot easy. You’ll know you’re in the right listening position when the BX5 D2 power LEDs appear to be brightest.

  • M-Audio BX5 D2 Monitors

    As reviewed by LEONARD TREMBLAY on 4/26/2014

    I'm new to home recording. Anyone who's visited a music store's pro audio department knows of the plethora of Monitors available for the home studio! It's easy to forget the basics when buying monitors you're caught up in buying the newest and most expensive .But for me the M-audio BX5 D2 monitors were the right fit. Priced for the budget studio with great range and clean sound it was the monitors for me I give the BX5 D2 5 stars.....

  • Great for the money

    As reviewed by Carlos Uribe on 1/20/2014

    You could spend more, a lot more. I had a pair of M-Audio BX5a's in my home studio but after a few years one of them started to buzz and was getting worse. I decided to try to replace just one for now so I wanted to stick with the same model but I guess they don't make that one anymore. Seems like the BX5 is the newest version. It actually sounds very close to the one I had but slightly clearer and the bass just a bit tighter. I've had the new speaker for about 2 weeks now and been using it everyday. Super happy with the sound and compact size. Just right for close-in monitoring on a budget. I can image a pair would sound even better.

  • Excellent Budget Monitors. Even for keyboards

    As reviewed by Daniel Caspers on 4/22/2014

    I bought these so that I could use them primarily for speakers for my Yamaha CP50 stage piano, but I have also used them briefly for music and movies. I'll review it under each of these conditions separately, but overall I find these to be quite good, especially since I got them from GC at $80 each. I still think they are likely worth the $150 each. Piano: I was worried about these speakers due to not also using a subwoofer simultaneously. However, these speakers do a marvelous job. They can easily fill medium sized rooms with crisp and clear sounds. The mid-highs/highs and the lows are excellent. The mids/mid lows are somewhat subpar, but not enough to detract from playing. Note that I normally played with my ATH-M50 headphones prior to these. Note, when playing very dense pieces (aka 6-7 notes simultaneously), these things do a good job considering the price, but note that neighboring pitches (especially low-mid) do stress these a bit, and the sound quality does audibly degrade slightly. Music: I have sampled multiple genres of music and couldn't be much happier with these... Except maybe with a subwoofer but it is so far from necessary that I don't intend to buy one. Movies: spectacular. Saving Private Ryan was incredible with these. Again, overall great studio monitors, good look, nice features and quality sound for the price.
