Overview

The BX5 Carbon studio monitor 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 bi-amplified 70 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.

Comments about M-Audio BX5 Carbon Black Studio Monitor (Each):

When I was testing out monitors, I kept coming back to the BX5's. Their quality and crispness drew me to them and I fell in love. Every time I listen to a song, I can't help but smile because of these speakers. When I'm creating music, the BX5's bring out the best and worst parts about a track and I can hone my sounds in perfectly.

Comments about M-Audio BX5 Carbon Black Studio Monitor (Each):

I recently installed a pair of these as near-field monitors for use with a DAW on my desktop computer. They are so far superior to the speakers they replaced, that I have gone into files and re-mixed some older tunes with great results. As with any new equipment, there's a learning curve as I adjust to the sound, but I'm almost at the point where I trust them completely. No exaggerated bass, clear highs and mid-range. I find them excellent for mixing.

        I'm not a musician. My son is, so I spend a lot of time at Guitar Center. Picked up a pair of these speakers to replace my Audioengine A5+ computer speakers. To me, these are awesome. Tidal + MacBook Pro... So good. Powerful, but clear and spacious. Much more alive, so to say, than the Audioengine's. I'd easily recommend these for just plain old listening pleasure!

        I love the powerful punchy warm sound. Wonderful warm bottom to the lows, great accent on the mids and the right amount of crispness on the highs - you won't be dissapoi!

        This monitor reproduces clear sounds from audio devices and live vocal singing at the same time. This monitor will not sound distorted with full volume on both the monitor and my phone. I use it with the Vocalist LiveFX to practice singing at home so I don't have to drive to church and turn on the whole PA system. My kids use it also. It's a good way for kids to start discovering their talent. I purchased this monitor on sale but it is worth the full retail price.

        Nice speakers from M-Audio

        By JORGE OMAR

        from Tijuana, Baja California

        Site Member

        Comments about M-Audio BX5 Carbon Black Studio Monitor (Each):

        I bought two of this speakers to use them for practice at home with my Yamaha MM6 keyboard and they produce a very crystal clear sound for pianos, guitars and synth from my keyboard. This buy was a very nice upgrade from my Alesis Elevate 3. i would recommend this speakers to any friend looking for a good pair of reference monitors.
