Overview

The BX8 Carbon studio monitor helps you track, monitor, and mix with confidence by providing accurate sound and dynamic acoustic control. Equipped with a 8" woven Kevlar low-frequency driver and 1.25" natural silk dome tweeter, the BX8 Carbon delivers a flat frequency response, enhanced stereo imaging, and increased clarity for authentic, professional mixing. The bi-amplified 130 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 BX8 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 BX8 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 BX8 Carbon's Acoustic Space Control, a series of calibration tools, helps provide optimal acoustic conditions for tracking, mixing, and monitoring anywhere. Adapt the BX8 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 BX8 Carbon Black Studio Monitor (Each):

I've been in the car audio industry for over a decade... not quite the same, but I've developed an ear for natural tone, and uncolored sound. When I was in the store, the salesman, who said he was a 'live sound' guy, pushed the 6" JBLs ($199/ea, don't recall model), for the heavy bass response and how bright they were. He was right; they were terribly colored and unnatural. For listening loud in a large room, they would be perfect.... But, I want something for recording and mixing... He left the room, and let me take over the switcher on my own for a few. I upsold myself to these (@$349/ea), because they had the absolute truest reproduction in the room. The Yamaha was the first one I got excited about, as I grew up in a Yamaha/Toby home. They were very natural and clean, but the low end (even on the 8") just left something to be desired, especially for reproducing detuned and extended range guitars. And as for KRK Rokit-series? No. #lolrokit Cheap components, turn on delay AND pop, the only thing more bloated and unnecessarily colored than the speakers themselves, is the sound they make. I wasn't even considering M-Audio when I entered the room, and they legitimately earned my purchase. They don't produce overwhelming amounts of bass, but they have a very natural and comfortable roll-off for an 8" driver, even at very high volume. These have provided a soundtrack for a couple of parties, and do an excellent job of filling large areas with sound. I'm currently waiting on my SBX10 subwoofer (That GC doesn't carry...) to arrive to complete the ensemble! Current setup : Steinberg UR242 M-Audio BX8d2 Intel i5 4690k 16GB DDR3 PC1600

Comments about M-Audio BX8 Carbon Black Studio Monitor (Each):

Looking at all the online reviews I had decided to buy the Yamaha hs8's. I live a couple hours from a guitar center but I wanted to hear them before I ordered them. So I made the trip. Listening to the hs8 and the other choice I thought about the JBL's. The yamahas blew the JBL's away in my opinion. Then I heard the bx8 carbon and man that was the ones I bought! They have the clear highs the Yamaha had and the low punch that both the Yamaha and JBL's were missing. Very good sound for the price point.
