Studiophile BX8a Deluxe Active Monitors

Recording professionals around the world trust M-Audio Studiophile reference monitors for exceptional sonic accuracy. The Studiophile BX8a Deluxe system builds on this legacy with waveguides and enhanced driver integration for greater high-frequency clarity and refined sound. The magnetically shielded monitors feature 8" curved Kevlar low-frequency drivers plus high-temperature voice coils and damped rubber surrounds for durability and fidelity. The 1-1/4" natural silk, waveguide-loaded tweeters deliver a high end that's both clear and easy on the ears. Custom-tuned crossovers distribute 130W of bi-amplified power for optimal frequency handling by each driver.

Deluxe edition
The Studiophile BX8a Deluxe monitors update the best-selling M-Audio BX8a system with a variety of enhancements. The new waveguide delivers a cleaner sound. Custom amplifier tuning enhances the integration between the high and low frequencies, delivering refined spectral balance and a smoother response. An elegant new industrial design completes the package.

Kevlar low-frequency drivers
To insure a lifetime of service, M-Audio constructed the BX8a monitor's 8" low-frequency driver from woven Kevlar. Kevlar's high mechanical and thermal resilience makes it ideal for use in speaker cones. M-Audio's engineers also created a curved conical design that improves room dispersion. High-damping reliable rubber surrounds provide percussive musical bass, and ensure that the cone reaches its optimal excursion for accurate reproduction. And M-Audio's high-temperature voice coils reduce power compression, guaranteeing that your monitors will deliver full performance hour after hour.

Silk-dome, waveguide-loaded, high-frequency drivers
M-Audio's high-frequency domes are made from natural silk to counter the high Q ringing that is inherent in the poorly crafted metallic materials often found in other monitors. In addition, M-Audio's waveguides refine the high-frequency response. M-Audio's FerroFlow technology uses ferrofluid liquid cooling to dissipate heat for maximum efficiency and extended usage.

Bi-amplified efficiency
Active monitors have a distinct advantage over unpowered monitors because the built-in power amps are specially designed to work with the drivers and crossovers in a tuned system. Bi-amplification further refines the concept by dedicating separate power amps to the highs and lows. Combined with a finely tuned crossover, this design insures that both the high- and low-frequency drivers are asked to deliver only the frequencies they are most efficient at reproducing.

Rear-ported cabinet design
The Studiophile BX8a Deluxe monitor's cabinet is integrally designed with its other components for optimal performance - right down to rounded corners for reduced edge diffraction and superior imaging. Custom rear-port design audibly reduces the turbulence and resulting distortion caused by poorly designed ports.

Magnetic shielding
Unchecked, the electromagnetic waves emanating from your speakers can wreak havoc with your computer's video monitor or a nearby TV. The BX8a Deluxe is magnetically shielded so that all of your electronic equipment can coexist without interference.

We got this for my schools recording club due to a grant and it is nice, clearly not the top notch equipment but definately great for the person going out and starting an audio engineering project. You get for what you pay for.

Great Kit for the Price

By Dennis Snyder

from Vancouver, WA

Comments about M-Audio BX8a Monitor and Mic Package:

I purchased all of the above components separately before they were offered in a kit. I paid a lot more money but have been happy with the purchase. They sound great for a person beginning to record music. I use them to monitor my keyboard and acoustic guitar recordings in my home studio and they sound wonderful. The cables in this kit will work fine. However I use Mogami Gold cables on everything I own. I noticed a tremendous sound difference by stepping up to a better cable.
