The Footprint01 is an active 3-way near field monitor that shares the same Thomas Barefoot signature designs, Dual-Force technology opposing subwoofers, dual-ring radiator tweeter and Multi-Emphasis Monitor Emulation technology, as their MicroMain and MasterStack monitor lines. Footprint01 features dual opposing 8" paper cone subwoofers, a 4" aluminum cone midrange driver, and a 1" dual-ring radiating tweeter, components that all share a lineage with Barefoot's other products.

The Footprint01 features a state-of-the-art DSP crossover, which feeds two Class-D amplifiers and a passive crossover network between the midrange driver and tweeter for clean, balanced sound. And with 500 watts of power to the subs and an additional 150 watts for the midrange driver and tweeter, the Footprint01 packs a powerful punch in a compact frame.

All Barefoot Sound studio monitors are equipped with Multi-Emphasis Monitor Emulation, or MEME technology, which uses sophisticated DSP processing to emulate the sound of a wide range of classic studio monitors. Quickly reference your tracks on three additional monitor profiles and ensure your mixes will translate to any environment.

“Old School” mode emulates the sound of the iconic Yamaha NS10M monitors with an edgy, midrange-forward sound. The “Cube” setting is modeled after the legendary Auratone Sound Cube, giving your mixes a boxy, lo-fi sound. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the “Hi-Fi” setting emulates the sound of consumer hi-fi systems with a sweet high-end and warm midrange. And of course, the “flat” setting delivers the signature Barefoot sound that engineers, producers and musicians around the world have grown to know and love.
