Overview

The Sterling MX8 Black bi-amplified, powered studio monitors combine top sound quality with next-generation materials to meet or exceed the most demanding needs of audio professionals working in project studios. They sound great, have a stylish matte black finish, 8” LF drivers, 1” tweeters, high- and low-frequency control switches, balanced XLR and TRS inputs and unbalanced RCA connectivity. The MX8s are similar in form and function to the MX3s and MX5s, however, the MX8s are the largest monitors in the series, with the deepest bass response and loudest output.

Wide dispersion

The back of the monitors feature a balanced XLR input, a balanced TRS input and an unbalanced RCA. They have a robust power switch, rotary level dial, high-frequency filter with three parameters—+2dB, -2dB and neutral 0—and low-frequency filter with three parameters—+3dB, -3dB and neutral 0. These features allow you to tune your speakers to your room for optimal playback monitoring when mixing and producing so you’re assured the best sound possible. MX8 monitors deliver 125 Watts of high-efficiency, low-distortion, Class A/B amplification with 37Hz – 22kHz frequency response.

Superior damping

The front of the monitors feature acoustically engineered 8” low-frequency drivers with superior damping. This minimizes any sonic artifacts and unnatural resonance to ensure a clean, natural sound for referencing your mixes. It has a four-layer voice coil which provides greater motor force for outstanding low-frequency performance . The 1” silk-dome high-frequency tweeter features a powerful neodymium magnet for a smooth and natural high-frequency response.

Outstanding performance

The MX8s are designed to provide optimal frequency dispersion even when listening off-axis. This means they’ll sound great in imperfect acoustic environments, like most home and project studios, to give you an accurate representation of your music. The bi-amplified Class A/B design ensures superior transient response and a natural bass presence. They also look fantastic with a sophisticated dual matte black finish and backlit Sterling logo, looking as good in your studio as they sound to your ears.
