Overview

The Sterling MX3 are a matched pair of bi-amped studio monitors that represents the latest evolution in Sterling Audio design, combining top sound quality with next-generation materials that deliver top-class audio quality and features. With dual-axis WaveGuidanceVH™ technology each bi-amped monitor is built for optimal wider-and-higher frequency dispersion, giving you clear, articulate sound even when listening off-axis.

The MX3’s proprietary multi-fiber 3” low-frequency driver cone delivers superior damping to minimize sonic artifacts and unnatural resonance and its 4-layer voice coil provides greater motor force for outstanding low-frequency performance. The MX3’s rear-port design reduces low-frequency turbulence and distortion, greater improving the overall low-end delivery. Its 3/4” silk dome tweeter powered by neodymium magnets also give the MX3 monitors a smooth and natural frequency response.

Powered by 20 Watts of high-efficiency, low-distortion Class A/B amplification, MX Series monitors deliver best-in-class efficiency and ultra-low distortion and the monitors also include High and low filters to custom tune monitors to your listening preference and environment. With an elegantly polished ebony finish and blue, backlit Sterling logo, these MX monitors look as good as they sound in any studio environment.


Features

3” LF driver with proprietary cone design
3/4” Silk dome tweeter, neodymium magnets
20 Watts of Class A/B amplification
Dual-axis WaveGuidanceVH™ for wide sweet spot
Rear port reduces LF turbulence and distortion
Polished ebony front baffle with logo
Studio grade internal components

Love these speakers as much as I love how cheap I got them for. For the price range, the Sterling MX3's cannot be beat. The high-end is extraordinarily crisp, and these tiny 3" monitors pump out some heavy bass at a loud volume! No distorting unless you are absolutely maxed out at the full 20 watts of volume. Would recommend for anyone on a budget and/or looking to buy their first pair of studio monitors.

    Comments about Sterling Audio MX3 3" Powered Studio Monitor Pair:

    Forget the size! Yes, they are small. I replaced my computer speakers with these so I can edit video and audio and have sound that isn't artificially processed. I can't believe what I am hearing from them! Just fooling around my iTunes library I am hearing things in songs I have listened to hundreds of time that I have never heard before. It completely blows my mind! Wish I would have discovered these years ago. Now I just want to sit at my computer and listen to music.

      These speakers seem perfect for my kids' keyboard. Not a big investment, and the sound is big enough to encourage them to practice.

          Comments about Sterling Audio MX3 3" Powered Studio Monitor Pair:

          Just plug them in! I didn't want to waste my money on regular multimedia computer speakers. I own Yamaha HS-80m Monitors that I use for my main stereo but for a smaller space like my office, these are the perfect size for my desk and sound fantastic. Crisp, clean highs, balanced mid range and a very tight kick in the lows for this size of a speaker. Great Value

                I needed some monitors that I could pack in a suitcase for a convention. I really didn't expect much out these, but they really surprised me. I was shocked at how good they sounded, especially for the price. I had never heard of the brand, but the salesman sold me on them. Highly recommended!
