"Small, powerful monitors"

I've owned my pair of M-Audio BX5 Studio Monitors for several years, and I actually initially received them as a gift for helping record a local band. These monitors feature a 5-inch woofer, a 1-inch tweeter, a sub-frequency port in the back, and it has inputs for both XLR and TRS line (1/4 inch). The monitors have a power switch and a volume control on the back, although I would recommend keeping the volume at max, and controlling the output volume from the computer audio hardware. These monitors have no screen or mesh on the front, which makes for clearer sounds, but they can be accidentally damaged if not careful. For example, the covering on the tweeter was accidentally pressed in once during transport. You can definitely see the woofer moving during louder recording sessions.

There are also EQ and acoustic spacing controls on the back: one for bass control, one for treble, one for mid, and the one for acoustic spacing (placement near walls). This allows for fine tuning of the response of the speakers directly, which is certainly necessary.


The sounds from these monitors has been wonderful, and I have never felt the need to replace them. The speakers are solid, I've never heard them crack during louder volumes. If extreme bass response is necessary, you may need to supplement these speakers with a subwoofer. I find that when I'm specifically listening to bass guitar tracks, I'll need to put on my headphones to get a better sound. But if I'm listening to a mix overall, I can certainly hear the bass and kick drums fine.


Overall, these are great medium sized studio monitors, made by a reputable professional audio company, that I would recommend to anyone. They are simple, and they simply get the job done. Even if you are not into professional audio and recording work, these monitors still sound great and are pretty affordable.
