The M1 Active MK2 combines Alesis’ expertise in reference monitor design and
studio amplification to provide professional accuracy, clarity and performance in
an affordable powered monitor. A bi-amplified reference monitor, the M1 Active
MK2 is incredibly accurate with a wide sweet spot, high power handling and
detailed high- and mid-frequency response that translates perfectly to any playback system. Ideal for desktop video and post production facilities as well as home
and project recording studios.
Attractive mirror-imaged, charcoal- toned
cabinet and shielded drivers allow placement next to computer or video monitors,
while blending beautifully into your
studio’s decor without being obtrusive.
Can be mounted either horizontally or
vertically to fit your studio’s requirements.
The woofer and tweeter were designed for the
most linear, low distortion response. The
6.5˝ woofer cone is formulated from
non-woven carbon fiber. Used in the skins
of combat aircraft wings, carbon fiber has
more tensile strength and is 25% lighter
than polypropylene (the most common
driver material). The result is quicker
transient response in the low frequency
range for superb bass response as well as a
vast improvement in the detail of critical
upper-mid frequencies.
Internal active crossover and custom dual
amps ensure consistent performance under
different studio conditions and program
material. The result is a broad, extremely flat
frequency response, clear imaging with a
wide sweet spot, high power handling and
detailed high- and mid-frequency response.
Pure silk 1˝ tweeter dome’s natural response
prevents ear fatigue during long mix sessions.
It also features an internal pole piece
mounted phasing plug and is ferrofluid
cooled to maintain the best balance of
transient response to power handling.
Offers a audiophile-quality 75w woofer and
25w tweeter amp along with 8th order
high- and low-pass electronic crossover
filters. The crossover point is a low 1500Hz,
and produces an extremely wide dispersion
zone as well as low midrange coloration.
Time alignment circuitry in the tweeter
section of the crossover synchronizes
frequency output from the high and low
drivers avoiding the time smear that’s
typical in less advanced powered
Dual front-mounted ports provide fast,
coherent and extended low frequency
augmentation. Also, the unique offset
design of the high frequency driver
allows for the flattest frequency and
power response in a speaker that offers
such wide dispersion.

The 20/20BAS puts world-class reference monitoring into the
hands of musicians previously shut out by the high cost of those
systems. Based on the 20/20 design, which in itself offers
exceptional sound, the 20/20BAS takes it to the next level with an
active asymmetrical fourth-order crossover—with phase response
so accurate that the resulting stereo imaging simply must be
heard (make that seen) to be believed. Add the custom 130w
amplifier designed specifically for the woofer, followed by the 70w
tweeter amp—that’s 200 watts of ultra clean power per side, and
then independent trim controls for each amplifier, making it easy
to adjust the speakers’ response to your particular monitoring
environment. Simply put, the 20/20 delivers exactly what you want in a reference monitor system: superbly clear, detailed,
sound. Flat, uncolored, accurate frequency response. Precise imaging. Non-fatiguing to the ears.

The 20/20 Direct Field Monitor delivers wonderfully clean,
accurate, pleasing sound at a price most musicians would
consider eminently affordable. Exceptionally reliable, attention
to detail permeates every aspect of the design. Custom
asymmetrical second-order passive crossover ensures smooth
sonic transition from the woofer to the tweeter at the crossover
point. The tweeter is recessed to provide flatter frequency
response. The diecast aluminum trim ring which minimize
acoustic discontinuity between the driver and the cabinet, is also
a unique, self-aligning four-point mounting system for the woofer.
Bi-Amplified Direct Field Monitors
It’s about confidence. Confidence that your monitoring system
is accurate. Confidence that what you’re hearing from your
speakers isn’t being colored. Confidence that your mixes will
sound the way you meant them to sound when they get
played in the car, or in your living room – or in the
office of a record company executive. The Project
Studio monitors inspire that confidence, giving you the
same precise, accurate sound as the award-winning
20/20 series. Not everyone has the space for full-size
direct field monitors. But everyone does have the need
for speakers that provide pure, accurate, detailed
sound. And that’s exactly what you get with the
Project Studio series:
Full-range, non-fatiguing monitoring in a small
profile format. More importantly, PS speakers provide
you with monitoring you can trust, so you know that
your mixes will sound the same in the outside world as they do in your studio. This is accomplished through the use of custom
driver components, as well as amplifiers and electronic crossovers designed specially for those components. The result:
Increased dynamic range. Higher SPL. Greater transient response. Improved damping. Smoother phase response. Lower
intermodulation distortion. Oh, yes, and great sound.
Tuned Reference Bi-amplified Direct Field Monitor Systems
Like their names intimate, the TR (Tuned Reference) 5 and 8
monitors are precision tuned to provide flat frequency response
and uncolored sound, giving you a true sonic reference for mixing.
So when you mix on a Tuned Reference monitor, you know
your mixes will translate accurately to other playback systems.
However, you might think that this level of mix precision comes
at a high price. But thanks to a powerful new ultra-efficient
amplifier (actually two of them, since these are biamplified
systems), they are able to bring you high definition,
non-fatiguing monitoring at prices so low they’re downright
silly. But don’t let the cost fool you: The TR series monitors are
filled with time-tested Event technology, and designed by the
same engineering team behind their full line of criticallyacclaimed monitors. So pick up a pair of TR monitors today.
Your mixes will thank you.

S250 System Subwoofer
The S250 Subwoofer is the core foundation of a professional full bandwidth surround sound monitoring system. With a massive 15˝ driver
and 250W of clean, linear power, the S250 effortlessly provides the high
SPL low frequency output necessary for multi-channel production work.
Why a subwoofer with six inputs (discrete, active, balanced inputs, at
that)? The first input is used for monitoring the Dolby Surround LFE
(Low Frequency Effects) channel; signals appearing at the LFE input
are fed directly to the subwoofer amplifier through a dedicated 120Hz
crossover. The other five inputs are for the five mains channels. These
signals are summed into an additional bass channel, used to extend the
main monitors’ frequency response well below their natural roll-off.
◆ The dual input, dual crossover design features three operational
modes, allowing you to monitor the Dolby LFE channel, extend the
low frequency performance of the mains monitor channels, or do
both functions simultaneously.
◆ The Variable Phase Control, also fed by the summed signal, allows
you to compensate for phase differences that arise from sub /mainsto-listener placement. The result is system-wide low frequency
response that is accurate, defined, and completely in your control.
◆ Includes a variable Monitor Blend crossover control, fed by the
summed mains signal; use the control to precisely and seamlessly
match the subwoofer's high end with the natural low frequency rolloff of the mains monitors.
◆ This flexibility, along with low frequency reproduction that is simply
unrivaled for clarity, definition, and pure, thundering power, makes
the S250 the perfect complement to today's direct field monitoring
systems--including the 20/20bas, 20/20, and Project Studio models.

The voice coil is made of super high purity
copper wire to achieve very low distortion.
The 1-inch soft dome tweeter employs
Fostex’s UFLC technology (poly urethane
film laminated cloth) to achieve lightweight
and high stability performance.
The 6.5˝ LF driver has been developed to output extremely pure music reproduction by employing the latest technology in cone material. The LF cone uses a mixture of cut and milled fibers
that are made from aromatic polyamide. It is then impregnated with resins to simultaneously
achieve high rigidity and optimum damping. The cone has an olefin film thermally adhered to
its surface to control frequency response and to establish long term reliability. The center cap is
made of non-wood cellulose material and is also impregnated with resin.

6301 BEAV
The ideal solution for monitoring in
tight industrial environments,
the RM-1 is the perfect speaker
for machine rooms, VCR monitoring, surveillance, mobile
and stationary control rooms,
theme park applications or any other situation where monitoring is required and space is tight. The unit is a 1 rack space
high industrial design, utilizing robust construction for around the clock operation. The aluminum front panel has a multitude of user options so that the audio output may be configured for the application at hand.
Compact 2-Way Active Nearfield Monitor
With performance comparable to much larger systems, the 1029A’s excellent dispersion
and precise imaging, together with its compact size, make it ideal for near field
monitoring, mobile vans, home studios, multimedia and home theaters.
The amp unit includes an active electronic crossover, over-load protection
circuitry and two power amplifiers, one for each driver. The 1029A has a LF
extension (-3dB at 68Hz) sufficient for most monitoring applications. (If a
lower cutoff frequency is required, it can be complemented with the 7050A
subwoofer). Genelec’s unique Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) technology
provides excellent stereo imaging and frequency balance, even in difficult
acoustic environments. Versatile tone controls allow further matching of the
system to its surroundings. A pair of 1029A’s can produce peak acoustic levels of
over 110 dB SPL at 1m. The speakers can be used vertically or horizontally, and
are easy to set up and use. The 1029A’s integrated design allows the amplifiers
and the drivers to be calibrated as a single unit ensuring consistent quality. The
rugged cast aluminum cabinet has rounded corners and a hard painted outer surface. Available in black, gray, or white
cabinets. (The protective grilles and volume and power knobs are black regardless of cabinet color).
Crossover Filters
Although more commonly used in large and
expensive control room monitors, an active
crossover is the ideal method for dividing the
input signal between the driver units. To
maintain uniform frequency balance in differing acoustic environments, special calibrated
controls are included in the active crossover
network. These controls include treble ‘tilt’,
bass ‘tilt’ and bass ‘roll-off ’ switches.
The bass and treble amplifiers produce 40
watts of output power each, with very low
THD and IM distortion values. The amps are
designed to ensure the highest subjective
sound quality possible. The amplifier unit also
contains a protection circuit that monitors the
output levels and prevents any damage to the
drivers. This makes the system immune to
overloads and spurious signals.
Two input connectors
(balanced XLR and 1/4˝
TRS) offer great flexibility
as they can be used in
parallel with two sources
connected to the monitor
at the same time. An
additional configuration is
using a single 1029A to
monitor a stereo output.
The volume control is
located on the front panel.
This allows easy level
matching with other
audio equipment.
◆ A 3/4˝ metal dome tweeter is loaded by a
DCW, and is used to reproduce the high
frequencies. The DCW is integrated into
the one piece cabinet front baffle.
◆ The 5˝ woofer is a bass cone driver
mounted in a 4.5 litre vented cabinet. The
-3 dB frequency is 68 Hz and the LF
response extends down to 65 Hz (-6dB).
◆ Protective grills are placed in front of both
drivers, and both are magnetically shielded,
allowing use near video monitors.
Mounting Options
◆ On the base of the monitor is a 3/8˝ UNC
threaded hole which can accommodate a
standard microphone stand.
◆ There is a provision for an Omni-mount
size 50 bracket, for which two M6x10mm
screws are required.
◆ Alternatively the speaker can be hung on
M4 screws with suitable heads by one of
the three keyhole slots on the backpanel.
◆ The speaker can be hung in a horizontal
or vertical position. Friction pads are provided for placement on a shelf or a stand.
612⁄ ˝ Bi-amplified Active Monitor
The Genelec 1030A is a very compact bi-amplified active monitor system, which has performance
comparable to much larger systems. The vented speaker enclosure has an amplifier
unit set into the back. This unit contains an active electronic crossover, over-load
protection circuitry and two power amplifiers: one for each driver. The system’s
excellent dispersion and precise imaging together with its compact size make it
ideal for near field monitoring, broadcast and TV control rooms, mobile vans,
home studios and travelling engineers. Genelec’s unique Directivity Control
Waveguide (DCW) technology is used to provide excellent stereo imaging and
frequency balance, even in difficult acoustic environ-ments and the versatile
crossover controls allow further matching of the system to its surroundings. A
pair of 1030As can produce peak acoustic levels of over 115 dB SPL at 1m. The
speakers may be used in vertical or horizontal orientation.
Same features as the 1029APM EXCEPT—

DCW (Directivity Control Waveguide) Technology
Incorporated in the 1029A and 1030 monitors, Directivity Control
Waveguide (DCW) technology is a means of improving the performance
of a direct radiating multi-way loudspeaker under normal listening
conditions. One of the basic aims is to match the performance of the
drivers in terms of both frequency response and directivity. This results
in a smoother overall frequency response on and off axis. In addition, the
improved directivity control causes more direct sound and less reflected
sound to be received at the listening position. This provides improved
stereo imaging and ensures that the system is less sensitive to differing
control room acoustics than conventional direct radiator design.
DCW Technology improves the drive unit sensitivity by +2 to +6 dB
(depending on the particular application), thus also increasing the
available system maximum sound pressure level.

Digital Monitoring Speakers
The 2029A and 2029B are near field monitors that combine digital audio
and analog audio inputs in a single speaker system. They are ideal for
working with a digital audio workstation or if you are processing audio
in a modern studio where your signal is digital. The 2029A/B support all
the same modes of operation as the analog 1029A. You can use them with
a subwoofer. You can use them in surround audio systems. Due to their
compact size, integrated construction, excellent dispersion and precise
stereo imaging, they are ideal for near field monitoring, mobile vans,
digital audio workstations, broadcast and TV control rooms, surround
sound systems, home studios, multimedia applications and also for use
with computer sound-cards. They also incorporate Genelec’s Directivity Control Waveguide
(DCW) technology for excellent frequency balance even in difficult acoustic environments.
Digital Interface
The 2029A is precision-aligned and balanced—from the single stereo 24-bit
S/PDIF digital input—to the highly efficient 110dB/SPL matched drivers. The
2029A is 48kHz compatible. The 2029B
offers the same precision alignment with
an AES/EBU digital interface on a digital
XLR-type input. The 2029B is 9kHz compatible. Both monitors incorporate
extremely linear, integrated D-to-A converter circuitry to offers a precisionmatched electrical interface to the active
electronics and amplifiers.
The bass frequencies are reproduced by a
130 mm (5˝) bass driver mounted in a 4.5
litre vented cabinet. The -3 dB point lies at
68 Hz and the frequency response extends
down to 65 Hz (-6 dB).
◆ The high frequency driver is a 3/4˝ metal
dome. Uniform dispersion control is
achieved with the revolutionary DCW
Technology pioneered by Genelec.
◆ Magnetic shielding is standard on the
2029A/2029B. Shielding is vital for applications such as video post production, where
stray magnetic fields must be minimized.
Integrated Construction
◆ As
the digital interface and amplifiers are
built into the speaker enclosure, the only
connections required are the mains supply
and the digital input signal, making them
very easy to set up and use.
Their active crossover network is acoustically complementary and the slopes are
24 - 32 dB/octave. The crossover frequency
is 3.3 kHz. The room response controls
(‘treble tilt’, ‘bass tilt’ and ‘bass roll-off ’)
allow exact match to any installation.
The amplifier unit is built inside the speaker enclosure. The bass and treble amplifiers
both produce 40 W of output power. The
fast, low distortion amplifiers are capable
of driving a stereo pair to peak output
sound pressure levels in excess of 110 dB at
1 m. The unit incorporates special circuitry
for driver overload protection.
The response of the system usually has to
be adjusted to match the acoustic environment. The adjustment is done by setting
the tone control switches on the rear panel.
The tone control has four switches and can
adjust ‘treble tilt’, ‘bass tilt’ and ‘bass rolloff.’ The factory settings for these are ‘ALL
OFF’ to give a flat anechoic response.
Digital Audio
The quality of a digital audio signal is defined by two parameters: word length and
sampling rate. The word length defines how precisely the audio signal is represented.
Longer word length leads to smaller noise and distortion level. The typical word length in
CD records is 16-bits. Studio recording systems use word lengths of 20-bits and above. The
sampling rate determines what frequencies can be represented in the digital audio signal. A
higher sampling rate allows higher frequencies to be recorded.
◆ Turning the digital presentation to an analog signal using a DA converter involves
significant sources of error. Your digital-to-analog converter may have inferior
performance. It may be misaligned with your amplifiers. The interface between the
converter and the amplifier may distort the signal or it may change the frequency balance.
Your monitoring volume level may need to be adjusted in the digital domain instead of
analog. Genelec 2029A Digital allows you to solve all of these problems. The alignment of
the whole system from the digital input connector is carefully balanced, to make sure that
you hear the whole digital truth, and nothing but the truth. All you have to do is to supply
the digital signal, and adjust for the volume you desire.

Analog and Digital Cabling
Special interconnect cable connects between
the XLR connectors of the two 2029A Digital
monitors. The IEC958 interface cable from
your digital audio source connects to one of
the 2029A Digital units. In the digital audio
reproduction mode the output level for both
speakers pair is controlled with the right
unit. The balance is automatically calibrated
correctly with the proposed output level setting on the left unit.
Mounting Options
There are several possibilities for mounting
the 2029A/2029B. On the base of the monitor is a 3/8˝ UNC threaded hole which can
accommodate a standard microphone stand.
There is a provision for an Omnimount size
50 bracket, for which two M6x10mm screws
are required. Alternatively the speakers can
be hung on M4 screws with suitable heads by
one of the three keyhole slots on the backpanel. They can be hung in a horizontal or
vertical position. Friction pads are provided
for placement on a shelf or a stand.
7060A/7070A 10˝ and 12˝ Active Multi-Channel Subwoofers
The 7060A and 7070A are powerful and precise bass monitoring tools for today’s
5.1 or 6.1-channel surround sound or traditional stereo systems. With their 19Hz
(7070A) or 29Hz (7060A) lower cutoff frequency, high sound pressure output
capability and versatile bass management systems, they can be adapted to all low
frequency monitoring situations.
◆ The built-in bass management unit has six
signal input and output channels (L/C/R

Professional Active Monitors
You have one goal when choosing a reference monitor. Music. Accurate music.
Nothing else matters. Hafler has the same goal. They don't design for price
points. They design for application and performance. However, Hafler did
challenge their best engineers to design the finest sounding active near-field
monitor available at an affordable price. The result was the TRM6.1
Trans•ana and TRM8.1 Trans•nova Reference Monitors – heralded by some
as the finest powered monitors available.
Every component is designed and matched to deliver the most accurate music
possible. They provide honest, consistent sound from top to bottom with sonic
clarity usually found in much more expensive speakers. They feature built-in
amplification, active crossovers, and Hafler’s patented power amp circuitry
– known for its accurate soundfield, in width, height and depth.
Following in the footsteps of the TRM8, the TRM6
incorporates Trans•ana amplifier technology at an even
more affordable price. Whether tracking, mixing, or
mastering, the TRM6 delivers the consistency and accuracy that are a must in today’s competitive environment.

Downfiring Trans•ana Class-G Active
10- and 12˝ Subwoofers
Passive and Active 412⁄ ˝ Nearfield Monitors
The Circle 3 (passive version) and Circle 3 Active (powered version) are compact
monitor speakers designed for nearfield use, or in critical monitoring applications
where space is limited. The Circle 3 uses a highly linear, custom-designed 4.5˝ bass
driver, built on an acoustically dead chassis to eliminate undesirable resonant
effects. High frequencies are reproduced by a ferro-fluid cooled soft dome tweeter.
And despite standing just over 10˝ high, the Circle 3 delivers a robust, full range
sound with a surprisingly extended low end response.
The Circle 3 Active adds a bi-amp module delivering 60w of power to the bass
driver and 30w to the tweeter. And unlike most compact active monitor designs,
the Circle 3 Active’s LF amplifier is not limited, as this unbalances the sound at
high listening levels. Rather, the bass drivers are engineered to handle the full amp
output. And controlled order crossover management makes the Circle 3’s particularly
easy to listen to, even on long sessions. Magnetic shielding on both versions, makes them ideal for use in any application where
close proximity to a CRT monitor is required.
12˝ Subwoofer
Much more than just a
subwoofer, the Circle 1 is
a complete speaker
management system,
forming the heart of a high
performance, professional
surround sound monitoring
system. In addition to a 12˝ low moving mass bass driver
and 160-watt amp module, the Circle 1 also features 5
channel active filtering with a mode switch making it easy to
configure the system for a variety of stereo and surround
monitoring applications.
Low frequency boost control is provided to increase the level of the
bass component in low level monitoring applications
Phase control can be used to achieve optimum sub bass performance in differing room acoustics.

Design of the cabinet porting assists in producing a frequency
response that extends down to 33Hz.

Connection to the Circle 1 is via six balanced XLR inputs
and five XLR outputs. Although the Circle 1 is designed
primarily for use in a surround sound system, there are
many people who would like to increase the bass frequencies or overall level available from their speakers. So when
two or more speakers are connected to the input channels,
the Circle 1 sums the signals from the front left and right
speakers and filters out their bass frequencies for
reproduction from the sub-woofer, leaving the satellite
channels to reproduce the mid and high-frequencies.
A switch on the back of the Circle 1 sets it for 5.1 surround
sound operation where, instead of reproducing the filtered
frequencies from the satellite speakers it is driven from a
dedicated sub input. Additional rotary controls are provided
for input sensitivity, LF Boost and Phase. With its outputs
connected to five active Circle 5’s, the result is a powerful,
detailed and truly universal 5.1 monitoring system.
Passive and Active 8˝ Midfield Monitors
Accurate and revealing monitors ideal for use in midfield stereo or surround sound
monitoring applications, both the passive (Circle 5) and powered (Circle 5 Active)
share a custom-designed 8˝ bass driver that is injection-molded from a specially
formulated plastic compound. The rolled sheets used by other manufacturers retain a
grain pattern in the molded cone, introducing unwanted compressions both with and
across the grain and ultimately degrading performance. The random grain pattern in
the HHB cone suffers none of these problems and resonances are minimized yet
further by varying the thickness of the cone across its surface.
Like the Circle 3, the Circle 5 uses controlled order crossover management to achieve
an accurate sound that never tires the listener. And like the Circle 3 Active, there is no
amp limiting so the full bass component of sound is present at all volume levels.

The standard for over a decade, the 4206 (6.5˝)
and 4208 (8˝) are console-top monitors designed
specifically for near field use in multi-purpose studio
environments. Starting with the unique Multi-Radial
sculptured baffle, the monitors direct the axial output
of the individual components for optimum summing
at the most common listening distance (approx. 3 to
5´). To deliver maximum stereo imaging while reducing
the potential for listener fatigue, the pure titanium dome tweeter and cone transducer are aligned to deliver both high and
low-frequency information to the listening position at precisely the same instant. They monitors also deliver smooth, extended
bass output with little distortion and power compression. The 4206 and 4208 are rated at 8 Ω and are magnetically shielded.
◆ 1˝ titanium HF transducers deliver smooth, extended response. The
tweeter features a uniquely shaped “lens” which acts as a mechanical
filter to balance energy output to within ±2 dB to 20 kHz.
◆ The long linear excursion design of the low frequency transducers
results in smooth extended bass output with less distortion and
power compression.
◆ Smooth transition from low to high frequency components is
achieved through carefully engineered high complexity crossover networks. Tight tolerances are maintained to achieve seamless summing
and minimal distortion.
For years recording, broadcast, movie and TV studios worldwide
have depended on the 4400 Series as their critical listening source.
Countless music recordings and movie soundtracks were created
with 4400 Series monitors, while broadcast studios rely on them
to deliver faithful sound reproduction, typically 24 hours a day,
seven days a week. Available in two-way and three-way systems,
they all utilize JBL transducer technology with SFG magnet
structures, large diameter voice coils and titanium dome tweeter.
Low frequency drivers employ Symmetrical Field Geometry
(SFG) magnet structures to minimize harmonic distortion,
resulting in maximum definition of bass and low midrange
information. Large voice coils provide excellent transient
response characteristics and outstanding power handling.
4408A 2-way 8˝ Studio Monitor
Two-way compact monitor system ideal for smaller recording studios or for
broadcast studio monitor control rooms.

acoustic centers so that low, mid and high frequency information
reach the ears at the same point in time—resulting in superb imaging
and greatly reduced phase distortion.
THX-Approved Studio Monitors
The Linear Spatial Reference (LSR) philosophy is based on a set of design goals that carefully control the overall performance
of the system ina variety of acoustic spaces. Instead of focusing on a simple measure such as on axis frequency response, LSR
designs require much better control over dispersion via transducer design and crossover frequency selection. Critical decisions of
image placement, EQ, balance and timbre are typically made within ±15° vertically and ±30° horizontally. This workspace is
where the engineer, producer and artist make critical mixing decisions. By incorporating LSR into the system design requirements, placement rules are relaxed, a more stable stereo image is maintained and off axis coloration is minimized.

LSR Measurement Techniques
LSR is the underlying design philosophy that explains why speakers that measure the same, sound different. By going beyond simple on-axis
frequency measurement, LSR techniques define the ultimate performance specifications of JBL’s monitoring technology—what it will sound
like in your room. They go beyond the performance of an on-axis frequency response at one point in space, which other manufacturers use.
LSR uses a technique of measuring a monitor over a sphere that encompasses all energy radiated into the listening room in every direction.
This data reflects 1296 times the information of a single on-axis frequency response curve. Using psychoacoustic principles allows the
calculation and optimization of the entire sound field heard by the listener - this includes the direct sound field, the reflected sound field
and the reverberant sound field. In place of spectral smoothing, which actually conceals data, LSR techniques expose flaws in systems such as
resonances, poor dispersion and other off-axis colorations.
LSR12P Powered Subwoofer
Subwoofer signals are fed by the Left, Center, Right and Discrete inputs.
This unique arrangement provides excellent bass management for a wide
variety of formats. The subwoofer signals can be derived from the front
channels or from the discrete input with a simple remote switch contact.
Alternatively, the subwoofer can be muted with full range signals routed
to the front channels for comparison with or without subwoofer support.
Calibrated input levels for -10 dBV and +4 dBu inputs are included.
In addition, an input attenuator can be inserted into the circuit for
continuously variable level control to fine tune subwoofer level
matching. Subwoofer low pass filtering uses steep 5th order low pass
filtering to minimize the possibility of localization of the subwoofer
acoustic output. High pass filtering for the Left, Center and Right
outputs are at 12 dB/Octave.
There are six dip switches that allow you to optimize the
LSR12P’s performance. The first three switch settings adjust the
calibration level of the Left, Center and Right inputs. Switch
four inverts the signal polarity of the subwoofer feed. This is
used to correct for placement mismatch between the subwoofer
and satellite spacing. Switches five and six adjust the low frequency spectrum to compensate for boundary effects when a
subwoofer is placed against walls or corners.
A 1/4˝ jack is included on the back panel which allows remote
control bypass of the subwoofer and selection of the discrete
input. Shorting the Tip and Sleeve of the jack will remove the
high pass filtering from the Left, Center and Right outputs and
sources the subwoofer feed from the discrete input.

The LSR12P is the ideal companion to the LSR25P, LSR28P and LSR32. It
is multi-channel compatible for AC-3, DTS and other surround sound
formats. It features a 12˝ Neodymium woofer based on JBL’s patented
Differential Drive technology. The cone is made of carbon fiber composite
for low cabinet resonance and stable inertial ground. The integrated
250-watt power amp provides correct drive levels for optimized frequency
response. Bass management for multiple formats is provided with separate
left, center and right crossover functions as well as a discrete input.
The V-Series are bi-amplified near-field reference monitors capable of satisfying the
most critical listening requirements. Separate built-in power amplifiers for the woofer
and tweeter and a true electronic crossover that tailors the power
and frequency response specifically for each transducer, combine
to deliver the dynamic range and performance required for
everything from digital production to 5.1 surround sound.
KRK’s goal for the V-Series was to create monitors capable of
accurately reproducing sound with unsurpassed clarity and
accuracy. Other monitors tend to modify, extend, or “tilt” their
response above 1 kHz to sound more “spatial, exciting and
impressive”. What is often overlooked is this practice tends to
make you incorrectly balance your mixes to compensate for this
effect, leading to poor “translation”. The V-Series was designed to
reproduce the signal with a minimal of frequency enhancement.
Rather than attempting to defy physics, they deliver unaltered high frequencies and respectable low frequency response with
exceptional accuracy from their woofer in a reasonably small cabinet.
Ability to Translate -
Flexibility -
No Compression -
A mix made on a V-Series monitor will
translate to other environments and other
monitors with no surprises—saving you time
and eliminating extra work. They monitors
will perform flawlessly for years in professional
and non-professional environments alike.
They contain an active input circuit specifically
designed for balanced or unbalanced input
signals. They accept XLR and 1/4˝ phone or
TRS connectors.
Balanced Power –
Each monitor cabinet contains three active
filters (subsonic, low-pass and high-pass filter).
These three filters work together to deliver
superior linear frequency response. Active
filter crossovers generate less heat resulting in
no signal drift or component variations to
provide a more stable image.
V-Series monitors contain no signal
compression which artificially limits the
dynamic range of the program source.
Although some monitors use signal
compression to make them sound louder,
fuller, and to control unwanted characteristics
of the raw drivers, the result is a compromised
mix. V-Series design is uncomplicated without
extras between you and your mix.
KRK’s amplifier construction is proven,
durable and straightforward. Output wattage
is balanced to optimize LF and HF driver
performance. V-Series monitors use a toroidal
power transformer for the lowest possible
hum and minimum noise artifacts

Custom Made Drivers All except the V6 (uses a specially designed
polyvinyl LF driver) use a woven Kevlar LF
driver custom-designed for their individual
cabinet volume with one goal in mind—
minimal compromises, no surprises. Kevlar is
one of the strongest, lightest, most rigid
materials that can be used in modern speaker
cone construction.
There’s big sound coming out of the V4
mini monitor. In KRK fashion, the V4
has separate amplifiers for both woofer
and tweeter, which make it extremely
clean and virtually eliminating any
distortion. Video shielding is standard,
making it an optimum choice for small
audio workstations. A Neutrik Combo
connector gives it ultimate flexibility for
both balanced and unbalanced signals, it
also gives you the option of using 3
different connectors (XLR, 1⁄4˝ TRS, or 1⁄4˝ Instrument). Paired with
the S8 subwoofer, it just goes to show that good things do come in
small packages!
For the professional who needs
an active near field monitor able
to satisfy the most critical listening requirements, yet be
portable enough to take on
location, the new V8 studio reference monitor is the answer.
The V8 uses a separate power
amplifier for the woofer and
tweeter with an electronic
crossover so that the power and
frequency response is tailored to
each transducer. The V8’s
Kevlar woofer is extremely fast
and does not have audio band
resonances that color the sound. Using the Neutrik Combo connector,
the V8 can handle both XLR and .25˝ phone plug inputs, and video
shielding is standard.

6.7˝ and 8.75˝ 2-Way Active Near-Field Monitors
One of the most accurate near-field monitors ever built, thousands of recording studios and
post-production facilities rely on the HR824 to reveal details that comparable monitors simply cannot resolve. Frequency response is an astonishing 38Hz to
20kHz ±1.5dB. To achieve such a sweet spot and smooth response,
the HR824 uses technology not found in typical vented-box near
field monitors. A cast zinc exponential waveguide disperses
sound evenly and integrates the output of the HF and LF
drivers. Its servo-coupled LF transducer works in conjunction
with a rear-firing passive transducer to extend low octaves and
eliminate vent noise. The HR824 uses two separate high-current
amplifiers with discrete circuitry. And it is fully stuffed with dense
foam to fully damp internal vibrations before they can escape
through the LF transducer.
Employing the same acoustic technology as the HR824, but in a
compact version, the HR624 is deal for rear surround sound channels in existing HR824 front left/right systems or as a main monitor system in control rooms and editing suites where space
is at a premium. When using the HR624 as the primary monitor in project rooms or off-line editing suites, mixes will flawlessly transfer to an “A” room that employs HR824’s. The HR624 is flat ±1dB from 55Hz to 20kHz.

Active Near-Field
and Reference Studio Monitors
If you have limited space or budget, the sound of the SP-5B near-field monitors will
amaze you. You get the same engineering criteria and component quality that goes into
the SP-8B reference monitors: two-way bi-amped power, magnetic shielding, swivelmounted tweeter, high-quality crossover network electronics and Sub-Frequency Port.
The 5˝ mineral-filled polypropylene woofer and 3/4˝ silk tweeter accommodate a smaller
cabinet design that allows placement just about anywhere—all with a frequency response
of 48Hz to 22kHz. Backed by 75 watts of power, these babies scream.
The SP-8B offers two-way bi-amped near-field technology
delivering 100 watts of professional sound at a fraction of
the cost of similar-sized monitors. The 8˝ mineral-filled
polypropylene woofers and 1˝ silk tweeters work in
conjunction with 4th-order Linkwitz Riley crossover networks
and custom cabinet designs to yield smooth frequency
response across the audio spectrum. The Sub-Frequency
Port even pumps out frequencies down to 33Hz. Magnetic
shielding minimizes interference with computer monitors
and the unique swivel-mounted tweeter design even allows
you to fine-tune your sweet spot.
Studiophile Standard Features
Why Studiophile Monitors?
You can have all the best gear in the world and still turn out inferior mixes
unless you have monitors that tell your ears what's really happening. With
that in mind, M-Audio designed the Studiophile line—world-class reference
monitors that deliver exceptional quality at amazingly affordable prices.
Choose from the SP-8B with 8˝ woofer or the bookshelf-sized SP-5B with 5˝
woofer. Add the optional SP-8S subwoofer to either and you've got all the
bass you need to rattle the rafters.
The key to the Studiophile line's accurate sound is the synergistic design and
integration of all elements, thus providing superior performance and fidelity
over component systems. Specially designed network and power amplifiers
properly distribute low, mid, and high frequencies to reduce distortion and
power loss. M-Audio further optimized the active circuitry to deliver flat
frequency response, smooth transition in the crossover region, and
maximized power handling.
The silk tweeters are swivel-mounted, allowing you to adjust their position for
ultimate control over imaging and sweet spots. The tweeters also incorporate
magnetic shielding to minimize reaction time, as well as ferro-fluid and
internal damping technologies to minimize resonance. The woofers feature a
magnetically shielded mineral-filled polypropylene cone with a hightemperature tolerant voice coil and damped rubber surround. And the
cabinet designs produce amazing bass for these sized enclosures thanks to a
Sub-Frequency Port designed to discharge extreme low frequencies.

The tweeter is swivel mounted so that you can
adjust the position and direction. This unique feature accommodates various loudspeaker-mounting
positions, allowing great control over imaging.
The Sub-Frequency Port discharges extreme low
frequencies under 30Hz. The monitors take advantage of this port to generate extreme low frequencies despite the small footprint of the enclosures.
Reference Monitors
Monitors that adapt to your needs
Your monitors should be able to adapt to any changes in placement or work environment. That’s just what the BX5 and BX8 do. Since a
monitor’s bass response can change depending upon proximity to walls, their Acoustic Space control
section allows you to optimize their performance—no matter whether you need to put them on stands, on
a bookshelf or in the corners. You can also adjust the high-frequency response to compensate for reflective
Acoustic Space Control Section
surfaces like glass. The presence control gives you an automatic mid-range boost for added flexibility.
There’s even a variable low-frequency roll-off to optimize response at crossover points when adding a subwoofer like the SP-8S.

While the SP-8B and SP-5B offer as much or more bass response as you’ll find in any monitors of
similar size, the addition of an SP-8S subwoofer puts 120 watts of truly bone-shaking bass in your
face. In fact, so many consumers have subwoofers that you’re not really mixing accurately without
having a sub yourself. M-Audio’s unique Stereo Bass Management System splits the signal at the
variable crossover frequency, routing everything below to the sub and everything above to the
mains. The SP-8S is so affordable, it makes an excellent companion to other monitors as well.
What’s Stereo Bass Management?
When subwoofers are added to many systems, all frequencies are routed to both the main monitors and the sub. The sub typically has a low-pass
filter to roll off the highs-as does the SP-8S. The problem is that both the main monitors and the sub are still trying to put out the same low
frequencies, thereby compromising fidelity. Our Stereo Bass Management System solves that and delivers optimal quality. The SP-8S accommodates
the stereo outputs from your mixer, and your main monitors then connect to outputs on the sub. The SP-8S’s internal crossover network splits the
signal at a user-defined crossover frequency (50-180Hz), routing everything below it to the internal sub and everything above it the main outputs.
This significantly improves fidelity because the sub and mains aren’t tripping over each other to reproduce the same frequency-and each component
only has to reproduce frequencies to which it is ideally suited.

The latest in the popular Studiophile series , the BX5 and BX8 deliver exceptional quality and professional sound. They offer 5.25˝ (BX5) and 8˝ low-frequency drivers (BX8),
1˝ high-frequency drivers, and 75 or 130 watts of bi-amped near-field technology at a
fraction of the cost of other monitors of this quality. The 1˝ natural silk high-frequency drivers employ a flush design and electronic time alignment with the low-frequency driver, resulting in controlled dispersion for superior three-dimensional imaging.
The tooled rear Sub-Frequency Ports reduce low-frequency turbulence and optimize
driver excursion for amazing bass in a small footprint.
Powered Studio Monitors
NHTPro believes a studio monitor shouldn’t deliver
“good” sound, but complete sound. Like a fine sports car,
the goal isn’t comfort, but total feedback about road and
driving conditions. When all is said and done, your
studio monitor is what links flesh and blood into the
recording console, enabling you to make the expert
decisions that mean exceptional product.
Through it all - miking decisions, mixing decisions,
processing decisions - your monitors must remain
unflinchingly accurate and unerringly consistent. There
is little point in developing new monitors and then
adhering to traditional design decisions. This is why
you’ll find that many important aspects of NHTPro’s
modular monitoring systems, while sharing basic functional elements with other speakers, are unconventional.
Modular Amplification
The first element that distinguishes NHT
monitors from other powered monitors is
their use of “external” amplifier/crossover
modules. The benefits of powered systems
are widely recognized, buy it often goes
unnoticed that integrating the crossover and
amplifier into the speaker enclosure can
produce performance and convenience
penalties. NHT’s external approach
maintains the advantages of a unified system,
while overcoming the limitations of single
box designs. Dynamic headroom and
sustained power output capabilities are on
par with the finest rack-mounted amplifiers,
with response tailored exactly to the monitors. Controls are easy to reach, logical to use,
and designed for positive, repeatable setting.
A-20 System
When your work demands the absolute in resolution, the A-20 is your ally in excellence. By
providing both frequency and time domain performance that sets new standards of accuracy, the
A-20 reveals the minute differences in sound character that distinguish the very finest recordings.
Details of microphone selection and placement, processing and equalization, reverberation and
acoustic signature,s signal purity and integrity, are revealed without emphasis or disguise.
C-20 amplifier
C-20 System
The C-20 is a powered center channel monitor designed for surround recording. Combined with
the A-20 system and B-20 powered subwoofer, the C-20 forms the basis of a matched, balanced
reference-quality 5.1 monitoring solution. The C-20 is an exact duplicate of A-20 stereo monitoring
system in a monaural configuration. The 250-watt amplifier is housed in a space saving 1RU chassis
with the same input and control set. It employs the same A-20 driver configuration in an acoustic
suspension design. However, the enclosure is rectangular for proper center channel dispersion.
They use passive components that are small,
electrically well-behaved and can be made to
naturally “track” changes in the driver frequency for consistent response at high listening levels. Furthermore, single amp systems
can be designed with a lower residual noise
floor than bi-amped ones, due to a much
simpler signal path, and to the introduction
of bandwidth filtering just prior to the driver
terminals. Each modular systems comes
with matched, controlled-parameter, low
impedance XLR speaker cables.

Powered Subwoofer System
Designed to integrate seamlessly with NHTPro’s flagship A-20 monitors or
any larger powered monitoring system, the B-20 produces remarkable,
musical bass from a compact and flexible design. With output
>100dB at 30Hz, the B-20 adds full frequency response and dynamics to near, mid and far-field monitoring environments. Offering a
fully featured set of controls, the system can be seamlessly integrated
with most monitors and most rooms. And the remote control included in the B-20 system integrates it into any sort of mix or production,
offering on the fly stereo/mono switching and system in/system
bypass, which also engages or defeats the high pass filter.
Employs two custom designed, extremely long throw paper cone
woofers with massive surrounds. Excursion for the woofer is 2˝ peak
to peak and 1.6˝ linear allowing high output with low distortion.
Each 14˝ square B-20 cabinet is constructed of 1˝ MDF bonded to
high-pressure laminate both internally and externally creating a rigid,
sonically-neutral environment for each driver. Cones are provided to
decouple the woofer from the floor if required.
The system's control amplifier is similar to other NHT Pro modular
designs. This approach offers superior heat dissipation and eliminates
potential vibration induced problems allowing higher power levels
and improved headroom. As a result, the B-20 Control Amplifier, featuring dual-mono construction with discrete output devices, delivers
250W RMS/CH (400W peak), while taking up only two rack spaces.
Ergonomically, this modular design puts the B-20’s user controls, all
of which are located on the front of the amplifier, within reach of the
listening position providing ease of setup and fine adjustments.

for extended bass and higher monitoring levels. Finally, for those who need to use the near-fields near video monitors, shielded
versions of the System 600 and System 800 are available.
The Proto-J is the latest playback
monitor from Tannoy. It has an
extremely detailed, dynamic sound
with a wide, flat frequency response
- all of which are essential for
monitoring with reliable accuracy.
The 3/4˝ soft dome HF unit is
seamlessly matched to a 6.5˝ long
throw bass unit by the precision
low-loss crossover network. The
drive units are discretely mounted
on a 3/4˝ MDF baffle. The front
edges of the vented enclosure are
chamfered to reduce high frequency diffraction. The back panel
features two 5 way binding post inputs and integral inserts to
accommodate OmniMount 50 Series wall brackets that allows
wall mounting for easy and flexible 5.1 surround sound installs.
Proto-J is designed to compliment the Tannoy PS 110B 5.1
Subwoofer as a complete package.
Dual Concentric Design
Conventional monitor designs lock you into a tiny ‘sweet spot’
monitoring position. Move to adjust a fader and the sound
changes. Not with Tannoy’s Dual Concentric monitors. The
patented Point Source design creates a coherent wavefront
that is consistent both on and off axis. The result is a high
performance reference monitor which you can trust, providing
consistent accurate sound over a wide mix position.
The System 600 and 800 monitors use the Dual Concentric
design, in which the woofer and tweeter are mounted on the
same axis. Their 6.5- or 8˝ polypropylene woofer crosses over
at 1.6 kHz to the tweeter centered in the woofer cone. This
design forms a point source, which results in sharp stereo
imaging. It also prevents the lobing often seen with staggered
drivers. If you sit anywhere off-axis — up, down, left or right
— the response is consistent. The speakers can be placed
horizontally or vertically with the same response. The shape of
the woofer cone acts as a hyperbolic waveguide for the tweeter
sound waves, producing a spherical wavefront. And since the
low-and high-frequency signals are aligned in time, the phase
response is uniform and the transient response is tight.
SYSTEM 600A/800A
Signal input is via a Neutrik combi connector, which combines a three-pin XLRtype with a TRS locking 1/4” phone jack.

Tannoy’s SuperTweeters were designed to provide the extended high
frequency response demanded by modern program material and sources
such as SACD (Super Audio CD), DVD-Audio and DTS which have driven
the requirement for loudspeakers with extended frequency bandwidth performance. By allowing the listener to experience a far wider range of bandwidth information of instruments than is currently possible with conventional loudspeakers, the ST50 and ST100 complete the musical picture.
They not only have the ability to resolve fine detail of high frequency notes
but also effectively enhance the listening experience even at lower frequencies.
Music contains transient information and
rich harmonics beyond the range of human
hearing for pure tones. Even bass notes have
leading edge transients reaching 30kHz with
other instrumentation extending yet further.
Operating between the roll-off point of the
high frequency unit of your existing loudspeakers and 54 kHz, the SuperTweeter will
accurately reproduce the leading edge of
individual notes allowing the listener to experience the entire bandwidth information of
Extending the frequency response by two
octaves, corrects time and phase response
within the bandwidth of normal human
hearing. Taking these acoustical phase anomalies beyond the range of human hearing
adds realism to the soundstage by improving
imaging and placement of instruments. The
SuperTweeter provides an increased immediacy, airiness and impact - making music
sound more natural and true to life.
With the universal nature of the crossover
design the SuperTweeter concept has been
extended to match the majority of quality
loudspeakers, whether they are from Tannoy
or from other manufacturers. Adjustments
are provided for crossover frequency and sensitivity level to allow system matching.
Discrete drivers, widely used in loudspeaker
design will benefit greatly from the addition
of a SuperTweeter. The spatial imaging and
detail accuracy will be enhanced without the
impression that another information source
has been added—such is the integration of
the SuperTweeter into the system.
The ST50 is constructed from solid aluminum die-castings coated with a soft feel, nonreflecting finish. Not only are they designed to visually blend in with all types of speakers,
but they also provide an instant acoustic upgrade that is unavailable in any other way.
The ST100 comes in solid black ash and with a Performance Platform. Includes specific
crossover and frequency control settings suited to all types of speakers, regardless of manufacturer. In addition the ST100 is optimized for use with older Tannoy Dual Concentric
models, many going back over 40 years to the original 15˝ Monitor Red derivatives.
High stiffness titanium dome minimizes
effects of dome break-up and extends
frequency response.
Neodymium magnet system also extends
frequency response by minimizing eddy
current losses in voice coil.
Non-inductive resistors to avoid losses associated with normal wire wound types.
Copper clad aluminum voice coil on aluminum former for high power handling.
High quality polypropylene film capacitors,
selected for high frequency use.
Provision for driver magnet system earthing, to avoid interference and information
masking caused by radio interference.

Custom-designed 8-inch woofer and 1-inch
titanium-dome tweeter feature advanced
magnetic structures that achieve exceptionally low distortion.
Tweeter operates in conjunction with a
waveguide horn that achieves broad, uniform high-frequency dispersion for optimum balance regardless of listening position. Advanced driver and enclosure design
also ensures smooth, uniform dispersion
across the system's full reproduction range.
120-watt power amplifier for the low/mid
driver and a 60-watt power amplifier for the
tweeter (total power of 180 watts).
Building the amplifiers into the speaker cabinet allows for the best possible damping, for
tight, controlled bass and fast transient
response for accurate high frequency reproduction. The overall result is exceptionally
smooth, natural response over the crossover
range with an absolute minimum of distortion at all frequencies.
3-position LOW (0, -1.5, -3 dB at 50 Hz)
and 3-position HIGH (+1.5, 0, -1.5dB at 10
kHz) frequency TRIM switches enable
adjustment of the bass and treble, letting
you optimize system response in a wide
range of acoustic environments.
Balanced XLR input for compatibility with
professional equipment. Also allows the
speakers to be placed at the end of long
cable runs without being susceptible to hum
and induced noise.

SW10 Powered Subwoofer
If you need the kind of bass response normally associated
with a large speaker system, without giving up the
compact convenience and positioning ease of the
MSP10 Studio, simply add an SW10 Subwoofer for
solid, accurate bass response down to well below the
audible limit. The SW10 features a long-stroke 10˝
woofer which achieves exceptionally smooth,
low-frequency reproduction, while a built-in amplifier
delivers 180-watts of power. A variable low pass filter
(40 to 120 Hz) makes it easy to achieve optimum
crossover with just about any main speaker system, and
a built-in phase switch allows instantaneous phase
reversal without having to modify cables or connections.
The SW10 features three balanced XLR-type inputs and
outputs (the outputs feed the audio signal through to
the main speakers) for direct connection to professional equipment. Finally, heavy wood
construction ensures that the engineer hears the audio signal, not the cabinet.

Volume levels can be adjusted for proper balance between all three
sources using the Input 1, Input 2, and Master Volume Level controls
