M-Audio M3-6 and M3-8 Three-Way Studio Monitor

3-Way Studio Monitor

A three-way active studio monitor from M-Audio, the M3-6 is designed to play louder, handle more power, and provide consistent sound coverage. Built with a 6-inch woven Kevlar low-frequency driver, a 5-inch woven Kevlar mid-frequency driver, and a 1-inch silk dome tweeter with integrated waveguide, the M3-6 covers a wide frequency response range of 40 hertz to 22 kilohertz.

Note: At checkout, you’ll have the option to upgrade to the M3-8 model (+ $50), which features an 8-inch low-frequency driver, more powerful output, and a slightly larger footprint. For either option, the price reflects the cost of one monitor.

Design & Features

Inside the wood cabinet, the mid-range driver and tweeter are mounted in line with one other to deliver clear, detailed sound while eliminating time-arrival distortion. Each monitor is equipped with three individual internal amplifiers to offer 160 watts of power in the case of the M3-6, or 220 watts of power in the case of the M3-8. Ideal for the seasoned engineer, both models excel at video and film mixing, as well as music recording.
