Three Way Studio Monitor

The M3-8 is a three-way active studio monitor specifically designed to play louder, handle more power, and provide wide and consistent sound coverage. Built with a 8-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 M3-8 covers a wide frequency response range of 38 Hz – 22 kHz. Three drivers, each dedicated for lows, mids and highs, grants the user unlimited possibilities.

Note: This drop's base price reflects the cost of one monitor. At check-out, you will have the option to purchase more than one.

Additional Design Features

Inside the beautiful wooden veneer cabinet, the mid range driver and tweeter are mounted in line with each other to deliver detailed and clear sound while eliminating time/arrival distortion. The M3–8 also comes with three individual internal amplifiers to offer 160 W power. Ideal for the seasoned engineer, these monitors excel in the field of video and film mixing. While well suited for music recording as well, the three-way monitor will unlock sound and ranges a two-way cannot.
