M-Audio M3-8 8" Three-Way Active Studio Monitor

The M3-8 studio monitor from M-Audio is a state-of-the-art studio monitor that includes a sophisticated, advanced design that combines the power, coverage, and clarity you need to take your mixes to the next level. Now you can savor the improved fidelity, enhanced imaging, and super-wide sweet spot of this exceptional 3-way studio monitor as you mix your sessions and lay down tracks. You can track and mix with the enhanced accuracy and superior imaging that only a 3-way monitor can provide. With their efficient inline design, the space-saving M3-8 Studio Reference Monitors provide truly spectacular 3-way sound while occupying the same space as a standard 2-way monitor.

Its efficient design includes mid- and high-frequency drivers that are mounted inline. By producing sound along the same focal plane, the M3-8 delivers improved time-alignment for fatigue-free listening. Lightweight woven Kevlar endows both the 8" low-frequency and 5" mid-range drivers with strength and dependability. The 1" silk dome tweeter design features waveguides which provide increased clarity. In addition to the attractive real wood baffle, the cabinet provides tuned-bass porting and optimized internal bracing for sound reproduction at the highest levels of fidelity.

Three individual amplifiers provide power to each of the 3 speaker elements. A total of 220 Watts of Class A/B amplification powers the M3-8 with more than enough headroom for even the loudest mixes. Its finely-tuned crossovers bring rich tonality across the entire frequency range. Its powerful 3-band EQ—and a switchable low-cut filter—enable you to fashion the sound to match your listening environment. Pinhole-mounted blue LEDs offer an easy-to-use visual aide for ideal placement of the speaker. All this results in a remarkable monitor that's able to bring high performance to the most critical of listening environments.
