M-Audio BX-D3 Studio Monitor

The BX-D3 is the sequel of M-Audio BX-D2 series, and comes in 2 sizes, the BX5-D3 (100 watts (60 LF, 40 HF), 5" Kevlar woofer, 1" tweeter, 52-35kHz freq. response), and the BX8-D3 (150 watts (80 LF, 70 HF), 8" Kevlar woofer, 1.25" tweeter, 37Hz – 22kHz freq.response). The new improvement also including Class A/B amps, new computer-optimized tweeter waveguide for precise imaging and acoustic space control to fine-tune low-end response to your room.

Why You Need a Monitor

A studio monitor is no ordinary loudspeaker. Unlike a conventional speaker, a true monitor must be unerringly accurate, with a flat frequency response and vanishingly low distortion. It has to tell you, the music producer— dependably and unquestionably—exactly what is or is not in your recording. In a studio-grade monitor speaker, there is no place for the usual list of speaker colorations and limitations prevalent in conventional loudspeakers. Response peaks\dips, uneven polar response, high THD, nasal midrange, bloated mid-bass, and crossover-induced phase incoherence do nothing but undermine the confidence demanded for superior mix performance.

Monitor Performance Starts with Driver Excellence

A monitor’s drivers are the heart and soul of its performance. Driving the low-end and midrange, BX5-D3’s 5-inch and BX8-D3’s 8-inch military-grade Kevlar® woofers are rigid and lightweight, delivering outstanding transient response whist negating unwanted “cone breakup.” BX- D3 treated silk dome tweeter provides the perfect combination of low mass and the absence of audible resonances that plague conventional tweeters. Together, the BX drivers deliver critical detail, nuance and dynamic accuracy, so your mixes have the veracity and transparency you demand.

More Than Just an Enclosure

With M-Audio’s BX-D3, every detail has been meticulously engineered with one goal in mind – to facilitate the freedom to mix with confidence. BX-D3 monitors have a rear- mounted bass port, meticulously engineered to the exact length and diameter. The result? Deep, defined bass response with maximum bass extension and resolution. When combined with a smoothly-flared port, BX-D3 monitors markedly reduce the audibly-intrusive air turbulence that results when bass is played back at high sound pressure levels (SPLs). BX-D3’s tweeter is mounted in a custom waveguide for reliably accurate dispersion that eliminates unwanted high-frequency “scatter,” whilst ensuring a soundstage that remains consistently wide and stable. For seamless setup and easy-location of the optimum listening position, the BX-D3’s front-mounted positioning LED shines brightly when you’re located in the perfect listening spot, for uncompromisingly accurate and reliable critical evaluations. Finally, BX-D3’s iconic design on the front panel—M-Audio’s famous “keyhole” shape—is more than just an attractive look: This special “fastenerless” design ensures so there are no driver attachment screw heads to interfere with the sound coming from our drivers.

High-Current, High Headroom Class A/B Bi-Amplified Power

Efficient and accurate: Driving the BX-D3 monitors are two Class A/B internal amplifiers that power the woofer and tweeter separately – each optimised for the specific frequency range it handles and engineered to complement the characteristics of its companion driver. A precision-tuned crossover guarantees each driver only handles the frequencies that it produces most efficiently for a sound that is cohesive across the entire frequency spectrum. Play louder with less audible distortion: The BX-D3 bi-amplified design is a far more efficient and accurate way to power a loudspeaker than using a single full-range amplifier to drive multiple driver elements.

Tailor-Made Sound

At M-Audio, we understand no two listening spaces are the same. Therefore, the BX- D3 monitors custom tailors your sound to your environment, so you will always experience sonically-true, reassuringly-accurate sound reproduction. Negate problematic bass frequencies and limit the impact of nuisance standing waves thanks to BX-D3’s special Acoustic Space control for precise adjustment of BX-D3’s sound output in line with your studio space.

Connectivity Covered

Whatever your needs, the BX-D3 Studio monitors guarantee to assimilate into your existing setup with ease. Combining conveniently-located, rear-mounted XLR and 1/4- inch balanced inputs, BX-D3 connects to virtually all studio equipment including audio interfaces, mixers, DJ gear and more.

It’s Far More Than The Sum of Its Parts

M-Audio’s BX-D3 monitors excel in every way, the rightful successor to the original studio icon. Fusing superb drivers, meticulously engineered enclosures, great-sounding amplifiers, versatile control options and standardized connection facilities, BX-D3 delivers sound quality you can trust.
