M-Audio (Arcadia, Calif.) announced the new Studiophile BX8 reference monitors, the latest in the Studiophile Series.

The BX8s’ Acoustic Space control section allows users to optimize the monitors’ performance—no matter whether they need to go on stands, on a bookshelf or in the corners. Users can also adjust the high-frequency response to compensate for reflective surfaces like glass. The Presence control provides an automatic mid-range boost for added flexibility. The BX8s even include variable low-frequency roll-off to optimize response at crossover points when adding a subwoofer like the Studiophile SP-8S.

The BX8 specs include:

  • Two-way, near-field studio reference monitors

  • Low-frequency driver: 8-inch polypropylene curved cone

  • High-frequency driver: 1-inch natural silk dome

  • LF amplifier power: 65 watts (EIA RS-490 dynamic power)

  • HF amplifier power: 65 watts (EIA RS-490 dynamic power)

  • Crossovers: fourth-order Linkwitz Riley for smooth frequency response

  • Crossover frequency: 1.25 kHz

  • Low-frequency roll-off: sixth-order filter optimizes maximum driver excursion

  • Input Impedance: 20k ohms balanced, 10k ohms unbalanced

  • Power indicator: Power on/off indicator on front panel
