Fostex PM641
The PM641 is a three-way monitor from Fostex featuring a 6.5-inch woofer, 4-inch midrange and a 3/4-inch tweeter driven by a 50W, 18W and 18W independent amplifier. A built-in channel divider provides ideally overlapped frequency crossovers for smoothest connections between the drivers. The midrange and tweeter are positioned symmetrically on the Left and Right to minimize the physical height of the enclosure boxes as well as to minimize the effect of diffraction.

Genelec 1038B
The Genelec 1038B is a three-way active monitoring system including loudspeaker drivers, speaker enclosure, multiple power amplifiers and active, low signal level crossovers. The 1038B is designed to perform well both as a free-standing monitor and flush mounted into the control room wall. The unique Directivity Control Waveguide Technology provides excellent stereo imaging and frequency balance even in difficult acoustic environments. Versatile crossover controls allow for precise matching of the speaker system to different acoustic conditions. The system can be used both in vertical and horizontal orientation by simply rotating the DCW unit.

Frequency response is stated at 28 Hz-18 kHz, ±2dB. The free standing, two-rackspace amplifier takes both analog and digital (AES) inputs and swallows a beefy 12 amps.

JBL LSR4326P
The LSR4326P two-way system from JBL features a 6.25-inch woofer and a 1-inch tweeter powered by 150-watt and 70-watt amplifiers. The 4326P features Room Mode Correction, JBL’s exclusive technology that automatically analyzes and corrects the response of each speaker in the room for absolute accuracy at the mix position. The magnetically shielded transducers minimize interference when used in close proximity to video monitors, and the reinforced enclosure and convenient mounting points make for easy installation.
