M-Audio made the BX8 D2 active monitors to provide accurate monitoring that's pleasant to listen to at a great price. You get ultra-solid bass response, an accurate midrange, and smooth, extended high frequencies. How does M-Audio do it? They use a special 8" kevlar woofer - kevlar is more rigid and responsive than paper speaker cones, so that's where the super punchy bass comes from. The BX8 D2's 1.25" silk dome tweeter rounds out the upper frequencies, while providing a sharp stereo image. Long story short, they're built smart so that you can mix better. And at this price, they're ideal for home and project studios. Give your mixes a chance to sound their best with the M-Audio BX8 D2 active monitors.
