M-AUDIO ENHANCES THE BEST-SELLING BX MONITOR LINE WITH NEW BX CARBON SERIES
With a new look and the most accurate imaging ever offered in the BX line, the BX Carbon Series brings musicians serious mixing capability in three new models.

Cumberland, R.I. (January 22, 2014) – Building upon the acclaimed history of the best-selling BX line of studio monitors, M-Audio now announces the BX Carbon Series, which feature optimized Class AB amplifiers and offer flatter response for truer and more accurate monitoring. The BX Carbon Series includes three models: BX8 Carbon, BX6 Carbon, and BX5 Carbon, which include eight-inch, six-inch, and five-inch woofers, respectively.

“The tweeter’s waveguide has also been enhanced for superior imaging and has been tailored to the new, superior frequency response curve,” said JC Sutherland, M-Audio Product Manager. “That translates into a wider mix position—both the frequencies and the stereo information are translated reliably, which is of utmost importance given the many ways musicians use studio monitors. It’s about professional monitoring for any caliber studio.”

“With the technology available these days, studio size varies widely—from a nook in the corner of the living room to a fully finished basement—so we wanted to make sure the BX Carbon Series had all the bases covered,” said Sutherland.

In addition to the updated amplifier and waveguide, each BX Carbon monitor also features a dedicated Acoustic Space control, which offers easy low-end tailoring to different setups and environments.
