Excerpt: These monitors are abit excitable in the lower end frequencies and plugging up the bass ports overheats the units. There are no Eq settings on the back of the units, only a volume gain knob which is also very sensitive and is hard to be sure if you have set them both up evenly.
Excerpt: I bought a pair of these for my music room as I needed a pair of active monitors for my home studio. Good reference speakers are essential for any home studio and these had got some good reviews. I was not disappointed.
A great product from Alesis, you wont find a better pair in this price range.

Excerpt: I have been working in the audio industry for around seven years now and have been lucky enough to try out various monitors. I first tested these monitors at a local studio while testing a Korg Triton, i used these monitors in conjuction with the the Alesis IO2 USB audio interface.
A very well balanced speaker perfect for any home studio

Excerpt: I have been working with audio editing for around 5 years now, when i started i began with a pair of basic edirol monitors, despite being classed as monitors these were actually just 'better sounding hi-fi speakers' so as i began to work on more serious projects and reading about how a studio works...
Excerpt: I bought these to use while practicing DJing, but to be honest they are the best all round method of "noise production" I have ever used. Superb as monitors with excellent sound quality, but just as good as powered speakers for small parties etc.
Excerpt: Vorgeschichte =========== Als ich meinen Rechner vor 2 1/2 Jahren erstand, kaufte ich ein Paar Miniboxen für sage und schreibe 6 Euro 95 mit. Der Sound war natürlich unterirdisch. Wie fleißige Leser meiner Berichte wissen, beschäftige ich mich gerne mit Musik und sonem Zeugs.
Pros: klares, transparentes Klangbild
Cons: Platzbedarf größer als bei normalen PC - Lautsprechern
