Today M-Audio announced the availability of their new 3-way M3-8 studio reference monitor.
Featuring an innovative inline design and superior imaging, the compact M3-8 delivers an “immersive” audio experience with dedicated low-, mid-, and high-frequency drivers, each with its own dedicated amplifier.
M-Audio Product Manager, JC Sutherland, explains, “One of the biggest upsides to having a three-way design is accuracy in the lower mid-range frequencies — M3-8 has a dedicated driver for that often-muddy range, which can be too high for a woofer and too low for a tweeter to handle. M3-8′s three-way coaxial design successfully addresses that challenge.”
