With a distinctive black and red finish, both Akai RPM500 and RPM800 feature a Class A/B amplifier, a Kevlar cone woofer and silk-dome tweeter, all hosted into a shielded and reinforced enclosure designed to minimize flex, with a rear-firing bass port. An isolation pad is also included.
The monitors include HF Trim, Mid-Range Boost and LF Cutoff controls, as well as XLR, balanced 1/4' TRS and RCA inputs.
Each speaker is also provided with current limiter, over-temperature limiter and subsonic filter.
The RPM500 features a 5.25" woofer and provides 90W of power (50W LF + 40W HF). Frequency range is 50Hz - 30kHz (±3dB).
The RPM800 provides 120W of power and uses an 8" woofer. Frequency response announced is 38Hz - 30kHz.
