The Fostex 6301Bs are a set of small 10 watt speakers that I've used in the recording studio. I didn't use these in the studio in a traditional sense for mixing or even monitoring, as they were set up as speakers in the live room for talk back purposes. So while I didn't get to use these in a traditional sense in the studio, they were still quite helpful and did a great job for what they were being used for. These monitors are quite small as they are easily movable. They've got both 1/4" and XLR connections.


I've only used the Fostex 6301B for talkback purposes, but for this application the 6301Bs did a superb job. However, I can't speak to how well they would work in a traditional studio setting if you wanted to use these for monitoring during tracking. However, I would imagine that they would be best suited as an extra set of speakers to check mixes on, rather than as a main set for any sort of use as they are simply too small for that. They also would seem to work well for simply listening to music on or for other media applications.


For such as small set of monitors, the Fostex 6301B are pretty cool little speakers. I can't say that I'd recommend them for any sort of extended studio use, but for simple jobs or for checking mixes on, they'll do fine. They definitely had a clean and full sound for the talkback application that I used them for as previously mentioned. The price isn't too expensive, but for 10 watt speakers it definitely doesn't make them the cheapest speakers on the market. Having said this, if you want a small set of monitors that actually sound pretty good, the price is actually pretty reasonable. I don't think that I've used any other monitors other than headphones made by Fostex that I can think of, but in my eyes they are definitely a trustworthy company that makes reliable gear...
