stompboxjon's review"Great sound for under 300 dollars"

M-Audio BX5 D2
The M-Audio BX5 D2 are a pair of Active 70 watt 2 way monitors, with a 5” woffer and 1” tweeters. The BX5 D2 are very affordable for the pair, you can get them both for 300 USD and they will last you a long time. This are the perfect monitors for a smaller at home set up. I used these for a few months and had them sitting on stage monitor stands.


The Sound of the BX5 D2 are very clear and clean, the bass is flat and the mids are present without being muddy. You can get a good mix with these monitors depending on how good your ear is and how well you understand them. It will take some experimenting with them to know how far you can push the bass in your mix because from my experience the bass will need to be paid close attention to in these monitors, when you do your mix and listen to it in other systems you will notice how weak the bass might be. So you will need to understand them a little better to know how far you can go with those low end frequencies without over doing it. The bass is very punchy and tight.


The BX5 D2 are well built, they are small when you take them out of the box but the sound that comes out of them is very big. The D2 monitors will also last you for a long time if you wish to keep them. The value of these monitors is great for the price. You won’t find many other monitors that will give you this sound and still be under 300 USD for the pair of them. They are worth the buy and I am happy that I chose to use these for my small laptop set up. Make sure you purchase stands for them or some sort of pads to go under them because not having something under them will effect the sound and performance of them.

M-Audio BX5 D2
100 euros less expensive than the model hs 50 yamaha

usage, listening, recording, mixing ...


they are neutral lacks nothing for me, stereo image is good, the sound is clear and precise ds treble and bass side no lack


for 1 week before I had a pair of jbl I prefer the m audio for now

bemol small volume knob on the back of each speaker is not good .... then notched this is what sucks,
I put all the time thoroughly the 2 knobs for fear of having a difference of db

M-Audio BX5 D2
I was looking for small speakers (not too much space on my desk, which is full of other stuff ...), active, because do not want to lose up to an amp.

I had heard that many of the BX8, and in terms of price, they place great compared to equivalent among competitors (which is important for a beginner mixer home studio like me)

I've used an M-Audio Profire 2626, very satisfying. Since I went on a M-Audio Firewire 410. I am less happy, but it may be only psychological


The frequency curve is not too bad until ≠ 100Hz, below is a little less, and under 50Hz is the Berezina
The stereo image seems really good (warning: this is a beginner who has not tested a lot of material that says that)

When I listen to music, I find that the whole spectrum is clean.
But curiously, when it is I who mixes, I find the bass (especially low MA) and really present too "muddy". So I tend to lower the bass level, but once past the headphones (Beyer DT770), it lacks bass.
So I think this lack of bass comes from my placement (on the desktop, 15cm from the wall. It sucks, mas I have no choice at the moment). So a tip, try to place them in height, a little further away from the wall, especially as there is a vent at the back for low


It's been 6 months since the used, and this is my first model speaker monitoring.

As mentioned above, what I like less is the same time it lacks bass, and too low

I think the price / quality ratio is very good. After that, there's no mystery, with a 5-boomer 'and less than 200 € the pair, we can not get into mastering. But for small demos, and controlling with a good headphone is nickel

And yes, I would do this choice, PCQ is especially compact I was looking for

laurent_conte's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" the monitor is cheap"

M-Audio BX5 D2
the price! I've had for a morsel of bread, and with a gift card firewire solo!?

I have a Yamaha mixing desk top, 1PC, a electribe EMX1, and a triplet kaossillator> minikp> KP3

No amp needed, each speaker has its integrated amps.


very neutral, even too much, I make dubstep, I therefore had to add a subwoofer.

On the other hand it's not bad to work like that, because we try to resortir low (audible without success), but when you replay on public speakers, this is the slap infrababasse sure :)

on the other hand I have breath, I do not know if it's because it's an opportunity or not ...


I use it since 2011

I had creative PC ... a great leap forward biensur ...

THE design is nice and the sound is actually neutral, it is the most

The breath (but it might be just mine), and lack of a subwoofer output. the least (I put the subwoofer output on the group table)

On occasion I will ransom them yes, but nine ca is a bit expensive for my budget.

Note that they are not super powerful.

M-Audio BX5 D2
5 inch low prices underpowered utliser 70 w in a home studio deal

connect on a fast track 400 c of the same mark


it can go for the lower curve are as all the speakers of this messy game highs just a tad before the mids sound hollow you get used

stereo image is stirring in a little offset against its default but these good headphones for precise sound system to complete listen and we know them I think have can mix asser corectement


few months but I had intensively tapping the krk and yam which are just above but a little hair that does not justify for me the differences of € 70
