Very good professional gear, solid, heavy and powerful.
Very good for beginners, amateurs like me or even for pros and home studios.
Two 2 x 75-watt amps.
Their sound is very clean and enough for me, I use them with a Yamaha MG102c mixer.
Very good stereo image, good dynamic response and precision.
Also to work in a small editing studio for beginners.
I've been using them since 2012, so it's been 2 years and 6 months that I've used these active Prodipes.
I've used other models, too: The 2x30-watt active Yamaha, from June 1995 to 2005, very good quality.
Quality and price, not expensive for pros. Price: 249 euros.
Would I buy them again? Yes.
Personally, I heard several monitors and I ended up choosing the Prodipe 50.
Aesthetically, they are very nice, which I like a lot. The fact that they are rectangular makes them easy to pile up (to make a small tower), so they don't take up too much space.
On the rear you can find three outputs for different setups and what I like about it is that when you plug something into all them, they all work, none of them overrides nor blocks any other one, like on many models.
The frequencies are more than enough, the audio quality is the same at high volumes.
That's why I bought two additional pairs so I have six of them that I can use for my music but also as a home cinema system (although they weren't conceived for that).
The Pro 5’s by Prodipe have been around for a few years now and I have had hands on experience with them on several occasions. The stereo quality is very good and the frequency range is as well. They are a very solid set of monitors. They don’t seem to get very loud though, but when mixing you’re your music you shouldn’t have the volume extremely loud. I actually got great results with this mixing my music, I like to mix my music as I make it so I can get an actual feel for how the final version will sound and they served their purpose just fine.
The sound is great and the frequency range is almost perfect. I just wish they where overall louder. Even when you turn them all the way up which you should never do. They still don’t seem to be very loud and I have used them in a pretty small room. A room that is only 10x10 and the sound still doesn’t seem to get loud.
But I guess the Pro 5’s will take care of what you will use them for and that is mixing your music. The price of them is a good price online. I have seen them cheaper in some local stores a year or two ago. I wouldn’t recommend buying them used because from what I hear the life span of them isn’t that good as time goes on and also I have heard they don’t take well to being knocked around or banged or dropped. I havent dropped mine at all and don’t plan on it but if you purchase them used you will never know what the person who had them before you did so it could be a bad investment with the rumors of life span on the Prodipe Pro 5’s.
These are my first monitor speakers. I was looking for a good value for money.
Ideal for beginners. I would still use them if I hadn't found a great deal for a pair of Focal SoloBe6...
- Application: my home studio (8 to 20 hours per week)
- My setup: MOTU 828 MKII, ACER notebook and Cubase V... I never had a single problem although I used them also to play guitar and bass.
They show a lot of fidelity to the source signal. The low-frequency response is rather fat. I noticed a lack of high frequencies but you can always adjust the response controls on the rear.
Good dynamic response
Good stereo imaging
It's a good idea to adjust the response with a spectral analyzer like the Behringer ULTRACURVE PRO DEQ2496.
Pro: front-port bass reflex system
Con: too powerful lows, lack of highs and high-mids (with all rear controls set to "0")
Good value for money for beginners
I would buy them again if my budget was low...
