M3-8 3-way studio reference monitor by M-Audio

M-Audio M3-8 Studiomonitor
M-Audio adds the 3-way M3-8 studio reference monitor to its line of studio monitors. M3-8 is compact yet delivers audio with dedicated low-, mid-, and high-frequency drivers, each with its own dedicated amplifier.
“They’re meant to stand out both visually and acoustically,” said JC Sutherland, Product Manager, M-Audio. “One of the biggest upsides to having a three-way design is accuracy in the lower midrange 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.”
M3-8’s high- and mid-frequency drivers are coaxial, with the mid surrounding the high, allowing for a compact standard-size monitor that offers rich audio detail and a wide “sweet spot” for accurate mixing. The inline design provides three-way sound in the same space as a standard two-way monitor with the high- and mid-frequency drivers delivering sound along the same focal plane.
“Because of the coaxial design, we're offering a three-way speaker in the same footprint as a two-way with all of the benefits of having time aligned mid and high drivers,” said Sutherland. “Having a dedicated driver for mid-range makes a huge difference when mixing.”
