Audio hardware specialists ESI release second range of monitoring speakers for 2012…

Off the back of their higher end UniK series delivered earlier this year, ESI has announced the release of a new line of affordable studio reference monitors – the Aktiv 05 and Aktiv 08.

Replacing the nEar05 / 08 eXperience range, the Aktiv 05 and Aktiv 08 boast unparalleled punch in the low-mid frequency thanks to the top quality kevlar driver – a major improvement over the paper and polypropylene drivers used in many comparable speakers. 

Plus, thanks to a retuning of all components by German engineers, including a completely revised design of the crossover circuitry plus a higher quality silk dome tweeter, the Aktiv 05 and 08 provide honest sound at an affordable price and are perfect for use in a range of settings.

Features

  • 2-way powered speaker / active studio monitor speaker
  • 5″ or 8″ kevlar curved cone as low frequency driver
  • 1″ silk dome tweeter as HF driver
  • Aktiv 05 output power: 60W (HF 30W, LF 30W)
  • Aktiv 08 output power: 90W (HF 30W, LF 60W)
