General Features

Monitor Type
Studio monitors can be passive or active. Passive monitors require an outside amplification of the audio signal. Active monitors have a built-in amplifier to provide proper output to the speakers.
Near-Field Active
Peak Power
This is the maximum power rating of the studio monitors. For passive monitors, this is the maximum amount of wattage that the drivers are rated at. For active monitors, this is the maximum amount of wattage that the built-in amplifier sends to each driver.
55 watts
Continuous Power
This is the continuous power rating of the studio monitors. For passive monitors, this is the amount of wattage that the monitor needs to function properly. For active monitors, this is the amount of wattage that the built-in amplifier sends to each driver.
30 watts
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
60 - 20,000 Hz
Crossover Frequency
This is the frequency that the studio monitor is able to separate the audio frequencies that are being sent to the LF driver and the HF driver.
4,000 Hz
Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This spec compares the strength of the signal to the level of background noise. A higher value indicates less background noise.
101 dB
THD (Total Harmonic Distortion)
The amount of change in harmonic content of the signal as it is amplified. A lower figure indicates less change and a more accurate amp. THD below 0.10% is inaudible.
Digital Inputs
These are the types of digital inputs and interfaces that the studio monitor is able to accept.
These are the analog inputs for the studio monitor.
1/4" TRS
RCA Composite
These are all of the different controls and adjustments that can be made on the monitor.
Level Control
High Frequency Filter
Low Frequency Filter
Monitors Included
This is the total number of monitors included in the purchase. While some are sold in pairs, there are many monitors that are sold individually.

A non-shielded monitor can distort the image on a television or computer monitor, and possibly cause permanent damage.
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
Weight (Pounds)
This is the weight of the item in pounds (lbs).
14.3 lbs
Digital Audio Converter
Digital audio converters convert digital audio information into an analogue signal that can be amplified.
