Sterling Unveils MX Black Series Powered Studio Monitors

Sterling Audio is shipping its new MX Black Series active studio monitor speakers. The MX Black Series powered monitors are bi-amplified and built for optimal frequency dispersion, delivering clear, articulate sound within a wide “sweet spot.” The new MX Black Series speakers offer outstanding features and performance and sport a matte black finish.

MX Black Series monitors feature acoustically engineered, multi-fiber, low-frequency cone drivers that offer excellent damping to minimize sonic artifacts and unnatural resonance. Their silk-dome tweeters are powered by neodymium magnets for a smooth and natural frequency response. A rear-panel acoustic port reduces low-frequency turbulence and distortion. The series includes three models: the MX8 Black (shown at right), which features an 8-inch low-frequency driver and 1-inch tweeter; the MX5 Black, with a 5-inch woofer and 1-inch tweeter; and the MX3 Black (sold in pairs, shown above), with 3-inch woofers and ¾-inch tweeters.

All MX Black Series models feature variable high-pass (+2, 0, or -2 dB) and low-pass (-3, 0, or +3 dB) filters that enable you to custom tune your monitors to suit your listening preferences and recording environment. The MX8 and MX5 provide balanced XLR, balanced ¼-inch TRS, and unbalanced RCA inputs; the MX3 offers unbalanced RCA inputs. All models employ studio-grade internal components and protective circuitry.

MX Black Series monitors are powered by high-efficiency, low-distortion, Class A/B power amps. The top-of-the-line MX8’s 125W power amp and 8-inch woofer enable it to deliver a frequency response ranging from 37 Hz to 22 kHz. The compact MX 5 is driven by 70 watts of Class A/B power and ranges from 42 Hz to 22 kHz. The portable MX3 delivers a frequency response of 55 Hz to 22 kHz and features a 40W power amp-more than enough to deliver plenty of clean, clear sound wherever you travel.
The new Sterling MX Black Series monitors are priced at $99.99 a pair for the MX3, $119.99 each for the MX5, and $179.99 each for the MX8, and are available at GuitarCenter.com and Musiciansfriend.com. For more information, please visit www.sterlingaudio.net.
