Fluid Audio F5 Powered Studio Monitors

While it is often referred to as a "budget" monitor, the F5 brings a lot of technology and value to the table. The amplifier rear panel has not only XLR and TRS inputs for more professional applications, it also includes an RCA input for more "consumer friendly" applications. The amplifier has a generous heat sink for long mixing sessions. Most monitors have their amp heat sinks inside the cabinet where all the heat is generated and cannot escape. The F5 amplifier ICs are mounted directly to the heat sink, so heat can transmit harmlessly away from the drivers and internal circuitry. The amp also has something no other monitor in its class can boast -- a standby circuit that shuts down the amp after 20 minutes of non-use.

While the amplifier is extremely important, all of the sound radiates from the front baffle, where the drivers and port are mounted. The woofer uses a paper pulp composite cone, which has a curve-linear geometry and is mounted to a well damped butyl rubber surround. All this contributes to a very well controlled woofer response that integrates seamlessly with the tweeter.

The tweeter itself is a treated silk material, which means its very light, very fast and provides just the right amount of articulation and "air" to high frequencies. The tweeter is mounted in a custom designed wave guide that is a perfect balance between optimizing the low end response of the device, and a great off-axis response in the near field.

The well reinforced MDF cabinet minimizes resonances, and the front mounted bass-reflex port allows the bass energy to radiate directly towards the listener. And unlike many other monitors in its class, there is a volume control on the front baffle for easy access.

All of these features come together to create a great sounding yet transparent listening and mixing experience...at a great price.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Fluid Audio F5 Monitors"
Overall: These speakers sound great and have a much flatter response when compared to the Mackies I've been using. they seem very well built. durable and fairly heavy. Really nice to mix with in close proximity. The one thing I don\t know is how long they last, they are new so we will see as time goes by. As of right now I would recommend them for sure and I would by another pair is these were stolen.
Style of Music: Just about every style. I'm not picky... my website www dot joewwilson dot com if zZounds allows this link go and listen to my m
