These biamped speakers can be adjusted into the acoustic space, an important feature not usually found in a small, reasonably priced studio monitor. There is no comparison between the E5 2-Way Active Studio Monitor and cheap computer speakers or a home stereo system. The compact size and affordable price tag make this a studio monitor option for any artist. The Eris E5 takes up just 7 x 10.24 x 7.68" and weighs just 10.2 pounds. The small stature means it is pretty portable for packing up and switching rooms or music types.
There are several different control adjustments for the active artist. Since there are so many genres of music now, there need to be adjustments for the music and room. The first adjustment is the gain, which affects the signal level before the amp. The next adjustment is the Acoustic tuning section, with high, middle and low cutoff to more finely adjust the sound you want to hear. Another adjustment is the acoustic space switch that is a low shelving filter to compensate for a boundary bass boost.
PreSonus Temblor T8
To hear what's really going on at the bottom of your mixes, you need a subwoofer that speaks the truth. The Temblor T8 from PreSonus lets you take charge of the low-frequency foundation of your mix with a combination of quality components and design, plenty of inputs and outputs, and extensive user controls not normally available in this price range.
- 8-inch, downward-firing, glass-composite low-frequency transducer
- Round, rear-firing, bass-reflex acoustic port
- Input gain control (-30 dB to +6 dB, continuously variable)
- Continuously variable lowpass filter (50 Hz to 130 Hz)
- Built-in crossover
- Switchable highpass filter removes frequency content below 80 Hz from the full-range signal sent from the Temblor outputs to the main monitors
- 200 watt, Class AB amplification
- Left and right, balanced 1/4 inch TRS and unbalanced RCA main inputs
- Left and right, balanced 1/4 inch TRS and unbalanced RCA outputs
An ideal companion to Eris and Sceptre active reference monitors and Ceres BT-series active speakers, Temblor-series subwoofers complement full-range monitors without overshadowing them, extending the reach of your full-range system's low end with a musical and natural approach.
Powerful and musical, Temblor features high-quality components and design that enable it to deliver fast and accurate transient response, extending low frequencies without a hint of 'tubbiness' or overshoot.
Suitable for personal studios, gaming, audiophiles, and home theaters, the T8 uses a downward-firing, 8-inch glass-composite driver with high-density rubber surround and a round, rear-firing bass-reflex acoustic port. Its 200W Class AB amplifier (100W RMS) delivers up to 104 dB SPL, with a frequency response of 30 Hz to 300 Hz.
The Temblor's extensive user controls include input gain (-30 dB to +6 dB, continuously variable) and a continuously variable lowpass filter (50 Hz to 130 Hz) that let you create a seamless crossover transition between your full-range studio monitors and subwoofer for a more accurate listening environment.
A switchable highpass filter removes frequency content below 80 Hz from the full-range signal sent from the Temblor's outputs to the main monitors, avoiding destructive cancellation and reinforcement in the subwoofer's upper range.
The result is a subwoofer that can be adjusted to perfectly complement not only the Sceptre, Eris, and Ceres BT active studio monitors but virtually any studio monitor.
Versatile I/O works with any setup
No other subwoofer anywhere close to the Temblor's price range offers a comparable selection of inputs and outputs.
T8 Ins and Outs
The T8 provides two sets of inputs: left and right, balanced 1/4 inch TRS and unbalanced RCA main inputs. This enables it to pair well with PreSonus' Ceres BT-series active speakers and home-stereo speakers, as well as personal-studio systems.
Similarly, the T8 offers left and right balanced 1/4 inch TRS and unbalanced RCA pass-through outputs for connecting satellite speakers. If you are using your subwoofer with a home stereo or home theater system or a smaller studio system that does not require XLRs or two subwoofers, consider the T8.
