PreSonus Eris E5 XT Active Studio Monitor

An upgrade to PreSonus' top-selling Eris E5, this XT model delivers deeper lows with a wider sweet spot, thanks to a larger cabinet and elliptical waveguide.

With the same robust connectivity options and powerful, articulate driver combo, the PreSonus Eris E5 XT studio monitor is a nuanced update to a lauded classic. The 1-inch silk-dome tweeter now sports a Hugh Sarvis-designed EBM waveguide, delivering a wider and more controlled sweet spot ideal for group listening and collaboration. A larger, ported enclosure extends the bass response of the 5-inch woven composite low-frequency driver without adding any mud. And of course, the acoustic tuning controls let you flatten the frequency response in accordance with your mix environment. It's Eris, remastered.

Features:

- 5-inch woven composite low-frequency transducer
- 1-inch (25.4 mm), ultra-low-mass, silk-dome, high-frequency transducer
- 100(H) x 60(V) EBM waveguide and ported enclosure
- Tuning Controls for accurate mixing contour (Level, HPF, LF Trim, HF Trim, Acoustic Space)
- 80 Watt, Class AB bi-amplification drives up to 102 dB of sound
- Balanced XLR, TRS, and unbalanced RCA inputs
- 102 dB maximum continuous SPL
- RF interference, output current limiting, over-temperature, transient, external mains fuse, and subsonic protection

I have used these with and without a subwoofer, and in both cases, they performed flawlessly. One thing to remember is how to set them up. If using these without a subwoofer, you might be inclined to run them in the "flat" setting on the back, but be careful. These speakers can blow if you run too much Bass frequencies through them. I also have the Eris 5s and I love them, but these are a bit louder and they have more low end than the E5s. They also have better dispersion of the high end. I definitely recommend these monitors for a small space and if you get a subwoofer, the Sub8 by Presonus is a great fit.
