M-Audio release the very affordable BX3 and BX4 monitor speakers

M-Audio is building on the success of its BX series with the release of the BX3 and BX4 models. The new monitors are very compact and are built for multi-purpose use, whether it’s making or listening to music, gaming, watching movies or live streaming. They are perfect for ticking every box whilst we live in this crazy lockdown (stay at home) world.

The BX3 and BX4 look pretty much the same, with the only difference being the size of the black kevlar low-frequency drivers. The M-Audio BX3 features a 3.5-inch driver, while the BX4’s driver is 4.5-inch, with both featuring a computer-optimised 1-inch natural silk dome tweeters to project your audio across a frequency range of 69Hz–22kHz. An acoustically-inert MDF cabinet with a bass-reflex design gives you a deep sound, despite the size of the M-Audio monitors.

The BX3 and BX4 can be fine-tuned via high and low EQ dials on the rear panel. There is also a left/right active speaker position that dictates which speaker is on the left or right side. The BX monitors can accommodate a wide range of audio sources whether its a mixer, audio interface or a mobile phone.

M-Audio’s BX3 and BX4 are ideal those just starting out in music production, especially given that it comes with a lite version of Pro Tools which is a very welcome collaboration.

At just £85 for the BX3 and £100 for the BX4, they are an absolute bargain, especially in the current climate. Find out more about the BX3 and BX4 here.
