The single M3-8 3-Way Active Studio Monitor from M-Audio is designed to bring your mixes to the next level utilizing three individual class A/B amplifiers; high-quality low-, mid-, and high-frequency drivers; and a precision-designed cabinet and baffle. Whether you’re mixing a dynamic 100-piece full orchestra, a full-throttle rock band, or high-energy electronic music, this monitor enables you to make confident and precise adjustments to your recordings.

It is built with an 8″ woven Kevlar low-frequency woofer, a 5″ woven Kevlar midrange driver, and a 1″ silk dome tweeter with an integrated waveguide. There are XLR and 1/4″ balanced inputs and a RCA unbalanced input on the rear panel. In addition, there is a 3-band EQ with bypass and a switchable low-cut filter also on the rear panel.

The M3-8 monitor delivers three-way sound with midrange detail, higher power-handling, and broader sound coverage – from the same size cabinet as a standard two-way monitor.

In-Line MF/HF Design
The midrange and tweeter are mounted in-line with each other at precisely the same point in space. This means the sound of the two drivers (midrange and treble) reaches your ears at the same time

Kevlar Low and Mid-Frequency Drivers
Kevlar is used in both the M3-8’s 8″ woofer and the 5″ midrange, giving those units fast transient attack, sensitivity, and resistance to cone flexing

Silk Dome Tweeter with Ferro-Fluid Cooling
The 1″ woven silk dome tweeter uses Ferro-fluid voice coil cooling for added reliability and delivers no harshness or listening fatigue

Custom Waveguide
The tweeter is mounted in an integrated waveguide. It focuses and directs the treble energy into the listening field and ensures a solid and stable sonic image, which minimizes random acoustic scatter that distracts from the recording’s playback

Precision-Designed Baffle and Cabinet
The baffle is chamfered at the top edges to add in dispersion and reduce edge diffraction. The cabinet’s internal bracing provides a solid platform for the drivers to launch their sound, and the port has been calibrated for the optimum bass response

Three Individual Class A/B Amplifiers
Three individual internal amplifiers provide power to each of the three speaker elements. They are tailored to the drivers and are matched for smooth operation and system management. A total of 220 watts of Class A/B amplification empowers the M3-8 with ample headroom for even the loudest mixes
