The US company Sterling Audio is now shipping its latest speakers – MX Black Series, which are built for optimal frequency dispersion.
The MX Black Series features multi-fibre, low-frequency cone drivers that are engineered to minimise sonic artefacts and artificial resonance. The silk-dome tweeters are powered by neodymium magnets which aim for a natural frequency response. The series includes three models: the MX8 Black, which features an 8-inch low-frequency driver and 1-inch tweeter; the MX5 Black, with a 5-inch woofer and 1-inch tweeter; and the MX3 Black, with 3-inch woofers and ¾-inch tweeters.
All MX Black Series models feature variable high-pass (+2, 0, or -2 dB) and low-pass (-3, 0, or +3 dB) filters that enables the user to customise their tune to monitors. The MX8 and MX5 provide balanced XLR, balanced ¼-inch TRS, and unbalanced RCA inputs; the MX3 offers unbalanced RCA inputs. All models employ studio-grade internal components and protective circuitry.
MX Black Series monitors are powered by Class A/B power amps. The MX8’s 125W power amp and 8-inch woofer enable it to deliver a frequency response ranging from 37 Hz to 22 kHz. The compact MX 5 is driven by 70 watts of Class A/B power and ranges from 42 Hz to 22 kHz. The portable MX3 delivers a frequency response of 55 Hz to 22 kHz and features a 40W power amp.
