m-audio bx8 construction?

Discussion in 'Recording' started by dancetheirdance, Aug 29, 2004.

  1. this also applies to any lower end monitor. has anyone ever notices how much cabinet resonance these things have? has anyone ever disassembled them and added and sort of internal bracing or dampening to the cabinets in their monitors? what about upgrading the tiny tiny gauge speaker wire inside?

    Well I have a pair of the BX8's and while I've never taken them apart, I'm happy with the over build quality of the units.

    I've never really noticed any cab resonance, but then again I've never used any high end monitors before.

    Feel free to disagree, but that's why I always thought that a good consumer mini-monitor like Paradigm Mini Monitor, PSB Alpha, Rogers or Spendor LS3/5a (based on BBC monitor design) was a bonafide alternative to most of the inexpensive near-field monitors you can buy from the "pro" manufacturers. If you have to go cheap on monitors, the consumer versions from good companies such as Tannoy, Infinity, Polk, Proac are a very viable choice.

    Things like small guage wiring and lack of dampening are very indicative of a calibre of construction that even value-oriented audiophiles would not put up with.
