BX5 D3


Whether you're recording, mixing, or mastering, your studio monitors are always your first source of reference. The Studio Monitors of the BX Series from M-Audio build on a legendary history. Back in 2009, they were among the best-selling monitor speakers. In the D3 generation, M-Audio continues to offer unique features for musicians and professional recording studios. Dedicated analog amplifiers deliver superior dynamics and sonic precision across the entire frequency spectrum, while the Kevlar cone woofers and silk domes with revised waveguide technology provide a full, defined sound.


  • Active near-field reference studio monitor with 5" Kevlar woofer
  • Industry-leading 100 watt bi-amp design
  • 1" silk dome tweeter delivers smooth and natural sound
  • New, optimized waveguide for precise sound reproduction
  • Ultra-wide frequency response 52 - 35,000 Hz
  • "Acoustic Space" control for sonic fine-tuning
  • Optimized rear bass reflex port for extended low-frequency response
  • Balanced XLR input and balanced/unbalanced 6.3 mm jack inputs for mixers, amplifiers, instruments, DJ equipment and more
  • LED on the front of the cabinet glows brightly when the speaker is placed at the ideal listening angle

With an integrated, industry-leading 100-watt Class A/B power amplifier the BX5 D3 is among the most powerful  of its class, so that there is enough headroom even for the loudest and most dynamic mix . Experience, thanks to the new optimized waveguide, a wide and extraordinary sound image for even more vibrant sound. A new room correction circuit on the rear panel now makes it possible to minimize the influence of distracting bass frequencies - from the basement to the professional studio - without compromising sound quality or stereo imaging.

High quality components

During the development of the BX5 D3 special attention was paid to first-class parts. High-quality components ensure an ultra-wide, linear frequency response with minimal distortion and lowest inherent noise. Thanks to its 5" Kevlar woofer (12.7 cm), the BX5 D3 monitor is guaranteed an extremely long life. Kevlar is a particularly suitable material for speaker cones due to its strength and temperature resistance. The tweeter diaphragm is made of real silk, which gives them a smooth sound - quite the opposite of many metal diaphragms in other monitors, which are often of poor quality. To keep distortion to a minimum, the tweeter is completely separated from the rest of the cabinet, providing balanced frequency response up to 22 kHz.
The integrated power amplifier works according to the biamping concept and amplifies tweeters and woofers separately. In conjunction with a finely tuned crossover, this guarantees that only the frequencies to be optimally reproduced are sent in both the high and low frequency ranges. The deep frequency separation at 2000 Hz ensures broadband, almost distortion-free signal delivery within the critical midrange frequencies.
As a result, with the BX5 D3 you get sonic precision even with complex sounds across the entire frequency spectrum.

Designed for professionals - and for beginners

Countless professionals use M-Audio studio monitors to produce and mix - creating the music and sound we hear every day. With the same design philosophy and technology now everyone can live out their passion for great sound - the BX D3 Series makes it possible. With the BX5 D3 you know exactly what's going on in your mix, so you can better decide what to send to various other systems - whether MP3 headphones, car stereo, or hi-fi.
