Studiospares Active Nearfield Monitors (Sold as a Mirrored Pair)
The same speaker as the best selling Studiospares SN10 passive monitors but with an Aktivate 85 powering unit attached to the back; giving you a pair of powered SN10A monitors.
The SN10 is inspired by the legendary NS10 which became a standard within the studio industry, this model addresses the two improvements that studios thought appropriate, namely an extended bass response and the need for more output.
The SN10A incorporates an 8 inch driver not a 6.5 inch. It has a massive magnet which together with the increased size uprates the power to 80 watts RMS (8 ohms). The HF output is handled by a 1 inch soft domed tweeter driven by the crossover which operates at 3.2kHz.
The cabinet is constructed from 19mm MDF and veneered in black.
The front grille is removable.
The sound is punchy and very close to the familiar NS10s. The stereo imagery is excellent and the top end is smooth.
Should users manage to fry either of the speakers, it`s nice to know that replacements are available (LF driver 248010 and tweeter 248020).
