Studiospares Seiwin 5A Studio Monitors + Monitor Pads
Seiwin 5A Studio Monitors
This active nearfield monitor looks good, sounds good and even feels good. To maintain good low-frequency efficiency, the acoustic principle is bass reflex with a rear-facing port. The cabinet construction is solid MDF 18mm thick which is Black veneered for an appealing finish. The magnetically shielded drivers were selected for quality, not price. The 5" bass driver has a mineral-filled polypropylene cone with a high-temperature voice coil and damped rubber surround. Such free movement allows the driver to move substantial amounts of air without distortion.
The volume controls are rear panel mounted together with the On/off switch and mains input socket. An LED above the bass driver indicates when power is on. Each speaker is totally self-contained. The overall sound is superb, partly due to the quality of the drivers and partly due to the matching of the amps to the speakers and cabinet. These are not being sold via a dealer network and are imported by the container load so pricing is very very competitive.
Studiospares Monitor Pads
Keep the sound coming from the speakers, not the surface they are standing on. Everything that can vibrate will colour the sound and that includes the surface that the monitors are mounted on. The Studiospares monitor pads decouple the energy from the supporting surface which in turn helps to give a more accurate monitoring environment. Suitable for speakers up to 20kg. Dimensions of the supporting area are 280mm long x 100mm wide x 25mm thick. Sold as a pack of 4 pads which is enough to isolate one pair of monitors.
