OVERVIEW

Distinctive sound with a stylish look.

Engineered for meticulous reproduction of even the most complex modern music, Akai Professional' RPM500 studio monitors easily handle layer after layer of sound, providing critical detail and the tools needed to mix with confidence. The fast Kevlar cone provides lucid low-end agility, reproducing intricate bass patterns with ease. It' authoritative sound for the craft of music production, only from Akai Professional.

Pure Bi-Amplified Power
RPM500 offers pure and accurate frequency response from 50Hz to 30kHz. The 90-watt distributed Class A/B provides the woofer and tweeter dedicated amplification”80 watts to the woofer, 40 watts to the tweeter”meaning you get ultra-efficient power and minimal distortion. The flared rear-firing bass port delivers low-frequency depth and definition.

Meticulous Control
Dedicated proximity and EQ-tailoring controls give you the ability to fine-tune the speaker in diverse mixing environments. RPM500 also features HF Trim, MF Boost, and LF Cutoff controls, which allow you to find the right balance in any environment. The included monitor isolation pad dramatically decreases structure-borne resonances, and the integrated radio frequency protection preserves signal purity. RPM500 includes XLR, balanced ¼-inch TRS, and RCA inputs.

Solid to the Core
RPM500's cabinet is painstakingly reinforced to minimize flex, combating unwanted coloration while blocking anomalies and sound artifacts from polluting your mix. The no-compromise build quality is reflected even in components you™ll never see such as the recess-mounted amp, on/off transient protection, and 14-gauge wiring to transducers. RPM500 also features a built-in output current limiter, over-temperature limiter, and subsonic filter”a full array of top-notch components that you can™t see but make all the difference in the purity that you hear.

    Comments about Akai Professional RPM500 Black Studio Monitor:

    I use these for mixing and sound shaping with my KORG Triton. Of all the money I have invested in my gear I would rate these a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. All I can say is WOW! For the money you would be hard pressed to find anything comparable to the RPM500. They actually inspire my creative juices with the sound they produce.

      Comments about Akai Professional RPM500 Black Studio Monitor:

      I am using a pair of these on my desk as general purpose computer loudspeakers. I have them connected to a Peavey USB-P USB audio interface, and they sound great! I use then fire a wide variety of things from light mixing and tracking to watching videos and just generally listening to music. These definitely perform better than I expected!
