      Powered desktop studio speakers for project studios, video playback, gaming and mobile devices.

      While it’s true that the Alesis Elevate 3 monitors are not designed to be a main set of speakers in major recording and prost production facilities, they are however an excellent and affordable decision for your home computer desktop or small project-based studio. Alesis Elevate 3 monitors come as a stereo-matched pair to provide a clear, full sound for your multimedia content and more. Built using technology adopted from Alesis’ award-winning Monitor One and M1 Active professional studio monitors, Elevate 3 Studio Monitors are the perfect way to upgrade your computer or mobile device experience. Each speaker is housed in a handmade, custom wood cabinet that helps provide natural bass and feature an elliptical waveguide with Directional Articulation technology. You'll also have the ability to increase power and bass extension by connecting an optional powered subwoofer.

      Exceptional Sound Quality
      Elevate 3 Studio Monitors contain powerful, three-inch woofers, crisp, one-inch silk-dome tweeters and dedicated bi-amplified power. Alesis engineers carefully selected and tuned these crucial components to work in concert as a single unit within the custom wood cabinet to deliver full lows, clean highs and a detailed compelling stereo image. Magnetic shielding ensures that you’ll never have to worry about placement or interference with displays, TVs and other electronic equipment. And unlike passive speakers, Elevate 3 monitors have a volume knob built right in to the front panel for easy control.

      Directional Articulation Technology
      Alesis has been creating studio monitors for nearly a quarter century. In that time, they have learned a lot about maximizing sound and sonic clarity. Elevate 3 Studio Monitors leverage Alesis’ experience in designing studio loudspeakers by employing custom-designed wood cabinets that stay natural and neutral, regardless of the frequency content or volume.

      More importantly, each Elevate 3 cabinet features an elliptical-shaped waveguide set around their high-frequency driver — a feature commonly found on premium speakers far more expensive. Surrounding the high-frequency driver, the waveguide optimizes the throw of sound. Its elliptical shape is wide horizontally, creating a wide listening “sweet spot," so you can move left or right without losing stereo image. And because its shape is narrow vertically, the waveguide reduces reflections off of your computer table, below, and the ceiling, above. This translates to clean, consistent and focused sound every time you turn on your pair of Elevate 3 Studio Monitors.

      The elliptical waveguide and carefully formed radiuses on each Elevate 3 monitor come together to form what we call Directional Articulation technology. That's a fancy way of saying you get incredible sounding speakers that won't require a second mortgage on your house.

      Convenient I/O
      An RCA stereo pair input is onboard, perfect for connecting mixers, interfaces, and virtually any other piece of audio gear. A 1/8-inch stereo connection gives you the ability to switch to headphones easily at anytime, and connecting the speakers is just as easy, requiring just one standard 1/8” cable (included). If you're frequently on the move, Elevate 3 is the speaker for you: they feature a built-in power supply so they'll work worldwide with no wall-wart power supply to lose!

      Elevate 3 Studio Monitors are designed to produce natural frequency response. But if you need a little more low-end punch, a convenient bass-boost switch does the trick. And if you need even more power and low-end extension, Elevate 3 features a subwoofer output compatible with virtually any powered subwoofer.

      Features

      • Precise audio amplification for project studios, video playback, gaming and mobile devices
      • Front baffles and waveguides feature Directional Articulation technology for excellent directivity and stereo imaging
      • Elliptical waveguide creates a wide sweet spot with outstanding stereo image
      • Separate high and low frequency drivers with crossover
      • High-fidelity bi-amplification with 60-watt peak power
      • Custom wood cabinet with dense wood construction for full, warm sound

      • Magnetic shielding for desktop use next to computer monitors, displays, TVs and other electronic equipment
      • Convenient, industry-standard I/O and worldwide power options

      I just purchased these monitors and got them last week for my online radio station and, Despite what some of the negative comments say Alesis once again have NOT disappointed me in delivering an excellent product. These monitors are not designed to power a high wattage home sound system, They are for small studio applications such as my online radio station and they sound unbelievable! I was considering adding my Yamaha sub for more low end bass but, They sound great without my sub too. So if your looking to play Metallica on 10 constantly then these monitors are NOT for you but, If you are looking for compact excellent sounding monitors that wont break the bank for your studio the Alesis elevate 3 monitors will not let you down.

      I bought these for price, just as many others have I imagine. These are the smallest monitors I have encountered, but the sound is very good. I wouldn't suggest using "bass boost" as the sound gets a little muddy. The reason I can't give this a glowing review is two-parts.

      If you look at the details, the left monitor does not have its own in/out line. You must connect the 1/8" cable from R. So if you're running even a simple audio interface with 1/4" ins, you will need to buy new cables. Just remember RCA output in the back.

      Secondly, once you turn on the monitors you will hear a hiss. Adjust the volume knob past 75% and you will get a hum. Kind of annoying but I guess if you aren't listening carefully you can tune it out.

      All in all, for the price, completely worth it. Just note what you intend to use it for as this product is meant for the casual audiophile.

        In my first, more spacious home studio, I used the the Alesis M1 pair. They were perfect for what I needed then, these are perfect for what I need now. My new home studio is in a studio apartment. All of my recording, computer and entertainment gear, as well as my books occupy a closet-sized floor space with a 15' ceiling. When I'm not listening back to recorded tracks, I connect to my TV for amazing stereo sound.

        Great monitors with excellent sound. The only downfall I feel is that they aren't very loud. By that I mean you can hear them and feel a little bass, but you can't go very loud. Great for a small recording setup.

        Planning to use these for my solo theatre performance at a festival during the "quiet times" of the early afternoon. Believe it will be perfect since I don't need to compete with volume and the sound quality is adequate. The size is perfect for traveling.... Thanks Musician's Friend... knew ya'll could help me!

              Needed some new monitors after setting up a computer recording studio for song demos.
              The first pair from Musicians Friend had an issue, but MF had a new pair shipped to me within an hour after speaking with a customer service rep. WOW - who does that anymore??
              Got the new set before I could get the return to UPS and back to MF!!!
              I love these monitors. I've always been a big fan of Alesis equipment and was not disappointed with these speakers. They even make my old Korg1600 sound good!
              That aside, Musician Friend is still my "go to" source for all things music. Their customer service is simply incredible!
              I guess I could get a better deal on some equipment from a competitor, but I know that MF will stand behind their products so I see no reason to look anywhere else.

                  The box states 60 watts and I thought they'd be louder than my Lansing Altec computer speakers. The sound quality is superior but the volume before breakup is, shall we say, modest and polite. I play rock and roll for money and need to hear above the tinnitus.
