OVERVIEW

6" Three-way monitors with true tri-amp.

The PM6.4.1 is the very first 3-way monitor speaker from Fostex consisting of 6" woofer, 4" midrange and 3/4" tweeter. Powered by a 60W, 18W and 18W independent amplifier for wider frequency range reproduction - a first for a Fostex PM-series monitor.

It features a 6" woofer, 4" midrange and 3/4" tweeter driven by 60W, 18W and 18W independent power amplifier respectively. The built-in channel divider provides ideally overlapped frequency crossovers for smoothest connections between the drivers. The midrange and tweeter are positioned symmetrically on the Left and Right to minimize the physical height of the enclosure boxes as well as to minimize the affect of diffraction. The woofer and the midrange are housed in an individual chamber respectively inside the enclosure box to have little interference between the drivers.

3-step level adjustments are provided for HIGH at +1/0/-1dB and LOW at +3/0/-3dB. The diaphragm for the woofer and the midrange is highly rigid with moderate internal loss being made of highly elastic Kevlar papered by Fostex's original engineering to reproduce any type of input source. The tweeter diaphragm is UFLC (Urethane Film Laminated Cloth) soft dome type to reproduce any types of high frequencies keeping its own transparency.

FEATURES
  • 60W, 18W and 18W independent power amplifiers
  • Soft dome tweeter
  • 4" mid-range driver
  • 6" low frequency woofer
  • 3-Step level adjustments are provided for HIGH at +1/0/-1dB and LOW at +3/0/-3dB
  • 2 x Inputs: TRS balanced and XLR balanced

Comments about Fostex PM6.4.1 6" 3-Way Studio Montior (Pair):

Tweeter is noisy when the internal amp is turned up all the way. Noise has no relation to input source. Fostex manual says, "Set the gain of both monitors at MEDIUM setting and slowly bring up the gain of the console." If you do this the noise floor is quite acceptable.

I like the tri-amped design. The midrange speaker makes a big difference in quality. I also own a Tapco S-8 biamped speaker with an 8" woofer and that setup can easily go down to 40hz (low E on bass) and be turned up all the way while whisper quiet.

These speakers are smaller and unique in design. i got a great deal on a restock.

Comments about Fostex PM6.4.1 6" 3-Way Studio Montior (Pair):

These made an immediate impact upon my home recordings. In my experience, after 30+ years of recording, they have the best sound reproduction I have ever heard.

I got them as restock and can't see that they had ever been opened before. I won't worry about buying restock items from MF again.

          Comments about Fostex PM6.4.1 6" 3-Way Studio Montior (Pair):

          These monitors work just as described. I use them mainly for narrating audio books. They produce a true, flat sound that lets me to know exactly how I will be heard by the listener. They have plenty of power--far more than I'll ever need for my home studio environment.

          I bought a pair of speaker stands so that I could place the monitors off my equipment desk. I also bought some inexpensive, flexible, mesh tubing (for insulation) and threaded the speaker cable through it. This drastically reduced interference from all the power supplies and power cords I have in close proximity to the behind my recording desk.

          I bought these monitors used but in excellent condition, so I saved quite a bit of money. But these speakers were very economically priced at Musician's Friend from the get go. No matter whether you buy them used or new, you're going to be very satisfied.

            That is the ONLY brand that gives 6 inch 3-way studio monitor! Very clear sound, the middle range speaker helps a lot!! Deep and tight specific bass,clear middle & crystal high frequency. Very easy to make a right master balance. From this range of price this is the best solution for a small control room. You wont regret.

            These things sound great. Nice and flat. Even though the power switch is in a tough spot, I still gave them 5 stars just because they sound really nice!

              I haven't even taken the monitors out of the box, but my sons and daughter-in-law were here (they are the Gregory Brothers) and I offered them these monitors and they were pleased with what they saw. They will be the folks that give these a "run for their money!" I have been pleased by all my purchases from Musician's Friend (and my children have too since I've given them a fair amount of what I've bought). Thank you.

                Comments about Fostex PM6.4.1 6" 3-Way Studio Montior (Pair):

                I have long be fascinated by the 3 speaker studio monitor, but had neither the space nor the budget for a professional 3 speaker powered studio monitor. This Fostex provides me with experience with this type of monitor at an affordable price. I have the 6 inch variant of this product line. The high and mid frequencies are provided with extraordinary detail. The low frequencies are also well represented as best I can tell, but do not expect the performance of an 8 inch woofer or subwoofer from these. As best I can tell, they render neutral and correlate well with my experience with their predecessor, the Mackie HR824 which I have worked with for many years.

                The speakers appear to be very well made and well engineered. I wish that they had a sleep mode, like the Mackies had, but they do not.

                This product is no different than my experience with other Fostex products. Excellent quality for an excellent price.
