Overview

A bi-amplified monitor built for optimal frequency dispersion.

The Sterling MX Black Series bi-amplified monitors represent the latest evolution in audio reference design, combining top sound quality with next-generation materials that meet your most demanding expectations in any professional, or project studio application. 

For smaller studios or project studios where space is at a premium, the Sterling MX5 Powered Studio Monitor delivers top-class audio quality and features in a smaller footprint. Each bi-amplified monitor is built for optimal frequency dispersion, giving you clear, articulate sound even when listening off-axis. 

A 1” silk dome tweeter powered by neodymium magnets give the MX5 a naturally smooth frequency response, while an acoustically engineered 5” low-frequency driver cone offers superior damping to minimize sonic artifacts. The MX5 achieves best-in-class efficiency and ultra-low distortion even when mixing challenging content. 

With a sophisticated dual matte black finish and backlit Sterling logo, the MX5 Black Series will look as good as they sound in your studio environment.

Features

  • 5” Low-frequency driver with acoustically engineered cone design
  • 4-Layer voice coil provides greater motor force for outstanding low-frequency performance
  • 1” Silk dome tweeter features powerful neodymium magnets
  • 70 Watts of high-efficiency, low-distortion Class A/B amplification with 42Hz – 22kHz frequency response
  • Bi-amplified Class A/B design ensures superior transient response and natural bass presence
  • Rear port design reduces low-frequency turbulence and distortion
