Akai RPM 500
The Akai RPM500 is a compact active studio monitor featuring 90-watts of class A/B amplification which drives the 5.25" woofer with 50 watts and the 1.5" voice coil tweeter with 40 watts. The woofer and tweeter together produce a frequency response from 50Hz to 30kHz.
The Akai RPM500 active studio monitors rear panel featres HF Trim, MF Boost and LF Cutoff controls to allow you to mix in any acoustic environment. The rear panel also includes XLR, balanced TRS and RCA inputs so that no matter what your source you can always plug into your RPM500's.
Included with the Akai RPM500 studio monitors are isolation pads which dramatically decrease structure-borne resonances.
