Those on the lookout for a pair of studio monitors should look at the PreSonus Eris E5 Two-Way Active Monitor Pair Kit. This pair of monitors features a 5.25-inch Kevlar woofer and a 1-inch tweeter per monitor. Their class AV amplifiers provide a combined output of up to 140-watts, while each monitor can handle up to 102dB SPL. The Eris E5s provide a number of input options including XLR, TRS, and RCA, allowing them to be integrated into a variety of systems. Each monitor features 3 EQ controls, allowing you to tune them to your environment for optimal performance. In addition, the 3-position Acoustic Space switch allows you to compensate for the bass boost that often occurs if you place your monitors near a wall or corner.
