Description

Details

Offering a full-range frequency response in an ultra-compact enclosure, the Fluid Audio FX50 5" Single Point Source Coax Reference Monitor is, Bi-Amplified 90w 49Hz - 22kHz (+/-3db) active studio monitor that's ideal for producers, engineers, musicians, and audio editors in small rooms and studios. The coaxial design arranges the drivers in a stacked point-source configuration to ensure phase-accurate emanation of sound.

A full 90W of bi-amped Class-D amplification drives the 5" paper pulp woofer and 1" soft-dome tweeter, which are loaded in a vinyl-wrapped MDF cabinet outfitted with a bass-reflex slot port. The resulting sonic range is a surprising 49 Hz to 22 kHz frequency response from a monitor that can be placed in a variety of locations, even close to a wall. DIP switches and an accompanying guide on the FX50's rear panel make it easy to tune the monitor to your room and listening preferences; tweak high- and mid-frequency EQ, bass cutoff, and acoustic space attenuation. Also found on the rear panel are the input jacks?a balanced 3-pin XLR, a balanced 1/4" TRS, an unbalanced RCA?and a volume knob.

Coaxial driver

Mounted in the center of the woofer is a 25mm silk dome tweeter in a coaxial configuration. Using this technology (unique in its price range) makes it a ?point source? device, meaning that all the sound emanates from a single point ? not points that are 10? apart. This is crucial for improving off-axis response but also allows for a more compact footprint cabinet.

Boundary compensation DIP switches

Sometimes the spaces where we mix aren?t the most forgiving acoustically
(especially if you?re in a home studio).
The FX series monitors come equipped with boundary control EQ switches, that allow you to compensate for spaces that may not have been ?tuned? or just need to be adjusted due to their proximity to the wall behind them. There is also a guide conveniently printed on the rear panel to show how the DIP switches work, and a more detailed explanation in the user guide.

Class D and DSP powered

Another update from the Fader Series is Class-D amplification. More clean, reliable power, more headroom, and also a standalone powerful DSP integration.
The digitally controlled crossover makes each speaker more consistent. The new FX series is truly a 21st Century reference monitor at home in any recording studio.

LED indicator on the front baffle

The illuminated LED on the front panel is not only a status indicator, displaying whether the FX monitor is on, off, or on standby, but also acts as an alignment beacon that allows you to properly align your speakers to your ear level.

Fluid Audio FX50  5" Single Point Source Coax Reference Monitor, Bi-Amplified 90w 49Hz - 22kHz (+/-3db) Features:

Front-loaded slot port design

The bass-reflex slot port tunes the cabinet to maximize the bass output efficiency of the speaker. It is placed on the front panel not only to directly radiate the bass energy towards the listener but also for flexibility of placement in your studio.

Updated Tweeter Grille protection

The FX coax design, with the tweeter suspended in the middle of the woofer,
is very robust. As such, it provides outstanding protection for the woofer itself. However, the tweeter needs protection as well, this is why we added a small, steel perforated grille to protect the delicate silk diaphragm of the tweeter.

"Imaging and Depth"

It's one thing to put high-quality speaker drivers in a cabinet with an amplifier and call it a great speaker.
But for a transparent reference monitor, that is only the beginning.

Painstaking crossover design and listening sessions were undertaken to optimize not only a flat on-axis frequency response but a depth of soundstage that has become the hallmark of Fluid Audio monitors.
This ensures that your mix will not only sound great on your FX speakers but will translate to speaker systems outside the studio as well.

Bracket Mounts on rear panel

M6 screw mounts and included screws enable wall or ceiling mounting using LD Systems SAT WMD 10 bracket. This, along with the lightweight class-D amplifiers, make the perfect solution for Dolby ATMOS and other immersive systems that require overhead or surround channels of audio.
