Studio Quality Sound

The AV42 speakers feature 4" polypropylene-coated woofers and 1" ferrofluid-cooled silk tone tweeters, delivering crystal clear highs and tight, powerful bass. With onboard amplification providing 20 Watts of power per channel, these speakers produce an impressively large and well-defined sound, despite their compact size. The acoustically-inert MDF cabinets prevent unwanted resonances for added clarity, while the optimised bass reflex design and OptImage IV wave guides provide superior imaging and a rich, vibrant sound.

Versatile Connectivity Options

The speakers come equipped with RCA inputs and a front panel auxiliary 1/8" stereo jack, allowing you to connect them to a variety of sources including mixers, computers, MP3 players and more. A convenient front panel headphone output mutes the speakers when in use, enabling you to quickly reference your mix in another source.
