Perfect for delivering audio superiority in any acoustic environment, the monitor comes fitted with on-board equalization to help you define and tailor your tone specifically to the room in which you are situated. Featuring 12 bands of Room EQ and eight bands of User EQ for customized response curves you are able to effectively compensate for any dip in quality when placed behind an external obstruction.
