KSD A500 3-Way Monitor

KSD A500 3-Way Monitor is the flagship model of the KSdigital A-Class, designed with dual 10″ bass drivers and a horn-supported tweeter for robust, accurate sound reproduction. Engineered for professional studios, the A500 excels as a 3-way reference monitor, delivering high sound pressure and precise tonal reproduction. Its advanced FIRTEC(TM) phase-linear filters and dedicated 3″ dome midtone driver ensure a detailed, clear, and time-correct sound conversion, providing an unmatched resolution in the sound image and a precise virtual stage.

Key Features

  • Advanced Sound Conversion: Utilizes time-correct sound conversion technology for precise audio reproduction, ensuring that all frequencies reach the listener simultaneously and without delay.
  • High Performance Bass: Features two 10″ high-performance bass drivers that produce ample bass energy, ideal even for larger control rooms, complemented by a patented 1″ compression driver for dynamic, high-resolution audio.
  • Optimal Frequency Response: The 80°x60° horn ensures a linear frequency response, minimizing sound distortion from housing edges, and creating a quiet and accurate listening environment.
  • Powerful Amplification: Includes three 250 W RMS power PWM power amplifiers with a converter-free connection, reducing losses and enhancing sound clarity and resolution.
  • Versatile Connectivity: Offers seamless integration into any studio setup, whether connected digitally or via an analog input with a 24 bit / 192 KHz AD converter.
  • Customizable Sound Settings: Features high and low frequency shelves on the amp for quick adjustments, with further refinements possible through the optional KSD-RC Remote, which adds additional filters, EQs, delay, and level control.
  • Specialized Monitoring Options: When connected digitally, the KSD-RC Remote provides an M/S listening matrix for separate mid or side signal monitoring and precise volume control.
