Sonodyne burst on the studio scene here in the U.S. recently (though the company has been cranking out great speakers for many years internationally). At NAMM, the company unveiled the SM 200AK, their latest active monitor achievement. the SM 200AK features 250 watts of power driving an 8-inch Kevlar woofer and a 1-inch metal-dome tweeter. The baffle is die-cast aluminum for maximum rigidity. A power switch and volume control are up front, while gain and response switches are around back.
