Value-packed Monitors!

Alesis's Elevate 5 reference monitors continue their tradition of building great studio gear for affordable prices. This matched stereo pair of monitors offers incredible definition and flat frequency response with the help of high-precision drivers and a carefully designed crossover. The front-port provides you with deep bass-extension and high SPL output, and a custom-designed cabinet provides you with excellent imaging. What's more, a Bass Boost EQ switch and allows you to tailor the Alesis Elevate 5 speakers to your environment.

A step up from standard hi-fi computer speakers

This matched stereo pair of Alesis Elevate 5 studio monitors may look a lot like the hi-fi computer speakers you're likely to find at big box stores, but below the surface, there's a world of difference. Typical consumer speakers are designed with what we refer to at Sweetwater as a "smily-face" EQ curve. In other words, the highs and the lows are boosted and the midrange is cut slightly. The result is a sound that's flattering to your ears (much like when you crank your stereo) even at low volumes. They may sound good, but they're not accurate, and therefore will cause you to make bad mixing decisions. Alesis Elevate 5 studio monitors, on the other hand, are designed to be flat and allow you to make better decisions so your mixes will translate better no matter what system you play them on.

Add low end with the bass boost switch

Listen back to your favorite tracks with a little bit of extra low end "oomph" - the Alesis Elevate 5 features a bass boost, so you can kick up the bass a bit when you need it and pull it back when you don't.

Natural and neutral sound

Designed for crystal clear sound reproduction, the Alesis Elevate 5 monitors are perfect for listening to mixes and multimedia content with an ear towards perfection. The Elevate 5 boasts a wide 56Hz-20kHz frequency response through a 5" woofer and 1" silk-dome tweeter. Whether you're mixing tracks, mastering a project, or just listening to some music, these monitors have you covered.

Alesis Elevate 5 Powered Studio Monitors Features:
  • Compact, full-sounding monitors for listening to mixes and multimedia content
  • Comes in a matched stereo pair
  • 5" low frequency woofer for clear bass and midrange
  • 1" silk dome tweeter for clear highs without ear-fatiguing harshness
  • 40 watts of power output
  • Magnetically shielded for close placement to video monitors in computer based music production studios
  • Front panel headphone jack
  • Includes a pair of speakers, power cable, interconnect cable, and audio cable

Plenty of sonic bang for the buck.

If your home studio is operating on a shoestring, you can not beat the Alesis Elevate 5 studio monitors for both price and quality. If you are worried about maybe a lack of low end punch, Don't be, these speakers can crank out lows for just about any bottom heavy genre of music with no problem. If you do need a little more punch, they feature a bass boost switch. I have no complaints with the clarity of mids and highs either ! For under $150 (pair) you can't go wrong !!!

SUPERB active monitors for the price

I ordered a pair of these from Sweetwater and got my order about a week later. Upon opening them out of the box I was BLOWN AWAY !!GREAT LOOKING speakers and powerful, ACURATE sound-staging at a RIDICULOUSLY low price point !! During my listening tests, there were TEARS OF JOY welling up in my eyes... the sound quality of these is THAT good !! The basics - 5 Inch Kevlar woofers... 1 inch silk dome tweeters... DUAL ports to dramatically INCREASE lower bass extension... and EXCELLENT build quality, including a nice rocker power switch and RCA type inputs on back of the unit. These are great-looking and great SOUNDING speakers that could be used not only as monitors, but also as 'audio-file' powered speakers or computer speakers... and they are a MAJOR step up from what you'd find at a typical mall or department store... at a very AGREEABLE price !! GET THEM... you won't be disappointed !!
