Optimized for excellent reproduction of heavy bass frequencies.

The Akai Professional's RPM8 reference production studio monitor is specifically designed for use with MPC music production workstations and production controllers. RPM8 studio monitor is a 2-way, active, bi-amplified, nearfield loudspeaker made for producers, recording engineers, remix artists, DJs and other musicians.

The 2-way monitor speaker features an 8-inch woven-kevlar low-frequency driver with 80W RMS of continuous amplification for robust, full bass all the way down to 39 Hz. The Akai monitor's high-frequency system consists of a 1-inch silk-dome tweeter with 40W RMS of continuous amplification, mounted on a custom, functionally optimized waveguide for excellent control of directivity and reduction of unwanted early reflections.

The RPM8 studio monitor contains active, 4th-order crossovers for outstanding separation and optimal power management. Its speaker cabinet is constructed of industry-standard MDF for low resonance, and is dually ported on the front baffle for bass extension in any setting, including soffit-mounted installations.

The bi-amplification, ported cabinet design and overall acoustical efficiency combine to produce a speaker that can deliver up to powerful 113 dB SPL and with accurate frequency response from 39 Hz to 20 kHz.

Akai RPM8 monitors feature a bicolor LED clip indicator, which assists in avoiding damage to your system. You can connect professional studio systems to the RPM8's combination XLR-balanced 1/4" TRS inputs for compatibility with a wide variety of source equipment.
