Equator Audio D5 - Black (Pair) Product Description

The new D5's (Direct 5) studio monitors from Equator are geared for the recording professional seeking a small (9.75" x 7" x 8.5"), affordable, accurate, well-voiced, reference studio monitor solution. Focused attention was paid to the development details to ensure that they deliver professional sonic performance. These monitors feature an expensive coaxially designed transducer with a 5.25" woofer and a 1" silk tweeter.  The frequency response is 53hz to 20khz. A new cutting edge digital amplifier with breakthrough performance was designed specifically for the D5. The internal DSP allows for intricate factory adjustments.

The D5 also has pro features such as balanced XLR and balanced/unbalanced TRS inputs as well as a boundary selection switch to select the appropriate monitor response for their placement (in a corner, in front of a wall, free standing).  No plastic front baffle here.  The D5 features an all wood cabinet, including a wood front baffle for optimum performance.  No simple air releasing cutout on the front baffle or cut-out hole in the back.  The D5 features a fully extended 1.75" perfectly tuned front port, providing superior and accurate extended low-end response.  And because the port is on the front baffle, the D5's can be positioned close to a wall with no fear of the low-end being choked.  

The coaxial transducer design combined with a steep 4th order crossover delivers a detailed mid-range that allows for clarity in that complex 900Hz - 3 kHz range.  Guitars, voices, strings, horns, & reverb trails are very clearly and accurately portrayed and any mid-range anomalies that might exist in the source material can be easily determined and addressed. Because of our matched transducer output, mid-range mix elements can be positioned in the stereo field without the fear of being misplaced.  The D5’s are optimally pre-set and voiced for ideal instrument translation.

Like the Q Series, the D5 features our Zero-Point Reference™ custom designed coaxial Digitally-Controlled Transducers™ along with internal DSP to provide a matched output curve for every unit. This allows for accurate no-shift imaging. The DSP allowed pin-point accurate adjusting during the voicing process. The voicing was aided by award-winning recording engineers that referenced their hit mixes for voicing considerations.  The final D5 pre-set voicing curve is optimal for mid-range detail.  With high-quality components, internal DSP, 100w of power and 103 dB of SPL the D5 deliver a huge bang for a little buck.
