The SRP 500 is a new compact near field active reference monitor. This SRP excels at monitoring effects and other such subtleties in the mix. The enclosure is pressure die cast aluminum that maximizes rigidity and lends it a unique form. The silk dome tweeter is nested in a custom waveguide to produce on and off axis linearity and a wide, detailed soundstage. The 5.25" kevlar woofer produces deep bass and exceptional transient response. A new 50 + 50 watt biamplifier drives the transducers optimally while providing adequate headroom and dynamics. The maximum SPL measures in at an impressive 104dB. DSP based internal processing with high quality ADC and DAC is employed for the crossover and also provides the 0.75dB step calibrated HF and LF room compensation EQs at the rear. On the front is a level control ranging from mute to +6dB with centre detent at 0dB. Tapped inserts at the rear and bottom allow for various mounting options. The SRP 500 accepts both XLR and TRS balanced inputs and is available in the following durable powder coat finishes: rich black, charcoal grey or snow white.
