You'll take care of two essential studio needs with the affordably priced Alesis M1Active 520 USB.
Speakers and interface in one
The Alesis M1Active 520 USB speakers make the most of your desktop space - they are an all-in-one professional monitoring and recording solution. On the monitor side, they boast a wide 56Hz-20kHz frequency response through a 5" woofer and 1" silk-dome tweeter. Plus, these monitors send your audio directly into your computer via USB, so you can get to work building songs inside your favorite DAW.
Optional bass boost switch
Listen back to your favorite tracks with a little bit of extra low end "oomph" - the Alesis M1Active 520 USB 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.
Lightweight, portable design
Meant to be portable, take these speakers with you wherever you need to record and listen to your mixes. Perfect for the laptop musician, the Alesis M1Active 520 USB speakers are small enough to fit in your backpack - and, with their plug and play capabilities and minimal cable mess, you can take them to any computer and start working right away.
