Monkey Banana Turbo 5 Studio Monitors (Pair)

Premium Studio Monitor

The Turbo Series is stylish in appearance and employs serious engineering to achieve the best acoustic performance. The signature non-regular hexagonal structure is most effective in minimizing standing waves inside the enclosure. High-quality MDF is used for the enclosure to damp out unwanted resonances and ensure a solid and inert structure to mount drivers to. All internal surfaces are lined with blended absorption materials to damp the structure of the cabinet further. The Bass-reflex acoustic design combines maximum efficiency and optimal bass extension. All this is done behind a sophisticated industrial design utilizing modern fashion elements to achieve this perfect combination of sound quality and appearance. 

Turbo 5 is an active studio monitor and an ideal solution when a smaller model is an attractive option. The Turbo 5 is great for perfect mixes and mastering in small to medium monitoring environments. Do you need accurate control in the broadcasting studio? No problem with the Turbo 5. Meanwhile, ambitious gamers dive into the acoustic gaming world with even more realism using Turbo 5. The Turbo 5 is also the perfect monitoring solution as a fixed installation in bars, restaurants, shops, or in the office. The application fields for the Turbo 5 are extensive.

A 5.25” woofer with a magnetically shielded polypropylene/ceramic membrane is combined with a 1” silk dome tweeter on the Turbo 5. The high-power handling tweeter delivers clear and extended treble, while the PP carbon fiber / ceramic composite cone for the woofer provides a perfect balance between strength and weight. The bi-amplification power is 50 watts for the woofer and 30 watts for the tweeter. The custom-made amplifier design uses only professional-grade multi-layer PC boards (compared with the single-sided PC boards used in other speakers). This ensures that the circuitry and components have better reliability and better performance, which means higher fidelity sound.

Review

'Fairly good from classical music to speed metal.'
