They sound decent, of course they are colored for the price range and go for 500 new. These were just to get me off my feet for my project.
Well one speaker blew and it never even got played loud or anything. As a matter of fact I only had them for a week.
200 bucks flushed down the toilet.
Everyone told me they were good "budget" montiors, sounded good in the store.
Apparently, M-Audio's tech support sucks and all of the Bx8a line have reliability issues.
Fuck M-Audio, first my cables now my speakers. I won't put down money on anything from here on out unless I know I'm getting a quality product.
Guess this is what I deserve...
So yah, If anybody is considering getting any M-audio monitors because of the sonic state review don't waste your money. I'm getting ready to take them apart now and see if the cones are ok, whatever...
I think the key part here is.......
off of ebay
If someone's selling something cheap, there's a reason for it. My original monitors were relative cheap mackies that haven't blown out on me.
Although the one M Audio sound card I had died on me.
