Akai Announces the RPM 500 & RPM 800 Monitors

Akai RPM series monitors

Akai seems to be on the roll lately. Akai announced the RPM 500 & RPM 800 the same day they announced the MPC Element. I guess if you’re in the market for new monitors then give these a look. After reading the specs it looks like these monitors can play back lower frequencies down to 40hz. Akai seems to be throwing stuff against the wall to see what sticks. Monitors are important and hopefully Akai made sure these monitors will do the job. Just in case my readers didn’t get the word, here it is. Read more below.

A Fortress of Sound

Engineered for meticulous reproduction of even the most complex modern music, Akai Professional’s RPM500 & RPM 800 studio monitors easily handle layer after layer of sound, providing critical detail and the tools needed to mix with confidence. Dedicated proximity and EQ-tailoring controls give you the ability to fine-tune the speaker in diverse mixing environments. Each cabinet is painstakingly reinforced to minimize flex, combating unwanted coloration while blocking anomalies and sound artifacts from polluting your mix. The fast Kevlar® cone provides lucid low-end agility, reproducing intricate bass patterns with ease. It’s authoritative sound for the craft of music production, only from Akai Professional.

Kevlar is a registered trademark of E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company.
