PreSonus’ Eris E5 XT and E8 XT active studio monitors feature an all new elliptical waveguide design designed to provide a wider sweet spot and more focused vertical dispersion, for close-field mixing. Larger enclosures afford an extended low-frequency response that complements the new high-frequency design.

PreSonus Eris E5 XTThe new custom elliptical waveguide design provides superior high-frequency response with a broad 100° horizontal dispersion to expand the sweet spot. The tightly focused 60° vertical dispersion minimizes early reflections, helping to eliminate one of the most common sources of environmental interference, creating a more consistent response both on- and off-axis. In addition, the XT models’ ported enclosure is larger than that of the original E5 and E8, allowing them to reproduce significantly lower frequencies.

Available in addition to the original Eris E5, the E5 XT features a 5.25-inch woven composite woofer and 1-inch silk dome tweeter, backed by 80W of biamped, class-AB power to deliver up to 102 dB SPL. Its frequency response ranges from 48Hz to 20kHz. Replacing the original Eris E8, the E8 XT is equipped with an 8-inch woofer and 1.25-inch tweeter powered by 140W of biamped, class-AB amplification and can crank out up to 105dB SPL. Its frequency response ranges from 35Hz to 20kHz. Like all PreSonus studio monitors, Eris XT monitors provide acoustic tuning controls that allow them to be configured a specific room. There are also Low-cut, Mid, and High controls, as well as three-way acoustic space tuning that allows compensateion for placement against a wall or in a corner.

Eris XT monitors provide balanced XLR, balanced quarter-inch, and unbalanced RCA line-level inputs, so you can hook them up to an audio interface, analogue or digital mixer, monitor controller, or almost any other line-level source. Eris monitors also have safety features to reduce the chance of accidental damage including protection against RF interference, output current limiting, over-temperature protection, power on and off transients, an external mains fuse and subsonic protection.

The Eris XT monitors are available at street prices of Eris E5 XT US$149.95 each; Eris E8 XT US$249.95 each.
