PreSonus today unveiled its new Eris™-series studio reference monitors. These ultra-affordable, 2-way, bi-amped monitor speakers are designed to deliver accurate response with a tight bass and very clear upper end. They can also be user-adjusted to the acoustic space, allowing you to create a more accurate listening environment or to simulate different common listening environments – a feature not typically provided by studio monitors in this price point.

The Eris E8 features an 8-inch, Kevlar low-frequency transducer, driven by a 75 watt, Class D power amplifier; and a 1-inch (25 mm), silk-dome, high-frequency tweeter with a 65W, Class D amplifier. It can deliver up to 105 dB SPL, peak. Frequency response is rated at 45 Hz to 22 kHz.

The compact Eris E5 sports a 5.25-inch, Kevlar low-frequency driver, mated with a 45W, Class D amplifier; and a 0.79-inch (20 mm), silk-dome tweeter powered by a 35W, Class D amplifier. It can crank out a clean 102 dB SPL, peak. Frequency response is rated at 64 Hz to 22 kHz.

Both Eris models have individual balanced XLR and ¼” TRS input connections in addition to unbalanced RCA inputs. Both offer RF shielding, current-output limiting, over-temperature protection, and subsonic protection.

Users also can make several types of custom adjustments. A four-position Acoustic Space switch controls a second-order shelving filter, centered at 100 Hz, that provides three attenuation points (no attenuation, -2 dB, and -4 dB), allowing you to control the bass response relative to the wall proximity of your speakers. A High Pass switch sets the low-frequency cutoff (second-order slope, -12 dB/octave) to be flat, 80 Hz, or 100 Hz. You also get continuously adjustable High Frequency and Midrange controls from -6 dB to +6 dB.
