    3-inch Powered Portable Monitor Speakers with Protective Grill (pair)

    With the prevalence of computer based music editing solutions, there is a greater need than ever for a great sounding set of small, shielded speakers, such as these 3-inch Powered Portable Monitor Speakers from Monoprice!

    These monitor speakers are designed to produce a flat frequency response, which makes them perfect for use by audio professionals or anyone else looking for true and accurate audio reproduction. Powered by a built-in audio amplifier, these monitors can be used anywhere AC power is present, while magnetic shielding ensures that they will not interfere with computer monitors or television displays.

    The master speaker contains the controls, connections, and built-in 30 watt amplifier (15 watts/channel). It connects to an audio source using L/R stereo RCA jacks. A 3.5mm jack on the front allows you to connect a pair of headphones, which disables the speaker output. Another 3.5mm jack on the front allows connection of an auxiliary audio source. A Bass Boost switch on the back of the speaker increases low-frequencies by 3dB, for improved volume and greater bass presence. The second speaker connects to the first using standard speaker wire.

    The tweeter is a 1" silk cone design with magnetic shielding and internal damping. The 3" paper cone woofer is coated in polypropylene to produce a flexible, but incredibly strong, speaker that is capable of both accurate reproduction and loud volume levels. The woofer is magnetically shielded and uses a high-temperature voice coil, so it won't fail under heavy use. The drivers are covered with a protective grill, making them easier to transport and better for use in rough environments.

    Great for the price initially, after a while the part of the amp powering the right speaker seems to lose power.

    Pros: Decent audio quality for the price. Balanced.

    Cons: Longevity. It seems the power for the right amp reduces in output power over time. Can't play much over 1/2 way without distortion but by that time it is plenty loud for most near field applications.

    Similar to many other reviewers, now my right speaker overall volume output is much lower than the left speaker (speaker with the amp). They still work and sound decent but I was thinking it was my source when sitting in front of the speakers I could not hear the right speaker as much. The only solution on my computer is to boost the volume on the right speaker or reduce the output of the left speaker so they are more even sounding.

    Powered speaker died after warranty expired

    • John Hassel,

    Pros: Sounded good when they worked.

    Cons: One speaker no longer works after 18 months.

    I could just copy/paste my experience from Eli or Hank's review. The secondary speaker only plays at a fraction of the volume of the main speaker. I tried playing music from different devices, swapped out cables, and adjusted volume on the speaker and device. It's just broken. They sounded decent when they worked, but they should've lasted longer than 18 months! Now I'm out of warranty and out of luck.

    Powered speaker died right after warranty expired

    • Eli Simpson,

    Pros: Okay sound (nothing remarkable though) while they lasted.

    Cons: Bad quality build leads to problems shortly after warranty expires.

    Like a few others who have posted here the left powered speaker is now much quieter than the right. Checked and my warranty expired 2 months ago. Convenient.

    speakers not working well

    • Hank from Atlanta,
    •  Atlanta, GA 
    • 12/27/2015 9:50:34 AM

    Pros: Great sound when it worked well.

    Cons: The left speaker is now 20% as loud as the right speaker. Tried switching the sound card on my computer and replacing the wire from the speaker to the computer. Still, I have to have the computer set the sound in the right speaker at 20% and the left speaker at 88% for normal sound. REally a problem.

    I have been a heavy user of Monoprice products for many years. I suspect the problem is in the hardware portion of the powered speaker on the left.

    I like the speakers, but now that they do not work well, i have to come up with another solution. Contacted Monoprice, but out of warranty. Not happy.

    I see others have had the same problem (Reviewer: Steven M Wall from Olathe, KS)
