Features

HD-Coaxial driver unit for accurate point source monitoring

The RM series adopts its new HD-coaxial driver unit based on Pioneer sub-brand TAD’s*1 technology. placing the woofer and the tweeter on the same axis to ensure a truer response across the frequencies. A newly developed waveguide minimises interference between the drivers, to produce a true, neutral sound with excellent isolation, perfect for near-field monitoring in a professional studio.

*1 Technical Audio Devices Laboratories (TAD Labs) is a Pioneer sub-brand preferred by professional studios since 1978

50 kHz tweeter for precise, electrifying high frequencies

The 1.5-inch hard dome aluminium tweeters were designed using unique Pioneer technology*2 for added frequency response. The diaphragm’s shape and materials are optimised to deliver precise, rousing high frequency sounds.

Rigid die-cast aluminium cabinet with curved contours for superb sound clarity

The RM Series housings are made from die-cast aluminium for maximum rigidity and reduced resonance at all volumes. The cabinet’s curved surfaces optimise the rigidity and reduce external diffraction – while giving the speakers a sleek design that will look good in the studio.

AFAST acoustic tube reduces standing waves for clean low-mid frequencies

Pioneer’s AFAST*3 technology drastically reduces standing waves that can produce a muffled response in the low to mid ranges. An acoustic tube in the cabinet absorbs just the standing waves, ensuring true reproduction of low to mid frequencies.

Front-loaded bass reflex system with grooves for smooth, clean bass

The RM-05 and RM-07 feature aramid fibre woofers for a robust bass response. Plus the front-loaded bass reflex design and innovative grooves on the bass ducts reduce air friction, even when the speakers are positioned right against the wall.

Low/Mid/High EQ settings for added flexibility and control

A three-band EQ (Low/Mid/High) gives producers the option to tailor the monitor speakers’ sound or audition tracks for certain scenarios, and has four pre-sets for each band.
