A step up from standard hi-fi computer speakers
This matched stereo pair of Alesis Elevate 5 studio monitors may look a lot like the hi-fi computer speakers you’re likely to find at big box stores, but below the surface, there’s a world of difference. Typical consumer speakers are designed with what we refer to at Sweetwater as a “smily-face” EQ curve. In other words, the highs and the lows are boosted and the midrange is cut slightly. The result is a sound that’s flattering to your ears (much like when you crank your stereo) even at low volumes. They may sound good, but they’re not accurate, and therefore will cause you to make bad mixing decisions. Alesis Elevate 5 studio monitors, on the other hand, are designed to be flat and allow you to make better decisions so your mixes will translate better no matter what system you play them on.
Add low end with the bass boost switch
Listen back to your favorite tracks with a little bit of extra low end “oomph” – the Alesis Elevate 5 features a bass boost, so you can kick up the bass a bit when you need it and pull it back when you don’t.
Natural and neutral sound
Designed for crystal clear sound reproduction, the Alesis Elevate 5 monitors are perfect for listening to mixes and multimedia content with an ear towards perfection. The Elevate 5 boasts a wide 56Hz-20kHz frequency response through a 5″ woofer and 1″ silk-dome tweeter. Whether you’re mixing tracks, mastering a project, or just listening to some music, these monitors have you covered.
