The Mackie CR3 3" Creative Reference Multimedia Monitors are well-priced to suit just about any budget — but they aren't cheap. From their birch plywood cabinets to their ferrofluid-cooled tweeters to their smooth waveguide design, the CR3s are built with high-quality components and thoughtful design. The woofers' small size belies their low-end punch, and the silk tweeters, kept cool by ferrofluid, articulate superbly for pleasing treble frequency production. The custom-tuned rear bass ports and included acoustic isolation pads further enhance the CR3's sound quality, minimizing bass buildup and facilitating purer waveform production throughout their entire 80Hz–20kHz range.
Mackie CR series reference monitors pack heavyweight punch in a small form factor. Each pair features 1/8" TRS input on the front and dual RCA and 1/4" phone jack inputs on the rear panel. There's a selector switch for determining which stereo channel (left or right) is sent to the powered speaker, so you can have it on your left or right, and the front panel's 3.5mm headphone jack conveniently mutes the speaker output when in use. And with 50W of power pushed through the built-in waveguide design, you can expect plenty of volume and smooth, clear sound dispersion at every listening level.
Designed for premium sound that won't break the bank, CR Multimedia Monitors deliver the performance you expect from a Mackie studio monitor in designs ideal for home studios, multimedia creation, AV post-production and broadcast. Plus, with user-friendly front panel features and two models featuring Bluetooth® for music streaming, they are great for any desktop in any situation
CR monitors deliver a combination of high-quality components and professional build quality typically only found on more expensive studio monitors. But, they are affordable and ultra-compact. Switch from video editing to music listening in no time flat. Edit a video, then watch a video. You are a multi-tasker who appreciates great sound. CR helps you in all aspects of your multimedia creation and enjoyment.
