Mackie CR4-X Multimedia Monitors put studio-quality sound right on your desktop at a great value. Mackie have earned their reputation for quality studio monitoring over the years, and CR4-X Multimedia Monitors are just as suitable for multimedia production as they are for gaming and casual listening. Musicians at Music Experience appreciate the convenient front-panel headphone output for private listening sessions, and a range of inputs are ready to accept signal from your computer, audio interface, or portable device. Whether you're outfitting an editing studio, or simply looking to upgrade your desktop listening experience, you'll be impressed with Mackie CR4-X Multimedia Monitors!

Studio-quality monitoring at an entry-level price

The Mackie CR4-X 4" 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 CR4-Xs 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 CR4-X's sound quality, minimizing bass buildup and facilitating purer waveform production throughout their entire 70Hz–20kHz range.

High-value functionality

Mackie CR-X 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.

Upgrade your listening experience with Mackie CR-X Creative Reference Multimedia Monitors.

Sleek cosmetics

With a brushed metal grille and outlined design, your CR-X monitors will stand out and make a statement like "I'm kind of a big deal" or "Hey look at my cool speakers".

Studio-quality sounds

Premium woofers and tweeters are powered by high-headroom amplifiers for clear, punchy sound. All-wood cabinets add warmth and natural resonance.

Control it

Right there on the front panel, is a convenient knob that functions as your power switch as well as your volume. On the rear, there's a handy switch that lets you decide which side of the desk you want that volume control on.

Flexible inputs

Standard models come equipped with both 1/4" and RCA inputs plus a 1/8" Aux In. Bluetooth models add, you guessed it, Bluetooth!

Got headphones?

Located at the bottom of the front panel is a headphone output. This is great for when you want to reference on headphones or when you don't want to bother anyone else in the room. Plugging in headphones automagically turns off the speaker output. It really is that easy, really.
