Professional Components – Professional Results
We build the AV 40s with the same quality materials and precision electronics as our acclaimed M-Audio professional studio speakers. The audiophile-grade Class A/B amplifier architecture, ferrofluid-cooled silk cone tweeters, polypropylene-coated woofers, and dense wooden enclosures add up to big, defined sound that defies the speakers' small size.


Extended Low End
If you crave bass, the AV 40s have you covered. With wooden cabinets and bass reflex design, the AV 40s kick out serious low frequencies - perfect for producing hip-hop and electronic music, or enjoying your favorite CDs, MP3s, DVDs, and games.


Clear, Cohesive Sound
The AV 40 speakers use proprietary OptImage wave guide technology - originally developed for the professional M-Audio speaker line - to deliver superior clarity and detail. Each speaker also features a precision-engineered crossover, which ensures that the sound emanating from the low-frequency driver will blend seamlessly with the sound from the high-frequency driver - so those deep lows transition smoothly into crystal-clear highs.


Magnetically Shielded for Desktop Use
Many speakers emit stray magnetic flux that can wreak havoc with your computer's video monitor or a nearby TV. The AV 40s are magnetically shielded, so they can coexist with other equipment without interference.
