Legacy Series - YSM5

55w, 5-inch woofer

The Yorkville YSM5 is the most compact studio monitor in the YSM series, making it perfect for small listening spaces and desktop studios. Unmatched clarity, precise reproduction and surprisingly punchy bottom end response for a monitor in this class, the YSM5 uses a solid ¾-inch MDF cabinet and baffle to reduce rumble and cabinet self-interference. The front facing port design solves the issue of bass coupling with back walls and corners in small environments which can generate false low-frequency information in your mix.
