The 150-Watt NEKKST K5 Studio Monitor’s unparalleled, world-class performance is the result of a major collaboration betweenBEHRINGER audio engineers and loudspeaker master-designer/founder of KRK – Keith R. Klawitter. This incredible reference system is ideal for all critical listening environments thanks to the custom-engineered bi-amplification system that features separate amplifiers for the 5" glass-fiber woofer and 1" silk-dome tweeter. K5’s long-throw woofer generates deep, tight bass and virtually smear-proof mids, while the ultra-high resolution tweeter provides sparkling highs – all enhanced by Keith’s Advanced Waveguide Technology for an extremely generous sweet spot.
The goal of a great studio monitor is to present an accurate representation of your mix, so you can tell how well it will translate to the diverse listening environments and systems of today, such as car stereos, club sound systems, radio, portable digital music players and others. The remarkably-flat response of the NEKKST K5 allows you to work with the complete confidence that your mixes will “play” accurately on these systems and to your audience at large.
The ultra-linear, 150-Watt reference-class NEKKST K5 was designed by renowned acoustic icon and founder of KRK, Keith R. Klawitter – a man who has devoted much of his life to the quest for the “perfect” loudspeaker. The K5 features Keith’s advanced Waveguide technology for the ultimate in acoustic dispersion, which generates an extremely large “sweet zone” for easy and optimal monitoring. A true bi-amped system, an ingenious crossover design and separate amplifiers are utilized for high and low-frequency signals, providing superb sound reproduction from the long-throw, deformation-resistant, glass-fiber cone woofer and pristinely-accurate, silk-dome tweeter. The NEKKST K5 not only satisfies seasoned engineers and producers, but makes audiophile-level sound accessible to both home and professional recording studio applications. Keith Klawitter wrote the book when it comes to modern studio monitors, and to quote the monitor-master, “This is my best work yet!”
With its 150 ultra-clean Watts of output, delivered through separately-powered drivers via a true bi-amping mode with 2 amplifiers per speaker, the K5 delivers high-resolution sound that really brings out the best in your music. You will notice that most competitors apply simple passive crossovers, which not only inaccurately separate the frequency spectrum, but most importantly impact the drivers’ performance. BEHRINGER has gone the extra mile, driving each woofer and tweeter with a separate amplifier for absolute signal integrity.
The ability for a studio monitor to adapt to a wide range of acoustic conditions is of paramount importance, and the NEKKST K5 delivers extreme versatility in this arena. K5’s rear panel features switches for adjusting high and low-frequency response, compensating for varying room attributes, or for pairing with a dedicated subwoofer. Independently-controlled limiters protect both the woofer and tweeter against overload.

Post Audio MP-5 is designed to increase monitoring accuracy by decoupling your monitors from the surface they are sitting on, eliminating rumble and false bass frequencies. This is a very affordable way to easily improve the sound of any studio monitor.
Each pad has two parts, each with a 4 degree angle. That allows you to tilt your monitor at several different angles: flat, +/-4 degrees, or +/-8 degrees. This allows you to place your monitors flat on your desk top, angled down or angled up for your best listening position.
MP-5's are made of high density foam. They measure 6.75" by 11.5" and include 2 pads to accommodate a pair of monitors. MP-5's are typically used with studio monitors with 5 or 6 inch woofers, but can be used for any isolation task in the studio or with home stereo and video components such as noisy DVD players.
