Pioneer debuts active reference DJ speakers

Pioneer introduces its first active reference speakers designed specifically for DJing and music production. The first two models from the line are S-DJ08 and S-DJ05 models, which feature built-in linear equalization and four switchable inputs.

The compact speakers pack a 2.5 cm soft dome tweeter and a 5-inch (S-DJ05) – 8-inch (S-DJ08) woofer and have a special curved waveguide enclosure, that directs the soft-dome tweeter’s sound in a wider pattern for” better imaging and staging”, while the Bass Reflex enclosure extends the lower frequency range to provide more mid-bass and bass output. The speakers also have a built-in linear equalizer, a low resonance chimney-style heat sink and a bi-amp circuit that drives the tweeter and woofer separately.
