The Fostex 6301ND features a 4" full-range driver in a tough die-cast aluminum enclosure. You'll find it working hard in TV stations, radio stations, production houses, and government buildings around the world. It produces a surprising amount of clear, accurate sound, and it's rugged enough for just about any work environment.

Versatile connections and configuration options

The back panel of the 6301ND features one unbalanced analog 1/4", and one balanced digital AES/EBU XLR input. There's also a digital XLR pass-through so you can pass signal to another speaker.

There's a three-position input selector switch on the back, too. It lets you set the individual speaker to sum left and right into a mono configuration, or make it the left or right in a stereo configuration. Two speakers required for stereo playback.

An optional Fostex 6301EB adjustable mounting bracket will come in handy if you want to install this speaker permanently.

Features

Overview: The Fostex 6301 series active monitors feature a 4" full-range driver housed in a rugged die-cast aluminum enclosure and powered by a 20 watt class-D amplifier. The speakers have been redesigned to provide higher output with less power consumption, eliminating the need for heat sinks. Designed for clear audio reproduction, the 6301 series has been the industry standard active monitor for broadcast and production facilities since 1982. The flat front-panel design recesses the Power and Volume controls, to avoid any inadvertent changes, and a convenient Auto Stand-by feature will activate when the input signal drops below a certain level for more than 25 minutes, putting the speaker into Standby mode and reducing the power consumption to 0.5 watts or less.

Rear Panel and Mounting: The 6301ND rear panel includes one 1/4" TS input (unbalanced), an AES/EBU-compliant digital input, an AES/EBU digital pass-thru, and the power switch. There's also an Input Selector switch that determines if the speaker will be playing the Left channel, Right channel, or a summed L+R signal, when using the Digital Input. Note: Two monitors are necessary for stereo playback. The speaker is designed to sit on a flat surface, but can also be wall-mounted with the optional 6301EB bracket (sold separately).
