Mackie CR5-X studio monitors are unrivaled in sound and style. Now you can have true studio sound in any creative space, whether you’re a content creator, a DJ, solo artist, producer, or are simply looking for stellar sound so you can enjoy your favorite music, movies and more. The CR5-X combines a silk dome tweeter and a 5” polypropylene woofer for clean, articulate sound with plenty of low-end extension.
Premium woofers and tweeters, high-headroom amplifiers and all-wood enclosures—this is what professional sound is made of. CR5-X studio monitors deliver clean, accurate sound for bedroom studios and gaming setups alike.
Sounding great is only half the battle—your multimedia monitors should reflect your style too. The sharp aesthetic of CR5-X monitors looks great in the studio, the bedroom or any home listening setup. Be bold and make it loud without sacrificing style.
No one likes having to dig around for monitor controls. That’s why we put a volume control and power switch right on the front. Toggle the speaker placement switch to change which side of the desk you want the volume knob on. Your creative space is a personal command center. We’re just giving you better tools to control it.
We wouldn’t limit you to just one input type! CR5-X monitors have 1/4“, 1/8“ and RCA inputs for added versatility. With so many options, you can connect an audio interface, turntable, smartphone or media player all at once.
So, your mix sounds great through your studio monitors. Now what? Get a second perspective of your mix using the front-facing headphone jack. Listening through the headphones jack automatically turns off output from the monitors—no need to twist knobs or pull faders.
Treat yourself to some extra bass. CR-X monitors have polypropylene woofers and rear-firing ports for tight bass response, but if you really want to shake the block, add the CR8S-XBT. The matching subwoofer is driven by a 200W amplifier and 8” high-output woofer for a deep low-end punch. Learn More
