With a brushed metal grille and outlined design, your CR-X monitors will stand out and make a statement, like 'I'm kind of a big deal' or 'Hey, look at my cool speakers.'
Premium woofers and tweeters are powered by high-headroom amplifiers for clear, punchy sound. The all-wood cabinet adds warmth and natural resonance.
Right there on the front panel is a convenient knob that functions as your power switch as well as your volume. On the rear, there's a handy switch that lets you decide which side of the desk you want that volume control on.
CR-XBT monitors accept inputs from dual 1/4" stereo and dual RCA stereo as well as Bluetooth streaming.
Located at the bottom of the front panel is a headphone output. This is great for when you want to reference on headphones or when you don't want to bother anyone else in the room. Plugging in headphones automagically turns off the speaker output. It really is that easy, really.
Bluetooth connectivity makes it even easier to listen to your music when you want it. When you want to pair your device, just hold down the Mackie 'running man' on the front panel – it's ok, he won't mind.

A 200W amplifier and high-output 8" woofer delivers that big bottom end you've been looking for. Included in the box is the CRDV desktop remote, which gives you a volume knob for your subwoofer and monitors right on your... desk.
