Ideal compact monitors
For the past couple of weeks, we’ve been working on a set of active speakers that are, without a doubt, smaller than any other active speaker we’ve ever worked with. But the funny thing is, we don’t feel they sound like compact speakers at all.
Founded in 1983, Abacus is a Germany based company specialized in designing and manufacturing audio related equipment, like active speakers, subwoofers, (pre)amplifiers and digital streaming devices, which are all handmade in Germany.
We wanted to test the C-Box 4 because we where curious if a speaker this compact could really deliver a full range sound. To our surprise, they indeed seem to be pretty much full range. It’s like the people at Abacus where able to bend the laws of physics when they designed it.
But despite being able to dig really deep, they can’t do that with lots of SPL, so don’t expect chest pumping kick drums, at least not without the help of some serious room gain. Find out why we recommend them highly here: Abacus C-Box 4 – User review – Gearspace.com
