Neumann KH 420 - 3-Way Active Studio Monitor - EA

The KH 420 represents the result of using the latest techniques in acoustical, electronic and mechanical design to bring a new benchmark in audio reproduction quality. In-house computer optimized drivers, a waveguide featuring Mathematically Modeled Dispersion™ (MMD™), flexible acoustical controls, various input options, and an extensive mounting hardware range allow the KH 420 to be used in diverse acoustical conditions, with any source equipment, and in a wide variety of physical locations.
The KH 420 has been designed for use as a mid-field or main monitor. It is particularly well-suited for use in music, broadcast, and post production studios for tracking, mixing, and mastering. The KH 420 can be used free-standing or flush mounted into a wall, and, in multichannel systems, can be mixed freely with other loudspeakers in the range.

Product Feature Benefit to the Customer
Computer mechanically modeled three-way cabinet design using Low resonance Integral Molding™ (LRIM™) materials
No standing wave resonances inside cabinet
Reduced intermodulation distortion in midrange for a more transparent sound
Reduced cabinet resonances
New in-house simulated magnetically shielded drivers
Latest modeling techniques used to minimize non-linear (intermodulation) distortion
For safe use near magnetic storage media
Dedicated driver reproduces important midrange frequencies, which is especially important for speech and vocals
Light weight dome has better transient response and less breakup modes than cone designs
High power magnet reduces harmonic and intermodulation distortion
Long throw bass driver with Extremely Linear Force Factor™ (ELFF™) and flow optimized die cast basket
Linear pistonic motor gives a very low harmonic distortion even at high excursions
Reduced air noise and improved rocking modes
High-capacity flow-optimized bass reflex ports with pipe damped
Reduced compression at high output levels
No coloration from organ pipe resonance
Elliptical Mathematically Modeled Dispersion™ (MMD™) waveguide, with wide horizontal and narrow vertical dispersion
Smoother off-axis response
More forgiving of diverse acoustical environments
Freedom of movement across the mixing console
Reduces reflections off the mixing console
