The Barefoot Sound MicroMain27 is a groundbreaking studio monitor that is in a class all its own. It is quickly becoming the premier choice for top mixing and mastering engineers. The speaker is designed to address the demands of modern recording. It breaks down the barriers between nearfield, mastering and main monitors. No need to have multiple pairs of speakers crowding your studio; no need to guess what the mastering engineer is going to hear. The MM27 is compact and powerful, truly a "nearfield on steroids." While exceptionally neutral and designed for critical listening, the MM27 is still very capable of rocking the house. It redefines the definition of a main monitor - a "micro main" monitor. The only monitor you may ever need.
The MM27 features a 1" soft dome tweeter, dual 5" midbass drivers and dual 10" subs housed in compact sealed enclosures that yield high linearity and outstanding impulse response. With 500 Watts of power in the subwoofer channel alone, the dual 10" drivers cross over seamlessly from the midbass, reaching down to 33Hz and rolling off at 1/4 the rate of ported designs to reveal much more deep bass information. Since the sub motor structures are locked together the opposing forces cancel out and the cabinet remains rock steady even at very high output levels. There is no need for bass management in 5.1 systems because the MicroMain27 is truly a full-range monitor. The speaker can be placed either vertically or horizontally using the included pedestal (9" L x 13/8" W x 21/4 H). The idle power consumption is 30W or 250mA @ 120VAC. Placing the speaker in standby mode reduces power consumption to about 10W or 100mA @ 120VAC.

Sound Anchors Stand Mounting Procedure
1. Remove the mounting bracket from the stand and place it on the side of the speaker cabinet. Line up the mounting holes, insert the bolts and finger tighten. If the bolts are too long and bottom out before the bracket is snug against the speaker cabinet, STOP. You may have the wrong size bolts. Contact Vintage King.
2. Secure the speaker mounting bracket to the stand at desired height.
3. Attach MM27 handles the side of cabinet opposite to the side the mounting bracket will attach to. Then set the speaker horizontally on the floor.
* If your cabinet doesn't have mounting bolt holes on both sides, then set the speaker horizontally between two stacks of books straddling the subwoofer to prevent it from touching the floor.
4. Tilt the stand down and line up the mounting bracket holes with the cabinet bolt holes.
5. Insert bolts and tighten until the mounting bracket is snug against the speaker cabinet. Do not over tighten! If the bolts are too long and bottom out before the bracket is snug, STOP. You may have the wrong size bolts. Contact Vintage King.
* A good way to ensure you do not over tighten the bolts is to put the long end of the Allen wrench into the bolt and turn it using the short end. Tighten the bolt using no more force than you can apply to the short end of the wrench while holding it in the tips of your thumb and index finger.
6. Carefully tilt the entire assembly (speaker and stand) back up so it stands vertically.
