Barefoot Sound Footprint02 3-Way Active Studio Monitor - Pair

Pair of smaller, even more affordable sibling of the beloved active, 3-way Footprint01 monitor featuring the same Dual-Force technology, dual ring radiator tweeter, and Multi-Emphasis Monitor Emulation (MEME) technology that has made Barefoot famous!

Product Description

Based on the best-selling Footprint01, the Barefoot Sound Footprint02 studio monitors utilizes the same cutting-edge technology as its predecessor to deliver Barefoot’s signature sound in an even more compact and affordable package. With an active 3-way design and dual 200-Watt Class D amplifiers, these powerful near field speakers combine stunning sound quality with a wide dynamic range and smooth bass extension.


Equipped with four compact, yet powerful drivers, the Footprint02 utilizes an an active 3-way design to deliver even, balanced sound from 42 Hz - 45 kHz. Two 6.5-inch paper cone subwoofers utilize Barefoot’s patented Dual-Force technology to eliminate cabinet vibrations and reduce unwanted distortion. A 4-inch aluminum cone driver delivers a focused detailed midrange, while the 1-inch dual ring radiating tweeter offers silky-smooth highs with an extremely wide sweet spot all the way up to 45 kHz.


The Footprint02 houses a cutting-edge two-way DSP crossover, which feeds dual 200-Watt Class D amplifiers, and a passive crossover network between the midrange driver and the tweeter for a clean, balanced sound. Much like the Footprint01, the Footprint02 features the same instantly recognizable front baffle speaker configuration with the tweeter positioned below the midrange woofer. With side-mounted dual opposing paper cone subwoofers, dual ring radiator tweeter and aluminum cone midrange driver housed in a sleek cabinet with rounded corners and edges, the Footprint02 looks as good as it sounds.


All Barefoot Sound reference monitors are equipped with Multi-Emphasis Monitor Emulation, or MEME technology, which uses sophisticated DSP processing to emulate the sound of a wide range of classic studio monitors. Quickly reference your tracks on three additional monitor profiles and ensure your mixes will translate to any environment.

“Old School” mode emulates the sound of the iconic Yamaha NS10M monitors, with an edgy, midrange-forward sound. The “Cube” setting is modeled after the legendary Auratone Sound Cube, giving your mixes a boxy lo-fi sound. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the “Hi-Fi” setting emulates the sound of consumer hi-fi systems with a sweet high-end and warm midrange. And of course, the “flat” setting delivers the signature Barefoot sound that engineers, producers, and musicians around the world have grown to know and love.

Great frequency response and solid build quality

By Benjamin L on October 14, 2021

Great monitors, love using them

By jeremiah z on September 27, 2021

Gorgeous amount of detail and great volume potential. The low end is super strong & solid. I replaced 2 sets of monitors and a sub for the Footprint02’s. I’m a Barefoot convert from now on.

By JarrettHolly on August 3, 2021

These Barefoot Footprint02 studio monitors are amazing. They give you all the low end, mid range, and high end frequencies you need to make intelligent choices in the studio. Their depth and clarity is remarkable. Highly recommended!

By Ben H on July 16, 2021


By ONLINE32215 on June 15, 2021

The low-end is so clean on these, and I love the Hi-Fi setting for general listening or when I’m composing and not mixing. I honestly can’t imagine having their bigger models in my modest studio since these are plenty loud at 25%. These were well worth the wait and I cannot recommend Barefoot and VK enough!

By Jonathan M on June 9, 2021

Our ADAM A7s served us well for 7 years, but when we wanted to upgrade, our Rep Jason Cropper recommended the Footprint002s as the "best bang for the buck." Wow, so true! It took a while to get accustomed to the more massive sound, but after tuning our small radio production studio with Sonarworks SR4, the Barefoots really came into focus. The precision of the bass is breathtaking and the overall clarity and realism makes it easy to confidently sculpt and de-noise tracks as we create music programs and documentaries. The MEME feature is cool too!

Perfect for mixing radio programs in a small room. All is revealed!

By UnderCurrents on March 5, 2021

Absolutely the best monitors I’ve ever used. The imaging and clarity are second to none. Never before did I GENUINELY thing the band was right in front of me. I can pinpoint exactly where each source is panned as if it were a real live performance I was watching. I’ve been working in music for over 20 years. My best friend is a composer in LA and I’ve been listening to his work for 10 years+. When I listened on the FP02’s I was actually moved to tears by his scores. I am kicking myself for not going Barefoot years ago when I wanted to.

By JamesHurley on December 21, 2020

Absolutely love them

was worried there wouldn't be enough bottom end but there is absolutely more than enough!!! stoked!!!!

By matt h on December 20, 2020

I needed these for a work from home rig I just finished setting up and LOVE them! Very accurate in a near-field "less than ideal" living room situation. Plenty of bottom and volume.

By PBoyd on December 17, 2020

Extremely impressed. I was feeling the limitations of my HS7s w/ sub and was willing to spend money but it felt like the next jump worth while was over 10k. When I came across these my eyes lit up. Smooth highs, tight mids and a surprisingly accurate low end. I’m moving faster because I hear the problems more accurately. Feeling much more confident about the decisions I’m making for mix and production.

By Roawn W on December 1, 2020

Couldn't be more pleased. I did a shootout of several monitors and these were the clear winners. Extreme detail and with the meme technology this pair are just extremely useful tools for crafting a mix. Most full range sounding speakers under $3k to my ears.

By Phil G on November 19, 2020

Great, working wonderful in my smaller room.

By Andy T on November 12, 2020

Superior sound quality and doesn’t take up too much space!

By Anthony M on October 29, 2020

There is simply nothing in the Barefoot class. I really tried everything else but in the end it’s well worth waiting 3 months for these. Next up in class outside of the Barefoot ecosystem was the Focal trios, just my two cents.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
