Output Frontier 6.5" 2-Way Active Studio Monitor - Pair

2-way active studio monitor pair featuring Barefoot’s pioneering audio technology with 6.5 inch time-aligned coaxial drivers, 200 watt combined bi-amplified architecture, and solid walnut base


Product Description

A true union of performance and style, the sleek Output Frontier 6.5" 2-Way Active Studio Monitor is the product of a collaboration between Output and Barefoot Sound. Originally known for their software instruments and plug-ins, Output has attracted a dedicated following with their line of stylish and affordable studio furniture, including the popular Platform desk, Sidecar rack, speaker stands and acoustical panels. Barefoot Sound revolutionized the world of monitor speakers back in 2006 with innovative technologies and expert acoustical design, and continues to advance the art of speaker design with each offering.

The first thing you notice about the Frontier monitors is their utterly unique look—but it’s not all for show. The solid walnut base not only gives each speaker a distinct look, it also helps isolate the cabinet, reducing vibrations transmitted to your desk or speaker stands. A small gap between the base and upper portion of the cabinet is highlighted by a tasteful white LED that doubles as a status indicator.

The next thing you notice is the coaxial, dual-concentric driver arrangement, which combines a time-aligned 6.5-inch woofer and 1.25-inch tweeter for point-source sound that remains perfectly in phase from any listening position. Designed and tuned by Thomas Barefoot, the aluminum-alloy driver diaphragms produce a flat, anechoic response from 45 Hz to 25 kHz with low distortion. The forward-facing bass port allows you to place your speakers close to a wall without worrying about low-end buildup, giving you an accurate representation of the bass in your mix.

Committed to reducing their impact on the environment, Output has designed Frontier to minimize waste and reduce power consumption. An EcoMode switch on the back of each speaker dramatically reduces power draw from its 265-watt maximum to just 280 milliwatts, helping you save power when you’re using them for casual listening. Recyclable aluminum, renewable wood and 100% recyclable packaging reduce waste—not that you’ll ever want to part with these monitors.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

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.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
