ProAc Studio 100 - Pair, Black Ash – No Longer Available

Monitor-level performance from an established compact design

Product Description

The ProAc Studio 100 is consistently selected by top recording engineers for near-field monitoring in major studios - ample testimony to its overall sound quality and neutrality at monitor reference levels.

Few compact loudspeakers offer such a clean uncolored performance and remarkable transparency. With virtually flat frequency response and negligible distortion, the Studio 100 is one of the most accomplished compact performers on the market today.

The bass unit is unique. Manufactured exclusively for ProAc, it has a particularly linear motor assembly, superb magnet and chassis construction and a special center pole plug. When precisely tuned in the cabinet, this driver gives an incredibly natural bass quality and definition, combined with generous power handling.

The tweeter is a featherlight one-inch soft dome unit, once again specially manufactured for ProAc. Made from a new impregnated fabric, the dome itself is exceptionally light in construction giving the Studio 100 a distinctively uncolored and transparent high frequency.

The high quality crossover network marries the two drive units seamlessly giving a spacious sound stage with almost tangible imagery. Only the finest components are used and the speaker is wired throughout with our own high-quality multi-strand wire. The cabinet itself is made from a composite material with walls of differing thicknesses and a new and more efficient heavy damping material ensures that the cabinets are practically inert.


Although the Studio 100 can be shelf-mounted, high mass stands with good rigidity are preferable for optimum results. The full potential of these thoroughbred designs will only be realised through the use of the highest quality partnering equipment.

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.
