The ESI aktiv 05 is a high-quality 2-way powered monitor developed for audio engineers and producers looking for high-performance sound reproduction at an affordable price.

Designed for use with balanced and unbalanced signals, the monitor offers a combo XLR-1/4" input connector. The built-in amplifier provides 30W to the tweeter and 30W to the woofer, while the universal power supply includes a switch for 115V/230V operation, allowing the speaker to be used anywhere in the world. The aktiv 05 ships with a standard IEC power cord.
