The XE300 is the definitive, high-performance compact monitor. It features a high-specification 12" (300mm) LF /1.4" exit HF Coaxial Differential Dispersion driver to deliver perfect sound over the artist's listening plane. The LF driver section has a 3" (75mm) voice coil and efficient motor with an aluminium demodulating ring to minimise distortion, while the HF driver utilises a 1.4" (35mm) exit HF compression driver with a 3" (75mm) pure titanium diaphragm.

Its unique Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology produces a horizontal coverage pattern which varies from 60° when the performer is directly over the monitor, narrowing to 30° further back. This narrowing delivers a near-rectangular coverage plane at head-height to maintain the sound level and balance independent of distance from the monitor.

The XE300 enclosure is constructed from multi-laminate birch ply, with integral ergonomic handles and finished with a hard-wearing paint. A strong, perforated steel grille with an acoustically transparent cloth backing provides protection for the Coaxial Differential Dispersion driver, while moulded feet on the base prevent movement onstage with additional rubber feet on the side panels providing added protection if the monitor is upended when carrying.

Frontal reflex ports couple with the floor to increase LF output and inbuilt risers can be used to increase the monitoring angle for longer-throw applications.

XE Series monitors are designed as a complete system with the iK42 4-channel Class D Amplifier, offering a unique combination of power and audio performance seamlessly combined with advanced DSP, proprietary VU-NETTM software control and DanteTM digital audio networking. State of the art components and a finely optimised design results in generous power reserves that ensures pristine sound quality is maintained even under the most extreme conditions. As well as maximising the capability of the monitor, this ensures that the monitor engineer and artist can be confident that they will experience this same high level of consistent performance from an XE monitor anywhere in the world.
