Hi Guys. I am new here but I tried to search for any information on the Eris E4.5 and have not been able to find anything useful.

So let me just get to the point. I am on a small budget for a pair studio monitors and I came across the Eris E4.5s and I want to know if anyone uses them. What are your impressions about the frequency response or accurate representation of the sounds? If your genre works with a lot of low frequencies I would love to hear you opinions.

Thanks

studio monitors are expensive things. I wouldn't wonder about
the "accurate representation of the sounds" for a $99 studio monitor ($199/pair). low frequencies? they have a 4.5'' drive...the frequency response is 70 Hz - 20 kHz...
Low frequencies need large drivers or a sub...

in short, do they sound good in an absolute scale? obviously no. do they sound good for the price? definitely yes!

Thanks for your input.

I will go and test the speaker but I was just making sure I was not leaving behind an options. I was originally looking at the JBL LSR305s because they are on sale for 119.00 (238.00/Pair). And I believe the frequency response is a little better.

if you can go up to the Eris 5 ($299 pair), go for it! totally different story w.r.t. Eris 4.5...
Eris 5 sound really really good for the price.
