The Boulder MKII 3 way active monitor will retain all the great attributes of the original MK I, such as the same Baltic Birch sealed plywood cabinet, albeit larger to accommodate the two new 8" SEAS woofers, the original ELAC coaxial 5" midrange with 50kHz folded ribbon tweeter, and the same custom E.A.R Class A/B amplifiers and crossover.
The results of the 4x 8" woofers over the previous 4x 6.5" woofers is an increase of 4dB in SPL figures and even more low frequency extension with the -3dB point at 33Hz and -3dB at 36kHz.
The Boulder MkII has the same fast tight transients with the bass being reproduced perfectly as before but now delivered with detailed sub frequencies too as the 8” woofers move a lot more air and the user can feel the bass now as well as hear it!
The new SEAS 8” woofers also produce even more clarity and detail in the lower mids, up to the crossover point for the 5” mid driver.
“Tests with existing Boulder users and dealers has been amazing, everyone loves the MK II and many have ordered upgrades for their MkI's which is possible as in the past we supported Rock MkI customers by offering MKII upgrades. The Boulder MKII has hit that balance of having a really super accurate detailed monitor for mixing but is also a fantastic vibey monitor to work while writing and tracking a band”.
