The woofer is coated with polypropylene. This material does not need as much power to drive it as metal does, which is found on other woofers. The woofer has a high-temperature voice coil. The tweeter is a cone design made from silk. Silk gives a very nice reproduction of the high frequencies. The drivers are ferrofluid cooled. Honestly, I don’t think the price difference between the two models justifies getting the lower-powered AV32 model. Having only 10 watts of power for each speaker is too little for my tastes. Even if I am not driving my speakers at full volume, I like them to have the capability to increase volume. With more room to increase the power, the sound is better, with less distortion.

One of the technical differences is the M-Audio AV42 model comes with waveguides that can be aligned using the light emanating from the LED power-on indicator. The previous AV40 model does not have wave guides. A wave guide works by physically directing the sound wave in such a way as to enhance the sound and give it certain characteristics as well as a location in the stereo field.For added purity of sound, the MDF cabinets have been designed to be acoustically-inert, eliminating resonance that would steal clarity away from the sound.

The bottom line is that the AV42 are reasonably priced and work well for hearing a bit more of bass if that is your preference. The bass is strong from a monitor set without a subwoofer but not overpowering. The MDF cabinets are designed to be acoustically inert. This stops unwanted resonance that could create frequencies that might otherwise make a muddy-sounding bass.

M-Audio Studiophile AV42 Active Monitors (Pair) Includes: Not only are they great for producing music but they’re also ideal for gaming, watching movies and listening to your favourite songs. The opinion of this reviewer is similar to mine. The AV32 and AV42 models are not going to give the same quality as more expensive professional studio reference monitors. They do add some sound coloration that while pleasant to the ear may not be wanted for those seeking an actual true reference sound. However, all-in-all, the price point of the AV42 monitors is reasonable for what they offer. They are quite useful and represent an exceptional value for the money.

The one-inch tweeter is cooled by ferrofluid and has a silk cone. It uses OptImage IV tweeter wave guides for improved stereo imaging. There is a blue power LED light on the front that can be used to help align the wave guides. The AV42s are rear ported and feature 4-inch woofers. The 1-inch tweeters are located above the woofers. It would be difficult to expect much given the small nature of these drivers, but they produce quite an accurate and balanced sound. They are audibly budget speakers, but the bass is tight and the mids and top-end are crisp and correct. Although at higher volumes the sound quality suffers, these speakers perform quite well for listening to music, watching movies and playing games at medium volume. VerdictWith the M-Audio AV42, you can use the wave guides to help direct the high-end frequencies coming out of the tweeters to create the sweet spot you like. A sweet spot is the position between your monitor and yourself where they sound the best to your ears. I like to test monitors when running them at half the maximum power output rating. For this reason, if I wanted to get a pair of the M-Audio monitors in this series, I would readily choose the AV42 model over the AV32 model to get more power. Universal compatibility with tablets, computers, or mobile devices. Great for music production and other professional media creation and ideal for upgrading your sound for enjoying music, movies and video games. M-Audio Studiophile AV42 Active Monitors (Pair) Key Features: Ensuring tight and accurate bass, each of the speakers feature 4” polypropylene-coated woofers while 1” ferrofluid-cooled silk cones provide clear and pristine high frequencies. The safety features include magnetic shielding, RF interference protection, on/off transient protection, output current limiting, and thermal protection. Size
