These compact powered monitors feel light but solid. The rear panel sports a finned amplifier with power inlet/switch below and line inputs above (XLR, TRS and RCA). The rigid plastic front baffle centre houses the silk dome tweeter (in waveguide), coated paper composite woofer, volume trim fader and slot-shaped bass reflex port.
Without a doubt, the F5s deliver performance beyond their price point. Good transient response, a smooth mid to HF range and some punchy power make them good candidates if you have a small budget.
The slightly bulbous low-end isn't marred by any overt resonant peaks, but is something you'll have to get used to. Ultimately, though, the F5s give you a lot of speaker for your money.4 Stars
