M-Audio BX5 Nearfields Look the Part
Cor, what a lovely pair...

Like their predecessors, the BX5a monitors pack lot of punch for their size. The 5 low-frequency driver cone is crafted from Kevlar, in contrast to the polypropylene used in the original BX5. Kevlar is the same material used in bulletproof vests, so it should be able to deal with a decent bass drum! For those who like to know...
Specifications for the BX5a include 56Hz-22kHz frequency response, 3kHz crossover frequency, greater than 100dB dynamic range (typical, A-weighted), input impedance of 20k ohms balanced (10k ohms unbalanced) and input sensitivity of 85 mV pink noise input producing 90dBA output SPL at 1 meter with volume control at maximum. The BX5a is factory programmed for either 115V ~50/60Hz or 230V~50/60Hz. Protective features include RF interference, output current limiting, over temperature, turn-on/off transient, subsonic filter, and external mains fuse.
Dimensions are 9.85 in. (h) x 6.54 in. (w) x 7.88 in. (d); weight is 11lbs/unit. The BX5a's are now available at $399.99/ £199 per pair
