Choosing your monitors

How to find the right monitor

Every speaker in the Quested range is designed for a specific job but all have a family sound, a signature. From our smallest systems to our largest systems a smooth consistency can be heard.

Typical listening distance and frequency bandwidth should be your main guide. We list our monitors by application of use. Near field: up to 1.5M from your listening position. Midfield: up to around 3M from your listening position. Main monitors are 3M or more. This is just a guide and if you are unsure do get in touch.

Faithful, True, Transparent

A studio monitors job is to offer a faithful representation of your mix. They should be transparent, not adding any artificial or flattering low and high frequency. A monitor should be a true reference to reveal every little detail in your mix, a stable sound stage allowing creative placement of instruments, vocals or effects in the panning of sources. A studio monitor is one of the most important tools in a studio.

Quested is a sound engineering led company. Firstly the pure acoustics must be as good as we can achieve. Our monitors are designed to not use corrective EQ or extreme filters to achieve a flat response and this means no short cuts. No artificial boosting or cutting of any frequencies. As no frequencies are being influenced artificially by the speakers amplification or DSP, a very honest result is produced with a high ratio of headroom capability to the size of speaker.

Powerful, Accurate, Consistent

Quested monitors  deliver a powerful performance and consistent results. Maintaining our reference and original goal to be as accurate to the original source material as possible. We acoustically tune all of our  studio monitors to perform  closely to one another with the variance being low frequency extension and max SPL. Depending on the distance of your mix position, room size and frequency extension you require the very smallest systems with the addition of subs can produce the performance of our very largest systems in near field proximity listening.

 

Inside the box

Quested Monitors pioneered the use of soft dome high frequency drivers and more importantly, mid frequency units in the early days of professional studio monitors. The soft dome drivers used in Quested speakers produce a super accurate, detailed response that many engineers and producers also find to be non-fatiguing during long sessions in the studio.

A clean yet powerful low frequency response is vital in maintaining a reference to work with. With low frequency transducers and sub loading techniques a flat response can be reproduced to below 20 Hz depending on system resource and configuration.

With the use of both class AB amplification and class D amplification, the electronics are tailored to suit the driver they are partnering too. Utilising a unique floating drive stage, the class AB design delivers incredibly low distortion where it counts in the all critical mid-high domain. The speed and attack of the class D output stage means a fast responding, low frequency transducer can provide the kick and deep sub lows required in lots of musical and effect content.
