PreSonus refreshed their Eris studio monitor line-up in September 2023, introducing an array of new and updated models that included the Eris Pro, a coaxial design available with 6.5 or 8-inch drivers (along with a 10-inch subwoofer). Now, they’ve announced the launch of another model, the Eris Pro 4, which offers a more compact version of the design that’s well-suited to applications such as immersive mixing rooms.
As its name suggests, the latest addition to the range is loaded with a 4.5-inch coaxial driver that incorporates a 1-inch silk-dome tweeter. It promises to deliver a detailed transient response, with a natural sound that helps to combat listening fatigue. The single point-source design also helps to ensure accurate phase alignment between the drivers, delivering a wide ‘sweet spot’ and maintaining a symmetrical dispersion pattern — factors that are always desirable, of course, but become even more crucial when configuring accurate multi-speaker immersive setups.
Balanced analogue inputs are provided on XLR and quarter-inch TRS sockets, with an RCA connector accommodating unbalanced signals. An Acoustic Tuning section on the rear panel houses both mid- and high-frequency EQ controls (±6dB centred at 1 and 10 kHz, respectively), along with a switchable 80/100Hz high-pass filter and -2/-4dB Acoustic Space settings to compensate for low-frequency build-up when the monitor is positioned near walls or in corners. Power is delivered by an internal Class AB amplifier, which provides 80W and allows the monitor to deliver a peak SPL of 99dB at one metre. Frequency response is quoted as 55Hz – 20kHz, although no down points are specified.
The Pro 4 is also kitted out to accept wall or ceiling mounts, making it easier to install for height channel duties in immersive rigs.
