MUNROSONIC Egg100 Monitoring System

MunroSonic has added a new smaller monitor to its range. Mike Hillier cracks open the Egg100 Monitoring System…

The MunroSonic Egg100 Monitoring System is the new smaller sibling to the distinctive Egg150 Monitoring System. Like its bigger brother, the Egg100 is a complete system, comprising dedicated left and right speakers, coupled with a control unit and amplifier. The speaker design uses the same curved, infinite baffle design as the Egg150’s in the distinctive egg shape, but with a smaller enclosure housing a four-inch driver.

Simple set-up

Setting up the Egg100 in our studio was a fairly simple process; the speakers come with two-metre Speakon cables to connect to the control unit, and unlike the larger Egg150 system there are no Aux inputs, just a pair of XLR inputs. Also gone is the Mid EQ, leaving the front panel much simplified, with only a volume pot, power switch and headphone port. On the side of the unit are recessed HF and LF filters, enabling close room equalisation of the speakers, with precision potentiometers giving up to 10dB attenuation on each channel. Our studio has been treated, and we have a fair amount of space between the speaker stands and the nearest wall, so we opted to simply roll a small amount of high frequency from the top end, while leaving the bottom end flat. In smaller spaces, however, it may be useful to also dial out a little bit of the low-end.
