Barefoot Sound Footprint01 (Pair)
Save $500.00, Regular $6195.00
Compact 3-way active nearfield monitor pair with Dual-Force technology opposing sub woofers, dual ring radiator tweeter, and Multi-Emphasis Monitor Emulation (MEME) technology
The Barefoot Sound Footprint01 features dual opposing 8-inch paper cone subwoofers, a 4-inch aluminum cone midrange driver and a 1-inch dual ring radiating tweeter, components that all share a lineage with Barefoot's other products.
The 2-way DSP crossover feeds dual Class D amplifier modules that drive the subwoofers with 500W of power and deliver 150W to the mid- and high-frequency drivers. There is a passive crossover network between the midrange driver and the tweeter. The midrange woofer is positioned above the tweeter in an unusual speaker geometry that creates the acoustic focus in the center of the cabinet.
Thomas Barefoot's approach to reference monitor speaker design has always been to provide audio professionals with exemplary sound quality, wide dynamic range and bass extension at every stage of the audio production process, from recording through mixing to mastering. But not every project begins or ends in a high-end studio that offers Barefoot MicroMain or MasterStack monitors. The new Footprint01 model is Barefoot Sound's response to evolving modern workflows, making the company's ultra-high performance technologies available to audio professionals working in home-based facilities, smaller writing, editing or post production rooms, or on the road. Now, composers, songwriters, musicians, beat-makers, post production specialists and others can benefit from the Barefoot sound, whatever their work environment.

Definition on another level!
I will start off by saying a huge thank you to the Studio Economik team for their support and help with those. The speakers themselves are amazing! The bass is very defined and tight and having worked with Yamaha, Adam and Focal in the past, the extended low range can be felt with those. Read more
The highs are well rounded and not spiky and the mid range is well represented. There are sounds and frequencies in songs that I haven't heard before until those speakers, so it feels like I am re-listening and re-discovering music again. Good job Barefoot!

Juste un excellent produit
Je l'ai comparé à des KH310 de Neumann. L'espace stéréo plus large, la qualité des basses et les aigus un peu plus dark me conviennent parfaitement. Des supers haut-parleurs!

What I mean is they suck the guesswork out of processing my files! The enclosure just disappears and you quickly realize how used you were to hearing vibrations in the speaker cabinet. The bass and midrange detail is amazing to say the least. Now I hear Read more
