Acoustic Space settings (Linear, -1.5 dB, -3 dB, -6 dB) compensate for room placement

​Power and safety:

Biamped 150W RMS (LF = 100W, HF = 50W), Class D power amplifier with switching power supply
RF interference, output current limiting, over temperature, turn-on/off transient, and subsonic filter protection
Energy Conservation Mode (with enable/disable) lowers standby power to <0.5W
External mains fuse
Internal power supply with IEC connector

Superior transient response.


In order to dampen resonance peaks at higher frequencies, conventional dome tweeters are injected with fluid to raise their mass, sacrificing transient response time. By contrast, the custom-designed AMT tweeter in the R65 uses an incredibly thin, folded Kapton membrane (< 0.01 mm) with an inlayed aluminum circuit functioning as the voice coil, allowing the tweeter to move at the same instant as the electric current. The resulting reactive response time provides marked clarity and superior transient reproduction.

Wide, consistent stereo image.

An unfolded AMT tweeter diaphragm provides 8 to 13 times the projection area of a traditional 1-inch dome tweeter, enabling R65 monitors to provide a much wider stereo soundstage than traditional designs. At the same time, the R65 provides a very limited vertical dispersion, which helps to reduce reflections from the ceiling and desktop that can cause phase coherence issues. Because it’s less subject to room-anomaly interference, the R65 reacts predictably and sounds consistent from room to room.

Presonus R65-04Transparent sound.

The R65 utilizes a 6.5-inch, custom-coated, woven Kevlar® low-frequency driver. This rigid cone maintains a more consistent dispersion pattern across its frequency rtesponse range. Biamped and driven by a 150W Class D amplifier—making the R series some of the most powerful monitors in their category—these monitors deliver an open, clear, and less fatiguing listening experience.

Have it your way.

You can customize the R65 in several ways. It’s available with black or blue faceplates to fit your studio décor. With balanced presonus-r65-back_bigXLR, balanced ¼” TRS, and unbalanced RCA line-level inputs, it’s easy to feed audio to your R65 monitors from a mixer, an interface, a media player, or almost any other line-level source. And R series monitors offer user-adjustable contour features for optimizing the monitors for your mixing space. This enables full integration into any studio environment.  Learn about the R65 user controls.
