Next-generation of Barefoot’s Footprint series studio monitors featuring a tri-amplified 3-way configuration with 260 watts of power per monitor, ported speaker design, MEME voice emulation technology, and new SPOC (Spectrally Optimized Conversion) technology
BAREFOOT SOUND FOOTPRINT03 3-WAY ACTIVE STUDIO MONITOR – PAIR
The Barefoot Sound Footprint03 is the third iteration in the best-selling Footprint Series of active studio monitors. A bold leap forward for the series, the Footprint03 both builds upon its predecessors’ innovative designs and introduces even more groundbreaking features, most notably the new fast-transient ported speaker design and revolutionary Spectrally Optimized Conversion (SPOC) technology. But even with these new specs, the Footprint03 feels like a natural evolution for the entire series, offering a unique and unrivaled listening experience at an affordable price.
COMPLETELY NEW SPEAKER DESIGN
The original Footprint speaker utilized Barefoot Sound signatures like Dual-Force Technology and the Dual Ring Radiator Tweeter. But for the Footprint03, the team decided it was time to push the speaker’s design, performance, and quality further than ever. The result is a departure from Barefoot Sound’s sealed cabinet design in favor of a ported speaker for extended low-end response and minimal self-noise. Additionally, all three aluminum speaker cones sport a more powerful magnet and motor system for greater output, less compression, and a spacious soundstage.
Making its debut in the Footprint03, SPOC, or SPectrally Optimized Conversion, is a cutting-edge technology that integrates an analog crossover section before the analog-to-digital conversion process, allowing high frequencies to reach the converter without attenuation. This small but significant change gives you a higher resolution, lower latency, and incredible clarity across the frequency spectrum.
ADVANCED DSP AND MEME TECHNOLOGY
Along with these new specs, the Footprint03 also includes the same specially designed Digital Signal Processor (DSP) found in previous models. With near-imperceptible latency, the DSP instantly processes every sonic detail in your signal with accuracy, full dynamics, and no unwanted distortion. The DSP also powers Barefoot’s patented Multi-Emphasis Monitor Emulation (MEME) technology to perfectly emulate the sound of classic nearfield monitors at the flip of a switch. From classic mix cubes to hi-fi speakers, MEME technology allows you to hear how your mix will translate on a wide range of playback systems – without leaving the mix position.
RELIABLE SOUND FOR YEARS TO COME
Built with a specially crafted Footprint Gray polyester coating and put through extensive stress tests, the Footprint03 is a sturdy and compact speaker built to provide exceptional performance for years to come. The built-in mounting points and small form factor make the Footprint03 an excellent choice for both stereo mix rooms and multi-channel Immersive formats like Dolby Atmos.
