The SMX15 is a versatile speaker combining high-level acoustic performance with sophisticated ergonomics. It is characterized by an accuracy that rivals the best studio monitors whilst generating sound pressure levels rarely seen in a speaker of this size, producing an extended bandwidth from very low up to very high frequencies.

It uses coaxial technology which offers a perfectly consistent sound field even in the near field: the frequency and phase responses are perfectly linear resulting in exceptional gain before feedback.
The unique ergonomics of the SMX15 have been optimized for use as a high performance stage monitor. APG’s unique ATSTM system enables the speaker to be tilted at five different angles (15°, 30°, 45°, 60°, 90°). The SMX15 offers a different approach to stage monitoring thanks to its genuine compatibility with in-ear monitors, its exceptional acoustic performance, and in particular because of the extension it provides in the low end which considerably enhances the experience for the artist.

Used as medium throw FOH system, the SMX15 is perfect for all types of live entertainment or music playback. Combined with subs, it becomes a compact high power near-ield or mid-field FOH system, or a monitor system for side-fill or drum-fill. For low frequency reinforcement, the recommended subs are: TB118S, TB215S, TB218S or SB118.
