Key Features

    The Pioneer RM-07 is jam-packed with different features that render it a premium-quality DJ Speaker set. These features are:

  • Accurate Point Source Monitoring – One of the selling points of the speaker is the coaxial driver units. These units put the tweeter and the woofer on the same axis. What this does for you is that it ensures that all audio emanates from a single point source. This enables a more accurate sound that is true to the original audio. Apart from that, the waveguide featured on this speaker helps to minimize the interference between the two drivers for a crisp sound.

  • Precise High Frequencies – Also included with the speaker is a 1.5-inch aluminum hard domed tweeter. The tweeter including the diaphragm is custom designed to ensure only the most precise high frequencies.

  • AFAST Acoustic Tube – The technology Pioneer DJ includes works using an acoustic tube inside the cabinet to absorb all standing wave. This ensures an improved acoustic response.

  • Tight Bass Response – Another feature includes an aramid fiber woofer that ensures a tight bass response. The unit is designed in such a way so as to reduce air friction and deliver a clear and crisp bass.

  • Flexibility and Control: – The speaker has 4 presets for the 3-band (Low/Med/High) EQ it possesses. This allows you to tailor the sound to your needs. Moreover, it offers two unbalanced and balanced input ports that provide you with more flexibility and simplicity.

What We Like

    The Pioneer DJ RM-07 matches the well-known brands in pro monitoring. However, still, to determine the true quality of the speaker, you must test these out for yourself.

  • Durability: – Overall, we found that the cabinets were quite rigid and durable. They were made from die-cast aluminum and had rounded off corners which impart an attractive look to them. The rigidity and sturdiness of the cabinet mean that you can play it at the highest volume without worrying about it vibrating or moving too much.

  • Energy Saving: – Another feature that we loved was the auto standby mode. The speaker automatically turns itself off when there is no signal input for at least 25 minutes. However, as soon as a signal is sent, it turns itself on quickly. This conserve a lot of energy and helps cut corners on your electric bills.

  • Sound Accuracy: – One of the biggest challenges with most speakers is the sound accuracy. However, we were pleasantly surprised with the accuracy on this unit. The accuracy is independent on the tweeter, so you can mount the tweeter anywhere you like. We found that it reproduced the sound quality quite accurately.
