Compact monitor iLoud® MTM offers high-end design and features for project and home studios
IK Multimedia started to offer a white finish option for iLoud® MTM reference monitor. To sever their customers better who are looking for white stylish equipment IK Multimedia has added a white color choice for its iLoud® MTM, a dense reference monitor meant to produce pristine sound and fantastic accuracy for the modern professional and home studio. It produces innovative features not found elsewhere, and sound quality that rivals monitor several times the price.
iLoud MTM delivers unparalleled accuracy, power and bass, 100W RMS power, and a class-defying 40 Hz to 24 kHz frequency response for a “firm”, balanced, and defined low end, to exceed the sound of speakers twice its size.
IK’s advanced DSP expertise was leveraged to offer an ultra-flat frequency response, but more importantly, a truly linear phase response – a premiere feature in this price segment available only on a handful of products costing considerably more. This provides a natural, true-to-life sound made possible by IK’s advanced DSP expertise.
The symmetrical MTM (midrange-tweeter-midrange) design provides point-source performance for superior imaging, even at close distances, so users can create mixes that will translate across multiple playback systems, with no ear fatigue. The design’s exceptional, controlled sound dispersion enhances the transparency and neutrality by minimizing the impact of room acoustics, for truer monitoring.
iLoud MTM also offers one-touch, acoustic self-calibration derived from IK’s award-winning ARC™ System, with an included reference microphone to easily adjust to any room’s acoustics.
Additional features include: 103dB SPL maximum sound pressure; audiophile-grade, high resolution algorithms and top-of-the line A/D converters; off-axis response management to minimize the effects of room reverberation; and IK’s patent-pending Physical Response Linearization (PRL™) system that corrects the system’s performance in real time.
iLoud MTM also comes with a tilting isolation mount that adjusts from 0° to 20° for a wide range of setups, a rubber base for horizontal shelf-placement, and a bottom thread for mic stand mounting.
Incredible accuracy and transparency, deep and defined bass, precise stereo imaging at any distance, and automatic room calibration – all in a monitor that’s small enough to fit on any desktop – make iLoud MTM ideal for nearfield work or as a workhorse monitor in a home or project studio.

Reference-class, ultra-linear response
Highs are neutral and defined, mids are clear and balanced, and lows are as balanced as ever. You can mix for hours with no ear fatigue, and the work you create will translate better than ever. And of course it’s loud, with 100W RMS total power per speaker and 103dB SPL maximum sound pressure, delivering the proven volume the iLoud brand is known for.
A new phase in accurate sound reproduction
Most conventional studio monitors, even high-end designs, suffer from skewed phase response caused by traditional, phase-shifting crossovers and driver/enclosure phase alterations. The end result is an unfocused stereo image, blurry transients, and overall lack of detail. iLoud MTM leverages IK’s two decades of DSP experience to offer a true phase-coherent response across the useful frequency spectrum, for unbelievably realistic, natural sound like you’ve never heard.
You’ll hear instruments and dialogue as if it’s happening live, discover more detail in your tracks than ever before, and stop wasting hours trying to EQ away issues with your mixes that were never really there. This linear-phase response is rarely found in speakers even several times iLoud MTM’s price, and has to be heard to be appreciated.
Symmetrical MTM design for superior imaging and precision
iLoud MTM uses a midrange-tweeter-midrange symmetrical design, with a pair of 3.5” high performance woofers and one 1” high definition, back-chamber loaded tweeter, which provides ultra precise, defined, point source sound that can’t be achieved by traditional 2-way systems at close distances. This means an even more natural, life-like sound, where the speakers “disappear” and you can focus on the music. It also minimizes the ear fatigue caused by traditional 2- or 3-way designs, where different frequencies arrive at your ear at different times. So you can mix longer, with less effort.
Loud MTM’s design also offers exceptional sound dispersion, enhancing the transparency and neutrality of what you hear.
The controlled dispersion minimizes the impact of room acoustics, for even truer monitoring. The end result is faster, easier mixing with better results.
IK’s iLoud Micro Monitors stunned an industry. Producers and engineers at every level marveled at the performance coming from such a small setup, so IK challenged our team to push its concept even further – to design a new compact speaker to rival 5”, 6” and even 8” monitors.
The result is iLoud MTM, and it changes everything about the sound, accuracy, and convenience of reference monitors in today’s modern studio.
