Experience a Studio Monitor Like No Other - The Barefoot Sound MiniMain12

The MiniMain12 is Barefoot's Flagship 4-way Active Monitor, an incredibly bold speaker with vanishing low distortion, breathtakingly wide dynamic range, ultra-fast transient response - plus their amazing MEME™ (Multi Emphasis Monitor Emulation™) technology.


  • 2,000 Total Watts of Power
  • Eight 12” aluminum cone Dual-Force™ Subwoofers
  • Bass Response Down to 20 Hz
  • MEME™ Technology


The MiniMain12 is a 4-way active system with 7 drive units housed in sealed enclosures spanning 20Hz to 40kHz with vanishingly low distortion, breathtaking dynamic range and ultra-fast transient response. Every driver has an under-hung voice coil moving inside an advanced geometry motor that enables it make extremely long linear excursions. The ring radiator tweeter is incredibly detailed and produces very wide dispersion out to its highest frequencies. The aluminum cone subwoofers, woofers and midranges radiate as perfect pistons to at least 2.5 octaves beyond their respective bandwidths. 

Barefoot has teamed up with the brilliant Bruno Putzeys of Hypex to develop the powerful and completely transparent amplifier stage of the MM12. Melding the system together is a groundbreaking DSP crossover.   With beautifully designed high end converts and cutting edge proprietary filtering techniques the MiniMain12 produces such a seamless and coherent wavefront that, if you dare, you can actually listen to this speaker from less than 3 feet away with no sonic compromise. The MiniMain12 works perfectly out to far field distances as well, producing SPLs equivalent to big mains. 

MEME™(Multi Emphasis Monitor Emulation™) Technology

No other monitor in the world can match the MM12’s linearity and transparency, but if you did wish to do it, the MM12 actually has the capability to emulate those other speakers! Despite the advantages of using high resolution monitors, Barefoot realizes that many engineers continue to use their NS10M’s † and mix cubes as secondary references. 

So why not make the MiniMain12 sound and translate like those speakers as well? The MiniMain12 can capture the essence of how they behave and translate, modeling their frequency, phase and transient responses, dynamic compression and even some of their distortion components. If you know how to work on these speaker you will feel very comfortable working on the MM12’s emulation settings.
