Barefoot said the Footprint01 is an active three-way speaker that shares the same Thomas Barefoot signature Dual-Force technology as the company's MicroMain and MasterStack monitor lines. It has opposing sub woofers, dual ring radiator tweeter and Multi-Emphasis Monitor Emulation technology.

The Footprint01 two-way DSP crossover feeds dual amp modules that drive the subwoofers with 500W of power and deliver 150W to the mid- and high-frequency drivers. The midrange woofer is positioned above the tweeter in a distinctive speaker geometry that creates acoustic focus in the center of the cabinet.

Footprint01 allows the user to preview any mix as it would sound through alternate reference speakers by emulating the frequency, phase, transient response, dynamic compression and distortion characteristics of a variety of classic studio monitors.
