I run a pair of presonus eris e4.5 monitors off my MacBook Air (up to date OS) using a common AUX cable plug.

They are great but the space is use is large so I wanted to increase the number of speakers (I recon a pair of additional speakers would be ideal).

Can I do this simply by getting some kind of aux plug splitter?

Or could I daisy chain the speakers as long as both master speakers have power?

In which case would that need some other monitor option (I mean, not the Eris 4.5)?

Thanks

Best answer

You need bigger studio monitors with enough power to fill the space. 

Eris E5XT or E7XT may be in order. https://www.presonus.com/products/Studio-Speakers

If your space is a large room or venue, you may need to consider using Live Sound speakers instead such as the AIR Series:

Contact our sales team or your local PreSonus dealer for technical advice on speakers for your space.
