Description

The 8M is a two-way, high efficiency, passive loudspeaker. It is designed as a compact high performance system for the reproduction of speech and music program material.

The 8M has a one-inch exit compression driver coupled to a 75 X 75 degree wooden waveguide horn reproducing smooth high frequencies, and an 8” cone transducer in a tuned enclosure for the low frequencies. The high quality passive network operates very efficiently, also providing EQ points for a flat frequency response. The sturdy multi-ply plywood enclosure, with a multi-layered catalyzed Polyurea finish, is designed to withstand the most demanding portable applications. A perforated, powder coated steel grill with a high transmission ratio offers excellent protective properties.

The 8M is a portable configuration and has a recessed handle with a stand mount. The 8M comes in a black finish. The 8M excels in a myriad of diverse applications requiring a compact multi-angle enclosure, and offers extraordinary performance and value.
