The PS8 features advanced NEXO designed low magnetic emission Neodymium drivers, making the PS8 extremely light and compact while usable next to magnetically-sensitive professional video or computer equipment. The dispersion, architecture and weight balance are designed to provide uncompromised PA and stage monitor performance from a single speaker, and background and foreground music playback applications are equally well-served.
Like the new PS10-R2 and PS15-R2, this flexibility is realized by a proprietary constant directivity asymmetrical dispersion horn, easily configurable (by users) in four positions by 90° rotations. Coupled with the horn’s unique progressive horizontal (50° to 100°) and vertical (55°) dispersion, the most suitable pattern can be selected for vertical or horizontal PA usage or wedge monitoring. The PS8’s 2-way passive 8Ω design employs a single amplifier channel to deliver bi-amped performance, reducing system cost, size and complexity, and a new grille design increases durability while fully accommodating use as a wedge.
