i-8 & i-8a Foreground Loudspeaker Systems

i-8-nl-01-

The highly flexible i-8 and i-8a two-way loudspeakers are ideal for mid-field applications where greater output and frequency response are required. Both models combine a professional-grade woofer with a 1-inch, silk-dome, ferrofluid tweeter. Both drivers are mated to a high-quality crossover network and housed in a robust, high-density wood enclosure with a rugged industrial-grade coating. Connections are quick and easy thanks to recessed, phoenix input terminals. Included mounting hardware ensures quick installation on a flat, horizontal or vertical surface. The i-8a adds an onboard, 70 watt amplifier.
