RX8

Years Active 2010-2014


A feat of ergonomic brilliance by our design team has engineered the greater poise and power of a large three-way loudspeaker into the RX8.

Its ultra-slim front profile conceals a deeper cabinet, which provides the volume needed for seismic levels of bass from dual 6” bass drivers. A single 6” bass/mid driver delivers naturally vibrant midrange sound, while a C-CAM® gold dome tweeter smoothly extends high frequency performance to a point way beyond the upper limit of the audible spectrum. Sheer control, open dynamics and wide bandwidth illuminate the sound of the RX8: a very big speaker disguised as a very slender one.


Technology

  • C-CAM® tweeter design with damped rear chamber, providing improved clarity and wider operating range for HD audio formats
  • Dual 6” C-CAM® bass and bass/ mid-range drivers incorporate RST® technology
  • Cast polymer bass chassis design for better rigidity and lower reflection properties
  • Dual chamber bass reflex
  • HiVe®II port technology for better transient response and tighter bass
  • Single bolt through driver system, for increased overall bracing and rigidity
  • Rigid 19mm MDF construction throughout, employing radial and cross-bracing techniques for high rigidity resulting in low cabinet colouration
  • Floor level terminal location for easy access and neat cable routing
  • Invisible magnetic grille fixing provides clean visual styling when used with the grille off
  • Selected premium quality wood veneers or high gloss piano finishes.
