h-8 System
h-Class 8 Inch High Definition Full Range Systems
Preliminary Specification Sheet
h-8 Features
• Wide 100º x 40º coverage
• Neodymium HF compression driver with Truextent® beryllium
diaphragm for exceptional high frequency clarity and output
• Dual channel, high efficiency amplifiers deliver ample power for
both transducers while eliminating the need for noisy cooling
• Integrated DSP with SystemVUE network control and monitoring
• Pole mount, integrated hanging points and optional rigging
hardware for deployment as a main system, within multi-cabinet
arrays, or in a variety of support configurations.
h-8 Applications
• Theatrical sound reinforcement
• Portable and installed audio-visual systems
• Front fill or under-balcony systems
• Themed entertainment venues
• Houses of worship
• Conference centers and corporate AV
The two-way h-8 brings the pristine sound quality and versatility
of the larger h-12 and h-15 systems to a compact package ideal for
applications where space is at a premium and exceptional output-tosize ratio is critical.
Sophisticated onboard DSP and
networking capabilities come
