The PS8 Loudspeaker features new Nexo designed low
magnetic emission Neodymium drivers, making the PS8
extremely light and compact while usable next to sensitive
professional video or computer equipment. The dispersion,
architecture and weight balance of the PS8 Loudspeaker are
designed to provide both exceptional PA and stage monitor
performance from a single product without compromise. This
flexibility is realized by a proprietary constant directivity
asymmetrical dispersion horn, easily rotated in four positions
by the user. 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 2-way passive 8 Ohm
design uses a single amplifier channel to deliver bi-amped
performance for less money, space and complexity.
The PS8 Loudspeaker System is the latest addition to Nexo’s
acclaimed PS Series; versatile, compact, full-range
loudspeakers tailored for a wide range of touring and installed
sound reinforcement applications. Like all Nexo products, the
PS8 Loudspeaker and optional LS400 Subwoofer are designed
to work with advanced electronic processors, guaranteeing
consistent performance and reliability of the highest standard.

SYSTEM OPERATION
Electronic Controller
The PS8 Loudspeaker must be used with a Nexo Controller (PS8 TD analogue, NX241 digital or PS8AMP
integrated power amplifier). Use without a properly connected Controller will result in poor sound quality
and may damage the components.
Dispersion configuration
After removing the quick-release front grille, the HF Horn can be rotated to one of 4 positions
for dispersion configuration.
Subbass
The PS8 Loudspeaker can be used with or without the optional LS400 Subwoofer. Active two-way operation
with the LS400 is included in the PS8TD, NX241 or PS8AMP. One LS400 matches 2 x PS8, additional LS400
may be used for enhanced effect.
Speaker Cables
The PS8 is wired 2- & 2+ on Speakon connectors, LS400 on 1- & 1+. Loop through Speakons are present
on both products. Single identical cables can thus be used to loop through combinations of up to 2 x PS8
& 1 x LS400 in no particular order.
SHIPPING & ORDERING
Packaging
PS8s are packaged as pairs with or without PS8 TDController in a single box.
Shipping Weight & Volume
2 x PS.8U = 16 kg (35.3 lbs) 0.109 cu m (3.85 cu ft).
2 x PS.8U + 1 x PS.8UTD = 19 kg (6.61 lbs) 0.109 cu m (3.85 cu ft).

[a] Response curves & data : Anechoic Far Field for the PS8 + PS8TD. Half-Space Anechoic radiation for the LS400 + PS8TD.
[b] Sensitivity & Peak SPL data : these will depend on spectral distribution and crest factor of program material. Measured with band limited Pink Noise. Nominal refers to
Voice Decade (300 Hz - 3 kHz), Wideband to the specified ±3dB range. Data are for speaker + processor + recommended amplifier combinations. Peak SPL is at
clipping of recommended amplifier.
[c] Directivity curves & data : obtained by computer treatment on off axis response curves.
