The Sense 8 2-Way 8" Passive Loudspeaker from American Audio is a professional-quality loudspeaker that's ideal for portable or installed applications in medium-sized venues. The rigid plywood cabinet has a durable black paint finish and a powder-coated steel grille with acoustic foam for lasting durability and performance quality. The speaker's asymmetric design and 45° angle structure let you position the speaker vertically or horizontally for FoH or stage monitor usage. The rotatable quadratic horn ensures optimal acoustic performance, regardless of cabinet orientation.

The speaker has an 8" aluminum basket woofer with a 50mm voice coil, as well as a 1" compression tweeter with a 44mm voice coil. These drivers work together with the speaker's passive crossover system to deliver a wide frequency response with excellent dynamics. The tweeter is mounted on the horn to deliver a constant 90 x 60° directivity pattern to provide broad dispersion. The speaker has an LSM speaker management system and can accept up to 700W of peak amplifier power for a strong, distortion-free performance.

The rear panel has a pair of NL4 Speakon inputs for wide compatibility with a variety of sound systems or devices. The cabinet has a handle integrated into the top for convenient transportation. There are also M8 screws in each corner for attaching rigging eyes, ideal for suspended applications. A standard pole socket on the bottom panel allows you to mount the speaker on a stand or on top of a subwoofer.
