Neumann KH 80 DSP 4" + 1" Active 2-Way Studio Monitor (White, Single)
Key Features
  • 4" Woofer
  • 1" Tweeter
  • Bi-Amped: LF 120W, HF 70W
  • MMD Waveguide
The white Neumann KH 80 DSP is a 2-way active studio monitor well suited for near-field monitoring and multichannel setups in music studios, broadcast centers and vans, as well as home studios and desktop audio applications. The KH 80 utilizes two amplifiers (120W and 70W) to power the 4" woofer and 1" tweeter respectively, an onboard DSP engine, a Mathematically Modeled Dispersion waveguide (MMD), an analog input, and an extensive range of optional mounting hardware. The DSP function is accessed via a standard IP network connection that allows the monitoring system to be controlled using the Neumann.Control app, which runs on a Windows/Mac computer or iOS/Android tablet. With the use of the latest acoustic and electronic simulation and measurement technologies, the KH 80 can be used in diverse acoustical conditions with any source equipment and in a wide variety of physical locations, ensuring accurate sound reproduction.

  • Setup:
    • 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 9 loudspeakers
    • Identify loudspeakers on the network that are in the room
    • Assign the identified loudspeakers to positions in the room
  • Align:
    • Guided Alignment: A process where you are asked very simple questions about the room and the loudspeaker position, and then the app adjusts the response of each loudspeaker accordingly
    • Manual Alignment: 8-band fully parametric equalizer for expert users. Expert users have complete freedom to adjust an 8-band parametric equalizer, levels and delays in each loudspeaker as they wish. Manual Alignment can also be used to edit Guided Alignments in a more detailed way
  • Operate:
    • System and alignment selection
    • Volume control, preset levels, dim, mute all
    • Groups, solos, mutes
    • Other system settings such as delay, standby level, and logo brightness
  • In-house simulated 1" tweeter with alloy fabric dome
    • Latest modeling techniques used to minimize non-linear (harmonic and intermodulation) distortion
    • Low-distortion high frequency reproduction
    • Powered by highly efficient 70W amplifier
  • Elliptical Mathematically Modeled Dispersion (MMD) waveguide
    • Smoother off-axis response
    • More forgiving of diverse acoustical environments
  • Wide horizontal dispersion
    • Freedom of movement across the mixing console
  • Narrow vertical dispersion
    • Reduces reflections off the mixing console

    • Dimmable for low-lighting conditions or behind the screen applications
  • In-house modeled long-throw composite sandwich 4" cone bass driver with Extremely Linear Force Factor (ELFF), magnetic shielding and flow optimized die cast basket
    • Damping of break up modes brings low distortion at high sound levels
    • Linear pistonic motor gives a very low harmonic distortion even at high excursions
    • Reduced air noise and improved rocking modes
    • Powered by highly efficient 120W amplifier
  • Robust metal grilles
    • Protects against mechanical damage
