The black 8” Art 4 Series ART 408-A MK II Active 2-Way Speaker from RCF is an active, wide dispersion 2-way sound reinforcement speaker. It integrates a high power 400W digital amplifier, a complete electronic processor section and RCF low distortion, high power transducers. This system has output and vocal intelligibility. This 8” woofer features a 2.5” voice coil, very high efficiency and controlled bass reproduction. The 1” compression driver uses a new 1.4” voice coil dome design and optimized geometry radial phase plug.
This speaker is equipped with a 400W Digital Amplifier. The result of this is very high output, very low distortion, and natural sound. Each amplifier presents both XLR In/Out connectors and a jack input for maximum connection versatility. An easy to reach volume knob on the back allows you to set the overall volume of the speaker according to its application. A switchable EQ Mode makes it easier to select among 2 different equalization presets such as extended response switch, which slightly emphasizes the bass response for playback music and low volume applications or linear response switch, for using the speaker to amplify a live mixture. 3 status LEDs (Power / Signal / Status) are provided for monitoring the system.
An integrated DSP manages crossover, equalization, soft limiter, compressor, and dynamic bass boost. This speaker cabinet is molded on a special polypropylene composite material and is designed to dampen down vibrations even at maximum volume settings. The cabinet shape allows this speaker to be used in stage monitor configuration also. At the bottom of the speaker, a rugged stainless steel pole mount has been provided for deploying the speaker on stands or subwoofers. The woofer is protected from a strong, powder coated, metal grille. The cabinet features 2 M10 threaded fly points and an ergonomic top handle for easy transportation.
