HiVi X8A is a high performance professional active monitor speaker. The system is designed for studio near-field monitoring, multimedia and ultra-thin TV. X8A combines cutting-edge electro-acoustic technology and professional active filter design. Compared to other similar size speakers, X8A has a remarkable low-frequency extension, larger dynamic range and higher sound pressure output.
As a professional active monitor speaker, X8A can be conveniently worked with various audio sources. The X8A's sound quality, especially its low frequency and acoustic dynamic, is as good as large floor standing speakers, but it’s size is much smaller and can work under the desktop environment. The X8A acoustic design is optimized for desktop environment, making it become a top level desktop speaker system.
X8A adopts professional active filter technology and is equipped with one long excursion 8-inch woofer and one 26mm metal dome tweeter. With the help of finite element CAD design, the X8A cabinet horn can ensure smooth and accurate on-axial and off-axis frequency response, which offers an accurate sound image positioning.
The frequency response of X8A is 35Hz-20kHz (±2.5dB, free space), total output power of each X8A is 130W RMS. For stereo configuration, the maximum sound level output can reach 118dB SPL at a distance of 1 meter. Compared to other speakers with similar cabinet volume, X8A possesses an excellent low-frequency extension, larger dynamic range, lower distortion, higher sound pressure output and superb directivity, acoustic response has no attenuation in ±15 degree horizontally.
X8A has a professional frequency adjustment function that is able to modify frequency response based on different environments. Users can adjust low frequency (200Hz +2/0/-2dB), mid range (500Hz 0/-2/-4dB) and high frequency (10kHz +1/0/-1dB). In addition, X8A has low frequency cut-off function which is easy to match with different subwoofers, The cut-off frequency is Flat/60Hz/80Hz, when switched to Flat, the speaker has the lowest 35Hz frequency extension.
X8A uses an egg-shaped low-diffraction cabinet design that is space efficient. A bended port tube design provides natural low-frequency output and minimizes noise distortion. The cabinet is made of die-cast aluminum which is durable and impact resistant; its surface is matte finished with scratch resistant coating. This sturdy cabinet is suitable for use in various indoor environments.
X8A is also equipped with a damping rubber base to keep the cabinet in place as well as reduce distortion and unwanted vibrations. This base enables adjustment of the cabinet angle so that the speaker axial direction is easily aligned to users, providing them with a better listening experience. The X8A set includes a universal rack for easy adjustment of speaker direction. A variety of installation options include desktop, floor standing or wall-mounting.
As a professional active monitor speaker system, the sound quality of X8A can even rival floor standing speakers. Users can achieve the sound effect of a larger floor standing speakers in desktop environment. X8A can be conveniently worked with various audio sources and forms hi-end music system.
X8A not only provides accurate audio reference for professionals, but also reproduces hi-end sound for home audio enthusiasts. X8A features a unique egg-shaped appearance, optimized acoustic structure and leading industrial design. X8A is a full-function professional active monitor speaker with superb sound quality.
