DVS 8P

Two-way passive loudspeaker

Overview

01
Ultra-compact powerful (127 dB peak SPL @ 1 m) loudspeaker system with an 8″ (LF) woofer and a 1″ (HF) compression driver; ferrofluid cooled coil
02
2-way design (8 Ohm) with built-in passive filter for easy low-cost powering by means of just one amplifier channel
03
Extremely linear frequency response and phase response of just ±45° from 250 Hz to 20 kHz
04
High spoken word “projection” for precise reproduction with high intelligibility
05
Designed for use as a stage monitor in a horizontal position (with two angles), as is the entire DVS range
06
Internally braced cabinet for the utmost sturdiness, unaffected by sound “colouring” due to resonance

Description

DVS 8P is a wide range 2-way loudspeaker system with passive low-loss crossover. It comprises a 20 cm high power handling woofer for low and mid frequencies, and a 1″ compression driver for high frequencies, ferrofluid cooled and loaded with a controlled directivity horn enabling the enclosure to be used indistinctly in either a vertical or a horizontal position that it features the required characteristic of “projecting” the mid frequency range, ensuring higher intelligibility for the speech it reproduces.

The DVS 8P system has phase inversion low frequency loading and a tuned enclosure. The system’s uniform directivity from 500 Hz to 4 kHz has an average dispersion of 90° horizontal and 110° vertical and average wide-range sound coverage from 500 Hz to 10 kHz is 90° horizontal and 93° vertical.
The acoustic reproduced bandwidth is 48 Hz to 18.5 kHz at -10 dB. The frequency response of the complete system is +/-3 dB from 75 Hz to 17.5 kHz. Flown in free-field it has high average wide-range sensitivity, producing 93 dB SPL 1 W / 1 m, (127 dB SPL peak). The maximum allowed power is 250 Watt AES (1000 peak).

The enclosure cabinet has a trapezoidal shape and is built by high quality 15 mm baltic phenolic glued plywood further strengthened by bracing glued inside, which also eliminates any resonance of the sides while the outer finish is in scratch-resistant, waterproof black paint.

The cabinet has two M8 threaded mounting points to facilitate both vertical and horizontal flying by means of the appropriate optional accessories, and other two points to which an adaptor can be fitted for use with an (optional) tripod stand. The snap-mounting protective front grille is made from painted steel mesh.

DVS 8P has been discontinued. Equivalent products are Vegas 8 CX (non powered) and DVS 8P SP (self-powered)
