Equator's D8 monitors deliver the crystal clear mid-range detail of the D5s but with higher SPL and much bigger bass response, designed specifically to deliver a much bigger sound while maintaining the same, extreme level of detail.

These coaxial studio monitors feature an expensive coaxially designed transducer with an 8" woofer and a 1" silk tweeter. Frequency response is 44hz to 20khz and a low-distortion digital amplifier provides plenty of punch. The internal DSP allows for precise adjustments to deliver a much bigger sound while maintaining the extreme level of detail that the D5 has been proven to provide.

The D8 has pro features that include balanced XLR and balanced/unbalanced TRS inputs; a calibrated stepped level sensitivity control; a 3 alternate voice boundary selection switch; an all wood cabinet, including a wood front baffle for optimum performance; a fully extended 2.5" perfectly tuned front port, providing superior and accurate extended low-end response. And because the port is on the front baffle, the D8's can be positioned close to a wall with no fear of the low-end being choked.

The coaxial transducer design of the system incorporates a steep 4th order crossover along with a newly applied DSP aided group delay filter in order to deliver a phase accurate detailed mid-range with unobstructed clarity in that complex 900Hz - 3 kHz range. Guitars, voices, strings, horns, & reverb trails are very clearly and accurately portrayed and any mid-range anomalies in the source material can be easily determined and addressed. Because of our matched transducer output, mid-range mix elements can be positioned in the stereo field without the fear of being misplaced. The D8 represents the next step forward in detailed clarity.

The D8 monitors also feature Equator Audio's Zero-Point Reference, custom-designed coaxial Digitally-Controlled Transducers™ along with internal DSP to provide a matched output curve for every unit. This allows for accurate no-shift imaging. The DSP allowed pin-point accurate adjusting during the voicing process. The voicing was aided by award-winning recording engineers that referenced their hit mixes for voicing considerations. The final D8 pre-set voicing curve is optimal for mid-range detail as well as accurate bass placement and low frequency reproduction. With high-quality components, internal DSP, 100w of power, and 106 dB of SPL, the D8s deliver a large trustworthy crystal clear audio image.
