NEXO has always been well-known for its compact and very powerful versatile point source speakers, notably the worldwide reference PS Series. This expertise is now applied to the ePS8, featuring a high excursion neodymium 8” speaker coupled with a 1.4“ diaphragm compression driver, in a slick and discrete design.
Advanced NEXO technology included
The ePS8 enclosure uses a 15 mm birch plywood shell. The result is a robust lightweight cabinet with exceptionally good sound quality. IP55 protection level is reached. Its bass reflex acoustic design offers a very clean and deep low end response even at high levels. The high excursion 8” LF driver uses a 2“ voice coil while the HF compression driver has a 1.4” diaphragm, both ensuring a high peak output level. The heart of the ePS8 is its Asymmetrical Dispersion Constant Directivity horn design, also known as the “PS” Horn.
Precise matching directivity
A satisfactory audience experience often necessitates compromise between the wide, short throw coverage required by listeners closest to the stage, and the narrow, long throw coverage required by those at the back of the venue. The asymmetrical horns in ePS speakers are engineered so that vertical coverage is narrower above the horn axis than below. Easy for the user to rotate, this ensures optimum directivity for any fixed installation. The connection at the back of the speaker is done through two (in/out) pairs of screws terminal blocks, while the included IP cover protects the connectors from moisture in outdoor applications.
A large set of compatible accessories
On each side of the cabinet, two M6 with 80 mm pitch + one M10 fittings will connect the ePS6 to U bracket, bumper or eye-bolts. The back of the speaker is fitted with 3x M6 with 70 mm pitch to connect wallmount in both horizontal and vertical positions. Finally dedicated accessories exist to hang the ePS8 below the optional eLS400 or eLS600 subwoofers, leading to a discrete wideband system.
Perfect phase aligment
ePS8 acoustic phase response is NEXO phase signature allowing inter-operability between all NEXO speakers at all crossover points, except for the monitor setups where latency is minimized.
