New Eris E8 two-way active 8″ monitors
It offers a clean and clear treble response with a highly controlled and precise bass response. Combined with Kevlar low-frequency converters, low-mass silk dome tweeters and sensitive Class AB amplifiers, acoustic tuning possibilities have resulted in an active monitor that is extremely versatile and adaptable.
The case of the E8 is made of vinyl-laminated MDF, ventilated from the front. The 8″ kevlar woofer is paired with a 75W class AB amplifier. For high frequencies the 1.25″ silk dome tweeter is driven by a 65W class AB amplifier. E8 series speakers can deliver a clean 105dB of power.
Eris E8s have both balanced XLR, balanced 1/4″ TRS and unbalanced RCA type inputs.
Eris monitors offer 3 EQ controls in the Acoustic setting: High, Mid and Low Cutoff. With these settings, your monitor can be adjusted according to the place where it is placed. Low Cutoff is also useful when used with sub basses.
High control is a shelving filter that can increase or decrease signals above 4.5 kHz by as much as 6 dB. The mid control is a peak filter that can increase or decrease frequencies one octave above and below 1 kHz. Low Cutoff, on the other hand, acts as a filter that cuts frequencies below 80 or 100 Hz with a slope of 12 dB/octave. This control is especially useful when the E8s are used with a sub bass.
This three position Acoustic field control is a second order, low shelving filter that cuts 2 or 4 dB at frequencies below 800 Hz. Acoustic field control is used to compensate for the high bass response of monitors, especially when placed near walls or corners.
With RF shielding, radio frequency waves affect the circuits of the monitor and an audible noise is prevented. Eris monitors have high temperature protection, output current limiting and subsonic protection. In addition, there is a “soft startup” feature to prevent the “pop” sound heard when the monitors are turned on.
