The award-winning Wavefront W8C is lightweight and
compact. It can be rigged quickly to deliver outstanding power
and performance in smaller configurations than was previously
possible with other loudspeakers. Audience experience is
enhanced by true musicality, warmth and intelligibility - even at
high SPL's.
Ground-breaking three-way technology marries a low-mid
horn-loaded 12" (300mm) cone drive unit with a unique
combination of 6.5" (165mm) high-mid driver loaded by
toroidal phase plug and horn plus a 1" (25mm) exit HF device,
optimised for very high frequencies. The result - a remarkably
clean, transparent sound, far lower distortion and increased
overall output, without pushing any element to the limit.
