Trojan Aktiv8 Nearfield Active Monitor series.
Available in 3 versions with different size driver and power rating. A separate, matching active sub is also available in this range.
This is a really solid product producing an accurate and transparent sound that will stand favourable comparison to products costing treble. Coupling of the speaker cone to the air is influenced by unwanted diffraction when sound waves from the cabinet sides are scattered back into the nearfield creating phase distortion. The front surface is profiled, not flat. Titanium Tweeters provide effortless high frequencies right up to 20kHz. The fully braced cabinet reduces natural resonances. To increase LF efficiency the acoustic principle is bass reflex. Drivers are fed from individual amplifiers so problematic crossovers are eliminated. Input sensitivity -42dBu to +4dBu so can even be driven by anything. EQ controls for bass, treble and room acoustics correction. Input and Link output is via jack and XLR. An earth lift reduces ground loop problems to zero. Drivers are magnetically shielded so can be used close to TVs and video monitors. The amplifier is part of the back panel. Colour Grey with wooden sides. Individual speakers are totally self contained. Sold as a pair.
