Symphonic Acoustics has unveiled the new Dual 8V (2X8V) studio monitors, with each pair shipping with a curated selection of power and DSP options. The 2X8V is the result of a design and manufacturing collaboration between the company and George Augspurger, John Storyk and others.
“Our new Dual 8 system 2X8V monitors are perfect for rooms that require speakers capable of delivering large format sound pressure levels, but in a smaller form factor,” says PK Pandey, founding partner of Symphonic Acoustics. “We worked in close collaboration with George Augspurger, John Storyk, WSDG Founding Partner, Grammy-award winning engineer Renato Cipriano and REDI Acoustics throughout the design process, and we feel that we have achieved the perfect balance of form and function in a cabinet that is just 13” wide.”
The sound signature of the 2X8V is designed to offer an extended bass response, punchy midrange and a smooth high end. The midrange response is the result of a refined horn design. “We’re using a combination of different high-quality manufacturing materials and have made improvements in internal cabinetry design — particularly, how the horn is constructed,” explains Pandey. “Also, in close collaboration with George Augspurger, we made refinements to the cabinet while improving horn materializations. This has resulted in improved sonic performance, with increased cabinet stability.”
The 2X8V power and DSP package that can be customized and tuned to accommodate its listening environment. “We chose to partner with various manufacturers because they represent the pinnacle of technology in their respective areas of expertise,” Pandey notes. “During the testing phase we evaluated dozens of amplification and DSP systems, and at the end of the day, we wanted to work with the companies that we considered to be the most innovative and responsive to our needs.”
Available in both high gloss and matte finishes, the systems are offered in several colors that include the signature Metallic Grey and Copper. Symphonic can facilitate soffit mounting if required.
