EVE Audio SC208 (Pair)
Active 2-Way 8" Studio Monitors
Do you need to hear a tight and full frequency bass in your mixes but don't want to invest in a subwoofer just yet? Then the SC208 is probably for you. It's the last in our two-way system series, starting with the smaller SC204.
It features the same ease of use and detailed timbre reproduction of all other two-way monitors. But with a larger woofer and more powerful amplifiers, the SC208 will probably be used as a main speaker in a lot of professional and home-studios.
If you're looking for a capable and detailed set of above-average size monitors try the SC208. You will probably be surprised.
With the SC208, you will be able to extend your bass frequency response down to 36 Hz. Our custom-made 8" SilverCone woofer driven by our 1.5" voice coil will guarantee that you will not run out of bass response when it comes to the critical listening and comparison of your mixes. The result is a very tight and dynamic bass, along with the usual greater linear excursion provided in every other EVE Audio model.
Our PWM amplifier, with protection-limiting, is able to deliver a short-term output power of 150W for a maximum output level of 112 dB (SPL @ 1m). So you can be sure that there will be plenty of power to make critical and precise judgements over your mixes.
The SC208 also uses our proprietary AMT (Air Motion Transformer) RS2. The RS2 stands for Ribbon System 2, meaning it has a bigger front plate and a larger magnet driving the motion with the utmost efficiency.
As with every other EVE Audio speaker, you get both balanced XLR inputs and unbalanced RCA inputs for greater convenience.
With every EVE Audio speaker, you also get high resolution DSP electronics. One push knob operation and you will have access to accurate volume control and several different filter settings that will help you tailor your monitors to the way you work.
If you always avoid digital processing, we've got you covered. The DSP engine is supported with a high quality A/D converter (24bit/192kHz) from Burr-Brown, which delivers a pristine signal to the DSP section. And since the PWM amplifiers are directly connected to the DSP, no additional conversion is necessary.
Bass Port Design
It's all in the geometry. One of the downside effects of port compression is bass distortion. As you turn up the volume, the efficiency of the port reduces and distortion will increase.
We opted for a large rear rectangular port with no hard edges for our bass port designs. That's one of the reasons EVE monitors have a high efficiency on the lower frequencies.
The results? High sound pressures with tight and punchy bass frequencies that don't cause port distortion. Crank up the volume, and EVE will deliver a round bass. And with no holes to look at every time you glance at your speakers.
