Void Acoustics release Air 8
- December 2016
Void Acoustics release Air 8; a compact full range loudspeaker designed for permanent installation in small bars, lounges and restaurants. Equally at home as an area fill when used within a larger main system or as a stand-alone option for the smaller venue, the Air 8 allows small and medium sized venues to enjoy the high quality sound and cutting edge aesthetics of the Air Series in a more compact format.
The principles of the Air 8 are simple; take highly refined in house designed components and marry them with a modern day work of art. Combine that in an install friendly package with endless possibilities of enclosure colour to make it the only choice for those seeking perfection.
The Air 8 features an 8” low frequency driver with a 1” coaxially mounted neodymium high frequency compression driver providing increased efficiency to make its compact and stylish form a must have accessory for any modern visually conscious venue with something to say.
"The inspiration for the Air 8 came from a requirement for an ultra compact full range loudspeaker that could be used in larger spaces with an innovative and inspired aesthetic. This called for the invention of a totally new 8" transducer that operates at very low temperatures, even at the power levels required to produce its extremely high output levels. A front facing aluminium heat sink with embedded HF horn was developed to dissipate all of the heat though the front of the assembly.
I was totally shocked at the outcome, a fact borne out by the many listeners who have been left speechless as they fail to get their heads around the monstrous output emanating from such a compact enclosure. The Air 8s appearance was also high on my agenda. I finally decided to go for a sophisticated aesthetic with abstract minimalist undertones." Rog Mogale - Creative Director at Void Acoustics
