2-way Passive speaker

The ESD8 is a compact passive 2-way, high output full-range loudspeaker incorporating an 8" trans-coil woofer and a 1” compression driver coupled to a wide dispersion horn. Presented conservatively in a unique angled low-profile Baltic birch enclosure and designed to present exceptional speech and music definition, the ESD8 provides a smooth hi-fidelity response and delivers a natural sound quality and level that is superior to many larger competing products.
