Void Acoustics has released Air 8; a compact full range loudspeaker designed for permanent installation in small bars, lounges and restaurants.

The Air 8 is equally at home as an area fill when used within a larger main system or as a stand-alone option for smaller venues.

The loudspeaker features an 8in low frequency driver with a 1in coaxially mounted neodymium high frequency compression driver for increased efficiency, producing a max output of 119 dB continuous and 121 dB peak.

"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 8in transducer that operates at very low temperatures, even at the power levels required to produce its extremely high output levels,” said Rog Mogale, Void Acoustics’ creative director. “A front facing aluminium heat sink with embedded HF horn was developed to dissipate all of the heat though the front of the assembly.

“The Air 8s appearance was also high on my agenda. I finally decided to go for a sophisticated aesthetic with abstract minimalist undertones."
