Audio system solutions specialists EAW has announced additions to its MicroWedge Series of stage monitors.
The MicroWedge8 (MW8) and MicroWedge10 (MW10) are a small-format continuation of the MW line from EAW. Although smaller than the MW12 and MW15, the MW8 and MW10 offer volume levels and voicing that are designed to rival full-size industry-standard 12-inch and 15-inch monitors from other manufacturers.
The MW8 and MW10 are suitable for applications that require the high level of performance, audio quality, inherent feedback stability, smooth coverage and ergonomic design of the MW12 and MW15 without the need for MW12/MW15’s levels of power handling and size. They are designed for mid-to-high-volume rock/alternative performers, houses of worship, theatres, edge of stage fills, corporate shows/events and presenters. They can also be used for front-of-house or monitor engineers looking for a live monitoring option on the console meter bridge.
The MW8 is the smallest in the MW line of products, featuring an 8-inch woofer, and the MW10 features a 10-inch woofer. Both units’ coaxial designs pair the respective woofers with a 3-in (diaphragm) coaxially-mounted HF compression driver, providing 90-degree horizontal dispersion.
Jeff Rocha, EAW senior director of engineering, added, “Our new MicroWedge8 and 10 are a direct result of feedback from our key end users in the market. We wanted to create smaller versions of our MW12 and MW15 with the same voicing and relative power, without sacrificing any of the performance features that make those larger boxes so successful.”
