Dutch and Dutch 8c Active 2-Way Monitor - Single, Black/Black

Active monitor unparalleled in neutrality, precision, and in-room tonal balance - black baffle with solid oak black cabinet
MFR# 8C-BK-BK

Product Description

By design, loudspeakers and studio monitors color any signal they reproduce—simply by passing through the internal components, the frequency response of the sound is changed. The Dutch and Dutch 8c isn’t like most speakers. Featuring a revolutionary design with constant directivity above 100 Hz, the 8c offers unparalleled neutrality, precision and tonal balance.

CONSTANT DIRECTIVITY

In order to provide higher sound pressure levels, loudspeaker horns are designed to direct the sound towards the listener, which often causes higher frequencies to sound louder depending on where you’re sitting. The 8c uses a unique design that provides constant directivity from 100 Hz upwards, delivering unrivaled accuracy and clarity. That means you can listen to music exactly as it was intended no matter where you are in the room. Since the 8c offers ±0.5 dB frequency response above 35 Hz, you can enjoy accurate low-end without buying an external subwoofer.

How many times have you leaned over to tweak a piece of outboard gear, only for the sound to change right before your ears as your hand touches the knob? With the 8c you can finally make accurate adjustments from anywhere in the room. The 8c allows you to unchain yourself from your mix position. Sit back in your chair, get up and stretch your legs—you can even lay down on the couch without the sound changing thanks to 8c’s unique constant directivity design.

INTELLIGENT DESIGN

The 8c uses a proprietary waveguide tweeter, a dedicated 8” mid-range driver, and two rear-facing high excursion, boundary-coupled bass drivers to achieve superb acoustical reproduction as low as 35 Hz. Featuring high-end digital audio converters, built-in amplifiers, and active room matching digital signal processors, the 8c is able to accurately reproduce signals with crystal clarity as loud as 106 dB.

Control multiple monitors simultaneously with the D&D control app by creating a local area network using the dedicated AES3 input. You can adjust gain, speaker placement settings, and even update the firmware on every monitor at once from your mix position.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
