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