The Artec-508-W employs a single 8C woofer for low frequency reproduction. The M-34 compression driver provides brilliant highs. The birch plywood cabinet construction offers an ultra compact design which is available in black or white. Precise coverage and control in either the horizontal and vertical position is possible thanks to the symmetrical 80° horn geometry. The cabinets can be permanently installed by way of the optional «U» brackets and accessories which allow for multiple configurations. Four threaded fixing points for the AXW-1 adjustable wall mount and a pole mount socket augment adaptability. A robust steel grille internally lined with acoustically transparent filter cloth protects components.
