The V8 is a 3-way passive design housing 2 x 10" LF drivers, one hornloaded 8" MF driver and two 1.4" exit HF compression drivers with 2.5" voicecoils mounted to a dedicated waveshaping device.  The symmetrical dipolar arrangement of the neodymium LF drivers around the centrally mounted coaxial MF and HF components allows a smooth overlap of the adjacent frequency bands in the crossover design.  This results in an exceptional 80° horizontal constant directivity dispersion control nominally being maintained down to 250Hz.  The mechanical and acoustical design enables flown vertical arrays of up to twenty four loudspeakers.  It can be used in columns of purely V8 loudspeakers or combined with V12s and / or with V-SUBs.

The V8 cabinet is constructed from marine plywood and has an impact and weather protected PCP (Polyurea Cabinet Protection) finish.  The front of the loudspeaker cabinet is protected by a rigid metal grill backed by an acoustically transparent foam.  Each side panel incorporates a handle, while two additional recessed grips are provided at the rear bottom of the cabinet.
