Brings a whole new dimension to the direct field monitoring experience.
With the Event Studio Precision 8 Powered Monitors, the engineers at Event Electronics have come up with a totally new design that surpasses anything they've done to date. The Studio Precision 8 monitors bring a whole new dimension to the direct field monitoring experience.
Tight, punchy, in-your-chest bass
First on the list for Event was a commitment to provide unsurpassed low-frequency response. That spawned the development of a custom 8" polypropylene cone driver (complete with neodymium magnet)--an exceptional performer that boasts ultralow distortion characteristics, incredible strength, and more output-per-watt than traditional woofer designs.
Next, the enclosure had to have dual ports. But not just any ported enclosure would do. Hidden behind the front baffle is a unique port design that provides exceptional low-frequency coupling into the room, low-distortion output, and superior low-frequency transient response. You can truly feel the tremendous LF response--not just hear it.
The combination of the drivers, ports, and enclosure allow accurate reproduction of percussion and bass instruments without introducing new overtones or artificially hyped frequencies.
Soaring highs, expansive soundscape
The soft-dome neodymium high-frequency driver produces a broad, flat radiation pattern that doesn't require corrective equalization (which adds tonal coloration and robs an amplifier of headroom). The driver creates an expanded stereo soundstage that's enormous and has incredibly precise imaging with even subtle panning movements easily discernable.
The biamplified Studio Precision 8 speakers deliver 280W per speaker (200W LF driver/80W HF driver) so you'll always have plenty of headroom for even the most demanding applications. The amplifier circuitry uses low-noise semiconductors and audio-grade film capacitors, giving the system enhanced dynamic range as well as exceptionally low noise and low distortion characteristics. Toroidal transformers greatly reduce mechanical and electrical noise.
Topping things off are continuously variable input sensitivity plus low- and high-frequency trim controls. There's also a switchable 80Hz high-pass filter for bass management in surround-sound applications. And for easy
connection, there are both balanced XLR and 1/4" inputs.
3/4" MDF cabinets ensure that the sound emanating from the speakers is free from artificial tones created by unwanted resonance.
- LF driver: Magnetically shielded, 8" mineral-filled polypropylene cone with neodymium magnet, 1-1/2" diameter high-temperature voice coil, and damped rubber surround
- HF driver: Magnetically shielded, one-inch diameter ferrofluid-cooled soft dome neodymium radiator
- Frequency response: 35Hz-20kHz, ±3dB, ref. 500Hz
- Amplifier power: Biamplified, 280W, (200W LF driver/80W HF driver) toroidal transformer
- Crossover: 2.6kHz, active asymmetrical fourth-order
- Controls: Continuously variable input sensitivity; continuously variable high-frequency trim; continuously variable low-frequency trim; switchable 80Hz second-order high-pass filter
- Inputs: balanced XLR and 1/4"
- Indicators: Power-on/Clip LED
- Protection: RF interference, output current limiting, over temperature, turn on/off transient, subsonic filter, internal fuse, and magnetic shielding
- 12-1/2"W x 16"H x 11-13/16"D

I use these everyday for mixing, tracking...even watching movies. I love these monitors they sound even BETTER than they look. My mixes have improved simply due to the accuracy of these monitors. If you can afford them there worth EVERY PENNY!
I went monitor shopping just before these were available but was able to spend a lot of time (through a friend) trying these and all the "big names". I really was in no mood to have to upgrade for a long time afterwards and wanted to get it right. Considering the problems involved with judging monitors I expected to wind up with more questions than answers...I was wrong. These monitors exhibited all the attributes I thought I would have to pay ultra big bucks to have. The lows were accurately represented way way down. The mids were detailed and the highs were smooth and accurate...and the advertisements about a wide sweet spot seem to indeed to be true. Working with them over long sessions was non-fatiguing as well. Imaging is excellent...make very small pan adustments with your eyes closed and you can "see" the image moving clearly. My mixes have never translated as well! For the times you really want to "move some air" there's plenty of power with the boxes rated at something like 280 watts each. I mix at conservative levels...but it IS fun once in a while. The only speaker I liked as much was a pair of big-names that would have cost around $4,000 for the pair. I've found my monitors for sure!
These are great. Iv gone from the krk rokit 5's, to the dynaudio bm6a's to these. These are LESS money than the dynaudio's and deliver a WAY more accurate mix and are WAY less fatiguing on the ear. These are worth every penny.
Although I hadn't had a pair of monitors designed for studio use before I acquired the SP-8A's, I have listened to a lot of speakers (NS-10's, Dynaudio, KRK, H8R24, ADAM, etc.) and I am quite impressed. The level of detail when critically listening has made these speakers a pleasure to listen to, and I have never been frustrated with thier translation charactaristics to other systems. Honestly, I had music playing while I was in another room and when I opened the door I thought there was a bass player several floors below my apartment who had heard my music and started playing in time. The low-frequency response is very natural (yet present and never woofy), a trait I have come to appreciate more and more after this purchase. I would highly recommend them, especially for their price point. I think they kick the H8R24's out in terms of detail, translation, and raw power. And they just sound really nice to listen to (more fun=better).
I recently bought four of these babies to create the "field" speakers on my new 5.1 studio, and WOW!....I have never heard such amazing sound out of any of the speakers I tried...Even Mackie!....and that is what I thought I was going to buy when I first started researching monitors. The chest thumping impact that these monitors produce gives my Hard rock, and metal clients, a bad case of open check book.....makes my work sound even better....that will pay for these puppies in no time...I would recomend these monitors for anyone who can afford them...
Just absolutely amazing! These monitors are the real deal!
A friend and I have tracked everything from drums, bass, sax, violin, vocals guitars, piano and synth pads, etc... using a set of Event's PS8's. He added the SP8's to his repitior of gear, and no offense to you guys at Event, but holy cow, what an upgrade! IU've also tracked through the Mackie 824's, and for the price, there's absolutely no comparison!!! Oh yes, I will have some...
I recently purchased these speakers for my home studio and they make a HUGE difference in all aspects of my production. The sound spectrum is increadible! Being flat response, every little nuance of sound is laid out before you in rich detail. If you close your eyes when your listening, it sounds like there is a band playing right in front of you. You can't tell they are coming from the speakers. I cannot talk these up enough.
I own these monitors and I must say that they are great. I hear every thing and I do mean every thing even sounds from other peoples cd I put in to listen to ... wow I love'em so much I'll be getting a second pair soon.
I did some pretty exhaustive comparison shopping before I bought these monitors. I preferred them to the Mackies and the Genelecs. They sound remarkably similar to the KRK E8T
