OVERVIEW

Low profile, lightweight powered speakers.

Powered speakers are a great strategy for many sound reinforcement challenges, and Gemini's ES line provides an economical and professional solution for DJs, bands, and other live presenters.

The ES08P features a 300W Class AB amplifier that offers an excellent mix of power and linear sound reproduction. The 2-way speaker has an 8" LF woofer and a powerful 1.2" voice coil that accurately pushs low frequencies. The tweeter is a pure titanium compression driver with a wide dispersion horn for airy and detailed highs even at large distances or angles from the speaker.

The ABS nylon fiber cabinet makes the ES series of speakers strong and durable in the face of continual use and abuse. Each cabinet also has top and side mounted handles for multiple carrying positions and options for hanging or stand mounting, so getting to the event and setting up is simple every time.

On the back panel of the ES-15P are XLR, Line, and RCA inputs with separate gain and EQ controls as well as a Mix Output. Connecting your gear and crafting the ideal sound within your environment is easy to do with precision.

The ES series was designed to be a great and versatile speaker that will last for years under continual travel and use. With all the features of speakers costing much more the ES series comes in at a definite value with all of the detail and loudness you need in your sound.

FEATURES
  • 300W power amp
  • Lightweight and rugged ABS cabinet
  • Strong bass response
  • Affordable pricing

Easy in, easy out, good sound. What's not to like? Order soon!

I got this on the stupid deal of the day and didn't expect much for what I paid but it has been a great monitor for my solo and duo gigs. My percussionist bought this too after sending back the (wildly overpriced) Berlinger b205d and is enjoying it as well. It's not hd sound but with the dedicated hi and low eqs you can dial in a good enough sound to monitor your vocals and guitar and even some percussion. It doesn't have a monitor wedge which is a pain but I put it on a fold up guitar stand and it works fine. I'd pay full price for this before buying any of the other personal monitors I've tried hands down.

I wanted to use these speakers in conjunction with my stereo subwoofer, for small gigs. I tested one right out of the box. I turned it on with no inputs and with the volume control set to zero. When the unit powered up, I heard a ground hum similar to a hair clipper. I tested the input with a microphone, and the speaker seemed to amplify and play the sound source OK. However, the ground hum would cause my audiences to complain. I could not be sure whether the speaker I received was defective or was manufactured to a an unacceptably low standard, so I did not open the second box. I contacted Musician's Friend and they were wonderful about coordinating my return merchandise authorization. Great retailer; crummy speaker.

        Comments about Gemini ES-08P Active 8" Class-AB Loudspeaker:

        I purchased this speaker mainly for use as a portable karaoke system. The sound is top quality and plenty powerful. It works great as a PA system. For smaller to medium sized rooms, it is perfect for the local parties I do so that I do not have to lug my larger Harbingers around. Sets up in seconds, just running my 1/4 inch cable right from my soundboard. Bringing karaoke to Florida is a piece of cake now thanks to its size.

                      At full blast these were almost as loud as my 20 year old 4 inch Yamaha 20 watt speakers. I don't know who they even make the claim for the 300/75 watts, I guess it is all Power Used and Loss as honestly, a drummer in my garage drowns my pair out even at full volume... These are not clear, clean, or remarkable in any way. Also note, they do NOT Stand up straight as in the photo as they are top heavy and angled in such a way that they cannot sit on carpet so they have to be lain on the sides... What a Joke.
