Procella Audio has released a set of improvements to the P8 loudspeaker.
The upgraded P8 features a new 8 inch woofer driver.
The P8 now uses a new 1.5 inch Neodymium compression driver mounted on a custom Procella constant directivity waveguide and a new 8 inch woofer driver, all made specifically for Procella Audio. According to the company, the P8 now achieves improved high-frequency extension, higher power handling, lower distortion and better dispersion control around its crossover frequency.
The Procella P8 is a high-output screen channel or surround channel speaker, designed for high-resolution, wide dynamic range playback of 24 bit/96KHz recordings and soundtracks. It is capable of THX reference level (105 dB continuous) at a distance of 4 meters. Its Identical Voice design and crossover achieves flat phase response and ultra-low group delay, for optimized three-dimensional room response, and symmetrical coverage of high frequencies. The speaker is THX Approved for integration into professional rooms, including THX Certified Screening Rooms and THX pm3 Studios (professional Multichannel Mixing and Monitoring).
"We are very pleased with the improvements that we have been able to make to the P8. These new components make the speaker capable of more output at both frequency extremes, increasing both its accuracy and its maximum output," said Anders Uggelberg, founding partner and lead designer of Procella Audio. "We have worked closely with our component suppliers to source and develop these new drivers, and they have enabled us to make an enhanced version of one of our key products."
The new version of the P8 is shipping now worldwide, and its price remains unchanged at a suggested U.S. retail price of USD $2,599 each.
