VUE Audiotechnik today unveiled the h-8 speaker, which uses an 8-inch transducer with a neodymium compression driver that’s capable of high frequency performance thanks to the Truextent beryllium diaphragm at its core. VUE’s SystemVUE networking technology is standard in the h-8 and that makes it possible to connect one or more h-8’s with any VUE DSP-enabled system via a wired or wireless Ethernet connection to a computer. Once connected, SystemVUE Software provides access to a selection of network and device-level control and monitoring functions.
The h-8’s drivers and electronics are housed in a birch enclosure that includes M10 rigging points and an integrated pole-mount for both portable and fixed installation applications. The h-Class grill and handle surrounds receive a two-part finish that lays a coat of transparent candy-apple red over a black base for a deep hue that’s uniquely VUE. The signature h-Class look is completed with a heavy aluminum rear panel that features a machined “VUE” logo integrated into the heat sinks.
