Ribbon transparency with baffle mount practicality and aesthetics. The Ribbon 8 allows a speaker kit builder to make a conventional looking speaker cabinet with the detail of a large planar loudspeaker.
The Ribbon 8 has very high impedance, good efficiency and, like all Newform Ribbons, has no transformer or need to re-stretch the diaphragm. Like the rest of it's family, the R8 offers very high dynamics and very wide horizontal dispersion.
When coupled with 6 1/2" or smaller midbass drivers, the R8 will deliver seamless off axis dispersion for a very broad sweetspot.
This allows a more conventional speaker system to be built around it, whether for high fidelity stereo or audiophile home theater.
The Ribbon 8 is practical Ribbon magic - a superb Ribbon tweeter that is easy to install and easy to integrate with any quality midbass driver due to its high sensitivity and low crossover point.
Why settle for a dome tweeter when you can have the musical transparency and room acoustics advantages of a very dynamic Ribbon?
