Procella Audio upgrades P8 loudspeaker30 March 2011
The Swedish manufacturer has released details of various performance-elevating improvements to the THX Approved P8 loudspeaker system.
The P8 high-output screen channel or surround channel speaker 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. With these pro audio components, the P8 is said to achieve improved high-frequency extension, higher power handling, lower distortion and even better dispersion control around its crossover frequency.
Designed for high-resolution, wide dynamic range playback of 24-bit/96kHz recordings and soundtracks, the P8 is THX Approved for integration into professional rooms, including THX Certified Screening Rooms and THX pm3 Studios (professional multi-channel 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.”
