The EVE Audio SC208 Active Studio Monitor features an 8-inch SilverCone woofer which yields powerful, tight and full-frequency bass response without the need of an extra sub! EVE Audio designed the SC208 to have the same detailed timbre reproduction of all their other two-way monitors so you don’t sacrifice any highs. With the larger speaker and more powerful amplifier, the SC208 powered monitor will excel as the go-to speaker in professional and home studios.
The SC208 has an extended bass frequency response down to 36 Hz. EVE Audio’s custom-made 8-inch SilverCone woofer driven by a 1.5-inch voice coil will guarantee that you will not run out of bass response when it comes to the critical listening and comparison of your mixes. The result is a very tight and dynamic bass, along with the usual greater linear excursion provided in every other EVE Audio model.
The PWM amplifier, with protection-limiting, is able to deliver a short-term output power of 150W for a maximum output level of 112 dB (SPL at 1m). So you can be sure that there will be plenty of power to make critical and precise adjustments over your mixes when using the SC208 monitor. The SC208 also uses EVE’s AMT (Air Motion Transformer) RS2. The RS2 stands for Ribbon System 2, meaning it has a bigger front plate and a larger magnet driving the motion with the utmost efficiency.
With every EVE Audio speaker, you also get high resolution DSP electronics. One push knob operation and you will have access to accurate volume control and several different filter settings that will help you tailor your monitors to the way you work. The DSP engine of the SC208 active monitor is supported with a high quality A/D converter from Burr-Brown, which delivers a pristine signal to the DSP section. Since the PWM amps are directly connected to the DSP, no additional conversion is necessary.
Bass Port Design
One of the downside effects of port compression is bass distortion. As you turn up the volume, the efficiency of the port reduces and distortion will increase. That’s why EVE opted for a large rear rectangular port with no hard edges for the SC208 studio monitor’s bass port designs. That's one of the reasons EVE monitors have a high efficiency on the lower frequencies.
This results in high sound pressures with tight and punchy bass frequencies that don't cause port distortion. Crank up the volume, and EVE will deliver a round bass. And with no holes to look at every time you glance at your speakers.
