Product Description

The ultra-affordable Eris E8 Monitor is designed to deliver a very accurate response with a tight bass and very clear upper end. That’s what you need in a home studio.

The PreSonus Eris E8 Package includes two E8 monitors and the JBL Active Speaker Starter Pack. The Starter Pak includes the Nano Patch Plus Volume Controller, two Isolation Pads and 2-TRS to XLR Male, 2-XLR to XLR cables (3 meters) valued at $79.99.

Thanks to well-designed Kevlar low frequency transducers, low-mass silk-dome tweeters, responsive Class AB amplification, and professional acoustic-adjustment controls, Eris delivers the goods.

PreSonus Eris E8 Powered Studio Monitor Features
  • 8-inch Kevlar low-frequency transducer
  • 1-inch (25 mm), ultra-low-mass, silk-dome, high-frequency transducer
  • 130 watt, Class AB biamplification
  • Front-firing acoustic port for superior bass-frequency reproduction
  • Midrange (±6 dB, continuously variable), HF (±6 dB, continuously variable), High-Pass (Off, 80 Hz, 100 Hz) and Acoustic Space settings (flat, -2, -4 dB) for accurate mixing contour
  • RF interference, output current limiting, over-temperature, transient, and subsonic protection
  • Optimized, resonance-suppressing internal bracing
  • Balanced XLR/1/4-inch and unbalanced RCA inputs
  • 105 dB maximum continuous SPL

When Size Matters
For an extended low-frequency response and a bit more muscle, step up to the Eris E8. With its 8-inch, Kevlar low-frequency transducer, driven by a 75 watt, Class AB power amplifier, it can range down to 35 Hz. The E8 monitor can reach all the way to 22 kHz, thanks to a 1.25-inch (32 mm), silk-dome, high-frequency tweeter. However, the E8’s tweeter is driven by a heftier 65W, Class AB amplifier. With its extra juice, the E8 can deliver up to 105 dB SPL, peak.

The Eris E8 speaker has front-ported enclosures made of vinyl-laminated, medium-density fiberboard (MDF).

Gazintas
The Eris E8 powered studio monitor provides balanced XLR, balanced 1/4 in. TRS, and unbalanced RCA line-level inputs. When both balanced connections are in use, the TRS input will supersede the XLR input. The RCA input is summed into the signal path.

With this selection, you’ll have no problem hooking your Eris speakers up with virtually any line-level source. (If your signal source has unbalanced, 1/4 in. TS outputs, simply use a 1/4 in.-to-RCA adapter or adapter cable.

You’re in control!
Today’s music producers deal with a wide variety of musical genres and often work in more than one location. It’s easy to take your Eris speakers with you when you want to work in a different space. It’s almost as easy to customize their sound for your room and type of music. The most basic control is the Input Gain, which determines the signal level before it reaches the power amp. This is part of gain-staging your overall system—that is, setting the levels for every part of the recording chain in order to get the optimal level of clean audio all the way through. Once you’ve gain-staged your system, you can leave this control alone.

The Eris E8 provides three EQ controls in its Acoustic Tuning section: High, Mid, and Low Cutoff. These controls enable you to fine-tune the monitors and even to broadly approximate the sounds of different types of speakers so you can hear what your mix might sound like, for instance, on a car stereo or portable radio. The Low control also is useful when using the E8 with a subwoofer.

In addition to the Acoustic Tuning controls, Eris speakers offer a three-position Acoustic Space switch. This switch controls a second-order, low shelving filter that cuts the level of all frequencies below 800 Hz by a specified amount (-2 or -4 dB) to compensate for the boundary bass boost that occurs when the monitor is placed near a wall or corner. If you don’t want to roll of those lows, set it to 0 dB.

This combination of controls lets you create a linear response for accurate monitoring and enables you to simulate different listening environments, so you don’t have to listen to mixes on your car, consumer computer speakers, and home stereo to check how the music sounds with different systems. Instead, you can adjust the Eris monitors’ response and test your mixes without leaving your studio. No other monitors in this price class offer this degree of control.

Safety Matters
Any loudspeaker is subject to an assortment of environmental and performance problems, and Eris monitors offer protection from most common of these. RF shielding protects against radio frequencies that could be induced into the signal and become audible. (If you’ve ever heard a radio broadcast unexpectedly coming out of a guitar amp, that’s the result of RF interference.

Eris monitors also provide over-temperature protection to avoid heat-related issues, current-output limiting (to prevent damage should there be a short circuit on the speaker terminals), and subsonic protection to filter out extremely low-frequency vibrations that could interfere with the woofer’s performance.

Finally, Eris’ power amplifiers have a soft startup so that you don’t get damaging pops in the speakers when you power them up.

Sound Thinking
By now, it should be clear that Eris-series speakers deliver a lot more than you would expect from a budget-priced studio monitors. As you expect from PreSonus, they use quality components, are well constructed, and deliver professional audio quality. They’re lightweight and compact and look as professional as they sound.

But what really sets them apart from comparably priced systems are user controls that allow you to tailor the speakers’ response to your needs.

I was very skeptical of these monitors at first because of the price point. But man they deliver. Great low end and crisp highs. My mixes translate better to other sources now.

Flat, very loud, and with great eq, and switches to tune to taste

Product Review

The 8" speaker I've had for a few months now, I alternate between the acoustic space switch in the middle or disengaged to sweep back some lows. They are very loud, affordably priced and no frequency stands out, so great for monitoring. Does need decoupled from desk in order to isolate the bass (seems my desk becomes a bass conduit). Can't complain, great price, great looks, and can't ask for more in the sound department considering they are geared to sound true to recordings/source! Great service from AMS on the fast shipping!

Great monitors for any size studio

Product Review

I’ve been through a dozen or so monitors at varying prices, these Eris 8 monitors are the best. They are not even fully broken in yet, and the sounds I was missing on my mixes mostly bad things jump right at me I can now Compress & EQ without over doing it. Next on the list is the Eros Sub. Also AMS included in the price a JBL monitor volume control and cables. Thanks a great deal.

Fixed my mixes fast!

Product Review

I’ve been mixing on some 5” M Audios for years and although I like them I kept struggling getting my low end right. Seemed like endless trips from the car speakers to my home studio always trying to fix low end issues. I finally upgraded to the Eris 8’s and nailed the low ends on my first mix. Couldn’t be more satisfied for the price. Wish I’d invested in them sooner.

For the price and the size, it is super. Can hear every little nuance. After tweaking it was even better. I'm sure when my friends hear this they're gonna want it too.

Very accurate with great plenty of bass and crisp clear highs. Definition of individual instruments and vocals is on par with higher priced monitors.

Product Review

my only complaint so far is that they came with black woofers instead of the blueish ones in the ad, which I liked. But they sound pretty good, even in my so-far untreated room.
