The Avante AS8 features six precision-aligned 2.75-inch neodymium drivers for the highs/mids alongside an 8-inch neodymium subwoofer with a 1.5-inch voice coil and a 28 oz. magnet. It features a powerful integrated 800W Class-D amplifier module with a built-in limiter and is capable of delivering a maximum SPL of 116dB while offering a dynamic frequency response of 55Hz-20kHz. It offers exceptional audio quality for amplifying both vocals and instruments clearly and accurately from an extremely lightweight and portable system.
Designed with speed and ease of setup in mind, the AS8 comprises of three separate components: a sub unit, a mid/top array and an array spacer. The compact floor-standing vented sub unit integrates both the amplifier module and on-board mixer. It connects to the mid/top array column using AVANTE Audio's new SAM (Secure Array Mount) system which allows the array column and spacer to lock securely to the sub and to one another without risk of being toppled over. The SAM connection also passes the audio signal from the sub up to the array column, through the spacer, removing the need for speaker cables and further speeding up setup time.
The AS8 has a total height of 79.1" (2010mm), which is perfect for performances either from the floor or a low stage. This makes the system a flexible PA choice for musicians, performers and DJs, playing in bars, lounges, coffee shops and small event spaces.
The flexible 3-channel mixer built-in to the sub unit features a 2-band EQ, a Power/Clip LED signal indicator and an XLR output for connecting a second AS8 or any other powered speaker. It offers XLR/TRS combo jack connections on the first two channels (switchable between mic and line level) and a choice of 1/4" or 1/8" jack inputs on the third channel. This allows direct connection of line-level audio sources as well as microphones and even a guitar, making the system ideal for acoustic solo performers, duos and even small bands without the need for a separate external mixer. The unit is also equipped with a BLUETOOTH® audio connection that allows wireless streaming of music from a smartphone, tablet or laptop.
