EM Acoustics R8 Compact Precision Passive Full-range Loudspeaker


The EM Acoustics Reference Series of loudspeakers is not simply another iteration of a familiar slim profile form-factor. Rather, the series is the physical result of our ambition to redefine what is possible from a loudspeaker of this kind. A benchmark in physical and sonic elegance, possessing exceptional headroom and stability across all demands, the Reference Series represents the ultimate no-compromise option for point source applications.



  • Unique crossover approach combined with FIR for unrivalled impulse response
  • Interchangeable wide (110 x 50) and narrow (80 x 50) rotatable waveguides
  • 2 x 8″ neodymium LF, coaxial 4″/2.5″ MF/HF drive units
  • Flexible rigging and mounting options
  • Impact and weather resistant black or white finishes as standard
  • RAL colour and outdoor use options


Following in the footsteps of the award-winning R10, the R8 is a compact loudspeaker model in the Reference Series. Suited to any performance environment requiring ultra-high quality sound reinforcement in a versatile, low profile package, the R8 is a 3-way passive system that is especially useful where space is limited but system capacity and headroom are still critical. Whether rigged on a cramped theatre proscenium or deployed in a live music or corporate sound reinforcement setting where discreet appearance is key, the R8 will deliver truly abundant audio that defies its physical size.

The slim, discreet enclosure contains a pair of state-of-the-art 2.5” (64mm) voice coil 8” (203mm) neodymium LF drivers, and the same 4-inch (100mm)/2.5-inch (64mm) coaxial MF/HF compression drive unit as used in the R10 – meaning a completely consistent voicing across models in the Series. As with the R10, this coaxial compression drive unit feeds one of two alternate waveguides, which are direct dervations of the ground-breaking work undertaken on the R10. The result is that these waveguides possess not only an incredibly natural tonal character, but unparalleled consistency of response both on and off-axis.
