ERIS E8 XT

Online

The Eris E8 XT is a substantial update to a highly praised classic. Deeper lows and a wider, more controlled sweet spot (thanks to its new EBM wave guide design) mean that PreSonus' best-selling studio monitors just got even better.

Studio Speakers with a Wide Sweet Spot
The Eris XT studio monitors are outfitted with a new EBM (Elliptical Boundary Modeled) wave guide designed by none other than Hugh Sarvis of WorxAudio, the mind behind PreSonus' award-winning CDL loudspeakers and lauded R-Series monitors. The result? A superior high-frequency response and wider 100-degree horizontal dispersion to create a broader sweet spot. It's ideal for group listening and collaboration-while narrow vertical dispersion reduces reflections from your desk. Silk-dome tweeters ensure snappy, accurate transient reproduction.

Lows That Go Lower
The familiar woven composite low-frequency driver still offers Eris' signature tight, clear bass; plenty of punch and no flub. Eris E8 XT studio monitors sport a ported enclosure that is larger than that of their predecessors, allowing them to reach down to an astonishing 35 Hz. That's 10 Hz below previous models-with no subwoofer required!

Studio Monitor Connections
It's easy to feed audio to your Eris E8 XT studio monitors from an audio interface, mixer, monitor controller, or almost any other line-level source. Eris E8 XT monitors provide balanced XLR, balanced 1/4" TRS, and unbalanced RCA line-level inputs. You'll have no problem hooking your Eris speakers up to virtually anything.
