The Yamaha HS8 is another model of monitor speaker designed for professional audio applications, just like the HS7.
The Yamaha HS8 follows the studio monitor design philosophy, offering a flat frequency response and accurate sound reproduction. It is designed to provide a neutral and transparent audio representation, making it suitable for critical listening, mixing, and mastering.
The HS8 features an 8-inch cone woofer for low-frequency reproduction and a 1-inch dome tweeter for high-frequency reproduction. This larger driver size allows for increased low-frequency extension and overall output compared to the HS7.
The HS8 has a frequency response range of 38Hz to 30kHz, providing a wide range of audible frequencies. The extended low-end response allows for better bass reproduction, making it suitable for applications that require enhanced low-frequency performance.
The HS8 is equipped with a built-in amplifier with a total power output of 120 watts (LF: 75W, HF: 45W). This higher power rating allows for increased volume and headroom, making it suitable for larger studio spaces or applications that demand higher SPL (Sound Pressure Level).
