The Proac Response DT8 Speaker is the newest floor-stander in Proac's extensive range, and incorporates design parameters for the first time in a Proac two-way design. These speakers use two types of drive unit material on two 6" drivers and features an intuitive Stewart Tyler designed crossover. . .

Proac Response DT8 Speakers


The drive units are the most important component when it comes to hi-fi speaker construction, as this is what will transfer cone movement into sound. This is why Proac have spent a great amount of time researching and developing their choice of diaphragm material. Some materials have proven to excel at certain frequencies and therefore it would be logical for Proac to use more than one type of drive unit material in order to cover all frequencies. However, the painstaking attention to detail was not reserved only for the drive units, as the same level of precision and perfectionism has been transferred over to the selection and construction of the chassis, the magnet system, the spider and voice coil, ensuring the best quality construction is achieved and therefore the best quality sound.

The Proac Response DT8 Speaker is the newest floor-stander in Proac's extensive range, and incorporates design parameters for the first time in a Proac two-way design. These parameters utilise a two 6.5 inch drivers: a pulp mica unit and a Polypropylene unit. The pulp mica cone driver will deliver exceptional bass performance in a ported cabinet, with the bass loaded via side vents, and the Polypropylene unit will provide a smooth, detailed and uncoloured midrange. Both of these drivers work together in tandem to result in a well extended low frequency response and the natural sounding midrange quality and pinpoint imagery that has become a staple of all Proac products. The frequency ranges are then overlapped by an intuitive crossover, designed by Stewart Tyler, which seamlessly integrates Proac's proven 1 inch soft dome tweeter, is offset on the front baffle, and has been placed between the two drivers.
