The SV8 has a large port, positioned clear of the woofer grill, provides deep response without port compression or air velocity noise at high levels. The high-frequency horn is mounted to its own baffle to eliminate reflections from side-walls and is mounted clear of the grill to ensure uncompromised sound quality. The rear-mounted amplifier is protected by a set of integrated handles, which make carrying the boxes a breeze and provide clean, elegant lines to the enclosure. A standard 35mm die-cast zinc pole socket is provided in the bottom of the enclosure. Installation versions are available with four 3/8" threaded fly points. A pair of SV8s delivers extremely high fidelity sound with the added bonus of high output plus the flexibility to extend their output even further by adding a subwoofer or two.
The digital processor in the amplifier provides 4 presets, which allow the speaker to be used as a full-range system, as a satellite for a small subwoofer or as a main speaker with a larger subwoofer. Preset 1 has the SV8 in full-range mode, offering frequency response to 40Hz with limiters engaged to prevent overdriving. Preset 2 offers slightly more SPL and response to 60Hz. Preset 3 provides another step up in SPL with the high-pass filter moved to 80Hz. Preset 4 offers the highest peak SPL with the high-pass filter set at 100Hz. Presets 3 and 4 are recommended when the SV8 is used with a subwoofer.
The SV8 was reviewed in Live Sound International, December 2016.

The SV8 delivers remarkable bass performance and outstanding sound quality, in keeping with BASSBOSS tradition. This single 8" loudspeaker compares to others' 12" loudspeakers for response and output. The cabinet is made in the USA from 15mm Baltic Birch. Every effort was made to deliver full, rich, smooth sound from a very compact enclosure.
The SV8 is suitable for use as a studio monitor and is equally at home in a live environment. It provides extremely flat frequency response with a neutral character for critical monitoring duties and it’s capable of remarkably high output, especially for its size. $1495.00 each. Free freight to commercial addresses.
