The BASSBOSS DV8 Monitor
It seems that the rooms in which people host wedding receptions tend to be set up with the stage on a long wall, a dance floor in front of it and a lot of audience to the far left and far right. A big stack of speakers on either side of the stage would block the sightlines and, large or small, end up putting hideously ugly speakers on display in an otherwise very carefully decorated room. (Unfortunately, those hideously ugly speakers end up in the photographs.)
For professional system providers and quality-conscious professional musicians, the DV8 MicroMain offers amazing sound quality and serious output from an ultra-compact, lightweight, attractive, US made baltic birch constructed self-powered loudspeaker. This is the speaker-on-a -stick for your high-end clients. Outstanding speech intelligibility combined with line-array coverage characteristics make it perfect for hotel ballrooms and convention centers.
If you do weddings as a band or DJ, the DV8 MicroMain was designed to be small, which will make brides and wedding planners happy, elegant, which will make grooms and photographers (and wedding planners) happy, loud, which will make DJs and bands happy and clear, which will make audiences happy.
To accomplish the widest possible horizontal dispersion, I incorporated a line array waveguide for the high-frequency section. This waveguide provides 120° horizontal dispersion and has the additional benefit of projecting the higher frequencies to greater distances than a conventional horn. To maintain the widest possible horizontal dispersion through the midrange it was necessary to use a narrow midrange driver.
The cabinet is constructed with a forward tilt to take advantage of the coverage pattern of the line array waveguide. When it is mounted on a standard speaker pole, the cabinet is automatically at the appropriate downward angle to cover a large room while maintaining outstanding near field sound quality. The DV8 MicroMain is a self powered loudspeaker. The amplifier for the dual 8 is mounted in the rear of the cabinet. The handles Incorporated in the sides, top and bottom of the cabinet extend past the amplifier to protect it in transit. In keeping with the tradition of packing an immense amount of punch in a very small package, the DV8 MicroMain comes equipped with a 1500 W amplifier. (Big things come in small packages.)
