Legacy Series - EM508

500w, 15-inch / 2-inch Monitor

The élite line includes a complete range of premium quality floor monitors. These two-way wedges carry over the curved, full grille look of their upright counterparts and provide clear sound for precise monitoring in a rugged and highly reliable package. Each unit has an optional, dedicated processor which enhances performance and allows optimum use of a subwoofer. For maximum versatility all monitors include a flush-mounted stand adapter so that they can be used as Front Of House speakers.



Onstage, a unique low profile élite design makes these monitors less of a viewing obstruction for front-row audience members, and all models can be positioned at two floor angles for close or wide coverage. Ruggedness is assured by Yorkville's proven construction techniques & design, top quality components, heavy curved metal grilles and durable black carpet covering. Recessed handles and metal corner protectors are standard on all units.

Based on Yorkville's powerful TX4, the bi-ampable EM508 floor monitor can be positioned at either 60 or 40 degrees for better controlled stage coverage. The unique shallow, directional horn on the EM508 allows maximum driver loading while the 850Hz crossover point ensures even output throughout the target zone of the monitor.
