Legacy Series - YSM8

95w, 8-inch woofer

The Yorkville YSM8 delivers unmatched clarity and fierce bottom end. The 8-inch woofer and 1-inch soft dome tweeter deliver precise reproduction and a large sweet spot for listening in larger spaces and at higher volume. A solid ¾-inch MDF cabinet with reinforced bracing reduces rumble and the contoured baffle virtually eliminates cabinet self-interference. The front facing port design solves the issue of bass coupling with back walls and corners in smaller studio environments and further enhances bottom end response at higher listening levels.

  • Improved phase response provides a wider 'sweet spot' in the listening position
  • Strategic bracing and ample internal dampening eliminates unwanted low frequency rumble
  • Biamplified Power Module (75 watts woofer / 20 watts tweeter)
  • Custom designed soft dome tweeter
  • High quality low frequency 8-inch woofer
  • Rock-solid 3/4-inch MDF cabinet construction
  • XLR and ¼-inch TRS balanced inputs
  • 4-position high and low frequency trim controls to optimize response for recording space

Compatible with virtually any source, the Yorkville YSM8 has a widely variable input trim control for the balanced XLR / ¼-inch combi-jack input. Four position high and low frequency trim controls (at -2, -1, 0 and +1.5dB) allow user adjustable EQ contour to compensate for speaker placement in less than perfect listening spaces.

The YSM8 is designed for professional studio applications and for punishing listening environments where the widest possible sweet spot and higher volumes are required.
