Proel International is releasing two new Flash8 speakers, joining the existing Flash range that is replacing Proel’s Next8 series.
Both Active and Passive versions are available, the 8A and 8P. These polypropylene enclosed full-range speakers feature Celestion 8” subwoofers. Despite selling at similar prices to the older Next8 range, these models also include Celestion neodymium drivers and deliver better sound quality and performance.
The 8” woofer has an enlarged voice coil, offering increased power handling and better extension at low frequencies. Higher efficiency in the high frequency region is achieved by a large format HF horn.
The Flash8P can withstand 150W continuous input with a 300W peak and can produce 96dB across 70Hz-20kHz. This product is available with a SRP of £220.
The Flash8A offers 180W of class D amplification for the lower frequencies and seven active EQ filters. An onboard class AB amp can deliver 50 Watts and offers Line and Mic inputs. This product currently retails at £320.
