• The DB Technologies B-Hype 8 is a 2-way active speaker designed for professional audio applications.
  • It features an 8″ LF driver and a compression driver with a 1″ HF voice coil, delivering a wide frequency response of 70 Hz to 19.6 kHz (-6 dB) and a maximum SPL of 120 dB.
  • The speaker utilizes a custom-made Class D amplifier with passive cooling, providing 260 W of power peak.
  • The dispersion pattern is asymmetrical on vertical axis, and it is diversified (top and bottom) on the horizontal one.
  • This allows a narrower and more efficient sound coverage, and a better performance in case of reverberant environments.
