Presonus R80 V2 - 8" Powered Studio Monitor
Articulate, versatile studio monitor with acoustic tuning controls and AMT tweeter for wide soundstage and astonishing transient response.
Featuring acoustic tuning controls, a 6.8-inchAir Motion Transformer (ATM) tweeter and 8-inch custom-coated, woven composite LF drivers, PreSonus R80 V2 active studio monitors deliver a transparent and highly articulate sound with a wide sweet spot, making them a great choice for broadcast, post production, and commercial and home recording studios—particularly those working with high-resolution audio.
Clarity is king
Clarity is king—and with the R80 V2s, you’ll hear every single detail of your music—and no problematic trouble spots will escape your ear again! If you’re mixing or mastering high-resolution audio, the R80 V2 will ensure that you hear every nuance, thanks to its custom 6.8-inchAir Motion Transformer (AMT) tweeter that responds to the subtlest waveforms and the highest frequencies. You’ll hear all of the air and space that has become synonymous with high-resolution audiophile sessions. The AMT design also allows the R80 V2 to handle 8 to 13 times the projection area of more traditional tweeter designs—while its unique housing constrains this projection area strictly to the horizontal axis. The result is a very wide sweet spot with focused vertical dispersion—minimizing reflections from your desk, floor, or ceiling.
The 8-inch, custom coated, woven composite LF driver produces a more dynamic output than conventional designs, thanks to the rigid cone’s ability to maintain a more constant dispersion pattern across its frequency response range, resulting in transparent sound with reduced reflections. Biamped with 140W RMS of Class D power—75 W driving the woofer and 45 W driving the tweeter—the R80 V2 ranks among the most powerful monitor speakers in its category.
A set of four acoustic tuning controls allow you to tailor the R80 V2’s frequency response to compensate for the anomalies of nearly any mix environment—so you can expect predictable, consistent performance in the event you use them in more than one place.
