Tailor your monitors to suit the room with the PreSonus E8 XT Studio Monitor! Thanks to Acoustic Tuning controls and flexible connectivity, its superb versatility will suit whatever the environment from bedroom setup to professional studio. Also featuring EMB waveguide design meaning you get deeper lows and a wider, more controllable sweet spot ideal for group listening.
Studio speakers with a wide sweet spot.
We outfitted Eris XT studio monitors with a new EBM (Elliptical Boundary Modelled) waveguide designed by none other than Hugh Sarvis of WorxAudio, the mind behind our award-winning CDL loudspeakers and lauded R-series monitors. The result? A superior high-frequency response and wider 100-degree horizontal dispersion to create a broader sweet spot - ideal for group listening and collaboration. Narrow vertical dispersion reduces reflections from your desk. Silk-dome tweeters ensure snappy, accurate transient reproduction.
Lows that go lower.
The familiar woven composite low-frequency driver offers Eris' signature tight, clear bass, plenty of punch, and no flab. Eris E8 XT studio monitors sport a ported enclosure that is larger than that of their predecessors, allowing them to reach down to an astonishing 35 Hz. That's 10 Hz below previous models—with no subwoofer!
Set up your studio monitors for your room.
Modern recording studios can be anywhere from a spare bedroom to a multi-million dollar facility. That's why every studio monitor we make is equipped with controls that ensure the flattest response in your mix environment. Acoustic tuning controls allow you to configure the Eris E8 XT perfectly for your room: You get Low-cut, Mid, and High controls, as well as 3-way Acoustic Space tuning that allows you to easily compensate for the sonic consequences of speaker placement against a wall or in a corner.
