For either premium stage monitoring, or as a ‘mid-high’ box for compact front-of-house sound reinforcement, L-Acoustics 108P is right on point.
The star of this self-powered speaker box is probably the coaxial speaker, with the 1.5″ compression driver tucked nicely in the middle of the 8″ LF driver.
Let’s dig a little deeper though. This coaxial transducer arrangement produces a 100° axi-symmetric directivity output along with a smooth tonal response free of secondary lobes over the entire frequency range, resulting in exceptional immunity to feedback, especially in monitoring situations.
Make no mistake, the quality of amplification is what really makes this speaker sing. LF gets 500w @ 4ohms, while the HF is tickled nicely with 260w @ 8ohms. 108P also has some clever DSP onboard, to manage the system crossover network, driver time alignment, and dual protection of the loudspeaker components.
FRONT preset for main FOH system applications
FILL preset for distributed or complementary system applications
MONITOR preset for stage monitor applications
XOVER preset for use with the SB15P compact subwoofer
Sleek design, high-grade Baltic birch plywood, and all the quality you’d expect from a French speaker manufacturer help to make L-Acoustics an excellent solution. It’s one of the only boxes you’ll find that actually goes ‘all the way’ rather than passing out when you turn the volume control to max.
