Overview

Audiofocus ARES 8 provides all the benefits you can expect from a real line array which meets all of the WST criteria. The low-mid frequency range is handled by the exquisite dual 8” Faital Pro speakers while a silky smooth top end is provided by a 1’4” exit compression driver coupled to a waveguide. 

Because of the compact and lightweight nature of the cabinet, a single operator can set up the eight element system in just 10 minutes with the help of smart and handy rigging.

These are some key things to keep in mind about the ARES 8:

– ARES 8 is available in a “Plug & Play” version with 4 presets, DSP and amplifier from Powersoft.

– A Bi-amp version is available with Powersoft set up and amplifiers.

– ARES 8 line array system is listed in the Ease Focus database.
