HOPS8 (High Output Point Source) is a super-powerful, passive 2-way system with immense output-to-size ratio, and 100°x100° coverage. If you’re looking to kit out a small to medium size venue where you’re in need of high fidelity sonics and plenty of kick, HOPS8 is the box for you.
There are two HOPS8 options: HOPS8T, for mobile applications; and HOPS8i, for permanent installations, both of which are phenomenally versatile. These speakers can be used for corporate events or exhibitions, DJ foldback, sound reinforcement for small clubs, or even as stage monitors or front fills at a live show. In the theatre, they work great as under balcony fills.
HOPS8 has a double 8″ coaxial system at its core, high power handling of 450 W, and a symmetrical coverage of 100°. At the heart of HOPS8 are its two super-smart drivers: one 8″/1.75″ coaxial, and an additional LF driver. The 8″ cone covers the 60-1500 Hz frequency range with extremely high efficiency and a silky smooth linear response. What’s particularly clever is the design: two aluminium shorting rings reduce inter-modulation distortion, which minimises induction variation while reducing thermal compression at the same time. In a nutshell, it reduces the distortion massively at longer excursion levels, and in doing so, improves the overall sound quality, providing deep and punchy bass.
The high frequency driver contains an ultra-light 1.75″ annular diaphragm which produces an exceptional transient response with very high efficiency from 1 kHz to 20 kHz. This new transducer was engineered to radiate a single source, coherent 100° wave front for superior dispersion control and pristine and transparent high fidelity sound. Together, they guarantee uniform coverage with perfect time alignment between the components.
HOPS8 is designed to work with dedicated CODA Audio LINUS12C amplifier as an integrated solution for DSP control, amplification, network remote control, and diagnostics. This integrated solution guarantees optimal performance as well as protection.
