In the ARES series, the ARES8 speaker is a line source element for short to mid throw applications with up to 24 ARES8 in a line source arrangement. It also provides an elegant solution for a near field in combination with the larger ARES12 line source.

Polyurea coating with UV treatment will ensure a long-life touring solution. Rubber handles and an easy rigging solution will make any installation ultra-easy.

The Touring version is fully compatible with the active version, sharing the same acoustic response, phase and time alignment, regardless of whether it is used with the Audiofocus or Powersoft amplifier.
