ARES 8i is a compact, bi-amplified 2-way installation system, renowned for its iconic sound signature in a wide range of sound reinforcement scenarios requiring excellent audio quality, from smaller venues to theatres and stadiums.

AUDIOFOCUS ARES 8i meets all WST criteria and offers the full benefits of a true line array. Dual 8’’ drivers handle low-mid frequencies, while a 1.4’’ exit compression driver and custom waveguide provide smooth top-end performance.

ARES 8i can be quickly deployed in any configuration when used with AUDIOFOCUS SCiO amplifiers with integral DSP and dedicated presets. Armonia presets are also available for Powersoft amplifiers.

A cost-effective rigging system provides a discreet solution for permanent installation.

ARES 8i is built with pride in Belgium and coated in tough, weather-resistant polyurea to safeguard your investment. The cabinet front is protected by a rigid metal grill, backed by acoustically transparent foam.
