PROAC Response DT8
The Proac Response DT8 Speaker is the newest floor-stander in Proac's extensive range, and incorporates design parameters for the first time in a Proac two-way design. These speakers use two types of drive unit material on two 6" drivers and features an intuitive Stewart Tyler designed crossover. . .
The drive units are the most important component when it comes to hi-fi speaker construction, as this is what will transfer cone movement into sound. This is why Proac have spent a great amount of time researching and developing their choice of diaphragm material. Some materials have proven to excel at certain frequencies and therefore it would be logical for Proac to use more than one type of drive unit material in order to cover all frequencies. However, the painstaking attention to detail was not reserved only for the drive units, as the same level of precision and perfectionism has been transferred over to the selection and construction of the chassis, the magnet system, the spider and voice coil, ensuring the best quality construction is achieved and therefore the best quality sound.
The Proac Response DT8 Speaker is the newest floor-stander in Proac's extensive range, and incorporates design parameters for the first time in a Proac two-way design. These parameters utilise a two 6.5 inch drivers: a pulp mica unit and a Polypropylene unit. The pulp mica cone driver will deliver exceptional bass performance in a ported cabinet, with the bass loaded via side vents, and the Polypropylene unit will provide a smooth, detailed and uncoloured midrange. Both of these drivers work together in tandem to result in a well extended low frequency response and the natural sounding midrange quality and pinpoint imagery that has become a staple of all Proac products. The frequency ranges are then overlapped by an intuitive crossover, designed by Stewart Tyler, which seamlessly integrates Proac's proven 1 inch soft dome tweeter, is offset on the front baffle, and has been placed between the two drivers.

The DT8 breaks the mould from other floor standers in its price range by utilising more than one type of driver unit material. This means that the materials have been selected that excel at certain frequencies so you can be assured of a solid sound landscape across the frequencies.
The DT8 comes in a range of sophisticated finishes such as black aska, cherry, mahogany, maple, oak and silk white, alongside the premium finishes of rosewood and ebony.
The Pagina Mica cone unit utilises 2 x 6.5 inch drivers, and showcases an outstanding bass performance. An intricately detailed and unblemished midrange is delivered by the ported cabinet with side vents and crafted from polypropylene.
ProAc's emblematic natural sounding midrange quality and pinpoint detail are delivered thanks to both drivers working together and offering a low-frequency response. A new designed crossover by Stewart Tyler then overlaps the frequency ranges and combines with the brand's inch soft dome tweeter.
Innovative Two-Way Design
Unlike other speakers that utilise the same driver cone material across their ranges, ProAc has for the first time ever used two different types of mid/bass unit in a two way design. The mixing and matching of driver unit cone materials brilliantly covers different types of music, making this a versatile and flexible design.
