L-Acoustics X-8

X8 Live Monitor

The X8 is a coaxial system designed for live monitoring and short throw sound reinforcement applications with minimum visual impact. The X8 features a 1.5’’ diaphragm compression driver coaxially loaded by an 8’’ low frequency transducer in a bass-reflex cabinet. The L-Vents laminar vented ports reduce turbulence and port noise at high levels to increase LF efficiency. 

The X8 operates from 60 Hz to 20 kHz. The coaxial transducer arrangement and its partial horn produce a 100° axisymmetric directivity output with a smooth tonal response free of secondary lobes over the entire frequency range. The internal passive crossover network uses custom filters. The L-Acoustics amplified controllers L-Drive parameters ensure the linearization and protection of the transducers.


With a cabinet combining the properties of birch and beech plywood, X8 weighs 12 kg and its elegance makes for an easy integration in any situation. It provides an angle setting of 35° with regard to vertical for stage monitoring. An optional white or RAL color program means that it can melt into any architecture.


The X8 is an ideal live monitor capable of accurately translating the signature of large systems at FOH position or in control rooms. The X8 features a pristine L-Acoustics sonic signature, a high SPL capability and extended LF resources in a compact format. Its coaxial design generates a wide conical directivity pattern with excellent spatialization and no minimum listening distance. Sound designers can also take advantage of its sleek design for discreet fill applications requiring a high SPL.


The X8 can be pole-mounted using the integrated socket. Other deployments such as wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted or flown are quick and easy, with a complete range of rigging accessories that offer multiple set-up options and various orientations.
