The MicroWedge MW8 is collaboration between original MicroWedge Series inventor Dave Rat Levine (owner of Rat Sound Systems, Inc.) and the EAW Engineering Department, resulting in dramatically upgraded performance and ergonomics. The coaxial design pairs a 8-inch woofer with a 1.75-inch voice-coil compression driver to provide full yet controlled 90-degree conical dispersion.

All frequencies emanate from the exact same point, eliminating crossover region problems and time/phase irregularities, as well as optimizing coherency. The coaxial approach also contributes to a very compact, low-profile footprint.

The port on the front of the cabinet enhances LF response in coupling with the floor, the opening also houses a convenient carrying handle and dual NL4 connectors.

The MW8 enjoys the advantage of working equally well as a stage monitor or as a console bridge monitor. It was designed with a sturdy balance so that when set upright (on its backside) it rests easily on either side of a console bridge. A conveniently located pair of NL4 connectors further simplifies console setup. An optional pole mount is also available.

The Baltic birch cabinets are available in a black or white finish. The black monitors are protected with EAWs RoadCoatTM which provides a black finish and tremendous scratch resistance. The white monitors are coated in an extremely durable latex finish. The rugged steel grill keeps its distinctive shape even if stood upon. Points for Omni-mount plates are located the bottom of the MW8 to aid in hanging the monitors.

For applications that require enhanced performance the MW8 can be optimized using the EAW UX8800 digital signal processor.
