Quested Passive 3 Way 8" Studio Monitor
The Quested VS3208 is a self-powered, 3-way active monitor and part of the Quested G Range of monitors. The VS3208 is a 3-way active design, which can be used for a variety of applications including midfield reference monitoring in larger rooms, main monitoring in small to medium sized rooms and in installation projects where high quality audio is demanded. The bass drivers are 2 proprietary 200mm (8 inch) units housed in their own individual driver chambers, as are the 75mm (3 inch) mid-range softdome and the 28mm (1.125 inch) softdome tweeter.
Each speaker is powered by a built-in amplifier that provides in excess of 400W RMS, giving huge amounts of headroom. Switches provide for input sensitivity with an 18dB range of adjustment in 2dB steps and 3 switches for LF, mid and HF equalisation with each switch providing flat, lift & cut positions. Quested VS3208 applications include installations, broadcast, editing and voice-over suites, post-production project/home studios, nearfield monitoring and main monitoring in mid-size studios.
