The C8-C combines the advantages of the single point source with the performance of large systems. Result of this rare combination is excellent timing, constant timbre and sound quality at low and high volume levels combined with a spacious holographic imaging and extreme distortion-free low bass reproduction.

Unique to ASCENDO�s loudspeakers is the  combination of the switchable ribbon tweeter placed in the back of the loudspeaker with the single point source driver in the front and the 22cm woofer inside the C8-C.

This combination keeps the impulse response perfect and adds, if desired, the Dipole like characteristics of a large surface transducer yet allows the choice of having perfect Studio Monitor characteristics.

TOS ON – Dipole / Large Surface Transducers

TOS OFF – Hemisphere / Studio Monitor

With the special base, and 4 FE dampers each, the C8-C is well decoupled from the floor. The combination of FE dampers and the base ensures even in difficult floor conditions, such as: Old floors or floating parquet floors,  high signal fidelity of the C8-C. The base also allows for a floor- saving placement without spikes.

Due to the low height and timeless clear design, the C8-C combines very well with different fixtures of a house.
