The DC8I was designed to be used in left, centre or right locations. The DC8i brings audiophile performance to both music and movie applications in vast array of listening and viewing environments.

Built around the unique high sensitivity Tannoy Dual Concentric™ drive unit, the Definition Install range brings class leading accuracy, detail and dynamics to installation applications ranging from media rooms to home theatre and boardrooms through to high end marine interiors.

The compact MDF cabinet is vented and rigidly constructed with extensive bracing to be acoustically inert. The unit can be mounted either horizontally or vertically using the integral keyhole mounts and the supplied wall plate.

The speaker is designed to be hidden within a custom designed installation; mounted on wall either behind the screen or acoustically transparent decorative panels with no appreciable loss of performance.
