The EAW MK8196 is a full range, passive, two-way system in a trapezoidal enclosure. It consists of an 8" low-frequency vented cone, 1" exit high-frequency compression driver, horn-loaded. The dispersion is 90 degree (h) by 60 degree (v) coverage pattern with a user-rotatable horn.

The MK8196 two-way loudspeaker system sets the new standard in installation performance by solving the chronic problems of compact two-way loudspeakers. Yet it’s size is actually smaller than many of the compact two-ways it outperforms. The HF horn loading the 1-in exit/38mm voice coil compression driver is larger than most traditional compact two-way horns. This extends pattern control lower into the midrange than would otherwise be possible and allows the horn’s pattern to overlap the woofer’s pattern in the critcal crossover area.

Advanced beamwidth matching crossover point selection transitions between the subsystems exactly where the HF horn’s 90° (h) x 60° (v) coverage pattern matches the woofer’s pattern. This eliminates the beamwidth mismatch that creates offaxis voids in the crossover area of traditional two-way systems. The internal passive crossover/filter network uses complex, asymmetrical slopes to integrate the subsystems and goes beyond merely dividing the signal to perform critical equalization functions.

The MK8196 provides a high performance solution to applications requiring the use of an ultra-compact two-way loudspeaker system. Ideally suited to distributed approaches, these small, powerful sytems mount easily in a variety of locations and provide consistent coverage over the entire frequency range.

MK Series HF horns feature a square flange allowing the user to rotate them 90°. This way, the systems can be mounted horizontally while maintaining the desired coverage pattern. And the comprehensive system of 3/8”-16 threaded mounting/ suspension points permit the enclosures in any orientation.
