ARES 8 is a compact, bi-amplified 2-way touring system, renowned for its iconic sound signature in a wide range of sound reinforcement scenarios, from live gigs to theatre and stadium shows.

AUDIOFOCUS ARES 8 meets all WST criteria and offers the full benefits of a true line array. Dual 8″ drivers handle low-mid  frequencies, while a 1.4″ exit compression driver coupled to a waveguide provides smooth top end performance.

The smart ARES rigging system lets a single operator set up an 8-element system in just 10 minutes, with angles ranging from 0° to 10° with a 0.5° step. ARES 8’s lightweight construction and tough rubber handle make the system easy to handle, while magnetic pins cut out vibration.

ARES 8 is built with pride in Belgium and coated in tough, weather-resistant polyurea to safeguard your investment. The cabinet front is protected by a rigid metal grill, backed by acoustically transparent foam.
