Equipped with a pair of 8-inch, low-frequency, transducers-mountedin a "Super-V" configuration on each side of a single 1-inch exittitanium high-frequency driver, the WET2W8 can be used forunder-balcony fill speaker indoors or out, as well as stage rail fillor any foreground music application. Centrally placed on an ultrawide,120-degree pattern control horn to provide uniform coverage over thewidest possible bandwidth, the WET2W8's LF/HF driver combinationprevents detrimental horizontal lobing from occurring in the vocalrange. The resulting performance is marked by tight midrange patterncontrol.
