RBH Sound 8300-SE and SE/R Signature Series Speakers
RBH Sound, a manufacturer of high performance home audio products, unveiled two new additions to their award-winning Signature Series speaker lineup.
The new Signature Series models are the 8300-SE and the reference version, the 8300-SE/R. Employing RBH’s proprietary aluminum cone technology, each model features three 8-inch aluminum cone subwoofers, two 6.5-inch aluminum cone woofers and a 1-inch soft dome tweeter. The reference version, the 8300-SE/R, features upgraded 6.5-inch fixed phase plug aluminum cone woofers, a liquid-cooled Scanspeak silk dome tweeter, and a modified crossover network to manage the upgraded drivers. The reference-level upgrades provide increased power handling and improved resolution, resulting in increased sonic clarity.
The 8300-SE and 8300-SE/R is 55-3/8″ high, 10-7/8″ wide (13-1/2″ with feet), and 17″ deep. The cabinet is constructed of.75-inch MDF and is internally-braced to eliminate standing waves and cabinet resonance. An acoustic suspension design, the 8300-SE and SE/R features a highly efficient, dimpled front-firing flared port which works in conjunction with the three 8-inch woofers to allow the frequency response to extend down to a bone-rattling 22Hz! True to the RBH Sound Signature Series tradition, the cabinets are custom-finished in one of RBH Sound’s 30 uniquely different custom woodgrain veneers. To appease audio purists, the 8300-SE and SE/R features two pair of high quality five-way binding posts, allowing for bi-wiring and/or bi-amplification.
The 8300-SE and SE/R can handle up to 400 Watts, have a frequency response of 22Hz-20kHz, and weigh 115 pounds each. The 8300-SE has an initial suggested retail price of $7,999 per pair, and the 8300-SE/R has an initial suggested retail price of $8,449 per pair. Both are expected to begin shipping in April.
