The Avante Audio AS8 ACDC is an easy-to-setup active column system with Bluetooth® 5.0+, perfect for acoustic solo performers, small bands, venues and mobile entertainers. The system comprises an active 8-inch neodymium subwoofer enclosure alongside two column units. One column is loaded with six precision-aligned 2.75” neodymium drivers while the other serves as a spacer to lift the speaker column up to optimal height. The SAM (Secure Array Mount) system allows the columns to lock securely to the sub and to one another without risk of being toppled over, eliminating the need for speaker cables. It operates self-contained on a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery, providing an average run time of 4 to 5 hours.
