SOLD AS ONE SPEAKER NOT AS PAIRS
The Presonus R80 Studio Monitor Speaker R80 feature a custom 8-inch2 Air Motion Transformer (AMT) tweeter that responds to the subtlest waveforms and the highest frequencies. This allows you to hear the “air” and the greater sense of space that is characteristic of audiophile recordings.
The Presonus R series’ transparent and highly accurate sound makes them ideal for use in both commercial and home recording studios as well as broadcast and post-production environments.
Superior Transient Response
In order to dampen resonance peaks at higher frequencies, conventional dome tweeters are injected with fluid to raise their mass, sacrificing transient response time. By contrast, the custom-designed AMT tweeter in the R80 uses an incredibly thin, folded Kapton membrane (< 0.01 mm) with an inlayed aluminum circuit functioning as the voice coil, allowing the tweeter to move at the same instant as the electric current. The resulting reactive response time provides marked clarity and superior transient reproduction.

Clean Stereo Image when used as a pair
Unlike a traditional 1-inch dome tweeter, which provides a mere 506 mm2 projection area, an unfolded AMT tweeter diaphragm of the Presonus R80 Studio Monitor Speaker, provide 8 to 13 times the projection area so its sound coverage is much larger. For example, the 4,400 mm2 PreSonus R80 tweeter provides coverage equivalent to that of a 3-inch dome tweeter. This enables the R-series monitors to provide a much wide stereo soundstage than traditional designs.
The Presonus R80 provide a wide lateral dispersion and very limited vertical dispersion. The narrow vertical dispersion helps to reduce reflections from the ceiling and desktop that can cause phase coherence issues. The broad, even horizontal dispersion creates a wide sweet spot. Because The Presonus R80 Studio Monitor Speaker are less subject to room-anomaly interference, the R80 reacts more predictably and sound more consistent from room to room.
