ProAc invests a great deal of time researching the choice of diaphragm material for their drive units.
Some materials excel at certain frequencies and therefore it is logical to use more than one type of drive unit material to cover all frequencies.
The Response DT8, incorporates these design parameters for the first time in a ProAc two-way design. Utilising 2 x 6.5-inch drivers, the pulp mica cone unit delivers exceptional bass performance in a ported cabinet with the bass loaded via side vents. The polypropylene unit gives a smooth, detailed and uncoloured midrange. Both drivers work in tandem, resulting in a well extended low frequency response and ProAc’s natural sounding midrange with pinpoint imagery.
These frequency ranges are then cleverly overlapped by a Stewart Tyler designed crossover, which seamlessly integrates ProAc’s proven 1-inch soft dome tweeter. The tweeter is mounted in an offset position between the two bass drivers.
The Response DT8 takes its place in the ProAc range as our entry level floor-standing design.
We believe that this innovative loudspeaker will create interest in the mixing and matching of drive unit materials to effectively cover all types of music.

"The beauty of music and the joy and emotion it brings is so much more important than designs based on scientific measurements and statistics. Designing loudspeakers is an art, a gift of knowing when something is right – when the soundstage is portrayed, the speakers disappear, and you thrill to the music."
