  VXT8 Monitors Speaker


"Once I had the VXT8s set up on my desk mounts (Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizers), I played some familiar test material and felt that the low end was just a touch overblown in the default full-space mode. I switched them to the half-space setting and found that the results were almost exactly right for my room and speaker placement. On the whole, I felt that these were very nicely balanced speakers, with plenty of detail and no squawky harshness or boomy bass. There's loads of bass extension but it all seems so effortless — there's no sense of hype, as is often the case from speakers where the cabinet has been highly tuned at around 80Hz to make kick drums sound more impressive.

Having mixed for a few minutes on the VXT8s, I very quickly stopped thinking about them, which is always a good sign. If you keep having to ask yourself how your monitors might be interpreting your mix, they may not be as accurate as their manufacturers claim. Because of the generous bass extension, adding a sub should be quite unnecessary in the typical project studio room, although of course you could do exactly that in a larger installation, or as part of a surround system.

Switching to the smaller VXT6s didn't bring quite so dramatic a change as I'd expected. The family sound of the speakers is extremely close, and this time I left the low end setting in its default whole-space mode. There's still enough low end here for a typical-sized project studio, and although the cabinet does sound a little more highly tuned, there's certainly no impression of 'one-note bass' or low-end congestion, so it would appear that the designers have got their sums right. The maximum SPL is only a few dBs less than for the VXT8s, and a very brief 'turn it up' test confirmed that the speakers sounded clean up to SPLs that were way louder than was comfortable to work with. Both models have a wide sweet spot, with good stereo imaging, and the bass end seems to stay reasonably consistent as you move around the listening area. Because of the close family sound that I mentioned earlier, it would also be possible to use VXT6s as rear surrounds in a system with VXT8s at the front".
