Portable Column “Stick System”
The Avante Audio Achromic AS8 is a column PA system offering multiple configurations to suit floor or stage placement, making it ideal for musicians, vocalists, DJs, presenters, and more. The system is comprised of an active subwoofer enclosure, a passive speaker column, and a column spacer, which can be added or removed to allow compact or extended positions. A Class-D power amplifier delivers 800W of peak power—400W to the vented 8″ neodymium subwoofer, and 400W to the six 2.75″ neodymium drivers in the speaker column—for an overall system frequency response of 55 Hz to 20 kHz. Stream audio wirelessly from a mobile device via the built-in Bluetooth receiver, and connect a variety of sources such as a microphone, guitar/bass/keyboard, DJ mixer, and non-Bluetooth device. The integrated mixer allows easy control of channel levels and the 2-band master equalizer. Route the balanced XLR output to an installed PA system, analog mixer, or audio recorder. The AS8’s rugged cabinets utilize polypropylene construction for lightness, while durable steel grilles protect the speakers from punctures, tears, and dents. A carry bag is included for convenient transport of the two column units.
