What the Pro’s are Saying

Virtuoso Central:

Virtuoso Central:

“In all honesty, the sound quality of the system will amaze you. If you’re looking for a system that lets you get heard loud and clear, this PA system is the real deal.”



“Just because this is compact, doesn’t mean the EON208P is lacking in any areas. This is an ideal system for a vocal duo with acoustic guitars, the need for a subwoofer not really evident.”

Product Q&A

Do I need additional subwoofer or the bass is pretty good on these speakers?

Asked by: Insane
This system sounds surprisingly wonderful for it's size, and it has plenty of bass. However, if you intend to shake the rafters, you will need to add a subwoofer.

Asked by: Kat10
The only difference between the 2 models is that channel 3 on the EON208 has a Hi-Z selection switch used for guitar signal input.

I have a need for more mono channels. Can I plug in two acoustic/electric guitars, one to each of CH5/6? If yes, will one guitar appear on the left speaker and one on the right speaker? Is there a way I can have both guitars to appear on both speakers?

Asked by: Mr_White
Yes, if you connect two guitars into CH5/6, one will come from the left speaker and one will come from the right. The only way to get additional channels would be to use a small mixer. Connect the guitars to the mixer and then connect the output of the mixer into CH5/6.
