I use the X8 loudspeakers as nearfield monitors for live concerts, both as a reference speaker for mixing ‘virtual soundchecks’ from previous show recordings, and as a reinforcement speaker to supplement the main PA system when mixing in less than ideal locations. They are small enough to sit on the back of my mixing console, while still being powerful enough for me to hear them perfectly clearly, when necessary, over the level of the main PA system.

Combined with an SB18 subwoofer, they fit seamlessly with the sonic character of the other L-Acoustics products, so I know that what I am hearing at the console will be consistent with what the audience is hearing from the PA. X8 were also used around the stage for the Arcade Fire ‘in the round’ arena system to cover the audience standing right up close to the stage.
