The M8P2 was specifically created to offer the best sounding, cost effective and yet most convenient and complete small PA solution. Unlike many of the pre-packaged PA systems now on the market, the M8P2 package offers superior sound quality, a professional full-featured mixer, ample output power, and high quality full range loudspeakers.
The M8P2 PA Mate package is ready to go right out of the box and includes an M8, two NX84 loudspeakers, a quality Apex850 dynamic handheld microphone, all the required cables and a versatile convenient, ingenious packaging and transportation solution.
The M8P2 PA Mate package includes the popular M8 powered mini mixer. The M8 features two 85 Watts (at 4 ohm) power amps (170 Watts @ 4 ohm total), and has 8 inputs (4 mic / balanced line & 4 additional inputs on 2 stereo channels). There is switchable phantom power on mic channels, as well as combi-jack XLR & 1/4" inputs. There are individual clip indicator lights on each channel, three band Eq in mic / line channels with a wide range two band EQ on stereo lines. In addition, there is a four-band master Eq on the output. The M8 Micromixer also has one master auxiliary send with stereo returns, and a separate level control for tape record outputs. To make it more versatile the M8 also has selectable source cueing and separate level control for control room / headphones output, which can be used as an additional zone output in a small restaurant or club install. A pair of 25 foot 1/4" speaker cables is also in the package to facilitate proper connectivity between the M8 and NX84's.
Also included in the M8P2 is the NX84, a 4 ohm version of the already popular NX88, the smallest and most compact loudspeakers in the NX line. Small in stature only, the NX84 offers performance and features usually never seen in a loudspeaker this unobtrusive. Loaded with a single 8-inch driver and a true one-inch horn driver, it delivers a clean 125 watts with a 90Hz to 16kHz frequency response. Proven Yorkville CTL™ horn protection ensures reliable operation. 1/4-inch input connectors on a recessed jackplate are provided, as well as a pole-mount stand adaptor. NX series enclosures are manufactured using tough, lightweight, low resonance, variable density composite materials. In addition they are UV and moisture resistant which makes them ideal for indoor or outdoor applications.
Rounding out the package is the APEX850 dynamic cardioid handheld microphone. The low impedance, dynamic APEX850 is ideal for vocals as well as instrument and stage applications. It features an on/off switch and the same rugged metal construction as other Apex microphones including a one piece molded cartridge. Included is a mic clip and XLR to XLR mic cable.
Transportation of the M8P2 is a breeze with the two separate ergonomically designed padded carrying bags, included with the system. Bag one carries one NX84 speaker and the M8 powered mixer, bag two carries the other NX84 and the accessories kit. Each bag weighs less than 25 pounds fully loaded, making them the easiest way to pack, carry, and load a small PA. The two bags feature compartment dividers and can be securely attached together using a combination of velcro fasteners and a pair of plastic side-release buckles to simplify shipping and storage as a single unit if required.
