Need help with IDing an install speaker
« on: December 30, 2015, 06:26:27 pm »

Hello, I need some assistance identifying a speaker I saw at a retail space. I can't seem to find any characteristics that would point towards any single manufacturer. I took some pictures of the speaker. It's kind of hard to see but they're the best pictures I could get. I was able to tell it was a 2 way 8" system. It looks like it could be part of the EAW MK series but I can't find which model it would be. I also thought it could be a Fulcrum Acoustic DX896 but it only has one 8" driver.

Any help IDing it would be VERY helpful.

someone gave me a selfie-stick last year as a joke.
I've found myself using it to hold phones up high while standing on a barstool to snap back-panels of mystery speakers when bidding on repair jobs.

Other than that they look very familiar, but just don't know -looks like they were deliberately stripped of logos, I've done that when the speakers were embarrassingly cheap  -maybe they are something the previous installer wasn't proud of and you should compare to some cheaper brands? (no-name mdf box -china?)

I highly doubt they are no-name chinese boxes. I was REALLY impressed by their sound quality and that's why I wanted to know their model/make.

They could of course be a no-name chinese brand but it is highly unlikely.

Unfortunately, the ceiling is too high up to get any sort of photo of the name plate.

That was my guess as well but the grilles seem a bit different.

The venue pic clearly(?) shows a horn in the 1st pic.  The Vue-i8 shows a dome tweet.

I found the Make/Model

If anyone was interested, it's the now-discontinued RCF C3108

Thanks everyone!

It looks like they still have a C3108 in their current products, but with 2 different coverage options as well as slightly different cosmetics.
(If they sound as good as you say I will be auditioning them for future installs myself.)

I would definitely recommend them. I just went back to take a look, or rather listen, to them and they do sound remarkably good. I don't know what kind of setting you would use them in but they sound very musical. You can hear every bit of detail in a song.
