World-renowned for their accurate, full-range sound, Blue Sky is pleased to introduce two new critical listening components to its full line of monitoring solutions: SUB 212 400-Watt Push-Pull Active Subwoofer and the SAT 8 300-Watt, Compact Mid-Field Monitor. The SUB 212 is designed to be an integral part of the monitoring system, enabling a studio monitor, such as the SAT 8, to be positioned for the best imaging, and the SUB to be positioned for the best bass response. Relieving the studio monitor of the requirement to reproduce the low frequencies means that the uncompromising sealed-box design can combine with sophisticated bass management electronics to provide a seamless transition between the SAT and SUB. When combined, the SAT 8 and SUB 212 provide a stunningly accurate and engaging, full-range monitoring system.

“Our customers were asking for a powerful system that was similar to the Sat 12 and Sub 15, but in a smaller package,” said Blue Sky Vice President Chris Fichera. “The Sat 8 and Sub 212 will address those applications.”
