The Power Acoustik P-8AMX:

With their new series of portable PA loudspeaker systems, Power Acoustik has significantly raised the bar above the competition. The loudspeakers have IMPP vented cabinets to give them the greatest strength to weight ratio possible in their class and sport power ratings of up to 1200 watts (from brand new Class D amplifiers) for tremendous dynamic range. With Power Acoustik's new P-Series PA systems, you’ll be up and rockin' with intense, clean and rich sound in no time!

Power Acoustik's compression horn tweeters offer a broad coverage area to ensure every detail can be picked up from just about anywhere you may be standing in any room or outdoor event. With up to 131dB of sound and a frequency range of 35 Hz to 20 kHz, your music will be truly experienced rather than simply heard. But hey, don’t take our word for it, try Power Acoustik's new line of portable PA speakers, mixers and microphones for yourself and see why they say...

“Loud is what we’re made of!”

General Features

Total Peak Power Output
The total peak power output is measured as the wattage per channel multiplied by the number of channels, and is calculated at the lowest level of operating impedance.

It is measured during a brief musical burst, such as a sudden drum accent. Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal.

The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

Built-In Equalizer
The number of graphic or parametric equalizer bands the stereo receiver is equipped with. The more EQ options, the more you will be able to adjust your music to your liking.
Number of Channels
Each channel on an amplifier will power one speaker using a positive and negative cable. There are various types of amplifiers, each designed to power a certain number of speakers. Monoblock amplifiers, also known as single channel, are designed to power one or more subwoofers. These amplifiers often have very high power ratings. On the other hand, multi-channel amplifiers power multiple speakers, usually at lower power ratings. 2-Channel and 4-Channel amplifiers can power car speakers or low powered subwoofers. Occasionally you might see a 5 or 6-channel amplifier that can power speakers and subwoofers at the same time. The most common setup is a monoblock amp to run subwoofers and a 4-channel amp to run door speakers. Check out our Knowledge Base for more information.
DVD Audio
The unit will playback audio files burned onto a DVD disc.
The unit will play Video Compact Discs (VCD). VCD are videos that are stored on regular compact discs (CD) and use a MPEG-1 compression.
The unit will play CDs, also known as Compact Discs. This is the standard format for audio optical discs.
Also known as CD+Graphics and often used for karaoke machines to present on-screen lyrics for the song on the disc.
MP3 Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play discs encoded with MP3 files. To burn a MP3 encoded disc, use the "data" mode on your CD Recorder and finalize the session and/or CD.
Memory Card Reader
Whether or not the receiver has a built-in input for removable memory cards such as SD (Secure Digital) cards or MMC (Multimedia) cards.
Microphone Included
Some units that require a microphone come with one, while others do not. This designates whether the item includes a microphone.
Number of Microphones
Some Bluetooth headsets will use multiple microphones to more efficiently capture the users voice.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
35 - 20000 Hz
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.

Speaker Features

Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
Fuse Rating
The amperage and the number of fuse(s) an amp requires.
Peak Power Handling (Subwoofer)
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
RMS Power Handling (Subwoofer)
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
Tweeter Design
Designs such as cone, dome, semi-dome, balanced dome, and whizzer are most popular. Cone tweeters are simple, efficient and typically are the most reasonably priced. Dome tweeters are used in most home speakers, and provide a smoother and more accurate sound. Semi-dome design is one with a dome placed inside a cone. A Balanced dome driver is a semi-dome with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the driver. A whizzer tweeter is a separate tweeter cone driven by the voice coil of the woofer.
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
98 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
35 - 20000 Hz
Speaker Grilles
A grating or screen of metal or plastic bars or wires, mounted in front of a speaker as protection. If yes, the speakers will include matching speaker grilles. If no, there are no grilles included.

Great Speakers

June 6, 2014

DJ''d a back yard party and speakers sounded great. They seem sturdy
but only time will tell. The mixer attached to the speakers and cable storage compartment are perfect to keep for forgetting things.
I'm impressed with these speakers!

Power Acoustil P-8AMX

June 4, 2014

Great product... I used this set up in a 650,000 square foot industrial warehouse for a company wide Mother's Day celebration. Music can be heard through-out when played, just sounds noisy after a good 70-80 yards. The P.A. function could be heard very clear up to about 30-40 yards away. After that it is heard but not understood. I bought speaker stands for this unit as well, the speakers do not fit steadily on the pole. I think the hole/inserts on the speakers need to be another 3-4 inches deeper for a sturdy feel because of this, Durability get's 3 stars. Otherwise worked well.

Great purchase!

March 29, 2014

Great sound, power and affordability! Compares to the much more spendy yamaha.The only problem is that the cooling fan is a bit loud. They could replace it with a quiet fan and still be as affordable. Other than that I am very satisfied and would recommend to anyone.
