Omnes Audio Exclusive 8AL Monitor is a three way compact speaker.

Omnes Audio Exclusive 8AL Monitor is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Omnes Audio .

The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Omnes Audio CX 3.0 coaxial driver
- a Omnes Audio W8 Alu woofer

The loudspeaker has been developed by Baur Akustik.

The crossover consists of:
- a 3rd order high-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter.
- a 2nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the woofer.

The frequency response of this speaker is nearly linear.

The decay spectrum (waterfall spectrum) shows a decelerated swing-out behaviour in the mid-range.

At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0,6% above 300 Hz and doesn't exceed 1% at 95 dB at 1 m between 300 and 15000 Hz.

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core coils for minimizing microphonic effects. - The current flow through the coil creates a magnetic field which sets the reel of wire in motion. This motion induces a voltage in the coil which adds itself to the signal. The stiffer the reel of wire is, the less the signal will be altered. The capacitors for the Omnes Audio CX 3.0 are of type polypropylen (MKP) Clarity-Cap ESA.
