The KH 80 DSP two-way active bi-amplified monitor features a DSP engine with network control, a Mathematically Modeled Dispersion™ Waveguide (MMD™), an analogue input and an extensive range of mounting hardware. This allows the loudspeaker to be used in diverse acoustical conditions, with any source equipment and in a wide variety of physical locations. The KH 80 represents the latest in acoustic and electronic simulation and measurement technologies to ensure the most accurate sound reproduction possible.

The KH 80 DSP is designed for use as a near-field monitor, as a front loudspeaker in small multi-channel systems, or as a rear loudspeaker in a compact multi-channel systems. It can be used in project and music studios, broadcast centers, OB vans, and post production studios for tracking, mixing, and mastering. It is also well suited for use in domestic environments.


  • New in-house simulated drivers with metal grilles
    Latest modeling techniques used to minimize non-linear (harmonic and intermodulation) distortion Driver cones protected from accidental physical damage by robust metal grilles
  • Powerful alloy fabric tweeter dome
    Low-distortion high-frequency reproduction
  • Elliptical Mathematically Modeled Dispersion™ (MMD™) waveguide, with wide horizontal and narrow vertical dispersion
    Smoother off-axis response, More forgiving of diverse acoustical environments Freedom of movement across the mixing console Reduces reflections off the mixing console
  • Long throw composite sandwich cone bass driver with Extremely Linear Force Factor™ (ELFF™)
    Damping of break-up modes and low distortion at high sound levels Linear pistonic motor gives a very low harmonic distortion even at high excursions
  • Two-color + dimmable Neumann logo displays operation status and activation of the extensive protection system
    Dimmable for low lighting level conditions or behind the screen applications
  • Compact polycarbonate composite cabinet
    No standing wave resonances,
    Fastest bass transient response,
    Reduced intermodulation distortion in midrange
  • Large front panel ports
    Reduced bass compression and easier to mount in tight spaces such as OB vans and small studios
  • One-piece front panel with no discontinuities
    Reduced diffraction and smoother frequency response
  • Powerful highly efficient amplifiers with large headroom
    Improved transient response
    Low heat dissipation
  • Independent thermo limiters for woofer and tweeter to protect the voice coils and power amplifiers. Woofer soft clip and excursion limiters
    Fast acting, high reliability and allows extraction of the maximum performance from the system
  • Production consistency due to individual alignment in final test
    Any one KH 80 DSP unit is "pair-matched" to any other KH 80 DSP unit
  • 4-position low-mid acoustical control
    Fast acoustical set up in mobile applications
  • 8 x Precision Alignment acoustical controls accessible via control network
    Accurate and flexible alignment of the loudspeaker in the room and within systems
  • Lipsync delay (0 ... 70 ms)
    To align audio and video signals up to 1.75 frames at 50 Hz or 2.1 frames at 60 Hz
  • Time-of-flight delay (0 ... 70 ms)
    To compensate for listening distance differences up to 24 m (79 ft)
  • Linear phase crossover, with bypass
    Flat phase response and can by bypassed to give a similar phase response to an analog loudspeaker
  • Wide range input gain and output level controls
    Easier interfacing with signal sources
  • Control network used standard Ethernet components
    No additional special equipment needed.Brings setup, alignment and operation functions via the Neuman.Control software
  • Completely symmetrical internal signal chain
    Minimizes noises caused by external electromagnetic interference
  • Double insulated electrical design
    Ground loops are impossible
  • Universal switched-mode power supply (100 ... 240 V)
    One version works in any country and robust to poor quality mains supply
  • Extensive mounting hardware options
    More flexibility in mounting cabinets in more diverse locations and backwards compatibility with previous models
