Overview

Powered speakers are a great strategy for many sound reinforcement challenges, and Gemini's ES line provides an economical and professional solution for DJs, bands, and other live presenters.

The ES08P features a 300W Class AB amplifier that offers an excellent mix of power and linear sound reproduction. The 2-way speaker has an 8" LF woofer and a powerful 1.2" voice coil that accurately pushs low frequencies. The tweeter is a pure titanium compression driver with a wide dispersion horn for airy and detailed highs even at large distances or angles from the speaker.

The ABS nylon fiber cabinet makes the ES series of speakers strong and durable in the face of continual use and abuse. Each cabinet also has top and side mounted handles for multiple carrying positions and options for hanging or stand mounting, so getting to the event and setting up is simple every time.

On the back panel of the ES-15P are XLR, Line, and RCA inputs with separate gain and EQ controls as well as a Mix Output. Connecting your gear and crafting the ideal sound within your environment is easy to do with precision.

The ES series was designed to be a great and versatile speaker that will last for years under continual travel and use. With all the features of speakers costing much more the ES series comes in at a definite value with all of the detail and loudness you need in your sound.

I got this on the stupid deal of the day and didn't expect much for what I paid but it has been a great monitor for my solo and duo gigs. My percussionist bought this too after sending back the (wildly overpriced) Berlinger b205d and is enjoying it as well. It's not hd sound but with the dedicated hi and low eqs you can dial in a good enough sound to monitor your vocals and guitar and even some percussion. It doesn't have a monitor wedge which is a pain but I put it on a fold up guitar stand and it works fine. I'd pay full price for this before buying any of the other personal monitors I've tried hands down.

Bought a pair of these for a ~56 seat, high ceilinged dining area at a retirement home, to compliment their wall mount TV, and for live events. Of the pair that originally came, one had a very loud hum at any volume setting, with or without anything connected to it. Tried different power cables, with same result. Was able to return defective unit to local Guitar Center with minimal hassle, and get a replacement ordered.
These speakers do have an amount of self noise at any volume, but of course this disappears once you have selected a sound source and begun playback.
I have these connected to a compact Behringer mixer which the L&R channels of the TV are routed to, with volume and EQ knobs on speakers at 3/4 of the way up, ridiculous volume levels for the space are easily attained. You obviously don't have a lot of bass with an 8" speaker, but the clients are not likely to be hosting any raves in the near future.

Good ordering and shipping. Loose piece in speaker.

Comments about Gemini ES-08P Active 8" Class-AB Loudspeaker:

Ordering was easy and shipment arrived on time but when I took the speaker out of the box and flipped in over to see the condition of the bottom, something was rattling inside of the speaker. I think it's a loose piece but I don't know what.

            The first unit had AC Hum with nothing plugged into it. Returned, second unit works properly with only a slight AC hum, acceptable. Unit is being used for a children's singing group; 1 solo mic and prerecorded music playback, for smaller rooms/gigs. Loud enough and decent sound.

              Comments about Gemini ES-08P Active 8" Class-AB Loudspeaker:

              Needed a compact monitor for our drummer, one that was loud yet had some semblance of tonality. This little box fills the bill. Monitor placement for a drummer can be problematic with space constraints being what they are in some venues. Our drummer doesn't do headphones so a speaker box was the only option. This Gemini ES-08P is perfect for our purposes.

                These speakers exhibit an unacceptably loud hum. Although each speaker has two inputs, only one is for mic or for line. The other is all line level.

                  Comments about Gemini ES-08P Active 8" Class-AB Loudspeaker:

                  I bought this little powered speaker for listening to music in my garage and on my patio.
                  *Buy an 1/8" stereo male to RCA L and R male Y connector for 5.99 here on Musician's Friend (SKU 333055 000000095). That allows you to hook up your computer, or cell phone, or ipad, or ipod or virtually any mp3 player to the unit.

                  It works fine for having some music on in the background. It's not for DJ-ing or live music in my opinion.

                  It's very light-weight and easy to carry from room to room. It appears to be built solidly.
