EXO SM16 is an active high-performance stage monitor, featuring 2 x 8” high-quiality woofers and a 3” compression driver. The 80º x 50º dispersion provided by the horn offers a well defined coverage. Its compact design, common in smaller monitors, surprises for its sound pressure.
EXO SM16 allows for any kind of applications. In its vertical position, acts as a powerful PA loudspeaker. It can be flown with a specific U-bracket. EXO SM16 stands out for its versatility and practicity due to its compact size.

This large HF system ensures clear, undistorted MF/HF and very high SPL at both stage monitoring distances and in stage Fill/FOH applications..
