The Chapman T-8 is a three way full range loudspeaker. Featuring a 10” side firing woofer housed in a compression line base enclosure, allowing for extreme base extension. The Chapman T-8 incorporates the highest quality midrange driver and tweeter coupled with exotic highly damped crossover networks. The result is a presentation with tremendous three dimensionality and depth of image layered on a very black back ground, allowing the instruments and vocals to wonderfully position themselves as the recording engineer intended. These were functionally calibrated at the factory on 10/12/2012 STEREO TIMES quote from the R.M.A.F. show 2011,"The music emanating from the Chapman/MIT/Cary Audio room drew me in like a moth to a flame. Once inside, I sat down and listen to several musical selections and was impressed with the smooth, warm and organic sound. While not new to RMAF, the Chapman T-8 three-way floor standing loudspeaker is a relatively new model that has been making its way around the audio show circuit this year. With 89 dB sensitivity @ at a nominal 4 ohms, the Chapman T-8 should be an easy match for the vast majority of solid state and tube amplifiers." Another quote from HOME THEATER HIGH FEDELITY,:"Kudos especially to the Chapman T-8 loudspeakers. They have a nice finish but with a utilitarian bent. Let me tell you, though, their sound quality was nothing short of fantastic. Full, rich textures, clean and airy response in the treble with a solid foundation in the bass."
