R80’s custom 6.8-inch Air Motion Transformer (AMT) ribbon tweeter responds to
the subtlest waveforms and the highest frequencies, resulting in a greater
sense of “air” and “space” that is characteristic of audiophile recordings.
Custom coated, woven, 8-inch Kevlar LF drivers produce a more dynamic output
than conventional designs, thanks to the rigid cone’s ability to maintain a
more constant dispersion pattern across its frequency response range. The
result is transparent sound with narrow vertical dispersion, which reduces
undesirable reflections, and broad horizontal dispersion for a wide sweet spot.
Driven by a 150W Class D amplifier, the biamped R80 delivers an open, clear,
and less fatiguing listening experience. Acoustic Space controls help compensate
for room anomalies, and an onboard highpass filter to easily to add a
subwoofer, making the R80 an ideal choice for any professional listening

PreSonus R80 features a custom 6.8-inch Air Motion Transformer (AMT) tweeter
that responds to the subtlest waveforms and the highest frequencies. This
allows you to hear the 'air' and the greater sense of space that is
characteristic of audiophile recordings. The R80's transparent and highly
accurate sound makes it ideal for use in both commercial and home recording
studios as well as broadcast and post-production environments.
responsive nature of the R80 AMT monitor design provides lifelike sonic reproduction
that will allow you to hear the room and breath in your recordings. The
transparent sound and responsive transient reproduction make them an ideal
solution for anyone who is mixing high-resolution audio.
In order to dampen resonance peaks at higher
frequencies, conventional dome tweeters are injected with fluid to raise
their mass, sacrificing transient response time. By contrast, the
custom-designed R80 AMT tweeter uses an incredibly thin, folded Kapton membrane
(< 0.01-millimeter) with an inlayed aluminum circuit functioning as the
voice coil, allowing the tweeter to move at the same instant as the electric
current. The resulting reactive response time provides marked clarity and
superior transient reproduction.
Unlike a traditional 1-inch dome tweeter, which
provides a mere 506 x 506-millimeter projection area, an unfolded AMT tweeter
diaphragm provides 8 to 13 times the projection area so its sound coverage is
much larger. For example, the 4,400 x 4,400-millimeter PreSonus R80 tweeter
provides coverage equivalent to that of a 3-inch dome tweeter. This enables
R80 monitors to provide a much wider stereo soundstage than traditional
The PreSonus R80 provides a wide lateral
dispersion and very limited vertical dispersion. The narrow vertical
dispersion helps to reduce reflections from the ceiling and desktop that can
cause phase coherence issues. The broad, even horizontal dispersion creates a
wide sweet spot. Because they are less subject to room-anomaly interference,
the R80s react more predictably and sound more consistent from room to room.
The PreSonus R80 utilizes an 8-inch,
custom-coated, woven Kevlar low-frequency driver. This rigid cone maintains a
more consistent dispersion pattern across its frequency response range.
Biamped and driven by a 150W Class D amplifier—making the R80 one of the most
powerful monitors in its category—these monitors deliver an open, clear, and
less fatiguing listening experience.
it Your Way
PreSonus R80 monitors offer user-adjustable
contour features for optimizing the monitors for your mixing space. This
enables full integration into any studio environment. A four-position
Acoustic Space switch helps to compensate for the boundary bass boost that
occurs when the monitor is placed near a wall. A high-frequency driver level
control helps to further mitigate room anomalies. An onboard highpass filter
makes it easy to integrate a PreSonus Temblor or other subwoofer into your
With three different types of audio inputs, it’s
easy to feed audio to R80 monitors from a mixer, an interface, a media
player, or almost any other line-level source. The R80 provides balanced XLR,
balanced ¼-inch TRS, and unbalanced RCA line-level inputs.
