Vox 80 - Speaker KIT without Cabinet

Characteristics and sound properties
This the smallest member of the VOX family is an exactly scaled-down version of the larger models. The dimensions of the VOX 253 have been reduced by a factor of around 3. The driver concept, consisting of two mid-range loudspeakers and a side-mounted woofer, corresponds to the other VOX versions. The two 5 cm full-range FRWS 5 R 8 Ohm speakers fit perfectly in the baffle and cover mid-range. The smaller CP 13 4 Ohm tweeter ensures that the higher-frequency, although already well covered by the FRWS 5 R 8 Ohm, is further strengthened. The woofer in this set is an F 8 SC 8 Ohm full-range loudspeaker.

In order to be worthy of the honour of being included in the VOX family, the VOX 80 is fitted with a crossover which is just as conscientiously matched to the drivers as those in the larger models.

The results can be both seen and heard. The VOX 80 is an eye-catcher as well as an ear-catcher on any desk as a PC-based hifi, for example.

The VOX 80 has a power handling of 20/30 watts. In practice, in a PC environment, however, this output level is seldom, if ever, required. Set to an output of one watt, one VOX 80 will generate approx. 80 dB in a workplace, both speakers together create 86 dB. This is very loud. A miniature amplifier like the Visaton AMP 2.2 will, therefore, be perfectly sufficient for most applications.




(Extract)

" ... This neat little system really knows how to play. Not merely on the desk, but also as bookends on the shelf, provided you leave some space behind them. Amazingly, this miniature member of the VOX family will produce a rich, powerful overall sound which, understandably will not have a full complement of bass frequencies. The laws of physics put the limits on that with the 8 cm woofers. Despite that, this miniature VOX will offer you very pleasurable music listening. They are far superior to those boxes you normally find standing beside PC monitors.

A pair of VOX 80's and the VISATON AMP 2.2 baby amp, which runs on 12 volts, coupled with an MP3 player stashed away in your suitcase and you are all set for hifi quality on your travels or in your mobile home.

I took to these little fellows during the test phase and only handed them back with the greatest reluctance. ..."



Edition 6/2005

" ... From the upper tonics onwards, its tiny size makes it responsive and crisp when playing music and shows that it belongs to the world of capable, fresh, serious speakers with an excellent overall sound quality. (...) By the way, you will never find a VOX 80 thumping out heavy duty pub music.
Rock`n`roll and non-stop beats are definitely not the world in which it feels at home. (...) But a pair of VOX 80s on a desk, beside a computer screen or on a window sill will cause many a passer-by to think well of their owner. I speak from experience! ..."
