The XY-81 is a compact, versatile, passive loudspeaker product designed for a wide variety of compact and discreet sound reinforcement applications. It features a high-power 8 inch (203 mm) ferrite LF drive unit in a reflex enclosure, and a 1.7 inch (43 mm) diaphragm, 1 inch (25 mm) exit neodymium high frequency compression drive unit coupled to a 90 ° × 60 ° rotatable waveguide. These components are matched by an internal passive crossover network for unprecedented sonic quality from a completely passive enclosure.

Due to its discreet size and appearance, the XY-81 can be used in a wide variety of applications ranging from fills and delays in nightclub use to compact front of house and DJ booth monitoring duty. No active controller or programmed EQ is required for correct operation. For demanding applications, a 70 Hz, 24 dB/octave high pass filter is recommended to increase drive unit headroom. However, this is not essential for normal operation.
