Gato FM8 Bookshelf Speakers

Clearance - NEW

Stand Mount - Bookshelf Speakers


Compact Performance.

The FM-8 sets new standards in the world of small speakers, and with only 8 litres of internal volume and a total height of just 300mm it fits perfectly on a bookshelf or on a TV bench. However, the FM-8 cleverly provides the full, rich sound of a bigger speaker with the intimacy, precision and coherent soundstage that small two-way speakers are so famous for.

The objective of this little masterpiece is to provide best possible sound quality in the smallest possible package and with great versatility in mind. It is designed for the most critical listener in a small listening room or otherwise compromised environments. The FM-8 could also very well be a part of a bigger multichannel system providing perfect coherence and synergy with our other models in the FM range of speakers.

Custom Made Drivers.

Gato develop and adapt each driver for its own specific purpose in every individual speaker model, combining their own team’s wealth of experience together with some of the leading transducer engineers in Denmark. With their approach of developing and adapting the driver to their desired performance and design needs, Gato benefit from not having to compromise their sonic and visual performance and can simply deliver a better sounding product.

Driver Technology.

Since the invention of the loudspeaker back in 1925, not much has visually changed to the naked eye - and from the outside, most speakers still look very similar. However, developments during the last decade in the use of high-tech materials, optimized magnet systems, low memory rubber surrounds and mineral filled cones are some of the technologies that we are fully taking advantage of to reach our goal of a perfect sonic performance.

FusedMASS Cabinet Technology.

The multilayer construction of the Gato Audio FusedMASS cabinet ensures extremely high internal damping, a minimum of resonances and providing extra strength and material stability. By laminating different materials in different thicknesses and adding a special glue, we have intelligently removed the resonance problem that otherwise normally have been approached by just adding more and more material.

PurePHASE Crossover Technology.

With their PurePHASE crossover designs they focus on three major technical aspects that seamlessly combines our state-of-the-art transducer designs into a truly outstanding loudspeaker system. Beside the usual job of a crossover - dividing the correct frequencies for each individual driver – the PurePHASE system also provides exact acoustic phase control, low linear group delay and wide linear dispersion too. This crossover technology was developed in house specifically for our FM loudspeaker range.

Lossless Crossover Adjustment.

Another special feature of our FM speaker range is the opportunity for the listener to adjust or customise the sonic performance of the loudspeaker. Not only does this gentle sonic adjustment enable the listener to adapt the speaker to their own specific taste, amplifier or listening room – it also ensures that no details are lost and that the listener retains the full, rich original sound.
