Quested V2108 2-Way Active Monitor

Quested V2018 Active Monitors have earned a lifetime of trust with producers and artists around the globe, while staying at the cutting edge of reference monitor design.

Suited to standalone sound monitoring or multi-channel applications, the V2108 is a very powerful and versatile nearfield reference monitor.

The Quested V2108 employs individual LF and HF amplification via an 8″ LF main driver and a 1 1/8″ HF silk dome tweeter for incredible separation and natural response. No added electronics have been put in the signal path.

I have used Quested monitors for over 20 years and would trust no other brand to provide me with a truthful and accurate representation of my music.

~ Harry Gregson-Williams

The magic of these reference monitors lies in design and materials, harnessing the best of both to provide an incredibly natural and 'visual' monitoring experience.

Product Description

Now in its fourth generation, the Quested V2108 is their longest standing product and sets the benchmark in our nearfield monitoring range. When it was launched in 1988, the V2108 instantly built an enviable reputation with some of the world’s most critical and demanding users.

While always staying true to its origins, the Quested V2108 has evolved over the past thirty years, with improvements in both transducers and amplification that keep pace with the ever-changing needs of the industry and keep the V2108s at the cutting edge of monitor design.

The Quested V2018 Active Monitors have earned a lifetime of trust with producers and artists around the globe, whilst staying young at heart. Suited to standalone monitoring or multi-channel applications, the V2108 is our most powerful and versatile nearfield reference.

Hans Zimmer says:

I have used Quested speakers from about 1986. Roger actually rebuilt my studio in London. I’ve used his speakers ever since. When I moved to L.A., he again helped me design our studios. I think we have something like 40 pairs of his speakers here at Remote Control Productions. Sometimes I get tempted to try something new, but, within a short time, we’re back mixing with The Man’s speakers. 150 movies later, still no complaints!
