BlueSky is all about the full-range system and the eXo2 fills the bill with twin 3-inch satellites with 1-inch soft-dome tweeters and a separate 8-inch sub. Total system power weighs in at 160 W (35W x 2, 90W) and there is also a desktop remote and connection hub for easy plug and play. IO is on XLR or TRS plus RCA and 1/8-inch inputs for -10dB operation. The headphone jack mutes the monitoring system and switches the double-duty gain knob for headworn volume control.
