The latest speaker from legendary designer, Andrew Jones. If you really wanted the SourcePoint 10 but desire the same sound quality in a smaller form factor, the MoFi SourcePoint 8 could be ideal for you.
Designed to be a scaled down version of the SourcePoint 10 in size, the SourcePoint 8 is not scaled down in performance. You get so much of what makes the SourcePoint 10 special, but in a package that can fit into more spaces.
Andrew Jones, the Chief Loudspeaker Designer for Mobile Fidelity Electronics has designed another masterpiece with the MoFi SourcePoint 8 Concentric Loudspeaker. Andrew is well-known for his past concentric designs, but this one is quite different utilizing an 8” paper-pulp cone driver with a 1.25” soft dome tweeter. The tweeter is the same as in the SourcePoint 10 and the 8” driver is essentially a trimmed version of its bigger sibling. This is definitely not a speaker with off-the-shelf components and the results speak for themselves!
Alan Taffel, from The Absolute Sound, chose the MoFi SourcePoint 8 as his pick for Best Sound for the money and a tie for Most Significant Introduction at 2023 AXPONA.

DRIVEN TO ACHIEVE INCREDIBLE PERFORMANCE
The heart of the SourcePoint 8 is the innovative Twin-Drive high-flux neodymium magnet system.
It is not enough to simply optimize the frequency response of the woofer and tweeter. It is also critically important to minimize distortion in the motor structure of the drive unit. If the motor has distortion, it will generate new frequencies outside of the original signal. We have been very deliberate with the design of the motor to reduce these distortions.
The Twin-Drive system creates a fully symmetrical magnetic field, eliminating flux modulation for extremely low intermodulation distortion (IMD). This technical achievement is an important part of why the SourcePoint 8 sounds so pure and accurate.
THE 8-INCH CONCENTRIC DRIVER. TWO DRIVERS. ONE VOICE.
The 8-inch paper-pulp cone has considerably more surface area of a typical 6.5-inch bass driver, so it doesn’t need to move to move nearly as much in order to produce large and dynamic sound. This keeps a consistent waveguide around the tweeter for the most coherent sound possible, with the least amount of distortion, and without sacrificing bass.
Fitted centrally within the bass driver is a 1.25-inch soft dome tweeter with a wide-roll surround and large diameter voice coil. The tweeter has great power handling and minimal thermal compression, allowing it to come in at 1.6kHz and deliver smooth response beyond 30kHz.
The two drivers work together as one to create sound that is pure and powerful.
The front baffle is the launch point for your speaker driver. It needs to be strong and free of sound reflection.
The SoucePoint 8 uses a thick sculpted baffle with multiple facets to eliminate diffraction. All you hear is the smooth and even response of the driver, not the sound of the cabinet.
EASY TO USE MAGNETIC GRILLS
It’s quick and easy to make your SourcePoint speakers more discrete for casual listening. The fabric-wrapped grills attach magnetically and are perfectly form-fitting to retain the profile of the distinguished multi-faceted baffle.
For the highest performance, we recommend removing the grills while listening.
FURNITURE GRADE REAL WOOD VENEERS
You can choose the warmth and richness of Satin Walnut or the stealthy professional look of Satin Black Ash. The SourcePoint 8 uses furniture-grade real wood veneer that is book matched for mirror-imaged grain patterns on both of your speakers. For a more modern aesthetic, the painted Satin White finish is a great alternative.
The SourcePoint 8 has a unique combination of modern and classic style which suits a wide variety of interiors.
