New York, NY (September 19, 2016)—dBTechnologies has shipped VIO, a large-format, active line array platform.
Equipped with polyurea-coated 18mm multiplex wood enclosures and amplifier rain covers, VIO’s line array modules are intended for outdoor use at events like festivals and concerts. An integrated 3-point rigging system offers adjustments and one-person setup while specially designed transport carts are intended to speed system load-in/load-out.
VIO’s L210 full-range line array module features two high-power 10-inch woofers with 2.5” voice coils and a 1.4-inch compression driver with a 3” voice coil. The L210’s acoustic design includes aluminum LF phase plugs and a newly-designed HF waveguide.
VIO’s S318 subwoofer is a low-frequency module with three 18-inch woofers in a compact enclosure. Two of the S318’s woofers are half horn-loaded and one is front loaded, and feature mechanically-aligned voice coils for LF phase response. A software adjustment converts three S318s (one facing rearward) into a high-output, cardioid-pattern subwoofer system.
A 900-watt Digipro Class D amplifier with 56-bit FIR filters powers the L210 to a full 135 dB SPL. Three of these amplifiers allow the S318 to reach 143 dB SPL. Optically-isolated digital inputs are used and integrated RDNet software provides real-time networked system control and monitoring. dBTechnologies Composer software adds system coverage and SPL prediction along with centralized system voicing while available GLL and EASE Focus files enable consultants and system designers to use industry-standard system design software.
