Nashville, TN (February 2, 2017)—P.Audio has introduced its new VIA Line Array system, which includes VIA-8 and VIA-12 two-way line array cabinets, the VIA-SUB cardioid subwoofer and the SB-218 subwoofer.
The VIA-8 and VIA-12 enclosures are fully powered, two-way line array cabinets loaded with two 8-inch neodymium woofers and 3-inch large format compression drivers that reportedly provide a continuous SPL of 126 dB (maximum peak SPL of 132 dB). The 8-inch woofers feature a neodymium motor structure with aluminum shorting rings with the intention of providing reduced distortion. The compression driver is a three-inch design featuring a Mylar surround. The two line array cabinets differ only in dispersion, with the VIA-8 offering an 80 x 15 pattern and the VIA-12 providing a 120 x 15 pattern.
The VIA-SUB is a fully powered cardioid subwoofer that utilizes a rear facing 12-inch woofer in order to cancel the sound radiation behind the cabinet and to control low frequency feedback issues. The newly designed, forward-facing 18-inch woofer uses double neodymium magnets for high flux density.
The SB-218 is intended for applications that require high levels of low frequency reproduction. The SB-218 is loaded with two 18-inch neodymium woofers utilizing two neodymium magnets. Onboard amplification in each VIA enclosure provides 1500 w of RSM power (3000 w peak) and is matched to the remote controllable DSP with its AD-DA converters operating at 96 kHz. The rigging for the VIA series is designed to support up to 16 VIA-8 or VIA-12 cabinets or eight VIA-SUB cabinets.
