dB Technologies introduces Vio C speakers

dB Technologies has introduced its latest arrayable loudspeaker in the shape of the Vio C. Itis a complete series of two-way active line-source speakers for a range of venues and applications, from installed PA systems to sound reinforcement for touring.

Designed to create horizontal or vertical line-source arrays and featuring a rapid rigging system, Vio C offers a number of coverage options. The series encompasses three enclosures housing neodymium components: Vio C12, Vio C15 and Vio C212.

The whole series is equipped with latest generation 1600 W RMS Class D Amp module Digipro G4 driving a powerful DSP.

As a default, Vio C models are equipped with dB Technologies RDNet card for real time monitoring and remote control via Aurora Net software. The preamplifier is ready for future upgrades with Audinate Dante card. Featuring an exclusively designed waveguide as well as an asymmetrical horn, any single Vio C enclosure precisely provides a horizontal 22.5-degrees angle coverage pattern.

When matching companion cabinets, users can easily set up scalable horizontal clusters, adapting the VIO C to the venue and application in use. Thus, a 4-cabinet side-by-side configuration delivers a 90-degrees horizontal dispersion, an 8-cabinet cluster reaches a 180-degrees horizontal angle and so forth, up to a 360-degrees coverage with a 16-cabinet set up. Infrared ports are placed on top and both sides of each cabinet so that the speakers can recognise the size and configuration of the system when linked together horizontally or vertically.

Vio C12 and Vio C15 models can also be coupled vertically, simply by turning a speaker upside down and placing it on the top of a companion speaker. The infrared ports placed on the top of the cabinets allow the two speakers to communicate and to be processed as a single unit, manageable via the on-board display or via Aurora Net software.

Enclosures are made of plywood reinforced by a black polyurea finish. A removable rain cover is included in each cabinet which is also equipped with two side and two back handles easing transport and setup.
