dBTechnologies just released a new member of the VIO family, VIO L208. The companys says the VIO L208 is a powerful and compact stand-alone line array system as well as a fully compatible down-fill for VIO L210 and VIO L208 hybrid systems, completed by VIO S Active subwoofers.
VIO L208 is a two-way active line array system equipped with 2X8” neodymium woofers and 1X1.4” neodymium compression driver (2.5” voice coil). The transducers are positioned behind an all-in-one panel which acts as a phase-plug and a HF horn. The waveguide behind this panel contributes to the creation of a cylindrical wavefront, much to the advantage of hi-frequency throw distance. Each module of VIO L208 is driven by a Class-D Digipro G3 900W amp module with auto-range PSU. Thanks to the advanced sound processing of FIR filters, VIO L208 performs clearly and perfectly. The pre-amp module is also equipped with a digital optical isolation, guaranteeing interference-free input signal.
Just like the larger VIO L210 system, VIO 208’s lightweight wooden enclosure comes with a built-in rigging system made for simplicity and speed: a back central rigging strand allows users to set the relative splay angles directly in the dedicated transport cart DT-VIOL208, which is able to house four modules plus one flying bar. While lifting up the array, the rigging strand will automatically block the systems at the preset angles with no need of heavy lifting.
The dedicated 3-point flying frame DRK 208 allows users to set a precise inclination of the array and is prepared to carry an optional inclinometer laser pointer. When not in use, the flybar can be easily stored in the transport cart.
VIO L208 features on-board presets allowing users to process the system manually and any preset can be easily changed remotely with Aurora Net control software from dBTechnologies. Here are all the specs.
