Comprising of 3 models, VLS Series augments Tannoy’s already strong offering to the ‘architectural audio’ market – where maximum intelligibility and minimum aesthetic impact are the driving concerns. Building upon the proven commercial success of its flagship QFlex self-powered steerable array system, VLS Series offers AV contractors and consultants an alternative solution in the shape of a passive device offering balance of performance and cost, when active beam-steering may neither be required nor affordable.
With transducer technology adapted from QFlex, coupled with an innovative new passive crossover network design, VLS Series is the first Tannoy product to incorporate FAST (Focussed Asymmetrical Shaping Technology), delivering unique acoustic performance benefits not previously seen across a full-range of passive column loudspeakers. Central to this is its asymmetrical vertical dispersion, gently shaping the acoustic coverage towards the lower quadrant of the vertical axis. By the nature of a typical application, an ideal column loudspeaker should be biased in the vertical plane, towards the audience and away from reflective surfaces above (like ceilings) which are detrimental to intelligibility. FAST also facilitates quicker, easier installation with less need for tilting or specific concern for optimal mounting height.
This performance is packaged in a slender and narrow profile, aesthetically refined, powder-coated aluminium chassis with curvilinear aluminium grille; ensuring a sleek aesthetic and ultra-discrete appearance. Each model is available in either black or white as standard.
