ProAudio Technology launches VT16 line array
ProAudio Technology has expanded its product range with the addition of the VT16 line array loudspeaker.
The VT16 was first showcased at the Prolight & Sound 2017, the series rollout has begun in May.
The two 8-in high-excursion low-mid drivers are arranged symmetrically around the horn-loaded 1.4-in HF driver, providing a distinctive fullrange behaviour down below 50Hz.
In the crucial midrange all three drivers work in parallel, thereby providing essential headroom with a compact music programme. The horizontal dispersion is 90 degrees and the weight is 21kg.
The linear acoustic phase of the VT 16 above 80 Hz ensures broadband coupling among the individual speakers within the array.
The impedance of 1 x 12 ohms allows an economical drive with up to six elements per channel of a 10.4-DSP or 20.4-DSP system amplifier. A system with e. g. 2 x 6 VT16 and 2 x 4 SW18 can therefore be driven by only one 4-channel amplifier on a single 230V / 16 A Schuko outlet and needs only two cables per side.
The fully integrated 3-point flying equipment of high-grade steel allows vertical angles between 0° and 8° in consistent 1-degree steps and arrays of 16 VT16 loudspeakers in vertical arrays.
