The VIO C units feature a simple yet rapid rigging system
dBTechnologies has designed the waveguide of its VIO C series of two-way active line source speakers for maximum HF directivity control. Suited for a range of venues and applications, from installed PA systems to sound reinforcement for touring, the series comprises three enclosures: the VIO C12 (one 12-inch/3.5-inch voice coil LF and one 1.4-inch exit, 3-inch voice coil HF), the VIO C15 (one 15-inch/3.5-inch voice coil LF and one 1.4-inch exit, 3-inch voice coil HF) and the VIO C212 (two 12-inch/3-inch voice coil LF and one 1.4-inch exit, 3-inch voice coil HF).
The VIO C units feature a simple yet rapid rigging system, according to the manufacturer, along with a 1,600W RMS Class-D amp module Digipro G4 driving the DSP and allowing each system to deliver an SPL of 139dB for the VIO C12, 140dB for the VIO C15 and 141dB for the VIO C212. The VIO Cs are also equipped with dBTechnologies’ RDNet for real-time monitoring and remote control via Aurora Net software. The preamp is ready for future upgrades with an Audinate Dante card. With an asymmetrical horn, any single VIO C enclosure provides a horizontal 22.5° angle coverage pattern.
Users can set up scalable horizontal clusters so that the VIO C can be adapted to the venue. For example, a four-cabinet, side-by-side configuration delivers a 90° horizontal dispersion, an eight-cabinet cluster reaches a 180° horizontal angle and so on right up to a 360° coverage with a 16-cabinet setup. VIO C12 and VIO C15 models can also be coupled vertically, allowing users to set up double-line clusters (up to 32 elements) and modify the vertical dispersion pattern via digital steering. The design of the VIO C12 and VIO C15 speakers allows for the creation of up to four-module constant curvature arrays.
