Tannoy adds VQ Live to its VQ Series for fixed installations
||Unveiled at prolight+sound show 2008 in Frankfurt, Tannoy's VQ Series is an expanding range of loudspeakers designed for any application where precise directional control, outstanding sonic performance, and high SPL's are critical issues; such as large corporate AV systems, stadiums, large dance clubs, live concert halls, theatres, open-air venues and houses of worship. The line will again be highlighted at infoComm, Orlando, Florida.
At prolight + sound show 2009, Frankfurt, Tannoy announced to team up with Paul Nichloson's Red Square Audio and French manufacturer of digital audio consoles Innovason in order to take the VQ series to the live and touring market. Tannoy announced the new branch of the line at the show in Frankfurt: "Offering significant and tangible benefits over other brands: sonic superiority, less boxes required, lower costs and full VNET implementation, VQ LIVE has the potential to be a true line array killer."
Utilising precision engineering and design, the VQ series can produce enough power and clarity to be used individually, maintaining the aesthetics of buildings, unlike line array solutions. VQ incorporates a unique driver technology to radiate a coherent single point source (400Hz – 23kHz) for superior pattern control when coupled to a Point Source Waveguide (PSW). This advanced design aligns the acoustical centres of the transducers providing a single coherent wavefront emanating from the throat. The MF/HF transducer loads into a large proprietary designed common horn (Patent pending). This technology allows to maintain the specified beamwidth to within a +/-5 degree tolerance.
Tannoy VQ delivers a performance advantage when compared to acoustic sources which consist of an HF compression driver and separate midrange driver each with their own horn. With VQ there is no interference between the midrange and high frequency at the crossover point in the vertical plane. VQ’s high sensitivity ensures that high SPL levels can be achieved with a modest amount of amplifier power. As an example, the VQ60 will produce 115dB for 1 Watt; and 138dB (144dB peak) for 200 Watts of amplifier power.
