With the new VT16 Vertical Line Array loudspeaker ProAudio Technology expands their product family by a compact line array system 58 cm wide (22.8 in.) which sets new standards regarding efficiency and cost effectiveness.
The VT16 was first showcased at Prolight & Sound 2017, the series rollout began in May. The two 8” high-excursion low-mid drivers are arranged symmetrically around the horn-loaded 1.4” HF driver, providing a distinctive full-range behaviour down below 50 Hz. In the crucial mid-range 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 21 kg (46.4 lbs).
The linear acoustic phase of the VT 16 above 80 Hz ensures a perfect broadband coupling among the individual speakers within the array and enables to equalize the whole system with an amazingly small number of filters.
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.
By using the company’s light-weight flying frame of only 10 kg (22 lbs.) you can hang 11 VT16 on a 250 kg (552 lbs.) motor. The fully integrated three-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.
