The installation specific 3-way passive Vi7P loudspeaker
features two 10“ drivers in a dipole arrangement with a horn loaded 8“ MF driver
and a 1.4“ compression driver mounted onto a rotatable CD horn. The innovative
horn design for the centrally mounted 8“ MF driver produces a remarkable
sensitivity resulting in an exceptional performance in the vocal range. An
advanced bass-reflex and venting design delivers an extended LF output with full
bandwidth capabilities. All components are arranged symmetrically around the
centre axis of the cabinet to produce a perfect symmetrical dispersion pattern.
Due to the dipolar arrangement of the LF drivers, broadband dispersion control
is maintained down to approximately 350 Hz in the same plane as the dipole.
This point source, high performance loudspeaker offers 75°
horizontal directivity matched with a vertical dispersion of 40°; the horn can
be rotated by 90° to enable horizontal orientation. The Vi7P provides a broad
variety of deployment possibilities, especially when used as a stand-alone full
range system, or combined with other elements from the V-Series, either ground
stacked or flown.
The loudspeaker cabinet is constructed from marine plywood,
and has an impact resistant paint finish. The front of the loudspeaker cabinet
is protected by a rigid metal grill. M10 threaded inserts are provided for
attaching d&b rigging hardware.
