Tannoy VX 8M speaker debuts10 February 2015
A new addition to Tannoy’s leading VX Series range of premium grade passive sound reinforcement loudspeakers is being launched at ISE 2015.
The VX 8M is a full-range dual-concentric loudspeaker, which the TC Group brand says will provide a compact yet punchy and sonically vibrant solution for small-to-medium scale performance sound reinforcement.
With a tightly controlled 90° dispersion for optimum coverage and forward gain, the VX 8M has a peak output of 119dB and a recommended amplifier power of 260W.
A rugged highly compact birch plywood enclosure, available in textured black and white paint finish, has been ergonomically designed to offer a greater degree of flexibility. The new cabinet design includes 40° and 60° angles, making the VX 8M ideal for use as a dedicated floor monitor, with the 8in driver providing high-clarity vocal monitoring. The enclosure offers a pole mount and vertical yoke as standard options.
Audio connection is via a recessed termination panel with two SpeakOn connectors, offering a cleaner and more durable solution, which Tannoy suggests would suit a busy rental company or flexible venue.
A steel grille has been added to the VX 8M, and now comes as standard on two of the larger format boxes from the range, the VX 12 and the VX 15. The new VX 8M can combine with any Tannoy VX loudspeaker or VSX Series high-performance subwoofer.
