We generally ask manufacturers to name a single product, or product family, for these Product Showcases. However, d&b audiotechnik nominated three: the J-Series, Y-Series and V-Series, known collectively as the JYV Messengers. Together, says the company, these can deliver scalable, versatile and flexible permanent professional audio solutions, from the smallest corporate speech reinforcement, all the way up to large-scale stadiums and arenas.
The JYV Messengers differ in output, cabinet size, and amplifier channel requirements. The J-Series is the largest of the three and is driven in two-way active mode. The smaller Y-Series and V-Series are three-way passive and two-way passive respectively. Together they are said to achieve accurate pattern control, tonality, frequency response and a common sonic performance, particularly when ArrayProcessing is deployed. According to d&b, they are designed to work together both acoustically and visually. They use the same standard amplifier platform, cabling solutions and three-point rigging procedure and design, and all use the enabling technologies of the d&b Workflow, including ArrayCalc simulation software, the optional ArrayProcessing optimisation function, NoizCalc immission prediction software and R1 Remote control software.
