Tannoy has introduced a new addition to its leading VX Series range of premium grade passive sound reinforcement loudspeakers, with the new model heralding a number of subtle changes across the range to provide more flexible solutions for mobile and versatile environments.
The VX 8M is a brand new full range Dual Concentric loudspeaker from Tannoy, providing a compact, yet punchy and sonically vibrant solution for small-to-medium scale performance sound reinforcement. With a tightly controlled 90 degree dispersion for optimum coverage and forward gain, the VX 8M has a peak output of 119dB and a recommended amplifier power of 260w, making it a powerful and versatile performer for a wide range of applications.
A brand new rugged highly compact birch plywood enclosure – available in textured black and white paint finish – has been ergonomically redesigned to offer a greater degree of flexibility, while maintaining the power and sonic clarity users have come to expect from Tannoy’s VX Series range. The new cabinet design includes 40 and 60 degree angles, making the VX 8M ideal for use as a dedicated floor monitor, with the 8” driver providing exceptional vocal monitoring clarity. The enclosure’s added pole mount and vertical yoke (options as standard) mean the user has a range of mounting options at their disposal, whatever the chosen application or setting.
Audio connection on this highly portable loudspeaker features a recessed termination panel with two SpeakOn connectors, offering a cleaner and more durable solution, perfect for a busy rental company or flexible venue.
A new enhanced steel grill has been added to the VX 8M as well as standard on two of the larger format boxes from the range, the VX 12 and the VX 15. With an already outstanding set of acoustic performance characteristics, the new grills make these perfect for floor monitor use for medium to large-sized applications where more power and punchiness is required, such as the 2014 SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, where they proved their worth as part of a Tannoy takeover of the British Music Embassy.
When the original VX Series was introduced, Tannoy pushed loudspeaker technology further than ever before, setting new benchmarks in versatility and acoustic excellence. An expanded range of enclosures and transducer compliments, VX Series combined next-generation Dual Concentric driver technology with smart new cabinet designs, enhanced build quality, and carefully thought-out functionality. The VX 8M takes these inherent qualities even further, producing a box that can fulfil any requirement in any kind of application, regardless of surroundings.
Targeted to small and medium sized applications, such as corporate events, house of worship, performance spaces, portable PA and the likes, the new VX 8M can combine with any Tannoy VX loudspeaker or VSX Series high performance subwoofer, precision engineered to deliver high impact, low and ultra-low frequency reinforcement in a compact format.
