Philharmonie im Gasteig Munich adds dBTechnologies VIO X205-100 to their equipment
The Philharmonie im Gasteig Munich
, one of the largest concert halls in Germany
, adds 8 VIO X205-100
active 2-way modules from dBTechnologies
to their equipment pool to support the main audio system of the hall. Because of their active design, size and specifications, the VIO X205
systems are perfectly suited to complement the existing active main system. Additionally, the VIO X205
showed excellent sonic characteristics that perfectly matched the existing system.
The VIO X205 systems are used in different locations depending on the requirements and the program and were used for the first time in the production “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - In Concert” with the Pilsen Philharmonic Orchestra. The concert series has now reached the fourth volume of the Harry Potter series, and the Pilsen Philharmonic Orchestra played Patrick Doyle’s soundtrack of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire live. At the same time, the full film could be seen in brilliant HD image quality on a big screen.
For the live-set, the eight VIO X205-100 modules were placed in a vertical position along the edge of the stage and distributed on the floor to support the main PA as front fills. The VIO X205-100 modules offer a 100° x 100° beam angle and, for this production, were installed using the WB-VIOX205V (vertical bracket mount) with a 5° tilt.
Because of the built-in network capability, the additional VIO X205 modules could be easily controlled and integrated into the existing audio network. The front fills can be controlled via the mixing console or separately via audio processors, depending on the requirements.
VIO X205 is a 2-way speaker equipped with 2x5” (1” voice coil) and 1x1” driver (1.4” voice coil). The 400 W RMS DigiproG3 amplifier powers a cabinet able to deliver up to 126 dB despite its very compact dimensions.
Advanced sound processing featuring Linear Phase FIR Filters allows VIO X205 to deliver an extremely coherent audio performance, standing out for its intelligibility and clarity from every listening position. Just like other cabinets in the VIO X family, 205 is enabled for real-time monitoring and remote control via RDNet protocol and Aurora Net software (Windows and Mac).
The cabinet is also provided with on-board controls to set High Pass Filters and INPUT sensitivity. Included presets let users adapt High Pass Filters to the chosen application.
