The 3-way tri-amped design
The MF-HF coaxial component mounted in both VIO X310 and VIO X315 utilize the same transducer used in the widely successful VIO L1610 line array module: it's a 4” voice coil plus 2.5” voice coil coaxial driver, an incredible heavy-duty and high-fidelity transducer reproducing from 500Hz up.
When it comes down to detailed mid-range reproduction, a compression driver diaphragm is much quicker and more accurate than a similar sized woofer. Furthermore, because of the compact dimensions, this content can be easily dispersed through a horn, just like you would do with an HF driver, for improved control over the sonic pattern.
These characteristics result in an incredibly faithful and meticulous reproduction of the most critical frequency range, essential for clear-cut intelligible vocals and instrument separation in your mix.
Since a great portion of the frequency content is horn loaded, not only is the sound pressure level impressive due to the acoustic loading, but also directivity control is maximized.
Last but not least, the sum of all these clever acoustic design choices combined with cutting edge class-D amplifiers and DSP processing result in remarkable sound pressure levels, as high as 137dB.
VIO X315 is equipped with a single high performance 15" neodymium woofer, capable of providing loud, precise, wide band performances, with no compromises.
The goal was to develop a real full-range PA system, with an astounding wide frequency response, reaching as low as 37Hz.
In this model, the mid-hi coaxial transducer is placed behind a 90°x50° horn which has been designed with a slight tilt downwards (around 5°) to optimize the coverage in average venues.
Electronics and processing
Modern Tour requirements include a very reliable design and extended use of technology to adapt the PA to any venue anywhere in the world: VIO X300 series takes advantages of the entire range of available upgrades derived from the VIO series development in the last years.
The series is equipped with a 1400W RMS Class-D Digipro G4 power amplifier, a 4-channel amplifier able to drive each component individually, with dedicated FIR filters enabled sound processing for low, mid and high frequencies.
This amp has been specially designed for VIO X300 series and allows for complete networkability via Aurora Net thanks to RDNet ports. A modular card slot is ready for future I/O and remote-control upgrades.
A Power Factor Corrections enabled PSU ensures extreme adaptability to any environment while an integrated System Test checks for any possible transducer failure during the show. Also, a frontal LED light will always allow to determine the position of any remote controlled VIO X3 enclosure at any time via Aurora Net Software, the same suite used to access the speakers’ advanced processing instances, such as delay up to 560ms and up to 16 EQ filters.
VIO X300 makes the most of the acoustic design, delivering an astounding SPL and allowing for full bandwidth capabilities.
All of the above great advantages come with the ease of use of any other conventional active point source speaker.
Thanks to specific brackets and M10 threads, VIO X300 series can be utilized as fills in larger setups, such as a full range under balcony or delay system in fixed installations. Equally VIO X300 can be deployed as a compact, complete standalone 3-way system for any audience.
Lastly, VIO X300 can cover large, open air sound reinforcement setups, serving as high SPL fills, or powerful standalone PAs for the most demanding applications.
