VIO L212 is the full scale 3-way line array system designed for larger touring applications, concurrently providing mighty output capability, optimized coverage behaviour and a stunning headroom, alongside with rapid and easily configurable rigging solutions. All the fundamental features of an outstanding PA packed into one of the most compact and lightest active 2x12” systems.
VIO L212 is a three-way active line array module exclusively equipped with neodymium components:
2x12" woofers (3” v.c.) placed to the outsides in a dipolar arrangement provide an accurate transient response and an extended and controlled low-end reproduction.
The mid-range section is mounted in the center of the cabinet in a horn-loaded configuration which dramatically contributes to the system's acoustic efficiency.
Midrange frequencies are delivered by 4x 6.5” woofers (voice coil 2”), while the 2x1,4” neodymium compression drivers (voice coil 3”) have been mounted to a waveguide which contributes to create a cylindrical wavefront, much to the advantage of the system’s intelligibility and throw capabilities.
PFC AND IPOS TECHNOLOGY
Each VIO L212 acoustic engine is driven by 2 Digipro G4® Class-D 1600W amplifiers, providing each system with a total of 3200W RMS.
The switched mode power supply is equipped with PFC (Power Factor Corrector) for a very stable and consistent, regardless of the quality of the mains and fluctuations.
This also grants a worldwide compatibility of the power supply (from 90V to 265V 50/60Hz) and limits power consumption.
Furthermore, the power supply is 380V resistant, so the final amplifiers will be switched off in case of an undesired strike of 380V current, saving them from any damage.
Exclusive technology of VIO L212 amplifier is IPOS (Intelligent Power-On Sequence), a circuit that controls the sequence in which the main power supplies of all units within an array ramp up.
As a result, each module is switched on in a different time frame, keeping the overall system’s inrush current low, even in very big PA system deployments.
As a default, VIO S218 is equipped with dBTechnologies RD-Net card, for real time remote control via Aurora Net software.
The preamplifier is ready for future upgrades with Audinate DanteTM AoIP protocol. To help users in this configuration, VIO L212 comes with built-in technologies: Near Field Communication (NFC™) proximity sensors are used to determine the position of each box within an array. This technology, together with a hi-brightness LED bulb on the front of the enclosure, contributes to help the user to recognize, identify and match each box physical position on the remote control software Aurora Net.
Just like smaller systems in the VIO family, L212 comes with VIO’s peculiar 3-point rigging system allowing a smooth and fast set up of the system. The 2 front links easily connect the modules from every angle. The back central rigging strand is equipped with a hook type link to set the relative splay angles determined via prediction software ranging from 0,5° to 8°. While lifting up the array, the rigging strand will automatically block the systems at the preset angles with no heavy lifting required.
VIO L212 has been designed for a complete acoustic compatibility with other line array modules of the VIO family. Both VIO L210 and smaller VIO L208 can be easily used as front or side fills in extended VIO L212 PAs.
TF-VIO2 adapter allows to rig VIO L210 as down-fill cabinets under VIO L212 arrays in order to create perfectly compatible hybrid systems.
