Conceived, engineered and built with precision in the United Kingdom, VXP Series represents the latest evolution of Tannoy’s core philosophies in self-powered loudspeaker system design. The Tannoy VXP 12 features the brand new IDEEA™ (IntelliDrive Energy Efficient Amplifier) integrated power module from Lab.gruppen. The result is a highly compact, ultra-reliable and exceptionally efficient self-powered loudspeaker. VXP 12 offers a punchy and sonically superior solution for small-to-medium scale sound reinforcement as well as for critical-quality speech reproduction where clarity and natural vocal characteristics are paramount. The VXP 12 has been sonically matched with the wider range of VXP Series models, this allows consistency in installations where a mix of products is utilized.
The VXP 12 is built around a single 305 mm (12”) Dual Concentric™ driver mounted in an ultra-compact, rugged birch plywood cabinet with aesthetically profiled edges and an AirnetTM-backed, powder-coated steel grille. The latest version of Tannoy’s exclusive point source, constant directivity Dual Concentric drive unit ensures high sensitivity and exceptional efficiency. More than 60 years of research into Dual Concentric technology allows this unique configuration to deliver exceptionally smooth beam-width characteristics resulting in an even coverage pattern at all frequencies aiding predictable system design. Symmetrical dispersion characteristics enhance loudspeaker placement flexibility, allowing vertical or horizontal mounting of single or multi-cabinet arrays without compromising sound quality. The perfectly matched Lab.gruppen IDEEA integrated power module efficiently and effectively handles the demands of both fixed installation and portable audio.
IDEEA modules are designed for superlative audio performance, robust power output and long-term durability – even with extended duty cycles up to round-the-clock operation. Extensive features to safeguard internal circuits and connected drivers ensure a long and trouble-free service life. At the heart of the IDEEA module is a patented Class D output stage capable of high power levels with very low distortion and minimal current draw – all with a net operating efficiency in excess of 80%. A universal switching power supply accepts any mains voltage from 70 – 265 V (+/- 10%) at 50 Hz or 60 Hz through the appropriate IEC cord. In Auto mode, the speaker turns on with signal present and switches to standby mode after 20 minutes of no input, with standby power consumption of less than 1 W. Manual control mode allows the speaker to be turned on and off as required. A switchable 90 Hz high-pass filter tailors response for use with a subwoofer.
