Tannoy VQ Impresses DJs at PALME Middle East

28 April 2009

(Dubai) - Tannoy were proud to provide the sound system for this year’s PALME Middle East ‘Battle of the DJs’, held last month at the well established regional Pro Audio and Lighting expo in Dubai’s International Convention Centre.

A pair of VQ NET 60 active loudspeaker enclosures were installed (1 each side) to provide full range, highly directive and high SPL coverage for the DJ area, along with a pair of VNET 218DR twin 18” subs for rib-rattling low frequency response.

The VQ Series represents a milestone in loudspeaker development and is Tannoy’s loudest and most efficient enclosure to date, comprising of a unique point source horn-loaded Mid/High driver (effectively a Dual Concentric™ where both mid and high frequency transducers are acoustically aligned to radiate a single coherent wavefront emanating from the throat of the horn) which delivers class-leading dispersion control and clarity – allowing for very high output while minimising distortion. Each VQ NET 60 is an active system, with onboard dual channel Class D amplification and DSP as well as being networkable for remote tuning and EQ control.

While the VQ tops have a 2 x 12” low frequency element, for real bottom end such as is demanded by discerning DJs and clubbers, Tannoy developed a new twin 18” subwoofer to partner the incredible power and efficiency of the VQ cabs. The result was the VNET 218DR, an active, fully networkable, versatile, no compromise, all-purpose subwoofer designed for the most demanding installed audio applications. The VNET 218DR provides exceptional output, high reliability and outstanding sonic performance providing low and VLF reproduction – extending down to 24Hz! (at -10dB)

Tannoy’s compact active POWERV series was deployed for monitoring, with a single POWERV8 8” Dual Concentric™ driver equipped speaker more than satisfying the requirement in the DJ booth.

It’s easy to understand why the Tannoy system received so many glowing endorsements from DJs and interested spectators (including several venue owners), including the eventual competition winner – DJ Subandrio, who came by the stand to check out the product. Subandrio commented “I’ve never heard Tannoy before, but these VQ Series speakers are incredible. The subs are just about the best I’ve heard in over a decade of DJing – awesome bottom end!”
