The VERSIO VSS 18 is a thoroughgoing digital system unit with integrated, direct-radiating 18" subwoofer and three class D amplifiers with prefixed 24 Bit / 48 kHz digital signal processor. The analogue input signal is digitalized directly inside the input amplifier using an intelligent 24 bit AD converter and remains consequently digital to the class D amplifiers' output. This technology avoids conversion losses, increases the dynamic range and achieves an unsophisticated, crystal-clear audio reproduction. The unit is powered by a wide-range switched mode power supply with PFC (power factor correction).
The dispersion of the VSS 18 can be selected very user-friendly between omnidirectional or directional depending on preset resp. set-up. The directional (cardioid) dispersion is realized by special, digital controlling in the VSS 18 together with one resp. two additional passive 18" subwoofers of the VERSIO series. The cardioid dispersion in the deep bass frequencies efficiently avoids unwanted backward sound reproduction of the subwoofer.
The result, besides the "quietness" behind the subwoofers, is a striking reduction of low-frequency reflections on back walls and a lower stimulation of non- optimal acoustic rooms .
An extremely powerful and precise low frequency reproduction in the front of the subwoofer as well as in the omnidirectional mode is guaranteed. The loudspeaker system can be used in bigger production surroundings (e.g. bigger indoor events) and also for installations.
The VSS 18 is the base of the VERSIO systems SD7 and SD8 and heart and control center of directional radiating bass arrays. Two also new digital working high-power top parts (VL 750 (12") and VL 760 (15")) complete those systems. The tops have a multi-functional casing and can be used as top part, full-range, monitor or delay system via different presets. The light-weights are located within the 20 kg class.
