VXL Series

Slim Line Arrays Blend High Sound Quality with Visual Elegance

The VXL series cabinets are only 54 millimeters wide, presenting a slim, elegant profile that blends effortlessly with any décor. The key to the slim dimensions of these remarkable speakers is their compact 1.5-inch full-range driver units. Of course visual appeal is not the only goal. These small drivers have been painstakingly designed with neodymium magnets and top-quality materials throughout to deliver natural response right down to 77 Hz* , for full-range performance that is ideal for speech as well as music reproduction.

*In the case of VXL 1 - 24

High-performance drivers with neodymium magnets are arranged vertically to create a line source that achieves outstanding projection. The sound does not spread in the vertical direction and unnecessary reflection can be avoided, so VXL can delivers high clarity sound to the target area.

The following is a quick reference guide for appropriate selection of the VXL series.

D: Distance from the speaker to the farthest audience*

*The SPL difference between the nearest and the farthest is within 10dB SPL.

Distance D
VXL1-8 9.5m (31 feet)
VXL1-16 13.5m (44 feet)
VXL1-24 25m (82 feet)

*Distance from the speaker to the nearest audience: 3m

*Distance from the floor to the bottom of the speaker: 1.1m

For much larger space, the use of double speakers in vertical coupling is recommended.

Distance D
VXL1-16 + VXL1-16 33m (108 feet)
VXL1-24 (upper) + VXL1-16 (lower) 42m (138 feet)
VXL1-24 + VXL1-24 46m (151 feet)

*Distance from the speaker to the nearest audience: 4m

*Distance from the floor to the bottom of the speaker: 1.1m

Excellent Scalability

The compact driver units used in the VXL series contribute to wide horizontal dispersion. A rear-panel switch allows vertical dispersion to be expanded downward so that a wide range of applications can be accommodated.** Sound pressure level and coverage can be further adjusted as required by combining models with different numbers of driver units, expanding the range of potential applications.

** VXL1-8 vertical dispersion is fixed

Vertical Coverage Expansion

Vertical coverage can be adjusted via a rear-panel switch. Setting the switch to “Wide” expands the dispersion angle in the downward direction only, improving coverage at the front of the listening area in situations where the speakers are installed at a high location.

Weather-resistant Models

Weather-resistant Models

The VXL lineup includes weather-resistant models designed to be used safely outdoors. With a structure that prevents penetration from rainwater, the VXL-WR achieved an IP55 protection rating. Newer enhanced coating processes and speaker unit materials have been implemented to improve UV resistance and rust prevention performance.

More advanced anti-rust measures have been applied to the weather-resistant models, such as replacing screws on surfaces exposed to the environment with highly rust-resistant stainless steel, and changing assembly and manufacturing processes to prevent damage to the coating that protects the main body from rust.

*Do not install this product in harsh environments that exceed the applicable IP protection rating, or where salt damage or corrosive gases are generated, as this may cause failure.
