DAS Audio has adds the Vantec-20A and the Vantec-118A to its Vantec Series lineup of portable systems.

DAS Audio Vantec-20AThe Vantec-20A is an active curved source line array designed to provide the versatility for professional sound hire. Whether stacked on the powered Vantec-118A companion subwoofer, flown in a compact array, or used alone on a speaker stand, the Vantec-20A can be used effectively in a applications that include corporate A/V, mid-size sound reinforcement, and permanent installation.

Designed for use in arrays of up to five units, the Vantec-20A is intended for applications that do not require the power and long-throw characteristics of large line arrays. Fast and simple deployment is provided by DAS Click-Lock rigging hardware, which enables the system to be securely stacked on, or flown from, the Vantec-118A. Individual units can be mounted on tripods with precise aiming possible, thanks to the variable angle pole mount that allows for up to 13.5º of up or down tilt.

The Vantec-20A employs the DAScontrol interface, which offers a quick and hassle-free set-up of the systems in arrays and easy alignment with the Vantec-18A and Vantec-118A active bass systems without the need of external processing. Presets for array size and HF compensation for throw distances can be selected by way of DAScontrol and the LCD screen on the back of the cabinet. The digital signal processing of the Vantec-20A includes Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filters. When the Vantec-20A is used individually, the DASlink app can be used to stream music in high definition stereo and remotely monitor and control the system’s functions. Power is supplied by a 1.5kW peak class-D amplifier in a bi-amplified configuration driving a single DAS 12F4C loudspeaker and twin M-60 compression drivers.

DAS Audio Vantec-118AThe Vantec-118A is an active front-loaded bass system that has been designed for use with the Vantec-20A curved source line array. Compact in size, the unit can be flown in arrays or linked together in ground stacks, thanks to the DAS Click-Lock rigging system, which is compatible with the Vantec-20A.

The electronics package includes a 2kW peak class-D amplifier and 24-bit high-end DSP. A Deep-Loud EQ switch allows the bass output to be tailored to provide a low subwoofer type response using the Deep setting or a louder hard-hitting performance in the Loud setting. Controls on the rear panel manage gain, polarity, and a continually variable low-pass filter that ranges from 80Hz to 125Hz. The Vantec-118A is phase response coherent with the other Vantec Series active tops like the Vantec-20A – delivering precise alignment without the need of an external DSP.

As with all DAS professional systems, the new Vantec products are manufactured using birch plywood and finished with the protective DAS ISO-flex coating. Optional accessories include rigging bumpers, transport dollies, protective covers, and locking pole mount.
