The V7P and V10P from d&b audiotechnik claim to be ‘a new breed’ of high-performance, point-source loudspeaker, offering constant directivity control down to low frequencies and a wide range of rigging options.

Building on the three-way passive design of the d&b V-Series line array modules, the V7P and V10P house two 10-inch drivers in a dipolar arrangement with a rear-mounted 8-inch MF driver attached to a dual chamber horn. The exits from this horn create another dipole around the centrally-mounted single 1.4-inch exit compression driver with a constant directivity horn. This maximises the performance-to-size ratio, by making almost the entire baffle radiate.

The V7P and V10P deliver 75° x 40° and 110° x 40° (h x v) dispersion characteristics respectively. All components are arranged symmetrically around the centre axis of the cabinet to produce a symmetrical dispersion pattern. Due to the dipolar arrangement of the LF drivers, broadband dispersion control is maintained down to approximately 350Hz in the same plane as the dipole. The rotatable horn and wide range of rigging options make mounting in either orientation simple.

The bass-reflex design of the V7P and V10P uses an LF venting arrangement that delivers a frequency response from 59Hz to 18kHz, offering flexibility for standalone use.

The new V-GSub can accompany the V7P and V10P in groundstacked applications. This high-performance cardioid subwoofer requires only one amplifier channel and shares the same acoustical performance, cabinet design and driver arrangement as the V‑Sub – an 18-inch driver in a front-facing bass reflex design, and a 12-inch driver in a two chamber bandpass system radiating to the rear. The cardioid dispersion pattern resulting from this driver arrangement rejects energy towards the rear and reduces the excitation of the reverberant field at low frequencies. The V-GSub is fitted with runners and stacking recesses to prevent unwanted movement when stacked with V7P or V10P cabinets.

The Vi7P, Vi10P and Vi-GSub are installation versions of the new loudspeakers, offering a visually discreet cabinet design and installation specific rigging systems. Special Colour (SC) and Weather Resistant (WR) finishes ensure they fit seamlessly in any permanently integrated application. 

‘These point-source loudspeakers are an ideal alternative to smaller line array set-ups, especially considering their lightweight design and wide range of rigging options,’ says Product Manager Werner ‘Vier’ Bayer. ‘The V7P and V10P use an advanced hornloaded mid range section, which provides a remarkable MF sensitivity. This exceptional mid frequency performance, particularly in the vocal range, is where these compact V-Series cabinets excel. This endless vocal headroom makes them perfect for applications which demand high sound pressure levels with full bandwidth capabilities from a single box solution.’
