Tannoy VLS 15
400W Passive Column Array Loudspeaker in Black


Call for price! Not available online.

The VLS 15 is a passive column array loudspeaker with a complement of 7 × 3.5" (89 mm) LF transducers mounted in vertical array with an assembly of densely spaced 8 × 1" (25 mm) HF transducers mounted co-axially over a section of the LF (in an intuitively engineered, super-imposed chassis).

VLS Series is the first Tannoy product to incorporate FAST™ (Focussed Asymmetrical Shaping Technology), delivering unique acoustic performance benefits including asymmetrical vertical dispersion, gently shaping the coverage towards the lower quadrant of the vertical axis. VLS 15 packages this performance in a slender and narrow profile, aesthetically refined, powder-coated aluminium chassis with curved aluminium grille; ensuring a sleek and ultra-discrete appearance.

The device is IP65 rated for dust and water ingress, salt spray and UV resistant and subject to rigorous high/low operational temperature and humidity testing – making VLS 15 suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Mounting is made easy via supplied flying and mounting brackets. Specification and design is aided by the use of Ease Focus v2.0 software, a generic, intuitive and easy to use three-dimensional acoustic simulation software. The software and relevant tutorials are free to download from the Tannoy website.
