EAW VFR159 15-inch loudspeaker

EAW's new VF Series family of passive products comprises five models of VFR two-way full-range loudspeakers; two VFS subwoofers; and three VSM stage monitors. The VF family of products is intended for both portable and installation applications and environments, including auditoriums, theaters, nightclubs and DJ setups, bars, music performances, houses of worship, mobile churches, and more. The boxes’ consistent construction opens up a number of configuration possibilities spanning EAW's VFR and VFS Series, including clusters and arrays, matching speaker/subwoofer pairs or stand-alone units.

EAW offers five VFR Series loudspeaker models: VFR159 15-inch, VFR129 12-inch, VFR109 10-inch, VFR89 8-inch, and VFR69 6-inch two-way loudspeakers, all operating in passive mode. Traditional portable features such as handles, a pole cup and dual NL4 inputs have been blended into the body design of the loudspeaker, hiding them in plain sight. Portable usage is enhanced by the heavy-duty enclosure construction and foam-backed steel grilles. HF and LF transducers used in the VFR Series were derived from those used in EAW’s portable products. VFR loudspeakers also hide standard installation features such as large square rotatable horns, barrier strip inputs, the ability to add a transformer for constant voltage systems, integrated OmniMount mounting points and dedicated U-brackets and yokes for each product. The VFR159 and VFR129 ship with a 90-degree by 60-degree horn that can be easily field replaced with a 60-degree by 40-degree horn.

The companion subs to the VF family, VFS Series subwoofers have been designed to integrate seamlessly with the full range of VFR products in an array or as a stand-alone sub. Users can match two size selections—VFS220 Double 12-inch and VFS250 Double 15-inch—to applications using top quality transducers in direct radiating vented enclosures optimally tuned to match the rest of the VF product line.

EAW VSM159 15-inch stage monitor

VSM Series stage monitors comprise VSM159 15-inch, VSM129 12-inch, and VSM109 10-inch two-way horn-loaded stage monitors. VSM Series products serve as a dual-purpose stage monitor and portable P.A. The units’ low profile and compact size are suited for situations where small physical size is needed, without sacrificing professional performance. EAW states that VSM monitors provide power and clarity in a small package. Smooth HF response and tight pattern are provided by large square horns derived from installation products allowing for pattern rotation. Handles are seamlessly built into the construction of the loudspeaker enclosure. Connector panels are located on either side of the monitor, for easy loop-through cabling. Each VSM unit includes a pole mount cup allowing for the loudspeaker to be used as a portable full range system while its compact shape maintains a low profile when used as a monitor.

EAW states that its VFR loudspeakers, VFS subwoofers and VSM stage monitors "will soon be available in black or white finish."
