• dB Technologies VIO X205

    dB Technologies has announced the availability of the VIO X205 self-powered point source loudspeaker, initially presented in Frankfurt's PL+S. In addition to its electroacoustic features, it is the Italian manufacturer's smallest enclosure to incorporate FIR filtering and remote control via RDNet.

    VIO X205 is a 2-way speaker equipped with 2x5” (1” voice coil) and 1x1” driver (1.4” voice coil). The 400 W RMS DigiproG3 amplifier powers a cabinet able to deliver up to 126 dB despite its compact dimensions: only 150x 485x240 mm (WxHxD).

    Keeping in mind the needs of the most demanding professionals, VIO X205 is available in 2 models featuring 2 different constant directivity horns allowing a 60°x60° (for VIO X205 60) or 100°x100° (for VIO X205 100) dispersion pattern. This means that each user will be able to choose the model that best fits his project as full-range PA, fixed installation, FOH monitoring, front-fill in large sound reinforcement systems, etc.

    Just like other cabinets in the VIO X family, 205 is enabled for real time monitoring and remote control via RDNet protocol and Aurora Net software (Windows and Mac). On board presets let users adapt High Pass Filters to the chosen application.

    The cabinet is also provided with on board controls to set High Pass Filters as well as input sensitivity.
    This solid wooden cabinet is reinforced with a polyurea finish and features M10 threaded nuts on top and bottom allowing installation with accessories WB-VIOX205 H (horizontal bracket) or WB-VIOX205 V (vertical bracket). The cabinet can be installed on pole thanks to SA-VIOX205 pole mount adaptor (35mm) allowing 2 tilt options. Functional cover FC VIOX 205 is also available as an accessory.

    Basic electricity formulas

    Although it not specific to sound, we include this document with some basic electricity formulas. They can be found in any electricity textbook, but we have added them to the DoPA Library for reference.

    Ohm's law

    The most basic formulas derive from Ohm's law, which specifies that the electric current between two points is proportional to the potential difference (voltage) between them and inversely proportional to the resistance between them. The formula is:
    V
    I = ———
    Z


    where I is the current (intensity) in amps and V is the voltage in volts. Since we use alternating current in audio, we have replaced resistance with impedance (Z, and this could also be resistance R), measured in ohms. Clearing Z and V we have these other two formulas:

    V
    Z = ———

    Y-cables, looping audio signals through

    This article will explain loop-though connections and "y-cables" for analog audio signals.

    To obtain one or more copies of a signal (for example, to distribute the signal from a mixer to various self-powered speakers or power amplifiers) we use parallel connections. To do this we simply connect each terminal (pin) of the connectors in parallel. That is, 1 to 1, 2 to 2 and 3 to 3 (or tip to tip, ring to ring and sleeve to sleeve in a TRS connector). When we split a signal in two in this way, we refer to a "Y-cable" or "Y" connection, since the division of a signal in two looks like letter "y". Contrary to what it may seem, a y-cable is not a technically incorrect solution, but a correct way of splitting the audio signal. In fact, when a self-powered loudspeaker system or one channel of...
