Conceived, engineered and built with precision in the United Kingdom, VXP Series represents a brand new evolution in Tannoy’s core philosophies in self-powered loudspeaker design. Tannoy VXP 15HP combines the technological refinement of the passive VX 15HP with the brand new IDEEA™ integrated power module from Lab.gruppen. The result is an ultra-reliable and efficient, self-powered loudspeaker offering a punchy and sonically superior solution for medium to large scale sound reinforcement. The VXP 15HP has also been acoustically matched with the wider range of VXP Series models, making it a perfectly capable component within much larger installations.
At the heart of the IDEEA module is a patented Class D output stage capable of high power levels with very low distortion and minimal current draw – all with a net operating efficiency in excess of 80%. A universal switching power supply accepts any mains voltage from 70 – 265V ( /- 10%) at 50Hz or 60Hz through the appropriate IEC cord. In Auto mode, the speaker turns on with signal present and switches to standby mode after 20 minutes of no input, in doing so reducing power consumption to less than 1 W (while in standby). Manual control mode allows the speaker to be turned on and off as required. Also provided is a switchable 90 Hz high-pass filter for use when adding a subwoofer.
Audio connection is via female XLR and power via PowerCON (included) on rear panel. VXP 15HP is available in black or white textured paint finish as standard, with matching grilles, and is also available in custom matched RAL colours as an option.
