VLS 7 is a passive column array loudspeaker with a complement of 7 × 3.5” (89 mm) LF transducers mounted in a vertical array, designed for speech-only applications.

Available in black or white finish.

Category: SKU: SP/HVL/TAN05FP

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 7 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 7 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.

Like the other 2 models in the range, VLS 7 can be ordered in either black or white as standard, with custom RAL finishes available.
