About dB Technologies DVA T8 Powered Loudspeaker
The latest and most advanced incarnation of a string of successful line array systems that started with the DVA T4 and enhanced with DVA T12. Hard to believe that something so petite succeded in packing such a mighty punch.
dB Technologies DVA T8 powered loudspeaker is a 3-way module equipped with a 8” bass reflex neodymium woofer, 1 horn loaded 6.5” midrange with a 2” voice coil and phase plug device, and two 1”drivers with constant directivity horn. These components have been optimally arranged to obtain a uniform 100° by 15° coverage per module. DVA T8 features a Class D 700 W RMS Digipro G2 digital amplifier and is capable to reach up to 132 dB SPL.
The system is equipped with a RDNET port which allows the system to be controlled and monitored remotely in real-time through the use of dBTechnologies Network control software. Thanks to a rotary on the module’s rear panel, it is possible to select one among 9 different preset options plus a personal setting which can be saved. This way, users adapt the module’s frequency response to aiming distance and to coupling with other modules within the same array, thus optimizing the sound in a consistent and balanced way, without the use of any external processors.
The module’s electronics and components are housed in a sturdy polypropylene box, reinforced with an internal anti-vibration metal structure which drastically reduces any resonance, allowing the cabinet to achieve an excellent acoustic response. The reinforced polypropylene box, the selected components and a state of the art amplifying technology come together to deliver an exceptional weight-performance ratio: in facts, each module of dB Technologies DVA T8 powered loudspeaker weights a mere 14,2 kg (31,3 lbs).
The unique feature of the DVA T series is the mechanical and acoustic compatibility between line array modules of the same family. This feature guarantees a great versatility in terms of both using and configuring the products.
