FAST - Innovative Passive Crossover Design
The VLS Series passive column system introduces another first for TANNOY in the form of Focused Asymmetrical Shaping Technology (FAST).
An innovative new passive crossover network design, coupled with transducer technology adapted from QFlex, gives VLS Series loudspeaker products unique acoustic performance benefits not previously seen in a passive product of this type.
Central to this is its asymmetrical vertical dispersion, gently shaping the acoustic coverage towards the lower quadrant of the vertical axis. By the nature of a typical application, an ideal column loudspeaker should be biased in the vertical plane, towards the audience and away from reflective surfaces above (like ceilings) which are detrimental to intelligibility. As well as this ‘passive fixed steering’, FAST also facilitates quicker, easier installation with less need for tilting or specific concern for optimal mounting.
