DB Technologies new Vio line array
« on: October 31, 2016, 01:23:52 pm »

So I'm in Dubai for the day attending the prolight and audio convention and DB Tech had their new line array on display outdoors. They're dual 10", had 6 a side and 4 of their 3x18 subs centred double stacked in end fire config. I'm a point source over LA guy, but man did these sound good.

It is by far the best LA they've created, way better then the T series (which are pretty decent themselves). I was about 20m back and just 6 a side had a ton of output and sounded really really good, very even and dynamic. No external processing, was literally playing through a laptop on iTunes. If you're in the market for a new line array system but don't want to spend l acoustic money, I would really consider giving these a listen. I'm not as I have my Danley rig, but I would definitely consider these if ever needed an LA rig.

Anyone else heard these? Thoughts?

Those I haven't heard. T4 and T8 up until today. The Vio is definitely a step above the T series. In comparison, EV's X-line Advance X2 was also playing, but it was completely unprocessed so it was putting out some harsh mids and hi mids at really loud levels and everyone was cringing and moving away from the area. Once the Vio played after, the floor filled up. I know of one sale made to a Nigerian guy right on the spot after a 15 minute demo, which didn't really surprise me.

Good day Uniz,

Many thanks for your feed back on the VIO. Yes on paper, DB seems to have taken the VIO one step further than the DVA series. Your feed back confirms it. The FIR filters and the phase plug, must be hugely responsible for it to sound really Good. Any indication on the price. When I checked last, the VIO 210 was price close to the T12. Now the T12 is a 3 way box, and the weight difference is just 1.3 Kgs. Did you hear the T12 and the T8 too? If yes, how do they compare with the VIO?

For a turnkey system 12 boxes + 4 subs + rigging was about 50k. Sounded better than a T8, haven't heard the T12.

The last  batch of T12 boxes I got costed me 3620 USD per box. Any import into India attracts a duty of 30 pct on the declared value, + 14.5 % VAT. This is with a 3 year warranty (one year on paper and the other two, a verbal contract.)

The T8 is 2,175 USD per box. 

This might help put things in perspective.

USD, did the conversion for you guys :) . If that price was in dirhams, I'd have picked up right away even though I don't intend on buying an LA system lol

It was about 3k per box and 4.5k or so per sub. Didn't get a pricing on the rigging hardware.

 :P I nearly had a heart attack and thus had to clarify. I would have flown to Dubai today if it was 50 K Dirhams.  ;D

Thanks once again for your valuable feedback. Very nice of you.

John we've got the little arrays and they are very good as far as cost/size goes we hang 4 pairs and 2 of the 12 inch flyable subs a side 5m up off vmb style stands along with 4 18 inch subs and it holds up well out to 130 feet or so, not for heavy rock but for the acoustic stuff we do its been great.

I heard the T8s and T12s a year ago. They looked great on paper but not up to expectations, especially when pushed. The L210 Vio sound amazing and get really loud without getting harsh, stressed or distorted. I bought 8 on the spot.

I see this is an old topic. But instead of starting a new one..

Has anyone else heard this box? VIO L210?

We currently have the HDL 30A on demo. And like other's have pointed out about this and it's bigger brother, it gets somewhat harsh to my ears when you turn it up.

The VIO also has the RD-NET which I'm pretty impressed with. Anyone also used DB's prediction software?
