The new VX 8M can combine with any Tannoy VX loudspeaker or VSX Series high performance subwoofer
UK - Tannoy has introduced a new addition to its VX Series range of premium grade passive sound reinforcement loudspeakers, with the new model heralding a number of subtle changes across the range to provide more flexible solutions for mobile and versatile environments.

The VX 8M is a new full range Dual Concentric loudspeaker from Tannoy, providing a compact, yet punchy and sonically vibrant solution for small-to-medium scale performance sound reinforcement. With a tightly controlled 90 degree dispersion for optimum coverage and forward gain, the VX 8M has a peak output of 119dB and a recommended amplifier power of 260w, making it a powerful and versatile performer for a wide range of applications.

A new rugged highly compact birch plywood enclosure - available in textured black and white paint finish - has been ergonomically redesigned to offer a greater degree of flexibility, while maintaining the power and sonic clarity users have come to expect from Tannoy's VX Series range. The new cabinet design includes 40 and 60 degree angles, making the VX 8M ideal for use as a dedicated floor monitor, with the 8" driver providing exceptional vocal monitoring clarity. The enclosure's added pole mount and vertical yoke (options as standard) mean the user has a range of mounting options at their disposal, whatever the chosen application or setting.

Stuart Archibald, product manager for Tannoy, said: "The original VX 8 model is one of our most popular models in the range, but we knew we could maintain that sonic clarity and also offer an extra set of features targeted to a particular user and market segment. The new VX 8M model offers unrivalled flexibility in terms of use and mounting location. From the floor to a table top or pole mount to flying bracket, this new cabinet can be mounted in any way you choose, making it perfect for any application where crystal clear sound reinforcement is required."

Targeted to small and medium sized applications, such as corporate events, house of worship, performance spaces, portable PA and the likes, the new VX 8M can combine with any Tannoy VX loudspeaker or VSX Series high performance subwoofer, precision engineered to deliver high impact, low and ultra-low frequency reinforcement in a compact format.
