crestVersarray PRO is designed for all mid-sized line array applications
Germany - Crest Audio’s Versarray PRO powered line array made its entrance at ProLight + Sound 2018. Comprising the Versarray PRO VR112 line array element and the VR-PRO 215 sub, Versarray PRO is designed for all mid-sized line array applications including live entertainment, theatres, houses of worship and more.
The VR112 benefits from Crest Audio’s latest-generation Mark III ribbon drivers and proprietary Clear Form Waveguide for crystalline high end reproduction. The low end is served by the 12” NEO Black Widow neodymium loudspeaker with dual 4” voice coils which works in conjunction with Crest’s Ram Air Cooling (RAC) design for even greater efficiency and power handling. The compact, flyable VR-PRO 215 sub, also with RAC design, features dual 15” Black Widow Low Rider drivers and delivers full power down to 35 Hz and a peak SPL of 135dB. Both elements benefit from 3000 W of available dynamic power.
In terms of rigging, Versarray PRO is a fully articulating array thanks to an easy-to-adjust three-pin system on the back, which enables a range of configurations that are not possible in other comparably priced systems.
Versarray PRO includes Auto-Hang DSP technology, a quick and easy push-button control option that allows you to adjust the array according to the number of cabinets in the array, speaker positioning and more. Combined with the innovative FlyQWIK hardware, a Versarray PRO system can be accurately deployed in a fraction of the time required by competing systems.
*Following their recent European unveiling at ISE 2018, Crest Audio showcased their powerful new Class D ProTour Series power amplifiers in Frankfurt. Designed to meet the most demanding requirements of portable and fixed installation audio systems, the ProTour Series delivers high output power, efficient cooling, onboard DSP, Dante network connectivity, and USB/Ethernet connectivity for monitoring and control.
