The VLFC very low-frequency control element is a self-powered loudspeaker defined by its sonic linearity and unique ability in reproducing extremely low-frequency signals at high, continuous levels with very low distortion. This very low frequency response, coupled with exceptional headroom and optimized rigging options, makes the VLFC an incredible tool for applications requiring very low frequencies used to enhance the audience experience. The VLFC is ideal for any application that would benefit from the impact of sub-sonic feeling: from large-scale tours, special effects in cinema to theme parks.
An optimally tuned, vented cabinet houses the VLFC’s two linear, low resonant frequency 18-inch cone drivers. A two-channel Class AB/H bridged amplifier with complementary MOSFET output stages supplies ample continuous and peak power to the drivers.
The VLFC’s 13 Hz to 30 Hz operating frequency response complements Meyer Sound’s 1100- LFC and other subwoofers in the lowest octaves even below the typical 20 Hz limit.
Protective, plastic skids are included on the bottom of the VLFC cabinet that securely align with the cabinet’s top slots. Units can be stacked normally or reversed for cardioid configurations.
Using the same footprint of the 1100-LFC the VLFC integrates seamlessly with existing infrastructure. The optional MRK-1100 rigging kit, available as a factory-installed option or field upgrade, includes captive GuideALinks™ that allow the loudspeaker to be flown from the MTG-1100 top grid. The GuideALinks, located at the front and rear of the cabinet, are easily set with convenient, pinned handles and slots.
The GuideALinks also accommodate reversed units for flown cardioid arrays. The MTG-1100 top grid can suspend line arrays comprised of up to 14 cabinets at a 5:1 safety factor. For touring and portable systems, the VLFC can travel securely in stacks of up to three units with the optional MCF-1100 caster frame.
The RMS™ remote monitoring system provides comprehensive monitoring of system parameters on a Windows®-based computer. The VLFC cabinet is constructed of multi-ply hardwood and coated with a black-textured finish. A hex-stamped, steel grille with acoustical black mesh protects the unit’s drivers. Other options include weather protection and custom color finishes for fixed installations and applications with specific cosmetic requirements.
