Crest Audio’s® revolutionary Versarray™ PRO powered line array makes its entrance at ProLight + Sound 2018. Comprising the Versarray PRO VR112 line array element and the VR-PRO 215 sub, Versarray PRO is an ideal choice for all mid-sized line array applications including live entertainment, theatres, houses of worship and more. With integrated Dante® audio networking, built-in DSP, innovative flying hardware and world class components, the Versarray PRO powered line array delivers premium quality audio in a versatile, easy-to-set-up, networkable package.
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 patented 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 ingenious, easy-to-adjust 3-pin system on the back, which enables a range of configurations that are simply unachievable in other comparably priced systems. The result is near-perfect coverage and audio quality across a vast range of applications. Furthermore, 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.
As an active system, Versarray PRO features sophisticated on-board DSP processing including FIR filtering. Certain parameters may be accessed from the back panel for quick and easy initial set-up, or indeed the whole system may be configured and controlled remotely via a dedicated Windows-based software utility. Dante network control and audio are delivered via a single CAT5/6 cable, and redundant analog connections have also been included for rock-solid reliability.
Versarray PRO is the perfect solution for pro audio applications requiring high output, flawless coverage and pristine high fidelity audio in a compact, easy-to-deploy package.
