The new VFR "i" revision brings the VF concept more fully into the
EAW product line. VFR "i" Series black versions provide a handle
designed into the rear of the cabinet. An installation only white
version comes without handles or a pole mount cup.
The VFR89i two-way, full range loudspeaker system includes a direct radiating, vented, 8-in LF cone transducer and a 1-in exit / 1.25-in
voice coil HF compression driver loaded with a large, square, user rotatable 90x50 coverage pattern horn built on the classic MK Series
horns. These horns deliver exceptional high frequency dispersion,
and their square shape lets users "rotate the enclosure around the
horn" to maintain directivity in a horizontal configuration.
Because VF Series full range systems (VFR/VFM) use HF sections
similar to those developed for the MK Series, EAW engineers could
employ the same revolutionary "beamwidth-matching" internal
passive crossover/filter networks that set the MK Series apart from
all other two-way systems. If powered by an EAW-specified amplifier
or via a UX Series digital signal processor, the VFR89i can enjoy
the benefits of EAW Focusing, a technology that eliminates the
anomalies inherent in the time domain of any loudspeaker.
The VFR89i black version includes traditional portable features such
as a pole-mount cup, parallel NL4 4-terminal connector, barrier
strip connector, an optional transformer and handles that accept
accessory covers for permanent installation. The white, installation only versions omit handles and the pole-mount cup but include
NL4 connector, barrier strip connector, an optional transformer, and
multiple mounting points. The new design leaves the enclosure
sides completely smooth and attractive. Six year warranty.
