The Voice-Acoustic VENIA-8sp DDA is a 2-way bi-amplified selfpowered column line array loudspeaker, equipped with 4 x 8" drivers and 4 x 1" compression drivers and internal 3.2 kW power amplifier module and the DSP loudspeaker management system with extensive features. The DSP has high computing power and all the standard controller functions.

DDA stands for a new generation of DSP and input boards that can process a variety of signals: DANTE, Digital AES/EBU, AES67 and analog inputs. The signals can be looped further.

The high-frequency drivers are coupled to a line array waveguide and produce a dispersion angle of 100° horizontally and 0°/-20° vertically via a large horn.

The HF section of the VENIA series provides a vertically asymmetrical sound pressure coverage with a plane wavefront. The principle of larger line arrays is transferred to the VENIA loudspeakers in a compact column format: the high-frequency energy is bundled to cover longer distances and the near filed is covered by curving with a lower energy content distributed to a larger area. The result is a very balanced level distribution across the entire listening area with very homogeneous sound distribution. This gives VENIA-8 an enormous advantage as a single loudspeaker and is also easier and faster to set up and commission than conventional line array systems.

With its slim appearance, the VENIA series makes a valuable appearance in all mobile applications and in fixed installations. The beautifully curved front grille with discreet mini-honeycomb perforation and large R50 side radii makes the loudspeaker look very elegant and integrate discretely even in architecturally sophisticated surroundings. With the optional X-Tension, a designer stand with the same enclosure format, the VENIA-8 becomes a design sculpture and can be raised to a visually appealing height. A steel base plate is available to ensure that the X-Tension stands securely. In addition, the X-Tension can be mounted on any subwoofer with an M20 flange.

Due to its low crossover frequency, the VENIA-8 can be combined with any subwoofer. With its above-average performance of almost 140 dB at a weight of just 35 kg, it is also a powerful Main-PA in combination with several subwoofers. A stereo pair of VENIA-8s can be combined with up to eight Paveosub-118. Thanks to the powerful high-frequency driver unit, the VENIA-8 always plays in a relaxed and pleasant manner, even at high volumes, and meets even the highest sonic demands.

The VENIA-8's sophisticated detail solutions and extensive range of accessories allow for a wide variety of applications and installations. The integrated pole mount, the tool-free mountable Voice-Acoustic Easyfly mechanism, or the U- and C-bracket and various M10 mounting points leave nothing to be desired. For best handling in mobile operation, up to 20 u-shaped handles can be mounted vertically and horizontally on the rear. A safety cable for secondary safety can be attached with a single-stud. Two VENIA loudspeakers can be operated in head stacking configuration, which extends the range of applications.

Like the other Voice-Acoustic loudspeakers, the housing is made of sturdy birch plywood of highest quality: CNC milled, grooved, screwed and waterproof glued. The surface is protected by a stable and moisture-resistant polyurea coating in black. White speakers and special colours with 2K textured paint are optional available. The Voice-Acoustic VENIA series sets a new standard in performance and design for high-performance column line array loudspeakers.

Control

A VENIA-8sp DDA can power a VENIA-8 bi-amp via a 4 pin cable.

The woofer and compression driver is in 8 Ω.
