KME Versio VSS 18
The Versio VSS 18 is a digital system unit with integrated, direct-radiating 18" subwoofer and three class D amplifiers with a prefixed 24 Bit / 48 kHz digital signal processor.
The analogue input signal is digitalized inside the input amplifier using a 24 bit AD converter, and remains consequently digital to the class D amplifiers' output. This technology is designed to avoid conversion losses, to increase the dynamic range and to achieve an unsophisticated audio reproduction. The unit is powered by a power supply with PFC (power factor correction).
The dispersion of the VSS 18 can be selected between omnidirectional or directional. The directional (cardioid) dispersion is realized by special, digital controlling in the VSS 18. The cardioid dispersion in the deep bass frequencies is designed to avoid unwanted backward sound reproduction of the subwoofer.
The VSS 18 is the base of the Versio systems SD7 and SD8, and heart and control center of directional radiating bass arrays. Two new digital working top parts (VL 750 (12") and VL 760 (15")) complete those systems. The tops have a multi-functional casing and can be used as top part, full-range, monitor or delay system via different presets.
