The DVA T8 is a fully active, three-way speaker system equipped with the same innovative technologies that feature so prominently in the DVA T12. Its power supply, DSP, power amps, woofers and drivers were all developed and painstakingly tuned specifically for the DVA T8 system by the dBTechnologies team of engineers.
The DVA T8 sports constant directivity horns, HF drivers, andmidrange woofers optimized to deliver a uniform 100°-by-15°coverage pattern. It makes the most of two acoustical effects to help distribute SPL evenly. One is the vector addition of individual horns’ output; the other is cylindrical wave formation. These two effects come together to create a uniform coverage pattern that is easily adapted to different venues by varying the length of the array and adjusting the splay between individual components.
The 1” neodymium HF drivers feature 1.4” Mylar diaphragms. Exceptionally light and responsive, they deliver richly detailed signals with remarkably linear frequency response. Developed especially for use in line arrays, these drivers may be deployed in very close proximity to one another. This is essential to minimize interference in such arrays.
Loaded with a custom 6.5” neodymium midrange, the DVA T8also delivers excellent midrange response, which has such a formative influence on shaping the sonic image. The midrange is housed in a sealed chassis. Its high BL factor makes it even more responsive so that it renders transients faithfully. A phase plug feeds into a frontloaded horn tuned to achieve a uniform coverage pattern.
A powerful 8” neodymium woofer, paired with a 350W power amp, covers the low frequency range with an assertive punch that reaches down to 70 Hz.
