Thank you for choosing a dBTechnologies Product!
VIO L210 is the new dBTechnologies flagship 2-way professional active line array module. It is equipped with: one
1.4” neodymium compression driver exit (3” titanium voice coil) and two 10” neodymium woofers (2.5” voice coil).
The full-range acoustical design includes an efficient waveguide and a phase plug with phase correctors, in order to
reach the best coherence in line-array configuration. The mechanical design allows an easy, accurate and quick
installation in flown or stack use. The powerful DIGIPRO® G3 amplifier section, capable of handling up to 900 W
(RMS power), is controlled by a DSP, which can perform a detailed customization of the output sound of the speaker.
In particular, thanks to the new dual rotary encoder interface, it is possible to accurately tune the line-array
configuration coverage, using the FIR filter technology. In addition, the integrated RDNET connections are useful for
a remote in-depth line-array control and configuration.

are in the rear amplifier control panel:
WARNING
The fuse is factory set for 220-240 V operation.
If it is necessary to change the fuse to 100-120 V range:
1. Disconnect the speaker from any cable
2. Wait 5 minutes
3. Substitute the fuse with the correct one supplied
a)
Once you have properly set up the mechanical
line-array configuration (see also the VIO L210
complete user manual and accessories instructions for
further information), connect the audio input (1) of the
first module of the array. Then connect the useful link
audio output (1) to other VIO L210 modules, for the
connection of all the line-array elements. Set the Audio
Attenuation (6) of the loudspeakers to 0 dB.
b)
Check the rear panel
reference label for a proper DSP
regulation in line array. Please
note
that
this
kind
of
configuration can be set and
modified also by the use of
remote
controller
(RDNet
Control 2 or RDNet Control 8)
and software (dBTechnologies
Network). For this information
see the chapter (5).
In this rear label (“QUICK
CONFIGURATIONS”) you can
find the suggested position of
rotary switches (5) for each type
of
installation
(Speakers
Coupling positions and High
Frequency
Compensation).
These settings are the main
acoustic corrections to create
the best coupling between the
elements of your line-array, in
order to obtain the best
coverage conditions.
In particular, the “SPEAKER
COUPLING” rotary acts mainly
on low frequencies, and it can be
set in 6 positions, depending on
the number of elements of line-array.

5) Software (dBTechnologies Network and
dBTechnologies Composer)
A seventh “Bass boost” position assign particular
emphasis on the lower frequencies, while the “service”
one allow USB port communication for firmware
updating. The “HIGH FREQUENCY COMPENSATION”
can act on medium-high frequencies. The user can
choose a “FLAT” position (which give a flat
equalization in this frequencies band), and other 7
positions, depending on the distance between the linearray and the audience (in meters and feet).
VIO L210 can be fully remote controlled via RDNet.
The connection details have been illustrated in the
chapter 4 (“d” point). In remote control mode, the use
of free professional software, developed by
dBTechnologies,
allows
a
complete
system
management:
dBTechnologies
Network
and
dBTechnologies Composer.
c)
Connect the power link output (10) of the first
module to the mains input (9) of a second VIO L210
module of the line-array, and so on, in order to link the
power supply between all the elements.
The
maximum linkable rated power and current depends
on the first module connection (type of cable, type of
connector used). The plate data give information
about the entire linked line-array system. The
maximum number of linkable modules is 10 VIO L210s
at 220-240 V, and 7 VIO L210s at 100-120 V.
a) dBTechnologies Network
d)
In case of remote control, connect the proper
Data Input (2) of the first module of the line-array to
the hardware remote controller (RDNet Control 2 or
RDNet Control 8) with cables equipped with etherCON
connectors. Then connect the Data Output (2) of the
first module to the Data Input (2) of the second one,
and so on. When the RDNet network is on and it has
recognized the connected device, the LED “Link” (3) is
on. The other LEDs (3) “Active” start blinking when
there is the presence of data transmission, the
“Remote Preset Active” advise that all the local
controls set on the amplifier panel (level, DSP presets,
etc.) are by-passed and controlled remotely by RDNet.
See also RDNet Control 2 and RDNet Control 8 user
manuals for further information.
The software which must be used in case of remote
control is dBTechnologies Network. This software can
control different speakers in different configurations.
It allows a complete remote control and a full real-time
monitoring in various scenarios. For example, the user
can control a setup with 2 line-arrays of VIO L210 and
3 VIO S318 subwoofers, and change different
parameters while the entire system is sounding.
It can also offer a deeper loudspeaker control than the
simple rear amplifier panel rotaries.
It can be downloaded for free from the official site:
e)
Connect the power supply (9) to the first
module. The related “Ready” LED (7) turns on,
signaling the proper power connection. The “Signal”
LED (7) start blinking at the presence of audio signal
(greater than -20dBu). Avoid audio distortion
conditions, potentially signaled by the “Limiter” LED
(7).
