Applications
• Portable and installed AV systems
• High SPL under balcony, stage lip, delay fill
• Live sound reinforcement
• Main PA in medium-sized venues such as clubs, theaters,
concert halls and houses of worship
• Corporate AV and other voice reinforcement applications
a-Class systems are ideal for working professionals seeking a better
balance of performance, versatility and value. Benefiting from the same
design principles behind VUE Audiotechnik’s flagship h-Class, a-Class
models bring similar voicing characteristics to a broad range of sound
reinforcement applications including houses of worship, theaters,
auditoria and portable PA.
The a-8 features a unique pentagonal (five-sided) shaped enclosure for
easy use in vertical or horizontal orientations. Handles and an integrated
pole mount system make portable use on stands or atop subwoofers a
breeze, while integrated hanging points provide flexible flying options.
And thanks to its consistent and predictable coverage, the a-8 works
equally well alone or as part of larger, multi-cabinet arrays in more
sophisticated applications. Arrays can be horizontal or stacked.
Every component in the a-Class range is manufactured to VUE
Audiotechnik’s exacting specifications to deliver a smooth and accurate All a-Class cabinets are manufactured to strict ISO compliances to
