Focus Venue
Dear Reader,
Beam Steering for Concert Sound
As 2018 marks the 25th anniversary of our company, we
look back on 25 years of development experience that
includes over 15 years of know-how in digital technology.
This has led to exciting innovations and a comprehensive,
powerful product portfolio for both fixed installation and
mobile sound reinforcement.
PS-800 & PS-850
Recent additions to our portfolio include a one-of-a-kind
concert sound system with beam steering, a brand-new
series of intelligent DSP-controlled digital amplifiers, new
high-performance subwoofers and sophisticated digital
audio networking technology. New line source speakers
and a high-class pro audio ceiling speaker complete
the product range. As always, development and production of all new Fohhn systems takes place in house in
Nürtingen, Germany.

THE
FUTURE
OF
THE
LINE
ARRAY
IS
STRAIGHT
The system is always flown or stacked straight.
Sound beams are controlled in real time via software.
Focus Venue combines the sound
and performance of a traditional line
array with the flexibility and precision
of a vertical beam steering system.
The side-lobe-free mode and the
cardioid technology allow previously
unavailable control of your sound and
thanks to the scalability of Focus Venue,
it´s always the perfect system whether
you‘re playing in a club or an arena.

Reinforcements for the low end:
our new concert sound subwoofers.
Focus Sub Array:
It‘s in the system.
With the launch of our new PS-800 and PS-850 subwoofers, both of our latest
concert sound systems (Focus Venue and PT-70) are powerfully complemented in
the low-frequency range. By combining all of these systems with our new DI-Series
amplifiers and sophisticated accessories, a perfect integral system is formed.
Using Fohhn subwoofers powered by DI-Series system
amplifiers allows for real-time control of a sub array’s
dispersion characteristics via Fohhn Audio Soft.

25 years of experience in professional audio technology.
15 of those in digital technology.
DI-Series amplifiers
Since Fohhn was founded, we have always had one goal in mind:
Make the world sound better! It was the same back in 2002, when,
as one of a handful of digital audio technology pioneers, we were
exploring new avenues.
Throughout the years, we have gathered experience
and gained a deeper understanding of our customers’ needs. This is reflected in our reliability and our
unique flexibility in both fixed installations and mobile
applications.
As Fohhn focuses on innovation, in-house expertise
continues to evolve: All R & D departments work hand
in hand building the future. Our new DI-Series offers
a glimpse into that future, presenting state-of-the-art
technology paired with almost infinite connectivity.
Over the years, our amplifier technology has stood
the test of time, employed within our active speaker
8
systems in the form of 8-, 16- or 32-channel DSPcontrolled amplifier modules.
Now, equipped with in-house developed, microprocessor-controlled power supplies and the latest generation of DSPs and CLASS D amplifiers, DI-Series
systems are emerging as true “Fohhn-only” products.
Of particular note are the amplifiers’ innovative
Fohhn power electronics. Within each power supply,
a microprocessor facilitates the monitoring of current,
temperature, humidity etc., ensuring an optimum
operation in any situation and environment.
2 x 2000 W
4 x 1000 W
up to 10 seconds peak power
The power supply is built to provide outstanding
power density, reliability and the maintenance of
long-lasting peak power.
DI-Series amplifiers come with a variety of digital
signal inputs, including AES/EBU, Dante™ or Optocore
(both optional), or analogue inputs. Their new
powerful DSP structure allows for extensive inputand output processing. The amplifiers are networkcompatible and can be remotely controlled and
monitored.

High-performance amplification built to order:
Get the amp that meets your requirements.
Whenever you order a Fohhn DI-Series amplifier, you can always preconfigure
its input- and output connections: Input options include AES/EBU (terminal block
or XLR), Dante™, Optocore, Fohhn AIREA and Analog (XLR). For signal outputs,
you can choose between terminal blocks or Speakon connectors.

Reliable. Compact. Smart.
Focus Venue’s interface for Dante™ Audio Networking.
ABX-5
In accordance with our aim to achieve compatibility with all digital audio networks,
we have developed an intelligent interface which allows for the integration of our
Focus Venue concert sound system into a Dante™ network: the ABX-5.
Linea Focus goes digital:
Welcome the new DLI systems.
NEXT
GENERATION
Fohhn
Beam Steering
TECHNOLOGY
The
Linea Focus
success story
continues.
In the course of digitalization,
we are ensuring that our
systems are compatible with
all digital audio networks. Our
award-winning Linea Focus
beam steering systems have
therefore been equipped as
standard with input interfaces
for AES/EBU and AIREA, the
Fohhn audio network system.
The systems are also optionally
available with interfaces for
DANTE™ or Optocore – or, as
before – with analog signal
inputs.
First available models include
the new DLI-130 and DLI-230.
All features at a glance:
• Integrated Dante™ Brooklyn II module
• Primary and Secondary Dante™ port for redundant applications
• 1000Base-T Ethernet connection
• No external power supply required when connected to Focus Venue
• Fohhn-Net tunneled over Ethernet
• Low latency implementation

The new VPT-70 PO.
From the very beginning, Fohhn has always
aspired to achieve optimum sound dispersion
control. This also applies to the actual
mounting of speakers. With the new poleoperated VPT-70 PO universal bracket,
adjusting your PT-70 system can be done
without any trade-off.
Our new Arc-Series speaker for halls, stadia, clubs or outdoor applications.
• Fully horn-loaded, 2-way, cardioid, 900 W
• 2 × 12˝ with horn and compression chamber / 1 × 1.4˝ on CD-horn
• Integrated x-over with electronic HF-driver protection (IPC)
• Two variants: dispersion of 90° x 50° or 60° x 50° (h x v)
• Weatherproof VSM/aluminum enclosure
• Optional 100 V version
• Max. SPL: 140 dB

This nifty version of the regular VPT-70 bracket
was inspired by a method used in the lighting
industry. Using the new bracket and an
adequate operating pole, you can easily adjust
a PT-70 speaker that is mounted, for example,
to a truss.
The VPT-70 PO is a real timesaver for mobile
installations on trade show stands, or on tour.

INTEGRATO-SERIES
From the very beginning, our ultra-compact Linea
LX-10/11 speaker system had met with a positive
response from customers. So it came as no surprise when audio planners expressed their wish for a
system that could offer the same level of sound
quality, yet be fully integrated – almost invisibly.
An in-wall speaker system, so to say. That’s when
we decided to develop a new pro audio ceiling
speaker based on the popular LX-10/11 system.
The result: the IG-100 and the IG-120 – the first
two models of the Fohhn Integrato-Series.

Optocore Input Interfaces:
With the speed of light.
Matter. Spirit. Heart.
The Fohhn Quality Pledge.
Our latest DI-Series and Linea Focus products can be operated within an
Optocore fibre network. Due to a purpose-built Optocore input interface,
operation does not require any additional external device. The fibre optic
cable can be connected directly to the respective Fohhn system.
When it comes to development and manufacturing, we translate our
visions into new products and aim to combine what’s desirable with
what’s possible.
As a result, we are highly aware of the quality of materials. That’s why
we always select the highest quality components from our specialist
suppliers.
As far as workmanship is concerned, we have one single aspiration:
Perfection. Our products are therefore manufactured with the utmost
care and attention to detail. To ensure quality throughout the entire
manufacturing process and – on site – within our projects, we use our
own Fohhn measuring systems.
There’s no substitute for our combination of manufacturing technology
and handwork – together with our passion for music, technology
and perfect sound. Our highly motivated team of more than seventy
specialized and dedicated employees consistently focuses on our
customers’ wishes.

Optocore is a network that enables routing of control signals via fibre optic cables. This permits
long cable runs (e.g. in airport installations) and a signal transmission with an extremely low latency.
The Optocore network also offers complex audio routing possibilities as well as redundant
(ring-shaped) cabling. For more information visit www.optocore.com.

For us, cheap mass production is out of the question. Instead, we make
exclusive, highly durable products that are built to last.
