dBTechnologies: S 218

By PSW Staff December 1, 2018

Featuring a dual 18” subwoofer pairing in a voluminous bass-reflex housing, VIO S218 encompasses a vigorous audio performance and a ultra low frequency punch, extending down to 28 Hz: the perfect bottom end addition to large VIO L212 sound reinforcement systems. 

The system’s acoustical potential is driven by 2 Digipro G4® Class-D amplifiers delivering a total amount of 3200 W RMS and making this sub the perfect low-end extension of VIO arrays in larger sound reinforcement applications. The switched mode power supply is equipped with PFC (Power Factor Corrector) which greatly improves the efficiency of the system. This also grants a worldwide compatibility of the power supply (from 100V to 240V 50/60Hz) and limits power consumption. Furthermore, the power supply is 380V resistant, so the final amplifiers will be switched off in case of an undesired strike of 380V current, saving them from any damage. Exclusive technology of VIO S318 amplifier is IPOS (Intelligent Power-On Sequence), a circuit that controls the sequence in which the main power supplies of all units within an array ramp up.
