The Samson Resound VX8.1 is a portable column array system that delivers premium sound in a sleek, easy-to-transport package, perfect for mobile DJs, bands, singer-songwriters or anywhere high-quality sound reinforcement is needed. This active 700-watt system includes a 12" subwoofer with a 3-channel mixer and eight 3.5" drivers arranged in a vertical column array that provides 120°–200° of horizontal coverage.
Eight 3.5" drivers are arranged in an interlocking, 2-segment column array, coupled (via an extension segment) with a 12" subwoofer that can produce up to 125dB SPL. To ensure sound is delivered across an entire audience, the VX8.1 provides a horizontal coverage angle of 120° with the full array in center position, as well as 200° with the two array segments rotated 45° in opposite directions. Meanwhile, the system's subwoofer delivers tight low end down to 40Hz.
Power and Connection
Featuring a lightweight Class D amplifier that delivers 700 watts of power to the system (350W Sub / 350W Array), not to mention onboard 4-preset (Music, Live, Speech, DJ) DSP processing, the VX8.1 has what it takes to fill large rooms with stunning sound. Its 3-channel mixer includes connections for microphones, instruments and line devices. Also, backing tracks or music playback can be conveniently streamed via Bluetooth® from any mobile device.
Constructed of solid plywood with textured paint and steel grilles, the VX8.1 is durable to handle from gig to gig. In addition, the system's interlocking components make setup a breeze, with no need for cables or stands. Plus, a Thru output enables the ability to integrate a second VX8.1 system and further expand your sound.
