New Compact Voice Alarm System

The VX-3308WM is a combined PA and VA system based on the VX-3000 system and is certified according to the European Standard EN54-16. It is designed to be wall-mounted requiring little space and can be operated as a stand-alone unit as well as being combined with all VX-3000 units. Due to the scalable and integrated architecture of the VX-3000 system, the VX-3308WM is an ideal solution for distributed locations, for example, to cover the many floors of a high-rise building.

It provides 8 speaker line outputs/zones that can be switched between two amplifiers. This allows broadcasting two different audio signals simultaneously on the same speaker lines. The amplifier modules can be easily mounted and removed. Up to 3 power amplifier modules of different wattages can be mounted, two of which drive the speaker lines and one is a standby amplifier. Each amplifier channel has the following DSP functions: different filter types (PEQ, HPF, LPF, shelving, CD-horn EQ, notch), compressor and delay that enables appropriate acoustic adjustment for any broadcast area. The smart ANC function enables the control of ambient noise and is not affected by the audio signal it controls. Therefore, the sensor’s installation location is not critical. The monitoring of the speaker lines can be selected between impedance monitoring with selectable pilot tone or by end-of-line modules.

The VX-3308WM has 4 balanced audio inputs with selectable sensitivity from microphone up to line level, with phantom power selection for microphone use. The inputs can also be set for receiving an emergency broadcast from another VA system of higher priority and broadcast it under the condition of the emergency mode. Up to 8 remote microphones can be connected via RJ45 ports; two of which can be emergency microphones. The following DSP functions are available for each input channel: different filter types (PEQ, HPF, LPF, shelving) and a compressor. Helpful features such as feedback suppressor or voice-controlled broadcast activation (VOX) enhance the usability of the system.
