The VLS Series is the first Tannoy product to incorporate FAST™ (Focussed Asymmetrical Shaping Technology), delivering unique acoustic performance benefits including asymmetrical vertical dispersion, gently shaping the coverage towards the lower quadrant of the vertical axis. The VLS 15 packages this performance in a slender and narrow profile, aesthetically refined, powder-coated aluminium chassis with curved aluminium grille; ensuring a sleek and ultra-discrete appearance.

The VLS 15 is also now an EN-54 compliant loudspeaker - this comes as standard and is not an optional variant. No specific specification is required to meet the requirements of EN-54.

The device is IP65 rated for dust and water ingress, salt spray and UV resistant and subject to rigorous high/low operational temperature and humidity testing – making the VLS 15 suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Mounting is made easy via supplied flying and mounting brackets. Specification and design is aided by the use of Ease Focus v2.0 software, a generic, intuitive, and easy to use three-dimensional acoustic simulation software. The software and relevant tutorials are free to download from the Tannoy website.

Like the other two models in the range, the VLS 15 can be ordered in either black or white as standard, with custom RAL finishes available.
