The Tannoy VLS 15 (EN 54) Passive Column Array Loudspeaker with 15 Drivers is an 800-Watt passive column array loudspeaker ideally suited for challenging acoustic and architecturally sensitive spaces where background/foreground music and speech reinforcement is required. Applications include airports, train stations, conference centres, houses of worship, stadium concourses, museums, theme parks and hotels. The heart of the loudspeaker system is its asymmetrical vertical dispersion, which gently shapes the acoustic coverage towards the lower quadrant of the vertical axis.

VLS 15 (EN 54)’s Focused Asymmetrical Shaping Technology (FAST) also facilitates quick and easy installation, with less need for tilting for optimal mounting. EN 54-24 compliance makes the VLS 15 (EN 54) the perfect choice where safety is a top priority. VLS 15 (EN54) packages this performance in a slender and narrow profile, aesthetically refined, powder coated aluminium chassis with curved stainless-steel grille.

Superb Performance

VLS 15 (EN 54)’s design comprises 7 vertically arrayed 3.5" low frequency drivers and 8 vertically arrayed 1" high frequency metal dome tweeters for pristine audio reproduction from 110 Hz - 35 kHz (-10 dB), with 120 dB peak SPL (1 m, Lo-Z). The UV and weather resistant aluminium enclosure provides 130° horizontal x +6° / -22° vertical dispersion for targeted coverage. Also certified for water and dust ingress protection to IP65 standard, the VLS 15 (EN 54) is an exceptional choice for challenging environments such as indoor swimming pools, saunas, or work areas with unusually high levels of dust or moisture, and outdoor applications.

FAST – Focused Asymmetrical Shaping Technology

Designed with an asymmetrical vertical dispersion pattern, the VLS 15 (EN 54) merges enhanced performance with simplified mounting to cover a wide range of installed applications. The vertical dispersion of the VLS 15 (EN 54) allows optimal zones to targeted for even and precise coverage. Additionally, in installations where conventional column loudspeakers require substantial downward tilt, the VLS 15 (EN 54) requires much less – even enabling flush mounting, for significantly improved visual aesthetics.

Low-Z or Transformer Operation

A multi-position EN 54 compliant tamper-resistant rotary switch on the rear panel allows the choice of either the low-Z, or the 70 / 100 V operating modes, with available transformer taps at 150; 75; 37.5; 19; 9.5, and 5 Watts.

Outdoor Applications

A right-angled water tight cable gland is supplied with the VLS 15 (EN 54) for use in outdoor applications with an input panel cover is secured to the cabinet using the four screws. Simply pass the wiring through the cable gland and make your connections on the provided barrier strip. A second strip is provided for linking additional loudspeakers in either low-Z, or 70 / 100 V distributed systems.

Attractive & Easy to Install

The stylish and durable extruded aluminium enclosure with stainless steel grille features a semi matt black paint finish that fits unobtrusively into even the most architecturally sensitive environments. Input is via a low insertion loss 150 W line transformer with multiple taps for 70 / 100 V line systems. A dedicated flying bracket, wall mount bracket, input panel cover plate, and weather resistant gland are all included for ease of installation. At only 11.7 kg (25.7 lbs), the VLS 15 (EN 54) is significantly lighter and easier to install than many competing products.


Utilising a pair of internally paralleled barrier strip connectors, the VLS 15 (EN 54) can either be connected to a low-Z amplifier, or used within a 70 / 100 V distributed system. The operation mode is easily selectable via a single switch located on the rear of the enclosure.

Build Quality

The architecturally styled corrosion resistant extruded aluminium enclosure is finished in a semi matt black paint and is complemented by a stainless-steel perforated grille. All VLS 15 (EN 54) mounting hardware is included and over-engineered for the ultimate in safety.
