The Tannoy VLS 30 Passive Column Array Loudspeaker with 30 Drivers is a 1600-Watt passive column array loudspeaker ideally suited for challenging acoustic and architecturally sensitive spaces where background/foreground music and speech reinforcement are required. Applications include airports, train stations, conference centers, 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 30’s Focused Asymmetrical Shaping Technology (FAST) also facilitates quick and easy installation, with less need for tilting for optimal mounting. VLS 30 packages this performance in a slender and narrow profile, aesthetically refined, powder coated aluminum chassis with curved stainless-steel grille.

Superb Performance

VLS 30’s design comprises 14 vertically arrayed 3.5" low frequency drivers and 16 vertically arrayed 1" high frequency metal dome tweeters for pristine audio reproduction from 90 Hz - 35 kHz (-10 dB), with 126 dB peak SPL (1 m, Lo-Z). The UV and weather resistant aluminum enclosure provides 130° horizontal x +3° / -11° vertical dispersion for targeted coverage. Also certified for water and dust ingress protection to IP65 standard, the VLS 30 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 30 merges enhanced performance with simplified mounting to cover a wide range of installed applications. The vertical dispersion of the VLS 30 allows optimal zones to targeted for even and precise coverage. Additionally, in installations where most conventional column loudspeakers require substantial downward tilt, the VLS 30 requires much less even enabling flush mounting, for significantly improved visual aesthetics.

Outdoor Applications

A right-angled water tight cable gland is supplied with the VLS 30 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 aluminum 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 19 kg (41.8 lbs), the VLS 30 is significantly lighter and easier to install than many competing products.


Utilizing a pair of internally paralleled barrier strip connectors, the VLS 30 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 aluminum enclosure is finished in a semi matt black paint and is complemented by a stainless-steel perforated grille. All VLS 30 mounting hardware is included and over-engineered for the ultimate in safety.
