Wohler VMMDA-1 Overview

The compact and light VMMDA-1 2-Channel HD/SD-SDI, AES, and Digital / Analog Audio Monitor from Wohler Technologies is a compact and lightweight unit offering full-range fidelity. Two front-firing midrange tweeter speakers and a compact high-performance woofer are arranged in its bi-amp design. The speaker systems are protected against blowout by limiters. The summed bass feature allows for audible detection of out-of-phase conditions.

Electronic rather than acoustic cancellation of bass frequencies provides positive audible detection of out-of-phase (reversed polarity) audio feeds. The unit features two 10-segment VU LED bar graph level meters. Fast and averaging phase LEDs give visual alert of out-of-phase conditions. A 3-way toggle switch selects between the analog or digital inputs.

Muting may also be activated from a switch remote (sold separately) from the rear panel. An auxiliary analog output of the selected analog or digital source is provided on the rear panel.

This VM Series monitoring unit is magnetically shielded to allow interference-free operation. Its lightweight and shallow depth chassis makes it suitable for use in portable and mobile vehicle applications.

Only one rack space high, but produces a powerful 96 dB SPL at 2'
