Tannoy QFLEX 16
Digitally Steerable Powered Column Array Loudspeaker

OUR PART #  QFLEX16V2


The Tannoy QFLEX 16 is a digitally steerable powered column array loudspeaker. It has 16 independently controlled drivers, integrated DSP and BeamEngine GUI control for installation applications. It is designed as a complete solution for installed applications with challenging acoustics, such as houses of worship, transportation hubs, convention centres, conference facilities, shopping malls, performing arts centres and museums. The heart of the system is our proprietary VNET loudspeaker networking platform, which comprises both software and hardware DSP components that produce extremely-high speech intelligibility, impactful music reinforcement, and complete loudspeaker system diagnostics and monitoring.

While many competing steerable arrays allow only a modest steering range across specific frequencies, the QFLEX 16 has a class-leading +/- 70° steering control, plus 16 channels of integrated DSP and amplification for consistent and highly intelligible full-range voice and music applications. The first digitally steerable column array loudspeaker of its kind, QFLEX 16’s revolutionary BeamEngine technology steers the the full-range sound away from surfaces that cause reflections. The intuitive BeamEngine GUI allows the designer to specify target areas. Rather than only providing a limited palette of opening and steering angles, the BeamEngine GUI generates a steering algorithm that is tailored for that specific area. The resulting asymmetrical pattern delivers similar sound pressure levels (SPL) in both the near and far field for superb coverage and intelligibility – all in a very aestheticallypleasing package.

Tannoy QFLEX 16 Features:

  • Digitally steerable column array speaker system provides extremely high intelligible speech and music reinforcement
  • Class leading +/- 70° steering control with 16 channels of integrated DSP and amplification
  • Intuitive BeamEngine GUI for asymmetric pattern creation and even near and far field SPL coverage
  • Ideal for the most challenging acoustic environments due to extended frequency range steering control
  • (8) 3" low frequency drivers and 8 1" high frequency drivers with individual 100 Watt Class D amplifiers and integrated cutting edge DSP
  • For installation applications with coverage distances up to 25 m (82')
  • High density array of transducers with proportional frequency spacing prevents aliasing artefacts
  • Fully integrated amplified speaker system connects to other TANNOY VNET enabled products
  • Accessory options for constant voltage systems, Audinate Dante* digital audio networks, Ethernet control, and AES3 break in interface
  • AES3 input and link connections on RJ-45 connectors with internal sample rate conversion up to 96 kHz
  • Fully PA/VA compliant
  • Architecturally styled aluminium enclosure with a semi matt white painted finish
  • Corrosion resistant aluminium perforated grille
  • Included custom brackets allow quick and accurate installation
  • 3-Year Warranty Program
  • Designed and engineered in the U.K.
