The VIRO5 combines a soft, silk-domed tweeter for smooth tonality with a 5” 2-way coaxial speaker driver to achieve an impressive coverage range and high excursion. This unique acoustical composition delivers an uncompromised clarity and surprisingly low-frequency response. With the VIRO5 you achieve a 120W program power in any application you prefer.
AUDAC is proud to announce the brand new VIRO5 series. The VIRO5 is a 2-way coaxial loudspeaker that comes in both 8 Ohm and 16 Ohm variants and with optional toroidal transformer modules. Available both in black & white this loudspeaker will blow you away with its powerful punch delivered in a compact package.

Using the optional 70V / 100V line transformer enables the VIRO series to be used not only in low impedance installations but also in 70V or 100V systems. By simply removing the back plate, the transformer can be easily inserted ensuring the coaxial loudspeaker is ready to rock.
Crafted in high-grade aluminium with incredible attention to detail, the VIRO5 goes well beyond aesthetics. It also provides superior acoustic properties thanks to its material stiffness and seamless surfaces that eliminate any distortion of your sound.
The full aluminium constructions and stainless fasteners passed a 720 hours salt spray test to make sure it stands up in the most tough environments. In order to further comply with the IP55 certification, AUDAC made sure that front grill is water repellent and that VIRO is standard equipped with rubber cable grommets for fixed install along with optional Speakon connect. The VIRO5 really stands up to humidity, rain, snow, limited dust, UV rays and even extreme heat or cold.
The multifunctional mounting bracket that comes included allows for the VIRO5 to be mounted on any wall or ceiling. In addition, there are several optional mounting adapters for poles, stands & ground pins to achieve maximum flexibility in positioning your loudspeakers.
1) Cable entry plate
To connect the VIRO, the cable must pass through the backplate. The VIRO has two standard cable grommets in the provided openings. This grommet provides water tight protection. An optional speakON connection plate with two NL4MP connectors (CVS102) is available. It can be installed by loosening the four screws of the cable entry plate. To connect, the back plate must be released.
2) Safety bond insert
The VIRO5 has a M6 safety bond insert. This provides the option of mounting drop safety wires. Please check your local regulations if this is required.
The bracket of the VIRO is attached to the centre point of the speaker. It is designed in such a way that it can be fully rotated around the centre point. This allows the bracket to be mounted in all directions.
4) Water drainage holes
Two drainage holes are located at the bottom of the VIRO. The loudspeaker has a protection class of IP55 thanks to the sealing rubbers, the water-repellent cloth behind the grill and the drainage holes. Install VIRO at a minimum down tilt of 5°. Standing water is avoided trough this installation. At the same time, make sure that the drainage holes are located at the bottom.
5) Terminal block
The VIRO has the possibility of a link through connection. For this purpose, a 4-pole terminal block is provided. The wires coming from the amplifier must be connected to the left poles of the terminal block via the cable entry plate. The correct polarity is indicated above the connector. Make sure that the polarity is correct throughout the system.
6) Transformer module point
Mounting point for the optional 70/100V transformer module (TRV106).
