Hi all 

I just made a impulsive buy of some very cheap Tannoy. It's 2x VQ60 and 2x VS218DR and im picking it up later this week.

Music "support" aren't really helping in supplying a preset for this combo even though i have the correct Lin ea Research DSP and i can only find the VQ60 preset in the manual without the sub. The boxes are in the Lake load library but all settings are hidden so can't extract them from here.  

Anyone has the preset/settings for this exact system?

Any experience with these boxes? On paper they look great but searching online gives mixed reviews.

I do feel for you with the 'support' from music group.
I have had similar experience recently with Midas and Turbo spares/info.
They seem quick to introduce new stuff, but not so hot on supporting the legacy of the brands they constantly brag about.
Hopefully someone on this forum has the settings to offer you.

I have used the VQ60 at the Waterfront in Norwich a few years back.  They have similar (separate processing and amps - not the active VQnet stuff), and were having discussions with sales rep at the time to obtain the correct/better presets.  
They had the 2x18 / 2x15 / 2x vq60 per side configuration.
The first year i used it there it sounded good.... the following year it sounded amazing!  
I think there were issues at the time when Lake/Lab joined the party and there was a rush to update to use FIR settings vs. the IIR presets supplied when it was installed.
I'm not sure what they ended up doing, but maybe try and contact the tech staff at the venue?

To reassure you about your purchase though, I must mention that the Norwich VQ system replaced 3 stacks a side of KF850/SB850.   And in my opinion, it walked all over it!
The vocal headroom and clarity from the Tannoy compared to the 'industry-standard rider box' made me realise that coaxial compression drivers were the future.

I really hope you get the results you are after, tuned correctly its a great system.

Ok, thanks for the info. 

Do you know how to contact the Waterfront? 

Can't really seem to find anything online besides ticket sales.
