JBL Professional VERTEC® Line Array System Family Grows With New Improved Compact Models

Enhancing the dominant position of its industry-leading VERTEC® Series line array family, JBL Professional is now offering two upgraded compact models. The VT4887A full range high directivity line array element and the accompanying VT4881A single 18-inch arrayable subwoofer each offer improved acoustical performance and higher output capabilities when compared to their successful predecessors. Appropriate for concert touring firms, A/V rental companies, and live-performance venues alike, the new models are designed for deployment in theaters, auditoriums, houses of worship and performing arts centers, providing audio professionals with a broad, flexible range of sound reinforcement solutions.

The VT4887A has extended low frequency response to 55 Hz through use of JBL’s new 2268J-1 8-inch woofer. An additional 2 dB of output and one-third octave of low-frequency extension is available when compared to its predecessor, the VT4887. A unique new integrated port/handle assembly aids in low frequency extension. The model also incorporates a newly-optimized mid/high frequency network and new high frequency elements, JBL’s 2408H component transducer. Frequency range is 55 Hz-22 kHz (-10 dB).

At only 30.4 kg (67 pounds), the VT4887A is ideally suited for use in multi-box arrays, as down fill elements in main arrays made of larger VERTEC models, or as extended-range fill speakers in concert and special-event applications. Dual NL-8 and NL-4 input connectors provide connectivity options. Pre-configured to accept a JBL Drive-Pack® amplifier module, the VT4887A enclosure has standardized mechanical and electrical fittings to receive the DP-2 electronics package. A wheeled transport dolly and rugged soft cover is contained in the available VT4887-ACC Accessory Kit.
