USA - CTS recently unveiled their new JBL by Harman VTX A8 line array speaker systems to an audience of clients and industry friends at their sixth annual CTS Jingle & Mingle event.
Based in Nashville, CTS is a full-service production company that specialises in providing audio, lighting, video and staging services for major concert tours, special events, houses of worship and more.
In order to offer better value and performance for its high-profile artists and clients, CTS recently purchased JBL VTX A8 compact line arrays which they put to the test at their sixth annual CTS Jingle & Mingle party. The event featured a performance by Nashville-based jazz artist Karlton Taylor and his band, and also served as the grand opening of CTS’s newly expanded operations center and warehouse.
“We work with JBL V20 and V25 speakers a lot, and we were blown away by the new JBL VTX A8 speakers,” explains Carl Taylor, CEO, CTS AVL. “The A8’s package is beautiful, and together with its size, output, sound quality and price, it was kind of a no-brainer for us. Also, the A8’s voicing is consistent with larger JBL speakers. You can use A12s for your mains and A8s as outfills or delay towers and the blend between them will be spot-on.
“You won’t notice a difference between the speakers’ tonal balance. When we showcased the A8 speakers at our annual Jingle & Mingle event, the guests all loved them and talked about them. A lot of clients said they want to use them on their next project, so that was a big success.”
CTS recently deployed A8 line arrays for Country Radio Seminar showcase performances by Blake Shelton, Zac Brown Band, Ashley McBryde, Cole Swindell, Dan & Shay and more.
“We look forward to using the A8 speakers in smaller theatres, corporate presentations and ballrooms to provide great sound quality in a smaller footprint,” says Taylor. “Also, we work in some venues with restrictions on how much weight we can hang from the ceiling. With the A8s, we can hang eight speakers where we could previously hang only five, and because they’re smaller boxes, we can still get the output and sound quality we need in an area that has weight restrictions on rigging.”
