UK - Sound Technology, UK distributor of Harman Professional Solutions, reports that the JBL VTX A8 dual 8” line array loudspeaker is now shipping in the UK and available for demo at the company’s Hertfordshire demo facility.
VTX A8 brings JBL Professional’s flagship VTX A Series technology to compact solutions for small- to mid-size rental and installed applications. It combines proprietary JBL transducers and latest-generation high-frequency waveguide acoustic design to provide unmatched performance, efficiency and 110 degrees of horizontal coverage.
For VTX A8, next-generation transducers and physical design refinements were custom-engineered by JBL to integrate more drivers into a smaller, lighter cabinet for a compact footprint, while still maintaining high output and sonic consistency with the VTX A-Series family.
The VTX A8’s 8” neodymium low-frequency woofer is based around JBL’s 4th-generation Differential Drive technology, featuring a dual-voice coil, dual-gap configuration that maximises excursion, power handling and sensitivity. Midrange drivers are integrated into JBL’s patented Radiation Boundary Integrator (RBI) for a seamless transition across each band and maximum transducer density.
And VTX A8 integrates two instances of the JBL 2423K 2” compression driver found in the larger VTX A12. The innovative JBL 2423K driver combines the compression drive, phasing plug and line array waveguide in a single part, which provides increased accuracy and sensitivity, along with lower distortion and lighter weight.
VTX A8 adopts the signature VTX A Series full-face grille design, which protects components from extreme conditions and contributes to a high Ingress Protection rating (IP55); grilles can be finished in a variety of colours to suit fixed installations.
