The VT4886 Subcompact Passive Three-Way Line Array Element
is designed to deliver highquality reinforcement of music and speech in a wide variety of applications including concert audio
and corporate A/V presentations of all types for both portable users and fixed venue installations.
The VT4886 is a very compact, lightweight enclosure
housing two 6.5" low frequency
transducers, four 2.5" midrange
components and two 1" high frequency compression
drivers. Advanced component design and density provide an extremely high power-toweight ratio with more SPL
output than other systems in its class.
A proprietary waveguide seamlessly integrates MF and HF section output in a nextgeneration implementation of JBL's patented R.B.I. (Radiation Boundary Integrator) technology, providing precise wavefront control and optimum inter-enclosure
coupling. JBL Thermomaster technology improves heat transfer while reducing mid section power compression
. LF transducers feature patented Differential Drive technology and are matched to a low-frequency diffraction
absorber with a tuned resonant-chamber that reduces cavity resonance
and cabinet edge diffraction
effects. A highly refined passive
network minimizes insertion loss
while ensuring precise impedance
matching between LF, MF and HF sections.
Application flexibility was a key design criterion. Possible uses include: suspended or ground-stacked (standalone or with the companion VT4883
) for FOH
, offstage fill, stereo
in-fill, center cluster or delay
cluster use; suspended with VT4883
enclosures and additional groundstacked VERTEC subwoofers for 4-way FOH
use; underbalcony (1-4 enclosures); distributed front fill (1-2 enclosures); modular, constant curvature horizontal line array
; downfill use with mid- or full-sized VERTEC models; pole mounting (tripod-mounted or with optional extension rod for the VT4883
). For optimum performance, DSP
presets have been specifically engineered for the abovementioned configurations.
