JBL’s VT4888 3-way, midsize line array element features two 12” neodymium-magnet subwoofers, four 5.5” mid-range drivers, and two high-frequency compression drivers. These speakers are highly directed with a frequency range at -10 dB of 48 Hz to 18 kHz.
These elements are for use with the VT4888-SF and VT4888-AF suspension frames. The VT4888-ACC is the element’s accessory kit including a dolly and cover.
The VT/VerTec line-array series has been on stages alongside names like Aerosmith, Rush, Alicia Keys, Sheryl Crow, Miley Cyrus, and many more. Its reliability, power, and compact mid-sized form make it excellent for touring shows, short-term events, and fixed installations.
The JBL VT4888 is a three-way powered speaker that combines both technologies and performance.
With two 18″ woofers and a top side-firing 18″ driver, the VT4888 sounds bigger than its 3500 watts power rating indicates. The VT4888 features a three-way design for true line array performance, allowing firing of audio from different angles to create unmatched sound quality from a powered speaker system.
This loudspeaker also features pre-wired V2 Speakon and 1/4″ inputs for maximum connection options.
Whether your application is permanent concert touring, events, live DJing, installations, or band rehearsals at night worksites, this is the system for you. With a JBL VT4888 system in place, you will be able to deliver crystal-clear audio to any audience no matter how large they are.
