VRX932LA-1 12″ Two-Way Line Array Speaker The VRX932LA-1 is a light-weight (46 lb / 21 kg) compact 12″ two-way line array speaker system designed for use in arrays of up to six units. VRX932LA-1 is the ideal choice when line array performance is needed but the venue size doesn’t call for the very long-throw characteristics of larger line arrays such as JBL’s VERTEC®. The Constant Curvature waveguide mounts three compression drivers on a continuous arc. When additional VRX932LA-1 speakers are added to the array the uninterrupted arc continues. In effect, all the drivers work together as if they were a single driver on a very long waveguide. Since there are three drivers in each VRX932LA-1, the combined power handling and acoustic output of the system is far greater than a single driver could achieve. VRX932LA-1 uses “amplitude shading” to shape the coverage of the array. Switches on the input plate allow, for example, the upper box in an array to reach a distant balcony while the lower HF section is shaded back to reduce excessive level at the front of the listening area. One or two VRX932LA-1’s may also be used on a tripod or over subwoofers. The integral rigging hardware is used to securely lock the array together while the dual-angle pole socket provides aiming flexibility. As many as six VRX932LA-1 speaker systems may be suspended in a single array for a nominal vertical coverage of up to 90°. Suspended applications require the JBL VRX-AF array frame (available separately). For applications in which the array must be aimed sharply down, a second array frame may be installed to the bottom of the array serving as a pull-back. VRX918S subwoofers are the ideal choice for a ground-stacked or flown VRX932LA-1 system. The SRX718S subwoofer is also compatible when suspension is not required.
