Next Generation Dual 12" Line Array Loudspeaker
JBL VTX A12 is a complete tour sound solution for mid- to large-size touring applications and high-end fixed installations. VTX A12 was designed from scratch to address the unique challenges of rental companies, FOH engineers and tour sound production crews. Next-generation JBL transducer technology and a high-frequency waveguide design deliver unmatched performance, sensitivity and coverage. A patented JBL rigging mechanism and redesigned suspension system streamline deployment and setup. And refinements to the physical design maximise reliability and versatility, while minimising size and dramatically reducing weight. VTX A12 isn’t just a superior line array—it’s a completely new way to approach tour sound.
INSIDE THE INNOVATIONS
Every component inside the VTX A12 loudspeaker was designed from scratch for linear performance, high output and consistent coverage. Together, the completely redesigned low-, mid- and high-frequency sections deliver the highest output per weight, improved low-frequency extension, and 90-degree directivity down to 250 Hz.
VTX A12’s new high-frequency (HF) section features three uniquely designed drivers that combine the HF phasing-plug and waveguide into one part, which helps provide better tolerances and increased sensitivity, while reducing distortion and overall weight.
Improving upon the patented JBL Radiation Boundary Integrator (RBI), the all-new VTX A12 RBI combines four 5.5” mid-frequency drivers into the high-frequency waveguide—providing a smooth horn surface for the high frequency section.
A lightweight 12” neodymium low frequency woofer (LF) features a 4th-generation Differential Drive design, with a new dual-voice coil, dual-magnet arrangement that increases linear excursion, power handling and sensitivity.
THE NEW LOOK OF VTX A12
VTX A12 features a new full-face grill design that reduces the number of exposed components and protects the loudspeaker from extreme weather and road conditions. The enclosed grill helps the system achieve a higher Ingress Protection rating (IP55), and can be finished in a variety of colours to suit fixed install applications. The grill is under tension, virtually eliminating noise that can emanate from the perforated grill and degrade sound quality.
VTX A12 marks a giant leap forward in how the loudspeakers are rigged and transported. To facilitate quicker deployment, array elements are stacked four per vertical transporter (VT) cart in a 10-degree collapsed position. A patented internal locking mechanism makes it easy to set arrays from 0.25 to 10 degrees using selector pins. Once the system is suspended, the mechanism automatically locks the cabinet angles at the designated positions.

Dual 12” Line Array Loudspeaker with 120-degree Dispersion
RRP ex VAT: £10,000.00
The JBL A Series is a complete tour sound solution for mid- to large-size touring applications and high-end fixed installations. JBL VTX A12W was designed to address the requests from rental companies, FOH engineers and tour sound production crews who appreciated the advances introduced in the VTX A12, but needed wider horizontal coverage for their applications. Like the VTX A12, next-generation JBL transducer technology and a high-frequency waveguide design deliver unmatched performance, sensitivity and coverage—and now a 120-degree dispersion pattern ensures coverage for a variety of…View details
