So... if you had a broken MOJO and need to replace it.... would it be hard to get to?  Is it easy to remove and does JBL stock replacements?

Yes, they have replacements... For the right price, you can buy anything! :D

But back to the VRX discussion, did you notice that a Line Array Calculator has now been released for the VRX models? I couldn't find the splay adapter as an option in there, though. Heh.

I saw that the other day as well, and played around a little. The results with a typical venue were less then impressive.... Maybe my mythical venue was just not the right application but the polars didn't seem to play nice.

I will also jump in and say that a properly deployed 4886 is far superior to a 932 rig in every aspect. Output, coverage,  consistency, quality.  I've used them as L/R hangs in small venues to stage front fills and outfills for A Level Artists.

Ok, I'll bite my tongue.... The 4886 has pretty poor rigging.

I think our general consensus last fall was that it might not sound AWESOME, it may also not sound TOO BAD....

Is Viagra popular on this forum?  (I wasn't aware there was a problem among sound people.;) 


Thanks TJ for the comments.   I've never used 4886 and just threw it out because I knew it was the small box in the Vertec line.  Looking at the specs now I see that the 4886 is a MUCH smaller box and I have a hard time thinking that it can keep up with VRX932 at the low end of the spectrum (2 6-1/2" drivers vs 1-12")  Of course, once you stack a bunch up the low end adds and the highs become the "problem".  I am also curious about the pattern consistency you mentioned.  I've never noticed a problem between VRX boxes in the vertical (it's harder to notice unless you turn the boxes sideways) but have noticed that the horizontal is not completely even (as Art alluded to).  The 4886 is specified as 110 degrees vs 100 for the VRX.  Any additional comments about the pattern?

The 4886's two sixes have a bit less surface area than one twelve (~40%), but they are handling a much smaller band! The VRX is just a two way box while the 4886. So I don't think it's reasonable to be comparing a the VRX 12" to the 4886 two 6.5" apples to apples. I think look at the 4886s two 6.5" and four 2.5" compared to the VRX single 12" is a closer comparison.

A typical 4886 deployment on sticks is 3 4886 per side. There is no shortage of output compared to VRX. The difference is not subtle.
