VT-20
« on: March 26, 2014, 08:36:02 pm »

Does anyone have any experience with the JBL VTX VT-20 boxes? I currently run a 4888 rig and was thinking about an upgrade or simply expanding on what I already have. Your input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Tom,

No personal experience with the VT-20, but the 110 degree dispersion may be a bit wider than you would find useful.

If those are "JLB degrees" it's really 90 at least above 3k, based on my VerTec experience.

As of about a month ago the presets weren't finished for the VT20.  I heard them with what they had, but I can't comment on the sound since the processing wasn't complete.   And, although I didn't whip out my protractor, I was impressed by the wide coverage pattern.

The company I work for just purchased 56 V 20. They sound amazining. The rigging is great. They transport 4 tall on a cart.

The D2 drivers are real beasts. They can deliver a lot more high end than the usual suspects, especially above 10kHz. I haven't heard the V20, but the V25 is really an improvement compared with the VerTec. The V20 is a size previously not offered in the VerTec range. So it depends on what you're trying to replace...

I would be replacing a Vertec 4888 rig. How do the V20s compare?

Thank you

Shiny.  New.  Better horizontal coverage.  Better top octave.  Better rigging.  Probably louder, too.

Get a demo rig, you're about to spend 200 large...

I don't know aout louder: It's smaller, smaller speakers, power handling seems the same. It would be surprising if it was louder by the module.
