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.
Word is that it has the output of a 4889, without quit the same low end extension.  The compression driver has 10 db more output on the top end than even the VTX-25 driver.  The coverage is very even without the large changes at 1k that the other guys new products have.  Very easy to rig and transport.  Low rigging weights for situations that have weight limits.

I heard from my rep that the output went like this....

4888 < VTX20 < 4889 < VTX25

I do know that the VTX25 and 4889s look almost identical in EASE... As do the 86s and 87s.

Today i was on the phone with a JBL sales man in NJ. He told me that the VT20 is the same output with the VT4888.

True or False ?

I dunno, can you?

But really.
- Can you afford it?
- Are you turning away clients because you don't have another medium format line array system (or are you cross renting more than once or twice a month)?
- Does the V20 system overall meet your needs?
- Do you like how it sounds?
- Do its weight, rigging, and transportation specs meet your requirements?
- How did it sound when you demo'd it? (Yes, I'm being repetitive, but this is pretty important!)
- Do you have, or are you willing to purchase, the associated I-Tech HD amplifiers to power this new system? What about subs? Do you have VTX subs, or will you be willing to purchase a pile of S25s (probably) to complement the V20s? Harman is a bit picky about making sure their VTX rigs "Out In The Wild" sound how they're supposed to, with the right power and processing.

Just some thoughts...

I was thinking that as well. I can see the URL is for a legit company, albeit with a website that's out of date. Someone from that area would know better whether or not they're actually a player.

However, for the benefit of someone playing along at home, I figured putting out the various considerations any company should be weighing in their purchase process wouldn't be a bad thing! :)

Don't these new shinny rigs need a minimum cabinet purchase?

Correct. By the time everything is said and done it's an easy $500k purchase.
