And those are both what I meant by "Do you have, or are you willing to purchase, the requisite amplifiers that go with this system?" (And then again about subwoofers.)

Wheelin-and-dealin you can probably keep it to about $250k. There's some eBay listings right now for V20/S25 packages, all inclusive, with amps, flybars, and vertical transporters, that could allow someone to step up to the V20s for $125k or less, but keep in mind... you can have the best PA in the world, but if you don't know how to deploy it correctly, it'll sound like shit.

How do they compare to the Vertec 4888? SPL etc..
Thank you
Tom

Technically the 4888 is a larger box than the V20 rig.. That is why JBL developed the A12. The 4888 is still one of my favorite boxes for 3-6k people for a LOUD rock show.. I have done some BIG shows with only V20.. You can do Arena 270 with no problem with 48-60 V20..

For Ballroom shows the V20 is really a nice box.. No problem going 8 boxes on a 1/2 ton point. Very low profile and the rigging is a dream.. But other than that I would rather have the 4888 for larger higher impact shows.. If your shows are under 5k people and you have some nice subs you should have no issues with V20. Great for indoors or out but for long throws you may run out of gas is you are trying to do 200+ ft throws. 

Just my opinion..

Still pretty sure my 4888s with Lab amps and BSS366 v4 processing are the best sounding Vertecs in the wild.  ;D

Our 4889/ITech HD V5 rigs sound pretty good, Riley... but I'm a little biased. ;)
