Was floating around on FB on the JBL VTX line array page.

Great , they brought back the 4888.  Always thought those were the sweet spot in the Vertec line.

The A12 walks all over the 4888. It is sonically superior in every way to anything Vertec. It would be hard to make any comparison between the two boxes beyond both being 2x12".

Yup, the similarities would stop at cosmetics. VERY nice sounding system. Interested to see the adoption rate of this system in the market too. VTX V series is getting there but not at the rate I think it deserves. Some fantastic next gen tech behind this box. Excited for the official launch.

The thing holding VTX back imho is price. It needs to be priced closer to the older Vertec. The older stuff is priced to really be a value. If I'm going to spend that kind of money per box I would rather get d&b or L Acoustics or Meyer. That way I could at least charge more for the name "prestige". With JBL I wonder if clients would just say "hey, this is twice as much as your old Vertec rig and it's still a Vertec rig".

This is exactly what is happening. D&B, L'Acoustics, and Meyer are low-volume, specialist brands. JBL has become an audio generalist. That orange logo doesn't hold big value when it also appears on downmarket  consumer items
