JBL VRX Series Powered Speakers Now Available

JBL Professional has announced the VRX932LAP 12-inch powered loudspeaker and the VRX918SP 18-inch powered subwoofer. Utilizing the JBL DrivePack DPC-2 amplification system, both models are fully self-contained, powered loudspeakers whose performance has been optimized through integrated DSP.

Designed for use in arrays of up to five units, the VRX932LAP is a 12-inch, 2-way powered line-array loudspeaker featuring a DPC-2 amplifier module that provides 1,750 Watts of peak power. The VRX918SP is a powered subwoofer system containing a 2268FF neodymium magnet patented Differential Drive, 18-inch woofer in a front-loaded, vented enclosure. The VRX918SP features a built-in JBL DrivePack DPC-2 amplifier module designed in cooperation with Crown that provides 1,500 Watts of peak power.

The VRX932LAP features JBL Professional’s 2408J Annular Ring Diaphragm HF driver technology. The Constant Curvature Waveguide mounts three compression drivers on a continuous arc. When additional VRX932LAP loudspeakers are added to the array, the uninterrupted arc continues. In effect, all the drivers work together as if they were a single driver on a very long waveguide. Since there are three drivers in each VRX932LAP loudspeaker, the combined power handling and acoustic output of the system is far greater than a single driver could achieve.

The VRX932LAP uses “amplitude shading” to shape the coverage of the array. For example, switches on the input plate control the output of each high-frequency section in the array. This allows users to set the upper enclosures in an array configuration to deliver more output to reach a distant balcony, while the lower box is shaded back to reduce excessive levels at the front of the listening area. This creates a more coherent sound field.

Designed specifically for use in arrays with the VRX932LAP, the VRX918SP is a powered subwoofer system containing a 2268FF neodymium magnet patented Differential Drive, 18-inch woofer in a front-loaded, vented enclosure. The VRX918SP features a built-in JBL DrivePack DPC-2 amplifier module designed in cooperation with Crown that provides 1,500 Watts of peak power. A DSP-based resident input module provides system optimization, EQ and crossover functionality.

JBL’s VRX Series Powered Speakers are available now starting at $2,549. More information the JBL VRX932LAP 12-inch powered loudspeaker and the VRX918SP 18-inch powered subwoofer.
