TECHNOLOGY


REFINED RBI WAVEGUIDE
Improved Horizontal Coverage
JBL's patented Radiation Boundary Integrator combines the high frequency and mid-range sections of the VTX V20 so the transition across each band is uninterrupted, undistorted and seamless.

DIFFERENTIAL DRIVE® TECHNNOLOGY
Enhanced Performance and Dramatically Reduced Driver Weight
JBL's exclusive dual voice coil, dual magnetic gap Differential Drive technology is at the core of all VTX models, dramatically reducing driver weight while greatly enhancing all critical performance parameters: frequency response, power output and distortion.

VTX LZ | Laser

The VTX-LZ laser unit has been designed to securely attach to VTX or VERTEC line array systems using cabinet specific Mount Bracket (MB) accessories (supplied separately). When energized using the VTX-LZ-PS power supply unit, VTX-LZ generates a flashing bright green ray of light on-axis with the center of the loudspeaker enclosure that it is attached. This provides an accurate site angle reference for system installation or measurement microphone placement for system tuning. Green lasers are significantly brighter than red lasers, allowing the VTX-LZ laser to be used over long distances indoors or outdoors. The VTX-LZ includes IN and OUT (Female / Male) 3-Pin XLR connector for easy connectivity with multiple VTX-LZ laser units using standard microphone cables. Up to 10x VTX-LZ lasers can be used with 1x VTX-LZ-PS by using the IN/OUT XLR connectors.
Features:
  • Class 3R green laser for use with VTX or VERTEC Systems
  • 3-Pin XLR IN and OUT connectors for power supply connectivity and for powering multiple VTX-LZ units
  • Up to 10x VTX-LZ can be powered by 1 x VTX-PS
  • Mount brackets available for VTX and VERTEC systems (sold separately)
  • Fan-cooled for extended laser lifetime
Included:
  • Class 3R green laser for use with VTX or VERTEC Systems

VTX LZ V20 MB | Mount Bracket

The VTX-LZ-V20-MB mount bracket has been designed to securely attach VTX-LZ units to VTX V20 line array systems. When properly mounted on a VTX line array system, the VTX-LZ laser provides a visual reference to confirm on-axis vertical site angle aiming (focus) of the array. Coverage simulations based on JBL Line Array Calculator II software (LAC-II) indicate the desired location where the laser should aim and the VTX-LZ laser provides visual confirmation to assist with actual installation in the field. The VTX-LZ-V20-MB can be attached to either the left or right side of a V20 enclosure.
Features:
  • Mount Bracket to attach VTX-LZ to VTX V20
  • Spring-loaded, self-leveling attachment feature for accurate aiming
  • All captive part design
  • VTX-LZ and VTX-LZ-PS sold separately
Included:
  • 1 x VTX-LZ-V20-MB
