JBL Performance Audio

The VTX A-Series is JBL’s next-generation tour sound solution for mid- to large-size touring applications and high-end fixed installations. The series was designed from scratch to address not only audio performance, but the full scope of challenges faced by tour sound professionals, rental companies, FOH engineers and live production crews.

  • Want unparalleled performance, sensitivity and coverage? JBL’s proprietary transducer technology and high-frequency waveguides deliver.
  • Want streamlined deployment and setup? A patented JBL rigging mechanism and redesigned suspension system make it happen.
  • Want reduced weight and optimised transportability? Refinements to the physical design ensure just that. A full range of rigging and transportation accessories round out system offerings.

The VTX A-Series: With advanced acoustics, common rigging systems and full software integration, it’s never been easier to deliver extraordinary sound at any scale.


With VTX A-Series systems, every seat in the house is a sweet spot: The A12 and A12W exhibit 90-degree and 120-degree dispersion patterns respectively down to 250 Hz, while the A8 exhibits a 110-degree dispersion pattern down to 300 Hz, and the A6 offers 110-degree dispersion down to 500 Hz.

VTX A-Series speakers adhere tightly to their dispersion patterns, which keeps the sound where you want it: off the stage and in the audience.

All four models feature the same HF compression driver, waveguide technology and other components, ensuring uniform, consistent voicing and coverage and providing the flexibility to design systems that match the needs of any listening environment.

VTX A-Series Products

For VTX A-Series, next-generation transducers were engineered from the ground up by JBL for linear performance, high output and consistent coverage.

Together, their custom-designed low-, mid-, and high-frequency sections deliver the highest output per weight in their class, with improved low-frequency extension and controlled directivity that ranges from 90–120 degrees to match the application of each loudspeaker.

Physical design refinements integrate more drivers into smaller, lighter cabinets for reduced overall system weight and truck-friendly dimensions.

A revolutionary auto-locking rigging and suspension system speeds deployment time. It all adds up to big-system-JBL sound in our most convenient and comprehensive offering to date.

JBL VTX Series Tour Audio 2024


JBL VTX A-Series in Australia

MadisonAV has been taking the JBL VTX A-Series out across Australia, with recent deployments at a number of major festivals and events. These events delivered unforgettable performances from a huge lineup of artists – matched with a fantastic sonic experience thanks to the VTX A-Series.

Hoodoo Gurus and the Canberra Symphony Orchestra at Enlighten Canberra

The Hoodoo Gurus, renowned for their groundbreaking Aussie rock, took the stage alongside the 40-piece Canberra Symphony Orchestra. The crystal-clear sound of the JBL VTX A12 PA system enveloped the crowd across every corner of the park.

Chris Neal from Eclipse Lighting and Audio says “I had lots of gain before feedback with the orchestra. The rear rejection was really good. It sounded nice as soon as we turned it on, and we didn’t have to do a whole lot to it to get it sitting nicely.”

Rolling Sets Festival and Let the Good Times Roll Festival

Two of the most anticipated Central Coast festivals of the year were held back-to-back over the two days, with a JBL VTX A8 system being featured on the Jim Beam Stage and Ocean Stage with A6 fills and G28 sub-woofers.

Ryan Hazell from Roll In Production Services said “The VTX system surpassed all my expectations, I was expecting it to be good but not “that” good. We were able to compare it pretty much side by side next to the big German manufacturer’s latest system on the main Rolling Sets stage. The VTX A Series more than held its own and covered the space beautifully with a perfect deployment."

St Kilda Festival

With over 300,000 people gathering each year, St Kilda Festival is Australia’s largest free and all ages music festival. Australia’s hottest new talents were heard through the JBL VTX A Series as part of the New Music Competition, thanks to the team at Light and Sound Solutions.

Andrew Stanley, Managing Director of Light & Sound Solutions commented “The PA did a great job of creating a nice rich sound across the listening area. The size and weight are good, and I think A Series will fit into the market nicely. The rigging capability is great. It’s all integrated, which makes it so much easier. We were ground stacked at the New Music stage, but whether it’s hanging or ground stacked, you’re using the same pins.”

BIGSOUND is the southern hemisphere’s biggest music industry gathering, and Australia’s longest-running and most influential music market, featuring a trove of heavy hitting speakers and industry leaders, cutting edge workshops, talent showcases, networking opportunities and a music festival. Three venues utilised the JBL VTX A-Series at this event, with the smallest venue Blute’s featuring the sub-compact A6 system, The Soundgarden featuring the compact A8 system, and large brewery venue, Soapbox Beer, featuring the A12 system.

Eddie Gresack, BIGSOUND Production Manager said “The JBL A Series rolled out very well. I was really happy with the way the system sounded in Soapbox Brewery, and both Blute’s and The Sound Garden were both huge improvements over their house systems."
