JBL Performance Audio Line Array

As announced by HARMAN Professional Solutions at Integrate Expo in August 2022, MadisonAV now distributes the JBL VRX900 Series of Constant Curvature line array loudspeakers and the VTX family of products. This includes the newest members of JBL’s VTX line array series, the VTX A6 subcompact dual 6.5-inch passive line array element and the B15 compact, arrayable 15-inch subwoofer.

Introducing the newest members of JBL’s flagship VTX line array series, the VTX A6 subcompact dual 6.5-inch passive line array element and the B15 compact, arrayable 15-inch subwoofer.

The A6 and B15 bring JBL’s top acoustic technologies to compact form factors for small- to medium-size touring and fixed installations, providing versatile solutions for production companies, touring acts, rental houses, theatres, houses of worship and anyone who requires superior sonic performance in space-critical applications.

“When you choose the JBL VTX A Series, you’re building a complete ecosystem, with common acoustic profiles and rigging systems, consistent voicing and standardized system design and operational tools,” says George Georgallis, Director, Product Management–Performance Audio at HARMAN Professional Solutions.

“And, by accessing VTX technologies in a new ultra-compact package, you’re able to maximize your system investment and deliver VTX quality and performance in any scale application.”

The A6 6.5-inch passive two-way line array element is engineered from the ground up for stunning sonic performance and ease of integration and deployment, as a standalone system or as a supplement to larger VTX systems.

It houses two custom 6.5-inch woofers and a 3-inch annular-diaphragm compression driver and features acoustic innovations pioneered in JBL’s VTX line, including JBL’s patented Radiation Boundary Integrator™ (RBI) and Differential Drive® dual-voicecoil, dual-magnet woofer. It all adds up to big-system performance in a low-profile loudspeaker, with low-frequency extension to 67 Hz and 134 dB max SPL.

Extend the low-end range of VTX full-range systems with the VTX B15 15-inch subwoofer.

The B15 features acoustic advancements such as SlipStream™ double-flared exponential ports and Differential Drive dual-voicecoil design and is based on JBL’s new 2285H 15-inch woofer, which is engineered for linearity, efficiency and excursion that rival 18-inch models.

Two B15 versions are available: the arrayable B15 and the B15G, which is designed without rigging hardware for ground-stacked applications.

The Complete Tour Sound Solution


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 optimized 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. 


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.


  • High Frequency - Combines the HF phasing plug and waveguide in a single part
  • Radiation Boundary Integrator - Integrates mid-frequency woofers with the high-frequency horn
  • Low Frequency - A lightweight neodymium low-frequency woofer
  • Suspension System - Patented auto-locking mechanism
  • Grill Design - Minimizes exposed components


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.
