JBL NEW VTX WAVEGUIDE
JBL Professional is announcing VTX V25-II: the successor to the V25 line array loudspeaker that features a brand-new waveguide for improved long-throw performance, improved wavefront control and improved power matching with the companion Crown I-Tech 4x3500HD four-channel amplifier. VTX V25-II maintains the same horizontal coverage performance of the original V25 and current V25 owners can upgrade their cabinets to the new V25-II performance standard in a matter of 10 minutes with the VTX-V25-WG-UK Waveguide Upgrade Kit. The new V25-II waveguide features design improvements that were motivated by the VTX V20 waveguide and differs from its predecessor with revised internal acoustical path geometry and double the number of acoustic transmission paths. The V25‐II waveguide provides better acoustic loading conditions for JBL’s D2 dual diaphragm, dual voice coil compression drivers, resulting in over 10dB higher sensitivity above 10kHz. This sensitivity increase means that less high frequency shelving EQ is required in order to achieve the same acoustic output response and, as a result, there is a significant increase in amplifier headroom. Limiter thresholds can also be adjusted so there is less peak limiting activity and reduced distortion. All of this combines to provide higher maximum SPL and improved system packaging density since there is a better power match when V25‐II is used with Crown Audio I-Tech 4x3500HD four channel amplifiers. All this from a new waveguide!
