The CBT 200LA-1, with Constant Beamwidth Technology™, represents a breakthrough in pattern control consistency and coverage options, utilizing complex analog delay beam-forming and amplitude tapering to accomplish superior, consistent coverage without the inconsistent vertical beaming, uneven coverage, and out-of-coverage lobing that are typical of both powered and nonpowered column speakers.

The CBT 200LA-1 assembly consists of a top and a bottom loudspeaker module that, when bolted together end-to-end during installation, form a 32-driver array that is 200 cm (6.6 feet) tall. The height provides excellent pattern control over a wide bandwidth and superb throw capability. The combination of sound quality, pattern control, and compact design makes CBT 200LA-1 ideal for a wide variety of venues, including highly reverberant facilities and those requiring especially long throw or pattern control down to very low frequencies. Venue types include transit centers, conference centers, cathedrals, multipurpose spaces, gymnasiums, and theme parks, among many others.

JBL CBT 200LA-1 Features

  • Patented Constant Beamwidth Technology™ provides true wide-band constant directivity coverage up to the highest frequencies and reduces out-ofcoverage lobing.
  • 200 cm (6.6 ft) height extends pattern control to include lower frequencies.
  • Vertical pattern coverage switchable between 30° and 15° for medium or long-throw coverage.
  • Asymmetrical Progressive-Gradient vertical coverage setting directs more sound toward the far area of the listening space, making front to back sound levels more consistent. Progressive-Gradient extent is adjustable.
  • Narrow width of 98.5 mm (3.8 in) fits visually into a wide variety of applications.
  • Dynamic Sonic-Guard™ low-audibility overload protection.
  • Swivel (pan) / tilt wall bracket included
  • Built-in 70V/100V transformers, plus direct capability.
