JBL VTX A12 is a complete tour sound solution for mid- to large-size touring applications and high-end fixed installations. VTX A12 was designed from scratch to address the unique challenges of rental companies, FOH engineers and tour sound production crews. Next-generation JBL transducer technology and a high-frequency waveguide design deliver unmatched performance, sensitivity and coverage. A patented JBL rigging mechanism and redesigned suspension system streamline deployment and setup. And refinements to the physical design maximize reliability and versatility, while minimizing size and dramatically reducing weight. VTX A12 isn’t just a superior line array—it’s a completely new way to approach tour sound.

The VTX A12’s high frequency (HF) section features three uniquely designed drivers that combine the HF phasing plug and waveguide into one part providing better tolerances and increased sensitivity above 10 kHz, while reducing distortion and overall weight. The patented Radiation Boundary Integrator incorporates four 5.5" mid frequency drivers into the high frequency waveguide while providing a smooth surface for the high frequency horn. A lightweight 12" low frequency woofer (LF) features a fourth-generation Differential Drive design that adds dual magnets to its dual voice coil/dual gap construction, and a host of proprietary JBL technologies for increased excursion, power handling, and sensitivity.

VTX A12 marks a giant leap forward in how loudspeakers are rigged and transported. Four array elements are stacked on the vertical transporter cart for fast deployment. The rigging features an auto-locking mechanism, which allows the selection of angles while components are on the ground; once the system is suspended, the mechanism automatically locks cabinet angles in the designated positions. Set angles simply by pulling and placing a pin—it’s that easy.
