“Both the VTX A8 and the B18 were engineered from the ground up to provide big-system JBL sound in flexible, compact systems.”
The VTX A8 employs JBL transducers, along with the company’s latest high-frequency waveguide to enable the speaker to produce 110-degrees of horizontal coverage.
JBL says the companion B18 subwoofer utilizes a single 18-inch woofer augment JBL Pro speaker systems to deliver extension below 30Hz.
