JBL Professional Adds Two New Models to VP Series Powered Loudspeaker Systems
May 17, 2007 8:00 AM
Expanding on the overwhelming success of its Venue Performance (VP) series powered loudspeakers, JBL Professional is introducing two new models to the lineup, effectively raising the standard for versatility and power in portable or fixed sound reinforcement applications. The introductions bring the number of total models in the VP Series to eight.
The VP7210/95DP is a powered, 10in., two-way integrated loudspeaker system, perfect for spot-fill applications, featuring 1750W of peak output power and onboard digital signal processing. The VP7210/95DP transducers are JBL’s 2260FF 10in.-diameter Differential Drive Woofer and the JBL 2452H-SL compression driver. The high-frequency driver is coupled to a JBL PT-D95HF Progressive Transition waveguide for excellent 90x50-degree pattern control, smooth frequency response, and low distortion. The VP7210/95DP is also easily rotated for horizontal or vertical system orientation.
Designed specifically as a high-impact stage monitor, the VP7212MDP is a powered, 12in., two-way integrated loudspeaker system. It features 1750W of peak output power and onboard digital signal processing. The VP7212MDP transducers are the JBL 2262FF 12in. diameter Differential Driver woofer and the JBL 2452H-SL compression driver. Like the VP7210/95DP, the high-frequency driver is coupled to a JBL PT-D95HF Progressive Transition waveguide. The VP7212MDP features a baffle that can be reversed in the field and can be configured for left or right applications.
As with all VP series models, the VP7210/95DP and VP7212MDP were designed in cooperation with Crown International. The JBL DrivePack DPC-2 amplifier module features Crown’s Class D digital power amplification circuitry. Dual-Bridged Technology (DBT) directly links discrete amplifier channel outputs to each voice-coil in the Differential Drive loudspeakers, maximizing electrical power transfer to the transducers for optimum system performance. In addition, these new VP series models feature robust powder-coated, die-cast aluminum handles, designed for strength and comfort.
“Since its introduction in early 2006, the JBL Professional VP series loudspeaker systems have been used in a wide variety of applications, including houses of worship, live performance spaces, themed entertainment venues, and corporate learning centers,” says Ted Leamy, vice president of installed sound, JBL Professional. “With the addition of the compact VP7210/95DP and VP7212MDP, rental companies and systems integrators can provide even more flexibility, power, and performance.”
