The quality of speaker systems at a concert can make all the difference between a good gig and a bad one. Whether it is a sports arena, an open field or an intimate music club, having good quality speakers is essential. Top quality concert speakers not only need to deliver excellent standards of audio, they also need to be robust, hard wearing and above all, reliable.
JBL's professional audio division has a wide range of concert speaker systems. Listed under its tour sound products, the JBL VERTEC systems are amongst the best concert speaker systems available. Used in large venues such as arenas and stadiums, VERTEC systems are known as line array systems due to their stacked design. With an impressive roster of clients that includes Bruce Springsteen and Radio City Music Hall in New York, the quality of VERTEC is undeniable. At the core of the VERTEC sound is the exclusive differential drive, a dual voiced coil that increases the frequency response and power output of the speakers to produce loud volumes without distortion. Groundbreaking technology in the form of the JBL Drivepack external power supply, and sound quality of the dual differential speakers make the JBL VERTEC system one of the best in the world.
