JBL Professional Unveils White Versions of VRX928LA Portable Line Array Loudspeaker and VRX915S Compact Subwoofer

The new white VRX928LA-WH and VRX915S-WH loudspeakers offer system integrators even more design options for environments where aesthetics are a priority.

Bringing more options to installers wishing to visually integrate their audio systems into a variety of environments, JBL Professional is now offering its VRX928LA-WH compact, portable line array loudspeaker and VRX915S-WH subwoofer in a white installation version.

The development of the popular VRX928LA and VRX915S systems in a white version is the result of feedback from systems designers and integrators, who must consider the visual element of a sound system for environments ranging from houses of worship to civic facilities. The VRX928LA-WH and VRX915S-WH models were designed specifically for permanent installations and build on the success of the VRX series, which brings the proven versatility of the JBL VERTEC® series line array to mid-sized venues and portable applications.

“High-quality audio will always stand as the number one priority for JBL, however we recognize the need for our equipment to fit into various environments in a discreet manner,” said Simon Jones, Director of Portable PA Marketing, JBL Professional. “The introduction of this line is a testament to JBL’s commitment to offering a variety of options [including aesthetics] for different product applications.”

The VRX928LA-WH is a lightweight, compact, 8-inch, 2-way, 400-watt line array loudspeaker system that provides line array performance in smaller applications that do not require the long-throw characteristics of its larger, hugely successful sibling, the VRX932LA. The VRX928LA-WH may be flown in arrays of up to six and integral rigging hardware is used to securely lock the array together.

The companion subwoofer VRX915S-WH features a 15-inch, 800-watt direct radiating woofer. It has been designed to seamlessly integrate with the VRX928LA-WH and as such supports the same built-in rigging for efficient, simple and secure installation.
