VTX A6

Sub-compact Dual 6.5-Inch Line Array Element

VTX A6

Sub-compact Dual 6.5-Inch Line Array Element
The A6, JBL’s smallest VTX line array product to date, brings flagship VTX A Series performance to a subcompact form factor. The fully passive, two-way line array element is a versatile solution for small to mid-size rental houses, corporate events, theaters, clubs, houses of worship or anyone who demands superior sound reinforcement.

Like every VTX A Series speaker, the A6 is engineered for outstanding sonic performance and ease of integration and deployment. Custom-engineered dual 6.5” Differential Drive® woofers and a new 3-inch compression driver join the acoustic innovations that are hallmarks of the VTX Series. Coupled with a clean and modern industrial design and a robust IP55 rating, the A6 is a significant advancement to its predecessor, the VT4886.

The A6 also shares the A12 and A8 auto-locking rigging mechanism and suspension system. The simple to use suite of accessories and best-in-class software suite (Performance Manager, LAC3, and Array Link) expand the flown, ground-stacked, and installation capabilities of the series when paired with the new VTX B15G or VTX B15 subwoofer.

With the addition of the A6, the JBL VTX A Series provides a complete ecosystem for delivering unrivaled sound reinforcement at any scale, in any venue, anywhere in the world.
