12" Bi-Amplified 2-Way System

The VTX F series is a line of multi-purpose loudspeakers designed to give sound production companies a variety of flexible options for deploying high-quality audio, either as a stand-alone FOH system, a satellite and subwoofer system (with companion VTX F18S), or on-stage floor monitor and fill speaker.



  • D2430K D2 Dual Diaphragm Dual Driver
  • Progressive Transition Waveguide (90° x 50°)
  • Bi-Amplified 2-Way System
  • BSS Audio OmniDriveHD V5 Processing
  • For use with Crown ITechHD and Crown VRack
  • JBL HiQnet Performance Manager Control™



The revolutionary D2 Dual Driver dramatically improves the sound and performance of high frequencies, providing an extreme output advantage over conventional systems with significantly higher array power, reduced distortion, double the number of voice coils and more than double the power handling. This results in a dramatic increase in pure high frequency sound pressure levels in the same physical footprint with a 30% reduction in weight.


Enhanced Performance and Dramatically Reduced Driver Weight

JBL's exclusive dual voice coil, dual magnetic gap Differential Drive technology is at the core of all VTX models, dramatically reducing driver weight while greatly enhancing all critical performance parameters: frequency response, power output and distortion.



System Integration and Management

With the VTX Series you are not just using a product, you are gaining access to an expert system. Tools for system design and all the components to analyze, configure, set up and control a VTX system are all part of the JBL commitment to total system integration and support. The goal is maximum efficiency and the highest possible level of performance in any venue, anywhere in the world.
