VTX B15

Compact Arrayable 15-inch Subwoofer
The VTX B15 Compact Arrayable 15-inch Subwoofer extends the low-end performance of VTX full-range sound-reinforcement systems, including the VTX A6 Subcompact Dual 6.5-inch Line Array Element. The B15 is a versatile solution for production companies, touring acts, rental houses, theaters, houses of worship or anyone who demands superior sound reinforcement when space is at a premium.

The B15 joins the VTX B Series subwoofer family in harnessing VTX acoustic innovations such as SlipStream™ double-flared expo¬nential ports and Differential Drive® dual-voice coil woofer design. The B15 has the same width and suspension hardware as the A6, allowing the two products to be combined in a range of flown and ground-stacked configurations.

Together with the A6, the B15 brings flagship VTX sound quality and performance to a compact footprint, whether supporting small and midsize applications or supplement¬ing large VTX systems. It’s never been easier to deliver impactful, VTX-quality sound at any scale.
