This VerTec three-way high-directivity line array speaker is a rugged, lightweight enclosure housing two 15” woofers, four 8” midrange radiators, and three high-frequency compression drivers. It provides the highest power-to-weight ratio of any speaker system in its class.
Its enclosure features foam-backed low-frequency grilles, dense protective foam inserts for midrange apertures, and a fine steel mesh grille to protect high-frequency apertures. All speaker cones are treated with weather-resistant compounds.
Rigging frames and hinge bars are made from premium-grade chromemoly alloy steel, with epoxy power coating over zinc-plated surfaces; hinge pins are cadmium-plated and quick-release pin restraining lanyards are stainless steel to resist corrosion and weather damage.
VerTec arrays are rigid for maximum support strength, yet flexible in design and application. The VT4889’s suspension hardware relies on quick-release pins and end-mounted metal frames to couple adjacent speakers together.
