FBT Vertus CLA 406.2A 2-way Active Line Array Column, the increased demand for an easy to set-up, sonically superior portable sound reinforcement system has prompted FBT to introduce a new version of the renowned VERTUS CLA460A active column array. Boasting the same impeccable audio performance as the original but with new features designed to aid mobile users, the new VERTUS CLA 406.2A and VERTUS CLA 206A active columns are receiving their official launch at Frankfurt Pro Light + Sound 2018.
The launch of the new VERTUS columns follows a steep rise in the use of the VERTUS CLA406A for mobile sound reinforcement applications and installation ? a trend spurred on by the column?s depth of versatility and audio performance. Now making life easier for those on the road, both the CLA406.2A and more compact CLA206A have been designed with portability in mind, from the rugged hardware to new accessories which make set-up both extremely quick and highly intuitive.
This product also excels with fixed installation where the dispersion characteristics and sonic performance of the column array are essential.
Included within the extended accessories range is a flybar for easy system suspension (users simply add a clamp for tubular coupling), plus a foldable floor stand offering a choice of angles from 0-10 degree, and a bracket for coupling two enclosures at angles of 0- 20 degree (in steps of 5 degree). The accessories connect to the cabinets using supplied M10 screws for fixed installation, or via quick release pins (optional) for mobile use.
In terms of hardware, the enclosures now offer four lateral inserts which can accept both the quick release pins and M10 screws, while M6 rear suspension points have been added for additional installation flexibility.
The active CLA406.2A is a Class-D 600W + 300W system delivering a maximum SPL of 133 dB courtesy of four 6.5 inch customer woofers and a 1.4 inch B&C HF compression driver with a 2.5 inch voice-coil. On-board DSP offers a choice of eight presets while the enclosure?s large-format waveguide delivers 100 degree (H) x 25 degree (V) dispersion. The CLA206A, meanwhile, incorporates the same waveguide but with only two 6.5 inch woofers. The compact column can be used stand-alone or in clusters, or as an ideal complement for the CLA406.2A, forming an overall system with increased mid-high dispersion and consistent sound pressure uniformity in the listening area.
