Introduction
This edition in the Array Application Guide series focuses on how Precision Directivity TM
PD6000 Series loudspeakers offer solutions in constructing arrays that offer exceptional
coverage and performance for a wide range of venue sizes and applications.
The arrays in this guide, as in earlier editions, are organized by configuration and orientation.
These configurations help emphasize the versatility of the PD Series loudspeakers as the arrays
are upgraded in terms of coverage and output. General performance information including
frequency range, nominal coverage, SPL capability, size, and weight are provided for each
array.
The versatility of the PD6000 Series allows it to easily integrate into designs that are primarily
focused on speech intelligibility and music reproduction such as house of worship systems and
theatrical venues, high level voice announce systems for indoor and outdoor sporting facilities,
and even high level/high impact dance club environments.
Currently, the PD6322/xx 3-way enclosure can be found in a variety of mid to larger size
houses of worship and performing arts centers, often in a rotated enclosure orientation, to offer
vertical directivity performance and control well into the critical lower mid-range frequency band
to assist in speech intelligibility in problem acoustic spaces. These same advantages can also
be used in large sporting event facilities to control energy onto court surfaces and ceiling areas.
The PD6212/xx 2-way enclosures can be used in both individual hang points and multiple
enclosure configurations to effectively address mid-size sporting facilities; the multiple horn
patterns allow consistent horizontal coverage to conform to audience seating geometries with
excellent results.
When used with the PD5125 low frequency enclosure, the PD6200/xx mid-high frequency
loudspeakers make up an effective single point cluster for very high speech intelligibility in
theaters and worship spaces.
Augmenting the PD6000 series with our Application Engineered Series is a natural when you
need a smaller enclosure for downfill purposes to complete the system design. Many of the AE
Series enclosures use the same rotatable high frequency horn types with the same highly
predictable coverage patterns – up to 120o horizontal – to ensure the success of the system.
New to the JBL Installations Series family are five additional AE Series subwoofer enclosures.
These models include ultra compact 12” and 15” models, a dual 15” model, and two high-output
18” models in both single and dual component models. These new enclosures feature side
rigging points at both the front and rear of the enclosure to facilitate easy enclosure suspension
when configuring vertical arrays or rear firing elements in a flown cardioid subwoofer
arrangement. Additional notes on cardioid subwoofer set-up can be found in the ‘Array Tips’
section. This easy and proven method of arranging subwoofer enclosures will assist the
designer in minimizing rear projected energy to control low frequencies throughout the room.
Although each room and project has its own demanding set of circumstances, we hope this
Array Guide provides an outline for understanding the wide variety of effective solutions that are
possible with the PD6000 Series of JBL Professional loudspeakers.

authorities for specific guidelines.
Correct use of all rigging hardware is required for secure system suspension. Careful calculations should
always be performed to ensure that all components are used within their working load limits before the
array is suspended. Never exceed the maximum recommended load ratings.
Before suspending any speaker system always inspect all components (enclosure, rigging frames, pins,
eyebolts, track fittings, etc.) for cracks, deformations, corrosion, missing, loose or damaged parts that
could reduce strength and safety of the array. Do not suspend the speaker until the proper corrective
action has been taken. Use only load-rated hardware when suspending Application Engineered™ Series
and Precision Directivity® Series loudspeakers.

Read and study JBL Technical Note Volume 1, Number 14: Basic Principles for Suspending
Loudspeaker Systems (available at http://www.jblpro.com/pub/technote/tn_v1n14.pdf).
Know the rules for the safe overhead suspension of loudspeakers.
Attend a seminar, such as those recognized and recommended by the Entertainment
Technician Certification Program http://etcp.esta.org/cert_recognized/training_programs/rigging_list.htm
Meet and establish a relationship with a licensed mechanical or structural engineer. Get in the
habit of asking them questions instead of guessing about their answers. Learn from what they tell
you.
Meet and discuss this aspect of your business with your Insurance Agent.
Research and understand the codes, practices, and requirements in the venues where you intend
to install and operate sound systems.
General Hardware Information
Any hardware used in an overhead suspension application must be load rated for the intended use.
Generally, this type of hardware is available from rigging supply houses, industrial supply catalogs and
specialized rigging distributors. Local hardware stores do not usually stock these products. Hardware that
is intended for overhead suspension will comply with ASME B30.20 and will be manufactured under
product traceability controls. Compliant hardware will be referenced with a working load limit (WLL) and a
traceability code.
Attachment to Structures
A licensed Professional Engineer must approve the placement and method of attachment to the structure
prior to the installation of any overhead object. The following performance standards should be provided
to the Professional Engineer for design purposes; Uniform Building Code as applicable, Municipal Building
Code as applicable, and Seismic Code as applicable.
4
The installation of the hardware and method of attachment must be carried out in the manner specified by
the Professional Engineer. Improper installation may result in damage, injury or death.
Inspection & Maintenance
Suspension systems are comprised of mechanical devices and, as such, they require regular inspection
and routine maintenance to insure proper function ability. JBL AE Series and PD Series loudspeakers
must be inspected for fatigue at least annually. The inspection shall include a visual survey of all corners
and load bearing surfaces for signs of cracking, water damage, de-lamination, or any other condition that
may decrease the strength of the loudspeaker enclosure. Accessory rigging hardware provided with or for
the JBL AE Series loudspeakers must be inspected for fatigue at least annually. The inspection shall
include a visual survey of the material for signs of corrosion, bending or any other condition that may
decrease the strength of the fastener. Additionally, any eyebolts shall be checked for possible spin-out
from the enclosure. For all other hardware and fittings, refer to the hardware manufacturer's inspection
and maintenance guidelines for process.
JBL is not responsible for the application of its products for any purpose or the misuse of this information
for any purpose. Furthermore, JBL is not responsible for the abuse of its products caused by avoiding
compliance with inspection and maintenance procedures or any other abuse.
Prior to suspending the system, an expert, trained and experienced in suspending loudspeaker systems
should inspect all rigging parts and components.
Safe Rigging
WARNING!
Suspending any loudspeaker system should be done by qualified persons following safe rigging standards.
The JBL AE Series and PD6000 Series are supplied with built-in internal brackets. The system
is designed to facilitate the suspension of the loudspeaker by a qualified person familiar with
rigging hardware and industry practices. Threaded M10 shouldered eyebolts are available for
purchase from JBL Professional (part # 229-00009-01) for use when suspending AE and PD
Series enclosures utilizing this internal bracket system.
AE Series and PD6000 Series enclosures are capable of a maximum load of 470lbs/213kg
from 2 points equally loaded. The single point maximum load is 235lbs/106kg. Improper
installation may result in damage, injury or death. Prior to suspending the system, an expert,
trained and experienced in flying speaker systems should inspect all rigging parts and
components. A licensed Professional Engineer must approve the placement and method of
attachment to the structure prior to the installation of any overhead object.

High-Impact Music and Dance Systems
While these systems are also sometimes used for speech, their primary purpose
indicates that the arrays must produce high SPL Levels and have extended bandwidth by
integrating subwoofers – whether flown or ground supported – into the system.
Rectangular and auditorium shapes can have enhanced L/R only systems or exploded
cluster systems – the center channel sometimes being optimized for speech. Fanshaped rooms once again typically will use three- or four arrays to provide proper
coverage and localization to the stage. Using rotated and vertically oriented enclosures,
as shown with array type G on page 24, will provide high impact and excellent vertical
directivity in the low frequency bandpass.
A similar use for a single rotated PD6322/xx is for high level dance club environments.
The strong impact of the dual 12” low-frequency section is highly effective when used for
square dance floors (4 enclosures) or rectangular dance floors (6 enclosures).
In club environments where even higher levels of low frequency impact is desired the
array type B, shown on page 18, will create a truly ‘world class’ level dance system (see
Figure 6). The enclosures would be rotated 90o with the 12” devices on either side of the
mid and high-frequency horns. Where the standard array type F offers increased vertical
pattern control when oriented vertically this rotated configuration offers better low
frequency control horizontally, keeping low frequency energy onto the dance floor while
allowing less impact to adjacent seating areas outside of the dance floor.

with additional PD5122 dual 12” low frequency enclosure.

Indoor Arena Systems
Designing PD6000 Series enclosures into an indoor arena/field house facility can be
addressed in several manners depending on the size of the facility. For larger capacity
bleacher seating units that run the length of a court, using horizontally oriented
PD6212/xx or PD6322/xx enclosures distributed along the length of the bleacher seats
works well. Ideally these distributed speaker positions will orient in front of the first
seating row.
Depending on the height of the bleacher sections and associated vertical coverage
requirements the horn may be left in its standard orientation with the enclosure rotated
as mentioned above. With a 60o x 40o model this would allow the 60o pattern to cover the
bottom to uppermost row when used with a taller bleacher section.
Larger capacity arenas that utilize a suspended scoreboard and/or video display panels
may benefit from speakers positioned at the top or above the scoreboard area in a
circular configuration as shown below. This design approach works very well with full
wrap around seating areas. This tighter perimeter of speakers helps keep time arrivals
within an acceptable time window as well.
Figure 7: PD6322/xx and PD5122 enclosures
– used for better vertical pattern control shown positioned above a scoreboard with
PD6212/xx enclosures suspended for upper
perimeter seating areas as a delay ring.
10
Outdoor Stadium Systems
Using PD6000 Series enclosures as the main components for a pole mounted or press
box roof oriented system for small to mid-size stadiums is easily accomplished with the
variety of available horn patterns. For systems that are speech oriented with less
emphasis on music playback and low frequency impact the PD6212/xx enclosures are
suggested. These enclosures may be arrayed horizontally or vertically depending on
mounting location and seating geometry, but will typically be ordered with the –WRX
weather protection treatment. Remember when specifying rotated –WRC and –WRX to
add the ‘-H’ suffix to indicate rotated horn patterns if so desired.
For canopy hung systems, typically seen in European football stadiums, vertical arrays of
rotated enclosures will offer superior speech intelligibility and pattern control. Once
again, the larger mid-range horn size will greatly assist in controlling the volume of late
arriving energy.
The PD6212 enclosures can also be used as specific area fill enclosures as part of a
larger system; such as when used with the VLA Series line array enclosures or PD700
Series of Precision Directivity speakers (see figure 8).
Figure 8: PD6212/xx enclosures used as down firing area fill
enclosures augmenting a VLA and PD700 Series stadium installation.
Summary
These examples are only some of the uses of the array types that follow. They can be modified
or augmented to meet the particular needs of your project. We hope you will find them useful in
providing a starting point for your next project.

ARRAY TIPS
Modeling Arrays in Rooms
The arrays included in this array guide have been developed to provide good coverage
consistency throughout their specified range and balanced power response throughout their
bandwidth. They are arranged to produce systems that are easy to rig and meet common
coverage and performance needs.
To better understand how these arrays will work in a particular room, it is always preferred to
model the room with EASE, CATT acoustic or a similar type of predictive analysis tool.
With these tools, array orientation and angles can be adjusted to optimize their use in the
room. It is also a good way to determine how different elements of the system – multiple
arrays and fills – combine to produce the complete solution.
Optimizing Long-throw/Short-throw Loudspeaker Systems
Many sound reinforcement applications call for loudspeakers to be arranged in a “longthrow/short-throw” configuration. To set-up a system like this, we recommend the following
procedure:
1) Optimize the long-throw loudspeaker or system by itself (including separate LF).
Store your optimized trace for later reference.
2) Optimize the short-throw (downfill) speaker by itself (with long-throw off).
Note: When using a full-range downfill device, use the same high-pass as the
long-throw device. For a mid-high downfill device, use the same high-pass as
the long-throw M/H high-pass. This is important since using different
crossover points is detrimental to how the loudspeakers interact due to phase
mismatches through the crossover regions.
3) Level balance the downfill on-axis measurement to match the long-throw
loudspeaker’s on-axis measurement. This should be done above 1 kHz, where both
devices are clearly in the effective range of the waveguide. This may be done by
matching traces on an analysis system such as Smaart or TEF; or by simply
using an SPL meter.
4) With both long-throw and short-throw sections on, analyze the downfill region
again. The additional energy in this region, which resulted from the combined
contribution of the long-throw device(s) and the downfill device, may be reduced by
adding broad parametric EQ cuts to the downfill loudspeaker.
Note: The use of parametric filters introduces less phase shift between the
long-throw and downfill devices than raising the high-pass crossover point of
the downfill loudspeaker, ultimately creating a smoother transition between
the devices.
5) If both loudspeakers are full-range devices, the addition of the down-fill device will
affect the long-throw response by increasing level in the LF region. This is usually
beneficial since the overall array will provide greater LF levels, producing a more
12
balanced system and better LF polar characteristics. However, this means that the
final low-frequency EQ must be done with all devices on.
Note: Below 250 Hz, treat all components of the array as one device with the
same EQ filters.
This proven procedure provides very good, consistent results for this common
arrangement.
Signal Processing
Loudspeakers shown in this array guide are described in their most passive
configuration; the number of DSP channels required and amplifier recommendations
shown for each array type reflect this.
A separate DSP channel is required for the downfill loudspeakers. The low-frequency
section of a three-way system or separate LF enclosure will require an additional DSP
channel, as will the subwoofers.
DSP signals for each individual array may be paralleled symmetrically. For instance,
where two loudspeakers are side by side horizontally, there is no benefit to providing
independent DSP. Level differences may be done at the amplifier if required.
Loudspeaker DSP settings may be found on the JBL web site. For the crossover
between the subwoofers and the low-frequency section, a 24 dB/octave L-R crossover
slope on each side is recommended. Also, it is good practice to use as a minimum an 18
dB/octave high-pass on the system with the corner frequency somewhere between the –
10dB and –3dB down point of the loudspeaker reproducing the lowest frequency. Refer
to the loudspeaker specifications for this data.
Low Frequency Pattern Control
Most of the arrays described in this guide have integral to them low-frequency devices
that are arranged to provide improved directivity. No special DSP techniques are
required to realize these benefits.
It is generally better to arrange LF devices vertically rather than horizontally, as the
vertical arrangement tends to collapse the vertical polar pattern, which is beneficial in
keeping energy off of the stage and projecting it into the room. Where it is important to
limit the LF energy on the stage and to gain additional level and impact, look for solutions
that stack two or more LF drivers vertically.

JBL Application Support staff.
Subwoofer Cardioid Configurations
Configuring subwoofer enclosures in vertical columns or spaced vertical arrays, as with
any line source, will allow the user to achieve vertical pattern control to a lower
frequency. The AE Series subwoofers can easily be used in such configurations with
ample 10mm attachment points. A more common configuration for practical low
frequency control, however, is to use multiple subwoofer enclosures in a cardioid
configuration.
Figure 7: ASB6112 enclosures
configured in a cardioid
configuration.
Cardioid subwoofer arrays will typically exhibit 12-25dB of rear attenuation to better
control subwoofer energy onto stage areas or boundary areas. The beneficial effects are
tighter, more controlled subwoofer impact to the audience areas due to higher direct to
reverberant ratios, less energy interacting with boundary conditions (walls), and late
arriving energy from other distributed subwoofer arrays in arena situations.
These performance gains are achieved by matching the rear facing enclosures
frequency response and amplitude to the forward facing enclosures response and
amplitude at a rear test microphone position approximately 5 meters behind the array.
The rear facing cabinet is then time delayed to the arrival from the forward facing
enclosures and the rear enclosures polarity is then reversed. The rear attenuation can
then be compared to the front of the cardioid array by moving the test mic to a position in
front of the array at an identical distance as was used behind the array.

Precision Directivity 3-way loudspeaker array with
companion spaced-source low frequency enclosure
ARRAY OVERVIEW





This array is an excellent choice for larger rooms as part of Left/Right or exploded clusters
where exceptional gain before feedback is required.
Spaced-source low-frequency drivers combine with the large mid-frequency waveguide to
maintain pattern control through 125Hz.
This array may form the basis of larger arrays where polar pattern consistency is required to a
very low frequency.
This system may be augmented with ground supported ASB7128 or ASB6128V subwoofers.

Application Notes
A sometimes unanticipated problem in sound system design is excessive low frequency energy
beneath the flown array. Related to this can be poor low frequency coverage into the audience
area and a system with excessive ‘lobing’ onto the performance area. This is usually caused by
arranging low frequency devices in such a way they do not work together in an efficient
manner.
A single low-frequency device by itself has very little directivity. However, by spacing a pair of
low frequency devices the resulting ‘spaced-source’ array has a directivity defined by the
distance between the devices and the frequency. Additionally, spacing the drivers above and
below the MF waveguide has the effect of extending the effective working height of the system,
thus allowing the resulting array to work together smoothly through a lower frequency. This is
commonly known as a dipole array.
Not only will this reduce LF energy on the stage, thus increasing gain before feedback, it will
also have the effect of improving the evenness of coverage in the audience area.
The diagram below (Fig 1.) describes how the levels of the loudspeaker system must be
controlled in the vertical plane to achieve consistent direct levels in the seating area.
Fig. 1: Section Drawing
To achieve the spaced-source effect, a PD5122 is simply placed below a standard PD6322. The
low frequency device spacing creates a directivity pattern that essentially matches that of the
mid-frequency waveguide. The result is a smooth transition in directivity performance through
crossover.
Since the PD5122 is simply the LF section of a PD6322, the response of the LF sections will be
identical and they can utilize the same DSP processing settings. No additional steps are required
to realize the increased vertical directivity offered by this array configuration. Refer to JBL Tech
Note V1 #32 for additional information and polar data concerning this array.

Painting AE and PD Series Loudspeaker Enclosures
JBL AE and PD Series loudspeakers are available in black, white or unfinished. When ordering, the
default color is always black. White is signified by a –WH suffix on the model number. Unfinished models
are signified with a –UF suffix and are delivered “paint ready”. JBL recommends that for custom color
installations, the unfinished versions (-UF) should be ordered and painted as required. If however, you
wish to paint an enclosure over the JBL “Duraflex” finish, the instructions below should be used as a
general guide.
DuraFlex is a multi-layer finish. The top aliphatic layer provides a surface to which most paints bond.
Note: Some JBL portable loudspeaker models do not include a top aliphatic coating – these models are
not paintable. All standard AE and PD Series loudspeakers do include a top aliphatic coating and are
paintable.
1) SURFACE PREPARATION
Important:
Do NOT sand or scuff the surface! This could remove the top aliphatic coating
which is required for good paint adhesion.
Prepare the surface by cleaning and wiping dust with a damp cloth. It may be necessary to use a mild
household cleaner to remove grease. If so, be sure to rinse off the detergent and give plenty of time for
the surface to dry completely. Avoid using a cloth that will deteriorate over the textured surface.
2) PRIMING THE SURFACE
Some paints may adhere well directly. Starting with a primer is highly recommended for ensuring proper
long-term adhesion. Use an oil-based primer, not a water-based primer.
3) PAINT SELECTION
With Primer – If you use a primer, select a paint that works well over that primer.
Without Primer – If you are applying paint directly without using a primer, oil-based paint is
recommended. Water-based paint does not adhere as well. Avoid epoxy-based paints as they do not
stretch adequately for the expansion and contraction of a wooden loudspeaker cabinet and can crack.
4) MASKING THE BAFFLE
It is often desirable to leave the baffle (behind the grille) black.
5) PAINT APPLICATION
Apply as many coats as is required. Paint may be applied by rolling, brushing or spraying.
6) GRILLE
Care must be taken when painting the grille to avoid clogging the grille backing material (open cell foam
on some models and grille cloth on other models). Clogging the pores will degrade the performance of
the loudspeaker.
Painting Grille with Backing Attached – It can be very difficult to paint the grille with the backing
attached without clogging the grille backing material.
Removing the Grille Backing – It is a good idea to remove the grille’s backing (foam or cloth) and
reattach it after painting. Spraying is perhaps the best way to paint the grille.
It is highly recommended to leave the grille backing unpainted. If you must add some color to the backing,
give it a very quick spray dusting of the color, making sure not to clog the pores in the backing material.
28
Reattach the backing securely using 3M Super 77 or similar spray adhesive, sprayed onto the back of the
metal grille (spray only a minimal amount onto the backing because otherwise the backing could tend to
pick up dust from the air).
If the backing is damaged in the removal process it will be necessary to order a replacement – either from
JBL or from a third-party foam or grille cloth provider -- if indeed a backing is required for your application.
Painting Weather Resistant AE and PD Models
Most AE and PD models are available in two levels of weather resistant models. Weather resistant models
are signified by a –WRC or –WRX suffix to the standard product model.
Important:
Simply painting a non-weather-resistant speaker is NOT acceptable protection for
outdoor use.
Internal Protection – The WRC and WRX models are constructed with necessary additional internal
protection, including: full internal surface sealant to protect the wood from the inside, special corrosionresistant internal hardware, weather protection for the cones, protective coating for the metal parts on the
back of the drivers, protective coating on crossover network, waterproof glues and special grille backing
that breaks up driving rain. For speakers that will be used outdoors, always start with a WRC (DuraFlex
finish) or WRX (fiberglass finish) as the base model to insure proper construction for outdoor use.
Painting WRC Enclosures -- Models with the WRC-level of weather resistant are coated with an extrathick DuraFlex finish. Follow the same instructions in the sections above, which apply to all models with
DuraFlex finish.
Painting WRX Enclosures – WRX-level weather resistant models have a fiberglass finish. Follow
standard procedures for painting over fiberglass.
For further information on weather resistant JBL models and the technical definition of the
–WRC and –WRX process go to the “WEATHER RESISTANT Configurations
for AE and PD Series” section available in this guide and also online at the JBL Professional
Website: www.jblpro.com.
