GENERAL AMPLIFICATION NOTES & REQUIREMENTS
o For the purpose of this discussion: Crown MA series amplifiers are used below. HF
indicates High Frequency drivers, MF indicates Mid Frequency drivers, LF indicates
Low Frequency drivers and VLF stands for Very Low Frequency drivers (subwoofers).
o Equivalent amplifiers can be used as substitutions.
o Users should observe differences in input sensitivity and maximum available power at a
given impedance load.
o Users may choose to use the same size amplifier to power all components / passbands.
o DSP crossover presets provided by JBL assume that the same amplifier models with
equal voltage gain, are used for each bandpass.
o If different gain settings or amplifiers models are used, users may need to adjust the
output gains of the digital controller(s).
VT4889
o 4 VT4889 can be powered with (4) MA-3600, although the MA-5002 is recommended.
ƒ Two boxes are wired in parallel per NL8 circuit.
ƒ (HF: CH1 & CH2, MF: CH1 & CH2, LO1: CH1 & CH2, LO2: CH1 & CH2)
o Using MA-5002’s would provide enough power to drive up to 6 VT4889.
ƒ Three boxes are wired in parallel per NL8 circuit.
o MA-2402 or MA-3600 can be used for the HF section to power 2 or 3 boxes.
VT4888
o 4 VT4888 can be powered with (4) MA-3600, although the MA-5002 is recommended.
ƒ Two boxes are wired in parallel per NL8 circuit.
ƒ (HF: CH1 & CH2, MF: CH1 & CH2, LO1: CH1 & CH2, LO2: CH1 & CH2)
o Using MA-5002’s would provide enough power to drive up to 6 VT4888.
ƒ Three boxes are wired in parallel.
o MA-2402 or MA-3600 can be used for the HF section to power 2 or 3 boxes.
VT 4887
o 4 VT4887 can be powered with one (1) MA-5002.
ƒ If four boxes are wired in parallel per NL8 circuit then
CH1: LF @ 2 ohms & CH2: MH/HF @ 2 ohms.
o MA-2402 or MA-3600 or MA-36x12 can be used if 2 boxes are wired in parallel instead.
VT4880
o 2 VT4880 are usually wired to (1) MA-3600 or (1) MA-5002.
ƒ If two boxes are wired in parallel using NL4 cables then
CH1: 2258 left, pin 1+ @ 4 ohms & CH2: 2258 right, pin 2+ @ 4 ohms.
o Up to 3 boxes could be wired in parallel with loads of 2.7 ohms per amp channel.
VT4881
o 2 VT4881 are usually wired to (1) MA-3600 or (1) MA-5002.
ƒ If two boxes are wired in parallel using NL8 cables then
CH1: 2256G coil 1, pin 1+ @ 4 ohms & CH2: 2256G coil 2, pin 2+ @ 4 ohms.
o Up to 3 boxes could be wired in parallel with loads of 2.7 ohms per amp channel.
o Make parallel connections at amplifier rack to minimize cable losses.
Page 3
NOTES ON SUBWOOFER WIRING
o VT4880: Users may choose to wire both 2258 (18”) components in parallel to one (1)
channel of a MA-3600 or MA-5002 for (4) ohms load. In this case each amplifier
channel drives one VT4880. If two VT4880 are wired in parallel, the load is two ohms
and there will be no amplifier power headroom.
o VT4881: Users may choose to wire both coils in a single 2256G component in parallel to
one (1) channel of a MA-3600 or MA-5002 for (4) ohms load. In this case each amplifier
channel drives one VT4881. If two VT4881 are wired in parallel, the load is two ohms.
USERS MUST NOT WIRE THE VOICE COILS ON A 2256G (VT4881) OUT OF
POLARITY TO EACH OTHER.
NL8: PIN 1 + = RED CONNECTOR A & BLACK CONNECTOR A
NL8: PIN 2 + = RED CONNECTOR B & BLACK CONNECTOR B
STANDARD AMPLIFICATION RACK
For those users looking to minimize amplifier rack configurations, one rack with 4 MA-5002
and 2 NL8 output circuits can power up to:
o 4 to 6 VT4889 (2 or 3 boxes per circuits AMPS: HF, MF, LF1, LF2)
ƒ OR
o 4 to 6 VT4888 (2 or 3 boxes per circuits AMPS: HF, MF, LF1, LF2)
ƒ OR
o 8 VT4887 & 4 VT4881
ƒ (4 VT4887 & 2 VT4881 per circuit AMPS: MF/HF, LF, VLF1, VLF2)
This rack would use the same input signal path from the digital controller of choice. Users
would only need to recall the appropriate DSP file on the unit.
o VT4889 or VT4888
ƒ DSP outputs: LO, MID, HIGH (stereo)
o VT4887 & VT4881
ƒ DSP outputs: SUB, LO, MID/HIGH (stereo)

NOTES REGARDING LIMITER SETTINGS
• The recommended limiter threshold settings provide 3 dB of headroom before the
component or bandpass peak voltage is reached.
• The component or bandpass peak voltage is 6 dB above the voltage used at
continuous maximum power.
• These settings assume the use of a Crown MA-5002 in stereo mode with input
sensitivity of 1.4V for a voltage gain of 37 dB. Amplifier limiter and Offset
Integration switches are set to the off position.
• If a different amplifier is used or if the input sensitivity is changed, the limiter
threshold must be re-calculated.
• Not all DSP controllers behave the same way. Please study your unit accordingly.
• Users must take into consideration that the digital controller gain outputs are not
all “0” dB, i.e. for VT4889/4880, the VLF is at +6 dB, the LF is at 0 dB, the MF is
at -2.5 dB and the HF is at - 4 dB. Hence, the actual headroom before limiter
threshold is effectively greater than it may seem from the above charts.
• Users should carefully test these settings, and lower or raise the thresholds for a
given type of program material as required.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
All wiring configurations shown above use 8-conductor speaker cables terminated with Neutrik NL8 "Speakons".
Ensure that each conductor in the cable is a minimum of #13 AWGuage (3-4 mm).
JBL VT4889:
The HF section of a VT4889 has three 2435H drivers (5.3Ω) wired in Series.
The MF section of a VT4889 has four 2250H drivers (8Ω) wired in Series / Parallel.
The LF section of a VT4889 has two 2255H drivers (8Ω) wired Independently.

VERTEC SYSTEMS
SUSPENSION HARDWARE & ASSEMBLY NOTES
Arrays of similar VERTEC Model
ƒ Each VERTEC model uses the matching model of Array Frame (VT488X-AF) or
Short Frame (VT488X-SF) to create clusters of the same model.
ƒ These same frames can also be used to ground stack the various systems.
Arrays of Combined VERTEC Models
ƒ Clusters of combined models (i.e. VT4887s attached under a VT4889) use
ADAPTER FRAMES to interconnect the various models.
ƒ These frames are the:
o VT4800-DA to adapt VT4887 under VT4889 or VT4880.
o VT4800-CA to adapt VT4887 under VT4888.
o VT4800-UA to adapt any model to any model.
Ground stacking capabilities
ƒ All VERTEC models can be ground stacked using the matching model of AF or SF
frames.
ƒ Up to 6 VERTEC cabinets can be safely stacked using the appropriate VERTEC AF
frame and up to 4 cabinets when using the SF Frame.
General rigging recommendations
ƒ Only qualified personnel should perform suspension of audio systems!
ƒ Users should inspect every component to be rigged every time the system is used.
ƒ Users should verify that all Quick Release Pins in the VERTEC cabinets and in the
suspension frames are properly locked when rigging the system.

\
High-grade steel alloy hinge bars are used to couple adjacent boxes together. There are
several different types. To ensure ease and proper inter-connection, make certain that the
correct hinge bar model is matched to the appropriate Array Frame or Short Frame as
well as the correct VERTEC model.

The VT4889 full size, the VT4888 mid size, and VT4887 compact line array elements
can be suspended from either the “AF” (long) or “SF” (short) array frame. Shown here,
eight VT4887 suspended from a VT4887-AF array frame.
