JBL CBT 100LA-1 1300W 16 x 2" Column Installation Speaker - White
Special Order

Amazingly Balanced Sound for Any Room or Theater

The JBL CBT 100LA-1 passive speaker uses JBL's breakthrough Constant Beamwidth Technology to produce a column speaker with incredibly balanced projection across a large area. Passive column speakers normally create inconsistencies in sound when you move about the room, but not the CBT 100LA-1! JBL's patent-pending design uses an array of 16 full-range 2" drivers with 325 watts of power capacity, and the result is consistent, natural sound coverage - both horizontally and vertically. You can even tailor the vertical dispersion to optimize the sound to any room! Perfect for large rooms like churches, school auditoriums, and theaters, the CBT 100LA-1 is easy to install as well as easy to optimize for your room. Call Sweetwater today to find out how you can integrate the JBL CBT 100LA-1 passive speakers into your live sound system!

Innovative design for superior sound coverage

The JBL CBT 100LA-1 handles up to 325 watts of power to drive an array of 16 full-range 2" speakers. That may not seem like much, but 10 years of research have created a column speaker that uses analog delay beam-forming and amplitude tapering to make sure directivity is even across the CBT 100LA-1's extended 80Hz-20kHz frequency range. The result is even, balanced sound without frequency lobing inconsistencies as you move around the coverage area. Best of all, you can switch between 40-degree vertical dispersion (for medium-throw coverage in smaller rooms) and 15-degree vertical dispersion (for long-throw coverage in larger rooms).

Perfect for performance and speech

Any place you need clear, balanced sound that covers a large area well, the JBL CBT 100LA-1 will deliver. Switchable voicings let the CBT 100LA-1 use a flat frequency response for music playback, as well as a speech mode with a midrange presence boost. It's ideal for school auditoriums and churches, allowing your message to be heard clearly throughout the room. Anywhere you have a large room that requires lots of coverage without the compromise of dead spots or frequency lobing, the CBT 100LA-1 is ready to perform.

Easy to install

JBL's CBT 100LA-1 column speakers come with a swiveling wall bracket, and also have 10 threaded insert points on the rear of the fiberglass reinforced ABS cabinet. Contractors love how easy it is to install the CBT series, and it's easy to position them for the maximum coverage in your room. Call Sweetwater to find out more about how to integrate the CBT 100LA-1 into your sound system!
