The VERTUS CS 1000 Compact Line Array Integrated System from FBT features a lightweight yet sturdy construction. It can be deployed on stage or discreetly integrated into the most delicate of decors to provide high-quality sound and controlled directivity. The bi-amplified design comprises of a long excursion 12″ bass reflex subwoofer and a passive mounted satellite, linked via a Neutrik SPEAKON connector and equipped with six full-range neodymium 3″ drivers. There is a Class D, 2-channel amplifier on-board the subwoofer, complete with switch-mode power supply, delivering 600W RMS to the subwoofer and 400W RMS to the satellite, both of which are housed in birch plywood enclosures. A storage compartment is provided within the subwoofer enclosure to securely house both the satellite speaker and its supplied mounting pole for storage and transport.
The pole consists of two sections, one of which is telescopic, to allow adjusting satellite height with respect to the subwoofer to ensure precise coverage in every venue. The slim proportions of the satellite facilitate a wide horizontal dispersion of 110°, while the precision placement of the six 3″ drivers, to form a J-array, creates a vertical dispersion of 30° (+10° / -20°). The subwoofer is equipped with aluminum handles, complete with a rubber insert, for a comfortable grip while transporting the entire system.
The fanless amplifier module is protected by diecast aluminum, while on-board DSP offers a choice of eight dedicated presets. The VERTUS CS 1000 is compact in dimension but big on sound, with a selectable high-pass filter ensuring optimum reproduction. It simply combines four systems in a two per-side stereo configuration to achieve 8.000W peak.
