FBT is showing an expanded range of its popular Ventis speakers at this year’s Prolight + Sound. New to the series are floor monitors and an 8″ full range cabinet.
Available in both powered and passive configurations, the newcomers – the Ventis 108A, 112MA, and 115MA, the new models feature B&C compression drivers plus FBT’s own custom, long excursion woofers. FBT says the new additions feature Class D amplification for LF and Class H/AB for HF, plus onboard digital signal processing: ‘with presets for every occasion.’
The 108A includes a 200mm (8”) woofer and 50mm (2”) voice coil, driven by 700W + 200W bi-amplification to deliver 131dB SPL. With a frequency response of 65Hz to 20 kHz, and broad coverage courtesy of the 80°(H) x 50°(V) Constant Directivity Rotatable Horn, the Ventis 108A is suited to wall or pole mounting. The passive version handles 250W into 8ohm for 126dB SPL, and features a built-in passive crossover with soft-trip protection for the LF and HF, plus Speakon NL-4 In and Link Out connectors, and four M5 rigging points for installation.
Meanwhile, the 112MA and 115MA bring floor monitoring to Ventis. Rated at 700W + 200W, the bi-amplified 112MA delivers 132dB SPL in a bass reflex design, using a 320mm (12”) coaxial custom woofer with a 64mm (2.5’’) voice coil, 25mm (1”) B&C throat and 44mm (1.7”) voice
coil. The enclosure has a frequency response of 55Hz to 20kHz with 90° conical dispersion, while onboard DSP offers six factory presents for a broad range of scenarios. For flexibility in use, the monitor offers a 35mm (1.38’’) stand socket, two integrated carrying handles and an
optional wall mount bracket. Alternatively, the passive 112M is rated at 400W into 8ohm delivering 129dB SPL, with a built-in passive crossover and Speakon NL-4 In and Link Out connectors.
Finally, the 115MA is again rated at 700W + 200W, delivering 132dB SPL via a 380mm (15”) coaxial custom woofer with a 64mm (2.5’’) voice coil, and a 25mm (1”) B&C throat with a 44mm (1.7”) voice coil. The larger monitor’s frequency response is 50Hz to 20kHz with 90° conical dispersion, and six factory presets are again available via onboard DSP. As with the smaller version, a 35mm (1.38’’) stand socket and two integrated carrying handles are included alongside an optional wall mount bracket. The passive version, the Ventis 115M, is rated at 400W for 130dB SPL.
