Harman-Kardon VS2210-9 Speaker User Manual

Two-Way Loudspeaker
System Utilizing
Horn-Loaded Midrange
Key Features:
Two-Way Mid-high Design, with horn-
loaded midrange for 90° x 50° pattern
control to 500 Hz
Very High Peak Output capability
Trapezoidal enclosure for easy cluster
DuraFlex finish, tough, weather resistant
and paintable
12 Suspension points (M10 Thread)
The model VS2210-9 is a mid-high boxed
system that provides maximum SPL, all in a
single compact package that can be
configured with other Venue Series systems.
With nominal 90° coverage pattern, systems
can be splayed together for increased
coverage and/or SPL requirements. A newly
designed 10" cone midrange driver loads the
waveguide midrange horn, extending pattern
control and giving exceptional clarity and
projection. The proven Optimized Aperture
HF horn completes this unique design.
The VS2210-9 is designed for bi-amplified
use only, utilizing the DSC260 digital
controller for crossover, signal alignment and
equalization functions, provides optimum
system performance. Additional equalization
in the DSC260 is user adjustable for room
The VS2210-9 is part of the JBL Venue
Series, a family of modular loudspeaker
systems designed for fixed installation
applications ranging from speech
reinforcement to large scale music
productions. All models are fitted with
suspension points that accept M10 threads.
The enclosures are coated with a hard
wearing, weather resistant, textured finish
DuraFlex. Premium 13 ply wood and an 18
gauge steel, foam backed grille enable the
Venue Series system to comply with
environmental test specifications.
The VS2210-9 utilizes the 2012H, a new 10"
cone driver designed specifically for loading
into the midrange horn, covering the mid-
frequency range. The transducer is rear
loaded with Thermal Transfer
chamber for
maximum efficiency.
The 38mm (1.5 in) exit 2447J large format
compression driver is coupled to an
Optimized Aperture Bi-Radial
horn providing
smooth even coverage. The Optimized
Aperture horn provides lower throat
distortion than its earlier predecessors while
extending frequency response to nearly
20 kHz.

Measured on-axis in the far field with 1 watt (2.83 V RMS @ 8 ohms or 4.0 V RMS @ 16 ohms) input and referenced to
1 meter distance using the inverse square law. Listed sound pressure represents an average from 300 Hz to 16 kHz.
Recommended Amplifier is a power capability value that should be taken as a guide.
JBL continually engages in research related to product improvement. New materials, production methods, and design
refinements are introduced into existing products without notice as a routine expression of that philosophy. For this
reason, any current JBL product may differ in some respect from its published description, but will always equal or
exceed the original design specifications unless otherwise stated.
