NORTHRIDGE, California – Showtech Sound & Light Design, based in Dubai, UAE, has become the first company in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) to purchase HARMAN’s JBL VTX line array system, adding to its existing JBL VERTEC® line array system and wide range of HARMAN products.

Showtech purchased the system from Dubai-based HARMAN distributor GSL Professional LLC. The system consists of 24 VTX V25 line array loudspeakers along with 16 VTX S28 subwoofers. To power the VTX system, Showtech purchased 32 Crown I-Tech HD 12000 amplifiers.

Several years ago, Showtech was also the first company in the GCC to purchase JBL’s VERTEC VT4889 arrayable loudspeakers and the addition of VTX creates new opportunities for upcoming concerts, shows and other events.

As the first VTX system in the Middle East, GSL and Showtech are proud to demonstrate the latest technology introduced by JBL, including the D2 Dual Drivers found in the V25 cabinets. GSL believes that this system will bring a new standard to the rental and touring market due to JBL’s constant advancement in technology and vision towards the future.

Showtech’s HOD-Sound, Wasim Shaikh, commented, “We made this decision because of the performance of the products but also because of the ways in which the loudspeakers, amplifiers and other components are designed to work together. The purchase was made based on the professional and reliable performance of our VERTEC line arrays and we look forward to using the new system at upcoming concerts and events.”

Showtech’s Managing Director, Shaji George, commented, “We share a relationship of trust with GSL Professional and have been happy with JBL and HARMAN products over the years. HARMAN’s reliability makes our decision much easier when new products are introduced to the market.”

“This truly is a great sale for GSL Professional and will reflect highly for the HARMAN Professional brands in the Middle Eastern market,” said Shaikh.
