Drawing on its vast experience in the art and science of loudspeaker technology, JBL continually sets new standards for the audio industry while creating elegant solutions for the challenges that face all sound professionals. A typical challenge of many sound reinforcement applications is to provide high quality, full bandwidth sound evenly dispersed across a coverage area greater than 100 degrees. This is often addressed by mounting two speaker systems splayed to achieve wider horizontal coverage. But this approach produces interference where the coverage patterns overlap, resulting in uneven sound fields and compromised intelligibility. JBL engineers created an innovative solution to this problem: the CWT128 Dual 8" 2-Way Loudspeaker System featuring CWT Crossfired Waveguide Technology.


Crossfire Waveguide Technology
At the heart of the CWT128 is the CWT Waveguide featuring a wide coverage pattern designed to provide seamless horizontal coverage across a full 160 degrees.

A Wide Range of Applications
The CWT128 is specifically designed to work in a variety of performance spaces including performing arts facilities, houses of worship, auditoriums, lecture halls, and conference facilities.

Smaller Footprint with High Performance
The CWT128 addresses all the practical realities of configuring, installing and managing a fixed installation sound system.
