JBL CBT 200 LA 1 Column Speaker

200 cm Tall Constant Beamwidth Technology™ Line Array Column Speaker with Thirty-Two 50 mm (2 in) Drivers
The CBT 200LA-1, with Constant Beamwidth Technology™, represents a breakthrough in pattern control consistency and coverage options, utilizing complex analog delay beam-forming and amplitude tapering to accomplish superior, consistent coverage without the inconsistent vertical beaming, uneven coverage, and out-of-coverage lobing that are typical of both powered and nonpowered column speakers.


  • Patented Constant Beamwidth Technology™ provides true wide-band constant directivity coverage up to the highest frequencies and reduces out-of-coverage lobing.
  • 200 cm (6.6 ft) height extends pattern control to include lower frequencies.
  • Vertical pattern coverage switchable between 30° and 15° for medium or long-throw coverage.
  • Asymmetrical Progressive-Gradient vertical coverage setting directs more sound toward the far area of the listening space, making front to back sound levels more consistent. Progressive-Gradient extent is adjustable.
  • Narrow width of 98.5 mm (3.8 in) fits visually into a wide variety of applications.
  • Dynamic Sonic-Guard™ low-audibility overload protection.
  • Swivel (pan)/tilt wall bracket included
  • Built-in 70V/100V transformers, plus direct capability.

Frequency Range (-10 dB)

80 Hz – 20 kHz

Frequency Response (±3 dB)

130 Hz – 18 kHz (narrow coverage, music mode setting)

Coverage - Vertical

Narrow Mode:
15° (500 Hz – 16 kHz, +15°/-2° [<60° down to 220 Hz, <90° down to 140 Hz])
Broad Mode:
30° (400 Hz – 12 kHz, +15°/-8°, [<60° down to 220 Hz, < 90° down to 140 Hz])
Asymmetrical Progressive-Gradient Mode:
(Top speaker module set at “Narrow” and bottom speaker module at “Broad”, for “J-type” coverage, sending higher sound levels toward the far area of the listening space): 22.°(+7° from aiming axis up; -15° from aiming axis down, 300 Hz – 12 kHz, +15°/-8°, [<60° down to 220 Hz, <90° down to 140 Hz])

Coverage - Horizontal

150° (ave, 1 kHz – 4 kHz, ±20°)

Sensitivity - Narrow

(speech mode): 95 dB (2 kHz – 5 kHz)
(music mode): 92 dB (150 Hz – 18 kHz)

Sensitivity - Broad

(speech mode): 93 dB (2 kHz – 5 kHz)
(music mode): 90 dB (150 Hz– 18 kHz)

Sensitivity - Asymmetrical Progressive-Gradient Mode

(speech mode): 94 dB (2 kHz – 5 kHz)
(music mode): 91 dB (150 Hz – 18 kHz)

Nominal Impedance (direct)

8Ω per half (top and bottom) for 4 ohms total (in thru mode).
Min-Z for system = 2.9Ω.


Ensure identical polarity of hookup – for proper functioning, the two loudspeaker modules (top and bottom) must be hooked up in same polarity. Parallel hookup at the two sets of back panel input terminals is recommended.

400W (1600W peak) 100 hrs

Max SPL - Narrow

(speech mode): 123 dB cont ave (129 dB peak)
(music mode): 120 dB cont ave (126 dB peak)

Max SPL - Broad

(speech mode): 121 dB cont ave (127 dB peak)
(music mode): 118 dB cont ave (124 dB peak)

Max SPL - Asymmetrical Progressive-Gradient Mode

(speech mode): 122 dB cont ave (128 dB peak)
(music mode): 119 dB cont ave (125 dB peak)

70V/100V Transformer Type

Set individually per speaker module (top and bottom): 120W, 60W, 30W (15W at 70V only), and direct 8Ω, via switch. Total (with top & bottom set to same): 240W, 120W, 60W (30W at 70V only) and direct 4Ω. Max. insertion loss less than 1 dB at any tap.
