The CLA5000 is a perfect column array system for large, elegant events. It's crisp sound quality and perfect articulation of vocals make it excellent for weddings and corporate events. And the extremely powerful 18in subwoofer will fill large rooms with chest thumping bass.
A pair of CLA5000's will handle 1,000 person events without a problem. And if you need even more power, you can add on a pair of Vertus CLA206A arrays by mounting them directly on top of the CLA406.2 tops (mounting bracket required).
VERTUS CLA406.2 TOP ARRAY:
600W + 300W
133 dB SPL
ACTIVE COLUMN LINE ARRAY
Steeped in classic Italian design and acoustic expertise, VERTUS has been created with the aim of extending true line array technology, an undisputed success in the field of professional audio, into a new range of applications within both the live and fixed installation fields. The column system is compact and elegant, with a refined yet functional design. Most importantly it offers an uncompromising quality capable of successfully solving applications where conventional systems are inadequate.
Compared to a traditional two-way speaker, the sound is distributed in a much more uniform manner into the listening area, regardless of whether the application is indoors, outdoors or acoustically difficult in terms of reverberation. The cylindrical wave front of the CLA projects sound forwards in a very precise and coherent fashion without the reverberant performance that is typical of conventional speakers which can excite environmental reflections, directing acoustic energy where it is not needed, especially towards the ceiling and floor. Even acoustic feedback such as that generated by microphones is rejected to a far greater extent than a conventional enclosure.
Finally, the columns narrow dimensions allow the discreet, unobtrusive integration of the column into any environment.
The qualities of the system CLA can be summarized as:
High-end sound quality with a frequency response of 33Hz to 20kHz, designed specifically for live
Improved dispersion within a set listening area plus extended projection
High power performance and dynamic range thanks to the tri-amplification system
Portability and modularity – elements can be rapidly daisy-chained via a quick release system, extending both the vertical directivity and sound pressure level
Design and elegance for easy integration even in the most demanding installations – the compact dimensions ensure listeners will focus on the sound and not the speaker!

The Q118SA is a newly designed, extremely powerful subwoofer, capable of delivering extremely high SPL and guaranteeing significant low frequency extension. The optimization of the woofer load volume and port tube with BEM finite element simulation, and the careful development of the grille and the protective fabric to minimize acoustic impedance, has led to a net improvement in performances as compared with previous models. Equipped with an high excursion ceramic B&C woofer with 100mm ventilated coil, it has negligible power compression, ensuring maximum acoustic pressure even after hours of continuous use.
The supplied 1200W RMS class D amplifier with switching power is equipped with a digital signal processor with entirely new algorithms.
Equipped with 6 presets, each of which is not only associated with a different equalization – to tailor the subwoofer response to various usage conditions – but also with different dynamic processor calibration to extend the maximum acoustic pressure to very high levels, with no deterioration of the original signal. This ensures absolute configurability of the sound obtained, great flexibility of use and above all an impressive SPL/size ratio.
The 18mm birch plywood cabinet is equipped with 4 aluminum handles and two M20 stand supports, suitable for use on either the short or the long side. It is compatible with MITUS 206 and MUSE 210 systems in ground-stacked configuration, and is designed to allow 4 optional 100mm wheels to be fitted. An exceptionally powerful and versatile subwoofer that can be combined with a wide range of FBT speakers.
The presets include:
ORIGINAL: general preset, suitable for the majority of uses. Low pass filter is set at 95Hz, peak limiter is adjusted for getting the perfect balance between high SPL and low distortion
DEEP: this preset extends and boosts subwoofer low range to approx. 40Hz. Low pass filter is set at 95Hz, peak limiter is extremely fast and guarantees to remove almost completely the distortion due to amplifier clipping. This necessarily causes little reduction in maximum SPL. Generally recommended for applications requiring extremely pure sound and maximum low frequency extension.
PUNCH: Preset providing maximum power concentration in the 60 – 95Hz frequency range. Perfect for rock music and high power applications. Distortion is slightly higher, since it is less limited by the peak limiter, while sound pressure level increases. Low pass filter is set at 95Hz.
INFRA: Similar to DEEP as for the extension and absence of distortion. It differs for low pass filter setting at 75Hz. This allows for ground-stacked use of the subwoofer in applications featuring also a flying subwoofer. Thanks to the all pass filter for phase alignment, the frequency overlap in the 50Hz – 75Hz range for the two subwoofers is perfectly in phase.
CARDIOID REAR ORIGINAL 1 FRONT: preset to be used in systems with two subwoofers; select the ORIGINAL preset on the speaker oriented toward the audience.
CARDIOID REAR ORIGINAL 2 FRONT: preset to be used in systems with three subwoofers; select the ORIGINAL preset on the two speakers oriented toward the audience.
