Designed in cooperation with sister companies Crown and dbx, the JBL DP2 DrivePack features 2200W peak (1100W continuous) output power and comprehensive digital signal processing, including patented Class-I power amplifier technology from Crown and onboard DSP functionality that communicates readiness and operational status and monitors fault detection of components and electronics.

Both models feature rigging hardware that uses quick-release pins and end-mounted metal frames to couple adjacent units together in rigid but flexible arrays. The VT4887ADP suspension hardware features quick-release pins and end-mounted metal tubes to couple adjacent units together.
