The VTC C5 is a high output low profile 2 x 12-inch stage monitor capable of delivering extremely accurate reproduction and outstanding vocal clarity even in the most demanding professional touring applications. The cabinet angle and uniform 60º x 60º directivity provides optimal coverage for medium and large stage plots.

The Neodymium magnet coaxial driver delivers 180 watts of high frequency program with full 60º x 60º degree coverage from the 2.5-inch titanium diaphragm horn assembly. The dual 12-inch Neodymium woofers component delivers an additional 1200 watts of low frequency support.

An Active / Passive Bypass Switch on the input panel allows the VTC C5 enclosure to run as a full range cabinet with its internal passive crossover network, making it ideal for repeater and side fill applications where quick plug and play connection to a single amp channel is required. In Active mode, the internal crossover is bypassed allowing efficient bi-amp operation of the C5 for critical monitoring applications. The C5 can be opened and modified simply in the field for left or right facing horn configurations.

Built for touring applications, the VTC C5 uses a solid 5/8-inch (15mm) 11-ply Russian Birch plywood cabinet construction; integrated handles and a heavy-gauge perforated all metal grille to protect the speaker components.
