JBL Professional EON700 Series Portable PA
Latest evolution brings acoustic performance, power and versatility to portable systems for live sound and installed applications
HARMAN Professional Solutions introduces the EON700 Series portable PA loudspeakers and subwoofer with Bluetooth.
Launched in 1995, JBL’s best-selling EON family of PAs set the benchmark for how great a powered loudspeaker system can be.
The EON700 Series represents a major step forward in innovation and technology by delivering intelligible, consistent coverage at any volume level. JBL engineers used proprietary design and measurement techniques to deliver, what they claim are the best-performing loudspeakers in their category. EON700 leverages the latest acoustic science, transducer designs, cabinet materials and advanced DSP, amplification and control technologies to deliver extraordinary performance in a highly flexible, easy to use, portable system.
With four models available, including the 10-inch EON710, the 12-inch EON712 and the 15-inch EON715 powered PA speakers and the 18-inch EON718S subwoofer, EON700 systems cover the needs of today’s working musicians and sound providers. These flexible systems are designed to effortlessly scale with customers’ needs, from DJ performances and full bands to solo singer/songwriter gigs, presentations and worship events. Configure speakers as mains or stage monitors, hung or stacked, in portable systems or permanent installations.
Dial in optimal system sound using a built-in 3-channel mixer and dbx DriveRack Inside technology, featuring Automatic Feedback Suppression, 8-band output EQ and optimised use-case presets. Access functions quickly and easily via an onboard backlit colour LCD screen or take control from anywhere using the JBL Pro Connect app. Bluetooth 5.0 streaming and control, mounting options and built-in speaker delay bring even more versatility to these rugged, reliable systems.
Acoustics and Amplifier
JBL’s advanced waveguide and transducer technologies, coupled with efficient amplification, ensure uniform coverage across the entire listening area, even when pushing the system to the limit. Woofers are redesigned for lower impedance and higher efficiency, an improved horn delivers a smooth off-axis beamwidth and JBL’s powerful 2414H compression driver features a premium neodymium magnet for balanced response in a lightweight footprint. Speakers are powered by 1,300 (loudspeakers) or 1,500 (subwoofer) watts of efficient discrete Class D amplification, for clean, clear sound. It all adds up to superior coverage, consistency and intelligibility at any volume.
Advanced DSP and Control
EON700’s advanced DSP package provides comprehensive control over EQ, limiters, delay, dbx Automatic Feedback Suppression, ducking and other speaker functions. Access settings on-speaker via an integrated backlit LCD screen, or from anywhere in the venue using the JBL Pro Connect App. Built-in Bluetooth 5.0 audio streaming (full-range speakers) and control take advantage of the newest protocol’s security features, low latency, broad range and improved audio fidelity.
EON700 loudspeakers can be used as main PA speakers or floor monitors. Full-range models feature top and rear suspension points for flying speakers; rear suspension points serve as connections for fixed installations, using an optional universal yoke mount. Indexed feet moulded into enclosures enable a range of acoustic configurations and secure stacking for traditional stand-up configurations and convenient storage and transport. EON718S subwoofers feature a threaded pole mount for full-range speakers and are easily stacked for cardioid configurations.
Rugged and Reliable
JBL engineers are committed to making the EON’s lifespan as long as possible—not only in terms of reliability, but in terms of how good the system sounds every time it’s turned on.
Full-range speakers feature FEA optimised composite enclosures, taking advantage of injection-molding and mechanical-shaping techniques for added durability without sacrificing cabinet size or performance. Subwoofers are housed in rugged 15-ply birch enclosures; computer-optimised ergonomic handles make moving boxes a breeze.
Every JBL Professional product undergoes stringent testing that goes above and beyond any conditions the product would face in the real world. A 100-hour power test ensures longevity so musicians and audio engineers can rely on JBL components in any scenario.
