JBL PRX ONE Portable PA

JBL Professional Introduces the PRX ONE All-in-One Portable PA System and Pro Connect Control App

9 August 2021

Harman Professional Solutions announces its latest addition to the JBL Professional PRX Column Portable PA family, the PRX ONE all-in-one portable PA. JBL Professional also introduced the all new, universal JBL Pro Connect app for simplified management of the PRX ONE system.

PRX ONE meets the needs of a broad range of portable and installed applications, delivering power, acoustic performance and functionality in a sleek, compact package weighing just 25kg. The system delivers 130 dB of wide, full bandwidth SPL with consistent front-to-back throw, thanks to its custom-engineered, 12-tweeter column array, featuring JBL A.I.M. (Array Inumbration Mechanics) acoustic design; 12-inch bass-reflex woofer; and a built-in 2,000-watt (peak) Class D amplifier.

Performers at any experience level are able to dial in great sound fast using PRX ONE’s comprehensive suite of professional-grade Lexicon and dbx processors and eight customisable presets. Built-in effects include reverb, 8-band EQ, delay, compression, limiting, ducking, echo, sub synth and dbx DriveRack Inside technology, featuring AFS Pro Automatic Feedback Suppression; Triple Tier DSP control offers multi-level user experiences based on knowledge level.

PRX ONE’s Soundcraft-designed 7-channel, dual-mode digital mixer that can be set to control either general mix functions or channel-strip functions, all manageable via a full-colour LCD or the new JBL Pro Connect universal app.

The LCD screen provides complete access to all functions, and a convenient Setup Saver saves snapshots for easy recall. Simple Success dynamic LED metering gives users a fast, easy way to verify levels and channel functions such as mute and clipping.

“Whether you’re a singer/songwriter, DJ, corporate presenter or educator, sounding great is critical,” says Brandon Knudsen, JBL Product Manager, Loudspeaker Professional Solutions. “So, when we set out to design a new compact column PA, acoustic performance was top of our list. But at the same time, we know that every scenario is unique. We’ve outfitted the PRX ONE with a versatile feature set that we believe will appeal to a broad range of performers: Singer/songwriters will appreciate its robust DSP and I/O set, while DJs will love the deep bass, and ability to push the system hard. Presenters and educators will appreciate the system’s slim, discreet profile and presets that will have them sounding their best.”

Twelve custom-engineered tweeters work in combination with JBL’s A.I.M. geometrically optimised array-shading design to provide controlled, consistent front-to-back coverage and even response.

Custom-designed high-frequency transducers feature copper-capped pole pieces to reduce inductance for smoother, more precise response; transducers exhibit less power compression, offering more natural performance without the need for heavy DSP. High-frequency performance is optimised down to 500 Hz, allowing the woofer to deliver a more natural, accurate bass sound. PRX ONE’s acoustically optimised woofer delivers superior performance down to 35 Hz without the need for DSP.

Available for Android and iOS phones and tablets, the new JBL Pro Connect app opens up hands-on control over a full-suite of PRX ONE mixer, DSP, and Bluetooth features. The streamlined interface makes it easy to adjust and control every feature on multiple speakers from anywhere in the room, including adjusting volume levels and EQ, activating reverb and effects and much more.

PRX ONE gives artists room to grow their system: Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity allows remote control of up to 10 units using the JBL Pro Connect app, and an XLR Thru output offers true analog expansion with the ability to time-align multiple speakers, with up to 100 ms of delay per speaker. An optional bracket and adapter allow the array to be wall or truss-mounted independently of subwoofer for permanent installations. Transport is a breeze, thanks to PRX ONE’s computer-modelled ComfortGrip handle and nylon carry bag.

Connect microphones, instruments, mobile devices and wireless rigs using PRX ONE’s versatile I/O set, which features four pro-grade Neutrik XLR Combo jacks, two channels of dedicated phantom power, dedicated Hi-Z input and two USB 2.0 ports, which can be used to power external devices and AKG wireless systems.

Every PRX ONE undergoes 100 hours of rigorous stress testing to ensure that it’ll perform properly in real-world conditions. The system is housed in a durable shell that’s rugged enough for the most demanding gigs yet discreet enough to complement any presentation scenario.
