• JBL Professional introduces EON700 Series portable PA loudspeakers with Bluetooth


    JBL Professional yesterday introduced the EON700 Series portable PA loudspeakers and subwoofer with Bluetooth.

    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 target the needs of today’s working musicians and sound providers, from DJ performances and full bands to solo singer/songwriter gigs, presentations and worship events. Speakers con be configured as mains or stage monitors, hung or stacked, in portable systems or permanent installations.

    A built-in 3-channel mixer is provided, as well as dbx automatic feedback reduction, 8-band output EQ and optimized use-case presets. Functions are accessed via an onboard backlit color LCD screen or using the JBL Pro Connect app. Bluetooth 5.0 streaming and control, mounting options and built-in speaker delay bring more versatility to these systems.

    “The EON700 Series truly represents the next generation of portable PA systems,” says Brandon Knudsen, HARMAN Professional Product Manager, Portable PA Loudspeakers. “When we started designing these new PAs, we looked at our best-selling EON Series and made that core technology even better by upgrading drivers and amplifiers, refining waveguides, supercharging the effects package, and incorporating the most up-to-date Bluetooth protocol and universal app control. The result is a powerful, versatile system that sounds incredible at any volume, anywhere in the room.


    “We’ve made it even easier than ever for performers to sound their best without having to rely on outboard gear, thanks to built-in advanced dbx DSP and presets that are optimized for a range of scenarios. And the series’ incredible power-to-size ratio and low weight mean a faster, lighter load-in, which we can all appreciate.”

    Woofers are reportedly redesigned for "lower impedance and higher efficiency", horns improved and couple to the JBL’s 2414H 1-ich coil compression driver with neodymium magnet . Speakers are powered by 650 or 750 (subwoofer) RMS watts of Class D amplification.

    EON700’s DSP package provides comprehensive control over EQ, limiters, delay, dbx Automatic Feedback Suppression, ducking and other speaker functions.

    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 molded into enclosures enable a range of acoustic configurations and stacking for traditional stand-up configurations and storage. EON718S subwoofers feature a threaded pole mount for full-range speakers and are easily stacked for cardioid configurations.

    Full-range speakers feature FEA optimized composite injection-molded enclosures. Subwoofers are housed in rugged 15-ply birch enclosures; with ergonomic handles.
