The EON515XT active loudspeaker features improved input sensitivity, a lowered noise floor, user-selectable EQ control and a re-voiced system for peak performance and enhanced audio precision.

The two-way EON515XT incorporates a JBL 2414H HF neodymium compression driver and a 15-inch JBL 265F-1 Differential Drive dual-voice-coil woofer matched to a proprietary Crown Class-D amplifier. The system has been re-voiced from previous models for better clarity and frequency balance and now delivers a stout 132dB maximum SPL.

The input sensitivity has been increased by 10 dB to accommodate keyboards, musical instruments, drum machines and lower-output sound reinforcement and DJ mixers. The EON15XT now offers user-adjustable EQ with individual bass and treble controls and a simplified 3-channel mixer configuration..

Built to take the rigors of the road, the JBL EON515XT has been restyled for discretion with a tough, molded black enclosure, black metal grille, black JBL badge and charcoal EON grille logo. The EON515XT can be pole-mounted on a subwoofer or tripod stand using its 36 mm pole-mount socket, used in a floor monitor position or flown using its integrated M10 suspension points. It offers two 1/4-inch TRS inputs, one combination XLR/TRS input and an XLR loop-through output for connecting another EON speaker, recording device or for routing to an external devices. Weighing 32.5 pounds, the EON515XT features multiple grip points.
