JBL PRX600 Series loudspeakers
JBL Professional in Northridge, Calif., introduces its PRX600 Series active portable loudspeakers ($1,199 to $1,999 MSRP), which are designed for any small to mid-sized live sound environment. The new PRX600 Series comprises four full-range cabinets (PRX612M, PRX615M, PRX625, PRX635) and two subwoofers (PRX618S and PRX618S-XLF).
Using tour-tested JBL Differential Drive speaker technology, dbx Type IV limiting circuitry and Crown Class-D amplifiers, the PRX600 Series is offered in a package that is light, small and professional in both function and appearance. At the core of the PRX line is a fully integrated DSP input section providing mic/line level input, selectable system EQ and a premium A/D converter for a maximum signal-to-noise ratio.
PRX600 Series loudspeakers use new, ultra-low noise A/D converters that reduce idle noise and are said to improve the overall spectral balance and audio performance of the speakers. JBL states that it re-voiced the entire line for better clarity and tone. The company added a new, professionally discrete appearance and strategically located M-10 suspension points on the full-range cabinets for installation in any commercial facility or house of worship. The new models are said to be at least 15 percent lighter and 20 percent smaller than their predecessors for an optimal “performance-to-weight” ratio.
In addition to meeting the performance requirements for the PRX600 Series, JBL accepted a new challenge to meet Harman’s “Green Edge” promise of being environmentally responsible. The new speakers require less wood and less plastic than their predecessors, use less energy to build and will use less fuel (due to the lower weight) to transport than previous models.
All PRX600 Series loudspeakers include: proprietary JBL Differential Drive neodymium woofers; powder-coated, obsidian, 16-gauge perforated steel grilles; obsidian DuraFlex finish; integrated handles with backing cups; commercial-grade, lightweight, multi-layer, 18mm plywood cabinetry; tongue and groove construction; dual 36mm pole sockets on the PRX612M and PRX615M; single 36mm pole sockets on the PRX635/PRX618S; and an M20 pole socket on the PRX618S-XLF.
