JBL Professional today announced the addition of five new loudspeakers to its AE Series (Application Engineered) lineup. The AM7315/64 and AM7315/95 are 3-way full-range models, the AM7200/64 and AM7200/95 are mid/high models, and the AL7115 is a 15-inch low-frequency model. All five models are designed to deliver high output in applications where clear, powerful sound is required over a wide coverage area. With the addition of the new models, the JBL Professional AE Series now provides more flexibility to audio professionals.
The 3-way AM7315/64 and AM7315/95 can be either bi-amplified or tri-amplified, while the 2-way AM7200/64 and AM7200/95 can either be bi-amplified or operate as a full passive system. The AL7115 low-frequency module is designed to work with the AM7200/64 and AM7200/95 in a low-profile array application where a full-range 3-way system is desired.
The AE Series 3-way and midrange/high-frequency speakers utilize a host of exclusive JBL
technologies to deliver clear, accurate sound even at high volume levels. All the low-frequency drivers feature JBLâ€™s patented Differential DriveÂ® dual-3-inch voice coil and dual-magnetic-gap design, a configuration that provides high-power output with low distortion and extended bass response.
The AM7315/64, AM7315/95, AM7200/64 and AM7200/95 utilize JBLâ€™s exclusive CMCDâ„¢ Cone Midrange Compression Driver technology, which combines high efficiency with extended bandwidth both up and down the frequency range to seamlessly cover the entire vocal range. The 2432H 1.5-inch exit, 3-inch exit CMCD compression driver operates in conjunction with a rotatable Progressive Transitionâ„¢ waveguide, which provides precise directivity control. Because the waveguide can be rotated, the loudspeakers can be used horizontally or vertically while maintaining an optimum coverage pattern.
The AL7115 low-frequency module is designed to complement the AM7200/64 and AM7200/95 to create a full-range, extended-bass system. Using the JBL PAF-3K planar array frame kit, the AL7115 can be fitted between two AM7200 mid-high loudspeakers to form a low profile, three-wide full-range array. The AL7115 utilizes a JBL 2265H 15-inch Differential Drive transducer to deliver powerful, articulate low-frequency output, with more than 800 watts power-handling capability.
â€œOur new AE Series models round out the line to give system designers more installation options,â€? stated Jon Sager, Director of Market Development for Installed Sound, JBL Professional. â€œAll five models utilize the same JBL transducer technology as the 23 AE Series models introduced over the past 12 months. With the introduction of these five models, itâ€™s easier than ever to create the optimum sound-reinforcement configuration for a greater variety of applications.â€?
