PL+S 2016, FRANKFURT—JBL Professional by HARMAN today unveiled the EON ONE all-in-one linear-array P.A. system. Created by the world leaders in loudspeaker and line array technology, the EON ONE combines the superior sound quality of a professional system with the convenience and streamlined look of a compact, column-style solution. Featuring Bluetooth® audio, a six-channel mixer and a unique design that can be carried with one hand, EON ONE is ideal for gigging musicians and DJs, coffee houses, fitness studios, corporate environments and more.
With a maximum SPL of 118 dB, the EON ONE provides detailed, distortion-free audio. An unobstructed 10” bass-reflex subwoofer delivers tight, accurate low-frequency response that is ideal for DJs and playing back recorded music. The high-frequency section features JBL’s patent-pending Directivity Control Geometry, which optimizes the spacing and angles of the six two-inch high-frequency drivers. This creates extraordinarily even front-to-back coverage, ensuring that everyone in the listening area hears the sound accurately and consistently.
The built-in, six-channel mixer enables users to connect microphones, instruments, such as acoustic guitars, electric guitars and keyboards, and other sources. The mixer also features bass, treble and reverb controls to optimize the sound. Bluetooth audio streaming makes it easy to play back recorded music from smartphones, tablets and more.
As the first truly all-in-one linear-array P.A. system, the EON ONE is easy to carry with just one hand. The high-frequency section and two spacers fit conveniently into the base unit, providing a streamlined package. Users can set up the system in seconds, choosing the right number of spacers to optimize the sound for each application. Two spacers provide a long throw for live performances and large crowds, while a single spacer is ideal for conferences, gyms and medium-sized groups. For small meetings and intimate events, users can place the high-frequency section directly atop the base unit.
“The EON ONE provides a sleek, highly portable solution without compromise,” said Craig Lambrecht, Retail & Recording Solutions, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “The EON ONE was created by the same engineers behind the breakthrough technologies found in our flagship loudspeakers and reference monitors. We’re excited to bring world-class JBL sound quality to even more musicians and venues through this new form factor.”
