JBL Professional EON615 loudspeaker

At Winter NAMM 2014, Harman’s JBL Professional announced the latest addition to its EON portable loudspeakers with the new EON600 Series, which uses JBL’s advanced waveguide technology and proprietary transducers, promising to bring the quality of high-end studio monitors to a highly flexible, easy-to-use P.A. system.

The first model in the EON600 Series is the EON615 15-inch 2-way loudspeaker. It features built-in, 1000-watt power amplification, providing exceptional headroom for a variety of applications, from fixed P.A. to gigging bands. Custom JBL high- and low-frequency transducers deliver massive sound pressure levels with lower distortion throughout the frequency range.

The foundation of the EON615's performance is a breakthrough approach to waveguide design, which JBL says solves "the inherent beaminess of conventional speaker systems that causes them to have a different frequency response off-axis than on-axis." JBL engineers examined the radiation characteristics of the EON's high- and low-frequency drivers at 36 different points employing JBL's exclusive, state-of-the-art measurement techniques, then designed individual waveguides for both components that control the sound radiation at the high frequencies, the crossover point, and at the low frequencies.

Special fluting is designed into the structure that guides the frequencies through the full range of the system, resulting in consistent response throughout its 90-degree coverage pattern. The quality and consistency between on-axis and off-axis response promises uniform coverage and high intelligibility for a smooth, transparent sound that is consistent throughout an entire audience.

JBL engineers developed an iOS and Android supported interface to be paired with the Bluetooth Smart Ready 4.0 for controlling master volume, adjusting the 5-way, user-definable parametric EQ, and saving and recalling user presets. The interface controls EON’s on-board 32-bit, 130MHz, ultra-low power, audio DSP subsystem, so it's fast and efficient with superb audio quality. Four strategically placed handles allow easy handling, indexed feet allow secure stacking, transportation and storage, and extra-strong enclosures ensure rugged reliability, a hallmark of all JBL products.
