A new range comprising three powered two-way loudspeakers and two powered subwoofers has been unveiled by Harman Professional Solutions – the JBL PRX900 Series.
The company designed the range to feature advanced acoustics, comprehensive DSP, great power performance and complete BLE control via the JBL Pro Connect app.
The line is built from the ground up to leverage JBL’s most advanced acoustic technologies. All-new proprietary driver systems – powered by Class D amplifiers – were developed to deliver clarity and definition even at maximum volume, with improved dispersion and beam width and smooth low-frequency extension.
The PRX900 Series’ DSP package, accessible via onboard LCDs and the JBL Pro Connect app, includes 12-band parametric EQ for system tuning and nuanced tonal control, and integrated dbx Drive Rack technology, featuring live and fixed Automatic Feedback Suppression, soft system limiter with Soundcraft Overeasy option and speaker delay settings and presets.
The JBL Pro Connect app can be used to control up to 10 speakers; integrate with JBL EON One MK2, PRX One and EON700 systems; and access app-only functions including speaker snapshots and grouping.
The PRX900 Series is designed to withstand the rigours of the road, with rigid composite loudspeaker cabinets featuring computer-modelled ribbing designed for optimal acoustic performance and durability, while subwoofers are housed in 18mm birch cabinets designed with optimised bracing for smooth, accurate low-frequency response. The series is backed by a seven-year warranty.
“For years, our PRX800 Series loudspeakers have been first-call systems for bands, DJs, installers and houses of worship in large part thanks to their acoustic profile, their low-end extension, and their volume,” said Brandon Knudsen, Harman Professional product manager, portable PA loudspeakers. “With the PRX900 Series, we’re taking things to the next level with next-gen acoustic innovations and an even brawnier power package to deliver clean, clear sound at any volume. Systems take advantage of the latest BLE technology and the JBL Pro Connect app ecosystem, for unrivalled control.”
The PRX900 Series is a solution for DJs and bands, music venues, rental houses, corporate A/V providers, or others, for portable or installed scenarios.
