LAS VEGAS, Nevada – Featuring advanced waveguide technology and the latest in transducer design, HARMAN’s JBL Professional is adding two new models to its EON600 Series portable PA loudspeakers: the EON610 10-inch 2-way loudspeaker and the EON612 12-inch 2-way loudspeaker. Along with the previously introduced EON615 
loudspeaker, the EON610 and EON612 deliver high-end studio monitor quality sound in a rugged, lightweight design.

 

“Since its introduction in January, the EON615 has been extremely well-received and the addition of the EON610 and EON612 give today’s working musicians and sound providers modern, compact options for a portable sound system that offers truly unmatched sound quality,” said Andy Flint, Senior Manager, Portable PA Marketing, JBL Professional. “The EON600 Series represents a complete rethinking of how truly good an affordable, self-contained, portable PA system can be.”

The EON610 and EON612 feature built-in, 1000-watt power amplification, providing exceptional headroom for a variety of applications, from fixed PA 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 EON600's performance is a breakthrough approach to waveguide design, solving 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 entire coverage pattern. The quality and consistency between on-axis and off-axis response delivers uniform coverage and high intelligibility, which means the EON600's smooth,  transparent sound is the same for the entire audience. These characteristics are the foundation of high-end studio monitor sound and are now available for the first time in a portable, affordable system.

Knowing that fine-tuning sound requires sophisticated yet convenient control, 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 onboard best-in-class 32-bit, 130 mHz, 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.
