JBL adds white models to PRX400 Series

JBL Professional has released white versions of its PRX415M and PRX412M passive portable loudspeakers.

The PRX415M-WH and PRX412M-WH can be used as floor monitors or for overhead suspension in permanent installation applications. As with all PRX400 Series loudspeakers, they are designed to work with Crown Audio’s XTi2 Series amplifiers.

XTi2 amps incorporate enhanced pre-set performance tunings for the PRX400 Series, including crossover points for a sat/subwoofer setup, and optimised parametric filters that bring out the full potential of the speakers. JBL PRX400 tunings are also available in the dbx DriveRack PA+ signal processor/complete loudspeaker management system.

“The PRX400 Series has been a tremendous success for end-users and sound contractors who require exceptional sound and rugged reliability in a passive loudspeaker format,” said Andy Flint, senior manager, portable PA marketing, JBL Loudspeaker Group. “In addition to our commitment to providing market-leading audio performance, the PRX415M-WH and PRX412M-WH demonstrate our commitment to providing a variety of aesthetic options for audio applications.”

The new models utilise high-quality, tour-tested drivers and components, which deliver clear, detailed and dynamic sound for bands, DJs, nightclubs, schools, houses of worship and other professional touring and installed sound applications. They feature Neutrik SpeakON combination connectors and are built from lightweight, yet tough 18mm birch/poplar multi-laminate hardwood covered in JBL’s DuraFlex covering. They also include rugged 16 gauge steel grilles with acoustically transparent white cloth backing.

The PRX415M-WH and PRX412M-WH incorporate twelve M-10 suspension points and hardened steel eyebolts for safe hanging in small installations. In common with all JBL Professional products, they have survived JBL’s power test, in which they are submitted to 100 hours of continuous, high-level input.

The speakers also go through a variety of environmental and strength trials, including harsh temperatures and humidity, ensuring they will perform well anywhere. They also incorporate JBL’s Sonic Guard speaker protection circuit, which automatically attenuates the signal going into the high-frequency section of the speaker if too much input signal is detected, and restores normal operation when the overload condition passes.
