JBL introduces EON618S subwoofer

JBL Professional has lifted the curtain on the JBL EON618S, an 18-inch, 1,000W powered subwoofer that supports ‘true low-frequency extension’ and wireless control.

The EON618S is designed to be simultaneously lightweight and rugged, visually compatible with nearly any setting and capable of delivering sound that is ‘both clear and powerful’.

While the JBL EON618S weighs in at 78 pounds, it features a range of new features and capabilities. The JBL EON618S’s maximum SPL output is 134 dB, with a frequency range of 3Hz – 150Hz ( -10 dB) and a frequency response of 42.5Hz – 150Hz ( -3 dB). DSP parameters, including presets for EON600, EON200 and other manufacturers’ full-range loudspeakers, can be controlled via a Bluetooth app for iOS and Android. Selectable crossover presets are available through the EON Connect app. The JBL EON618S is tuned for optimal performance with the JBL EON610, JBL EON612 and JBL EON615 full-range systems.

Aesthetic design enhancements to the JBL EON618S include premium handles, a standard M20 threaded pole cup and a rugged enclosure. The JBL EON618S’s design maximises cabinet volume while maintaining a highly transportable form factor.

The JBL EON618S extends a tradition that started in 1995 with the introduction of the first JBL EON portable PA loudspeakers. In January 2014, JBL Professional continued the line with the JBL EON600 Series loudspeakers, featuring new waveguide technology for uniform coverage, an updated design with a new enclosure for road-worthy durability and Bluetooth control of all EQ functions for easy system adjustment.
