The 2-way 15"; the most recognizable form of portable PA loudspeakers, the perfect balance between size and performance. The PRX515 truly is an exception; it’s smaller and lighter without compromising on performance. For applications requiring full bandwidth sound reproduction, using only a pair of speakers, the PRX515 delivers the optimum balance. For live music, recorded music playback and speech the user has the option of tailoring the EQ, ‘flat’ for speech intelligibility, and ‘boost’ for enhanced bass and crisp highs in recorded music playback. A microphone can be directly connected to the speaker input for quick on-the-fly PA applications.
The PRX515 is a self-powered, lightweight two-way loudspeaker system capable of delivering a very high level of performance. The PRX515 is comprised of a 380 mm (15
in) 265F Differential Drive® woofer, a 2408H 37.5 mm (1.5 in) annular polymer diaphragm,
neodymium compression driver mounted to a
70° by 70° horn, all driven by a multi-channel
Crown International Class-D digital power
amplifier. A propriety DSP chip is at the core
of a fully featured input section, providing
user selectable system EQ, protection, input
sensitivity selection, cross-over functionality,
dynamic limiting and discrete component
The enclosure is constructed of quality
plywood and coated in JBL’s rugged
DuraFlex™ finish. Durable polypropylene
end-caps add extra protection for the cabinet.
An integrated pole mount on the bottom endcap
enables easy deployment. The CNCmachined
steel grille wraps around the sides
of the enclosure so there are no protruding lips on the front of the box to create acoustical interference. The grille is also lined with an acoustically transparent foam to provide additional driver protection.
The amplifier input panel offers XLR or ¼
inch jack compatibility and a sensitivity
switch provides extra flexibility, making it
possible to connect literally any sound source without using a mixer. Signal present and overload lights indicate the system status and assist in setting the optimum level, via the level control knob.
