USA - Harman Professional Solutions has introduced the JBL PRX900 Series of loudspeakers and subwoofers, which feature advanced acoustics, comprehensive DSP, power performance and complete BLE control via the JBL Pro Connect app.
The line, which includes three powered two-way loudspeakers and two powered subwoofers, is built from the ground up to leverage JBL’s most advanced acoustic innovations. All-new proprietary driver systems - powered by Class D amplifiers -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 PRX900 Series is designed to withstand the rigors of the road. Rigid composite loudspeaker cabinets feature computer-modelled ribbing for optimal acoustic performance and durability, while subwoofers are housed in 18 mm birch cabinets with optimized bracing for smooth, accurate low-frequency response. Like with every JBL product, everything is reinforced by test and validation protocols and 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 designed as a versatile solution for DJs and bands, music venues, rental houses, corporate A/V providers, or anyone who seeks durable professional systems that deliver powerful, room-filling sound in any portable or installed scenario. Key innovations include:
Patented JBL 2408H-2 1.5” compression drivers with poly-annular diaphragms and neodymium magnets provide clear, detailed high-frequency response; innovative new horns with updated JBL Image Control Waveguides deliver consistent beamwidth and frequency dispersion. Next-generation woofers with ferrite magnets deliver smooth, natural bass response, and an FEA flared port design reduces air noise and distortion.
The PRX900 Series is fully loaded with comprehensive DSP, all accessible via the JBL Pro Connect app or onboard full-colour LCD. Processing includes 12-band parametric EQ, plus optimised presets and snapshots. Onboard dbx DriveRack technology features live and fixed Automatic Feedback Suppression, hard and soft system limiters and 180ms of speaker delay in 100-microsecond intervals for full time-aligned systems.
