USA - Harman Professional Solutions has unveiled its latest addition to the JBL Professional PRX Column Portable PA family, the PRX One all-in-one portable PA. JBL Professional also introduced the universal JBL Pro Connect app for simplified management of the PRX One system.
PRX One meets the needs of a broad range of portable and installed applications, delivering unmatched power, acoustic performance and functionality in a sleek, compact package weighing just 56 pounds. The system delivers 130 dB of wide, full bandwidth SPL with consistent front-to-back throw, thanks to its custom-engineered, 12-tweeter column array, featuring JBL A.I.M. (Array Inumbration Mechanics) acoustic design; 12-inch bass-reflex woofer; and a built-in 2,000-watt (peak) Class D amplifier.
Performers will benefit from PRX One’s comprehensive suite of professional-grade Lexicon and dbx processors and eight customizable pre-sets. Built-in effects include reverb, 8-band EQ, delay, compression, limiting, ducking, echo, sub synth and dbx DriveRack Inside technology, featuring AFS Pro Automatic Feedback Suppression; Triple Tier DSP control offers multi-level user experiences based on knowledge level.
PRX One’s Soundcraft-designed seven-channel, dual-mode digital mixer that can be set to control either general mix functions or channel-strip functions, all manageable via a full-colour LCD or the new JBL Pro Connect universal app.
A full-colour LCD screen provides complete access to all functions, and a convenient Setup Saver saves snapshots for easy recall. Simple Success dynamic LED metering gives users a fast, easy way to verify levels and channel functions such as mute and clipping.
“Whether you’re a singer/songwriter, DJ, corporate presenter or educator, sounding great is critical,” says Brandon Knudsen, JBL product manager, loudspeaker professional solutions. “So, when we set out to design a new compact column PA, acoustic performance was top of our list. But at the same time, we know that every scenario is unique.
“We’ve outfitted the PRX One with an incredibly versatile feature set that we believe will appeal to a broad range of performers: Singer/songwriters will appreciate its robust DSP and I/O set, while DJs will love the ability to push the system hard, with that deep bass they crave. And, presenters and educators will appreciate the system’s slim, discreet profile and presets that will have them sounding their best instantly. Everyone will be thrilled to leave the outboard gear behind and lighten their load-in, no matter where they play.”
Available for Android and iOS phones and tablets, the new JBL Pro Connect app opens up ‘a world of possibilities for hands-on control over a full-suite of PRX ONE mixer, DSP, and Bluetooth features’. The streamlined interface makes it easy to adjust and control every feature on multiple speakers from anywhere in the room, including adjusting volume levels and EQ, activating Lexicon reverb and effects.
