JBL crowns portable PA offering with SRX80030 January 2015
JBL Professional announced the introduction of the SRX800 Series portable powered loudspeakers at the recent NAMM show.
The SRX800 Series incorporates JBL transducers and built-in Crown DriveCore amplifiers to deliver high-quality sound with user-configurable DSP speaker-tuning capability. It will sit at the top of JBL’s portable PA inventory, filling a gap that existed between smaller systems and the leap to line array.
Models include the 12” two-way SRX812P, 15” two-way SRX812P, dual 15” three-way SRX835P, 18” SRX818SP subwoofer and the SRX828SP, which, according to JBL, is world’s only dual 18” powered subwoofer at its price point.
“The portable PA market has been moving more and more towards powered loudspeakers, and our new SRX800 Series was created to do nothing less than redefine the performance standards in the category,” said Andy Flint, senior manager, portable PA marketing, JBL Professional.
Press, distributors and dealers were given a sneak preview of the SRX – and other JBL innovations due for launch later in the year – at a special ‘kick-off’ event and tour of the Northridge HQ, one day ahead of the Anaheim show. Definite highlights of the tour included a visit to the terrifying power testing room (just ask anyone who’s been in there), demonstrations of the high-fidelity M series studio monitors, and a lunch supplied by famous Californian fast food outlet, In-N-Out Burger.
