NAMM 2020: JBL to showcase new portable PA loudspeakers

The IRX Series includes two speaker models

HARMAN Professional Solutions has announced that JBL will launch its new IRX Series portable PA loudspeakers at NAMM 2020.

The IRX Series includes the IRX108BT, which features an eight inch woofer, and the IRX112BT, which features a 12 inch woofer.

“Today’s performers need a portable, easy-to-use PA system that delivers professional results at an affordable price,” said Brandon, Knudsen, loudspeaker product manager, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “We’re excited to showcase our new IRX Series loudspeakers at the 2020 NAMM and CES shows, which combine impressive volume output and detail with an assortment of versatile features like Bluetooth audio streaming in a compact, lightweight design. Best of all, the IRX112BT and IRX108BT are the most affordable powered speakers JBL has ever offered.”

The new pro sound speakers are equipped with a 1,300-Watt amplifier, four custom EQ presets, and built-in dbx Automatic Feedback Suppression, which makes your performance or presentation sound polished and prevents feedback. In addition, one-touch ducking automatically lowers music volume when speech input is detected to ensure the vocals take precedence.

With a lightweight cabinet and ergonomic handles, the IRX Series can be easily transported and lifted, and its custom, road-ready grille features a tight-gauge honeycomb pattern with a bespoke bevel for added durability. Furthermore, IRX features two combination XLR/TRS inputs with pro sound preamps, and one-button Bluetooth connectivity.

The IRX112BT has a 12 inch woofer for an extended frequency range down to 53 Hz and a maximum SPL of 129 dB, while the IRX108BT features an eight inch woofer with an extended frequency response down to 54 Hz and a maximum SPL of 127 dB. Both models come with an integrated pole mount to elevate the speakers for improved performance in PA applications.

Visitors can experience the IRX Series loudspeakers at booth 14508 in the ACC North Hall.

The JBL IRX108BT and the JBL IRX112BT will be available from February 2020 priced at £299 RRP inc VAT and £349 RRP inc VAT respectively.
