What is it?A self-powered two-way speaker with onboard mixer and equalisation. DetailsRe-voiced for peak performance and “enhanced audio precision”, the EON515XT is said to be the most advanced EON system to date, offering improved input sensitivity plus a lower noise floor, and adding user-selectable EQ control. Frequency response is quoted at 42Hz – 18kHz (+/- 3dB) with a max SPL of 132dB. The design features Differential Drive woofers (integral to the touring-standard JBL VERTEC systems) which incorporate neodymium magnets and dual voice coils, offering much lower weight than conventional drivers. High frequencies are handled by JBL’s next-generation neodymium compression drivers incorporating a new 1.5” annular polymer diaphragm design. The EON515XT houses a proprietary Crown Class-D amplifier designed to manage high heat levels and large dynamic peaks – both conditions likely to cause unwanted distortion. With two, 1⁄4” TRS jacks and one Neutrix combination connector, the onboard mixer is capable of blending three sources simultaneously. A convenient ‘loop-through’ option allows for additional signal routing while the global bass and treble adjustment provides a degree of control over EQ. Universal mounting capabilities make the EON515XT suitable for live performers, fixed installations or commercial A/V rental companies. The speaker can be used on a tripod stand, mounted on a subwoofer with a pole, as a floor monitor or in a fixed position suspended by M10 points.
