Do you consider yourself a live sound ninja? Do you want to engage in audio guerrilla warfare? Do you like to strike hard and fast with maximum efficiency, leaving your joy-dazed audience wondering how in the world they were able to lose themselves so completely in the music? Check out the JBL EON1500 1x15 PA speaker. It's lightweight, sets up quickly, and packs an impressive wallop. Plus, it's covert-ops-black. Sweet!

Quick And Stealthy Setup
At only 38 pounds and sporting a convenient handle, the EON1500 is the ultimate "strike-anywhere" speaker. Sit them on the floor, or mount them quickly on a speaker pole with their built-in mounting socket. Based off of JBL's wildly popular EON self-powered speakers, the EON1500 employs the same crystal clear sound and rugged build in a package that foregoes the power amp for live sound engineers who prefer the flexibility of a passive enclosure. Speaking of flexible, these guys double easily as front of house (FOH) PA speakers or no-nonsense stage monitors. With its durable co-polymer housing and sturdy metal grille protecting the main woofer, these JBLs can withstand the abuses of the most raucous bands and still offer years of dedicated, gut-kicking service.

A Partner You Can Rely On
When it's mission critical, your equipment is either your best ally. . . or your weakest link. But you'll have a partner you can trust in the JBL EON1500. This little dynamo has been designed with a ton of safety features to keep it -- and your gigs -- running smoothly. With 225 Watts of headroom (and a peak handling of up to 900 watts), you'll be able to run your EONs loud and distortion-free, prolonging the life of the speaker elements. The titanium-diaphragm compression driver is liquid cooled, so it stays chill under pressure. For when the going gets really rough, the high frequency driver is protected by JBL's proprietary SonicGuard circuitry for discrete protection from overpowering.

Which Is All Well And Good, But How Does It Sound?
Just take a look at our customer feedback at the right. Do words like "awesome" and "excellent" do it for you? Then how about the name "JBL"? They've been in the speaker business since the late 1940s, when they introduced some of the first self-powered studio monitors. The JBL brand has graced some of the best professional sound equipment ever built, from movie theatre systems to world-class studio control rooms to arenas around the world, and you can bet that everything JBL stamps their logo on has to live up to a formidable history. Do the JBL EON1500 PA speakers live up to that legacy? In a word: absolutely.

So when its go time and your professional reputation is on the line, you'll want to go into battle with equipment that's been field-tested all over the world, and in the most extreme theaters of operation. The JBL EON1500 fits that bill nicely, and at zZounds, it won't cost you many bills to own.

Product Description

JBL EON1500
The EON 1500 combines legendary JBL EON sound quality with great transportability. Light weight (only 38 lbs!) and ergonomically designed handles (balanced to the box's center of gravity) have taken the grunt work out of setting up for the gig. And EON's unique multi-angle enclosure gives you flexibility -- use EON 1500 in these applications:

Front-of-house PA speaker -- floor-standing or pole mounted

Floor monitor with dual angles

For fixed installation EON 1500 includes integral threaded inserts that allow mounting using optional brackets. A wall mount bracket (BRK1) will position EON 1500 at 20 or 30 degrees when mounted to a wall. A fully adjustable bracket (BRK4-15) supports mounting from wall or ceiling at nearly any angle.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (109 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "JBL EON 1500 Best Buy - Best Value - Best Speaker"
Sound: Awesome sound quality with good bass and clear, warm midtones. Highs can get a bit trebly but can be EQ'd to suit your taste. Excellent for indoor and outdoor applications. Feature: Nice lightweight cabinet that stands up well to road warrior use. Has molded handle for easy transport and comes with mounting screws for optional flying bracket. Ease of Use: Doesn't get any easier than this one. I have a little 5'3" girl DJ who mounts these on speaker stands no problem. Quality: JBL says it all. Extreme quality and uniform from speaker to speaker. Value: This speaker is worth twice the price. Manufacturer Support: Best in the business! 5 Year no hassle guarantee. I had a 3 year old EON 1500 blow a woofer. Called JBL and they pointed me to a local authorized repair shop. New woofer installed and ready in 5 days. NO CHARGE! The Wow Factor: Sexy black looks great for anything from a backyard party to corporate events and weddings. Overall: I own 3 pairs. That should say something about the overall quality of this speaker. Reliable, great sounding, lightweight, durable, and nice looking. Nothing better. I am a mobile DJ and this is the only speaker I will ever use.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Value. Portability. Sound."
Sound: These speakers totally ROCK!!! I run a 5 system dj company and we used to lug around the 60lb MR-925's...ugh. Although these don't have quite the punch that a wood cabinet can have, I'll gladly sacrifice it for the weight and ease of setup. Plus the MR-925's were really, really bright...had to stuff foam into the horn just to tone them down. The EON's are nice and warm and balanced. Feature: One word: LIGHTWEIGHT Quality: Screws sometimes rattle. Need to tighten them occassionaly Value: Absolutely the best value on the market today. Manufacturer Support: Havent had any issues with them, and I already own 4 pair
