Product Description

The JBL EON 315 is a highly versatile sound reinforcement solution that suits the needs of all types of performers. Featuring a high-quality Class-D amplifier that delivers a continuous 280 watts of power, a combination XLR and 1/4-inch input, XLR slave output for daisy chaining several EONs together, and pre-engineered EQ settings to calibrate the speaker's response to its surroundings, the JBL EON 315 is a self-contained PA system that is portable, flexible, and always ready to rock.

High-Quality Power Amp and Speaker Design

The JBL EON 315 features the latest Class-D amplifier technology. Delivering a whopping 280 watts of continuous power, the JBL EON 315 packs a serious sonic punch. Of course this power is useless without a front-end design that delivers accurate and evenly dispersed sound. Delivering the bulk of this thunderous sound is a 15-inch woofer with a 2.5-inch center voice coil to delivers tight, distortion-free low-end down to a chest-pounding 50 Hz. The Ferro-fluid-cooled high-frequency driver has a 100 x 60-degree asymmetrical waveguide design to help your speaker cover a wide angle, ensuring that the entire audience will catch every nuance of your performance. Plus, this speaker comes with built-in EQ settings: If you're reinforcing a live performance, engage the "flat" setting, or if you're playing back prerecorded music, try the "boost" EQ setting for increased energy in the highs and lows. The "cut" setting rolls off bass below 120 Hz -- useful if you're running a separate subwoofer.

Plug in a Mic-Level or Line-Level Input

Each JBL EON 315 has one combination XLR and 1/4-inch balanced input jack, with selectable gain sensitivity you can set to accommodate the source you're plugging in. Have you ever connected an MP3 player to a powered speaker, only to find that the sound is distorted? Distortion caused by driving the preamp too hot is often unavoidable with high-output consumer audio gear, but the JBL EON 315 solves this problem by allowing you to set the sensitivity of the preamp to accommodate the hot output of an MP3 player. Just press the Mic/Line button to calibrate the 315's input sensitivity to suit a passive mixer, or a dynamic microphone. The Signal indicator LED lights up to show that a signal is present, and the Limit light will illuminate if the incoming signal is hot enough to engage the 315's built-in limiter.

Road-Worthy Build Quality

Before any EON 315 can leave the factory, it has to endure JBL's grueling 100-hour "torture test." This ensures that every EON 315 is capable of handing just about any kind of abuse. The built-in active and passive protection components ensure that the signal circuitry is protected, while the limiter ensures that your signal will never distort the speaker, greatly extending the life of this live sound powerhouse. The rugged chassis is made of a hardened composite shell, and provides a sturdy, and secure enclosure for the internal components. The full-metal grille with a protective backing also ensures that nothing will ever come in contact with the sensitive woofer material.

Extremely Portable

When you're a one-man road crew and performer, you need your gear to be simple to use. This means that loading in, setting up, rocking out, and packing up again should be as easy as possible -- after all, you've got to sign autographs while packing up the van, right? JBL implemented some key design features to help out artists and engineers alike. They took a look at the design of the previous EON and decided that the excess weight needed to be shed. The JBL EON 315 comes in at a light 35 pounds with three full-sized handles and a fourth grip point, allowing the speaker to be carried at any angle with ease. You can carry it, set it up, and tear it down without ever struggling for a good grip.

Highly Versatile

If you are a gigging musician, you know that a gig can take place just about anywhere. The JBL EON 315 was built with flexibility and versatility in mind. The EON 315 can be set up in a forward, crowd-facing position for main PA applications. However, when a stage monitor is needed, it can be placed on its horizontal axis, instantly turning it into a stage monitor. If you show up to a gig, and there's already a solid PA in place, there is no need to leave your EON 315 by the wayside -- simply bring it on stage with you, place it on its side and instantly have a professional grade monitor feeding you clear and pristine sound. And for the venue owner, the EON 315 has standard M10 suspension points, so your EON 315 can fly with ease in your venue. With the XLR slave output, daisy-chaining a gang of 315s is as easy as plugging in a mic cable.

Features:

- 280-watt Class-D digital power amplifier
- Weighs only 35 lbs.
- Three full-sized handles, and a fourth grip point
- 15" low- and mid-frequency woofer
- 1" JBL neodymium compression driver

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Exceed my expectations"
Overall: I purchased 2 JBL EON 315's. They were delivered with one of the handles broken. A quick call to JBL, and 2 new handles were in route (1 to fix the broken one, and 1 spare at JBL's suggestion). Excellent prooduct. I intended to buy a sub to pair with them to play music at High School football games, no need. The deep base astonished me. Great buying experience, great product.
Style of Music: All over the place based on mood.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Superior quality looks and sound, ultra-light weight, reasonable price."
Sound: Sounds pure, clean and loud. I bought it for electronic drums, but it sounds great with recorded music too. Not overly bassy like a sub-woofered system, and a good flat full-rounded clear sound without excess noisy middles. Just right for all genres. Clean top and good full clean bass. Very hi-fi in character. Feature: All in one, lightweight, can be an angled monitor or a P.A. Ease of Use: Cannot find the alleged MIC/LINE switch, only a graphic of one, but I'm probably just stupid. Quality: Looks and feels high quality, despite it's ultra-light weight. But I would not risk handling it carelessly on purpose. Value: Costs a little bit more than some less highly respected alternatives. From what I hear other drummers saying it's the best one to choose. Manufacturer Support: It's new and no JBL support has been needed, except I just emailed JBL to ask about the switch I cannot see. But this is where I have to mention Zzounds. I bought a "warehouse resealed" one and it came with the box all smashed and inside one of the JBL's side handles was shattered and the pieces were inside the box. Zzounds emailed me a return label and as soon as it was picked up by UPS, they shipped me a brand new unit at no extra charge. The new one, I should add, featured an outer carton around the inner retail box, and arrived in perfect condition. So Zzounds got the lower price for a resealed unit, gave me free shipping twice plus paid for return shipping, and I have a new one, just a week after the damaged one arrived. This is why I always look at Zzounds first for any musical equipment. They know how to do business the right way. The Wow Factor: Looks amazing and is remarkably light-weight. Overall: This will do fine. I don't expect to have to supply a P.A. for a large venue.
Style of Music: jazz fusion
