Product Description

Empowering Music Professionals
In developing the MPro line, JBL looked at the way music professionals are using live sound speakers today. Many MPro attributes such as extended frequency response, compact size, and easy handling are a direct result. The MPro 200 Series offers unique, professional appearance, superb acoustical performance, cutting edge configurations, buyer confidence that goes with the JBL brand Carpet covered, plywood enclosures, and 250 watt power ratings (500 watts for dual woofer models). MPro 200 Series models are covered in the highest grade, 12 oz. carpet. Note that the edges of the carpet on all 2-way models are captured by the joint detail. This means you won't see the carpet seams and the carpet won't peel back.

Cabinet Construction
All MPro models are constructed of 7-ply, 18mm plywood — not lower cost "engineered wood" products. Plywood construction assures a tough enclosure and robust joints that hold together through a tough life on the road. Carefully fitted rabbet joints and tongue-and-groove construction techniques are used throughout the line. State-of-the-art adhesives are used for glue joints that are actually far stronger than the plywood.

Laminar Flow Baffle
Used on all 2-way models, the Laminar Flow Baffle integrates horn, ports, baffle, and woofer mounting. The term "Laminar Flow" is used by aerospace engineers to describe the smooth flow of air over a surface — the opposite of turbulent flow. In aircraft design, turbulence produces unwanted drag and unpredictable handling. In a speaker system, turbulence and diffraction create distortion and undesirable phase cancellations. The smooth, rounded contours of the baffle and seamless one-piece structure reduce the effects of turbulence and diffraction. The result is lower distortion and smoother frequency response.

Laminar Flow Baffle Benefits
Smooth ports with rounded edges reduce distortion caused by turbulence.

Concave shape and recessed woofer mounting reduce diffraction effects that harm frequency response.

Molded baffle allows for large horn mouth without growing the size of the system. The result is improved performance in the critical mid-range.

The Laminar Flow Baffle is constructed of SMC (Sheet Molding Compound). A tough, polymer used extensively in the auto industry for body panels and other parts.

Hardware
Only the most rugged hardware is used on MPro products.

Large, ergonomically positioned steel handles

16-gauge, hexagonally perforated steel grills

Cast aluminum pole mount sockets (MP418 models use steel cup)

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (87 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Same sounds you're making, only much, much louder. Exactly what it should be."
Sound: Extremely clear! Very low distortion at levels near the threshold of pain. They even sound great at low levels. Others have said here that subwoofers should be used with these cabs in larger venues. All I can add is that it certainly seems to reproduce bass, kick drums, and other low frequencies very well in smaller venues. These cabs are pretty efficient, not needing a great deal of power to produce high levels. Vocals sound soooo good through these. Feature: Hardware is well thought out. Speakon connectors are really nice. Quality: Very well built. Will take plenty of road use. Value: The MP225 is not inexpensive. They do compare very well to Mackie and Peavey models that are a bit more expensive. This is a very good value in a high end speaker. Manufacturer Support: Too early to give an opinion, but JBL has a pretty good reputation. Professional sound is a big part of their business. The Wow Factor: If you're into black monoliths, this is your speaker. With some light on the front of the cabinets, its fun to see those big ol' JBL 15s lurking in there. Overall: Same sounds you're making, only much, much louder. Exactly what it should be. Nothing added, nothing lost.
Style of Music: Rock, Blues

"Big bang for the buck."
Sound: They are clean and crisp. I would suggest using the 418s m-pro subwoofer cabinet with these speakers for larger rooms. Feature: They are not hard to handle and are well balanced when using the handles. Quality: Well built cabs. Good hardware and trim. They will take the beating of being on the road if need be.they are great. Value: JBL speaks for itself Manufacturer Support: I have used JBL on and off for the last 35 years. Never had a problem of any kind. Use them not abuse them. Need good power amps that will not clip or distort when using them and you will not have a problem. The Wow Factor: They look and sound like a professional sound cabint should. Clean and clear with good seperation. Overall: Jbl is one of the top of the line cabinets. They make middle of the road products to compete withe the other manufactures.When you order there upper line models they are the best for the money.
Style of Music: Classic Rock, Funk and Blues.
