The JBL PRX412M powered loudspeaker kicks off JBL's fantastic line of PRX400 powered speakers. It's a true 2-way powered speaker, with a custom-designed JBL MB112-8 305mm (12-inch) woofer holding down the low end. Its highs sing from the JBL 2414H-C 1.5-inch polymer diaphragm compression driver. The PRX412M handles 300 watts of continuous power and 1200 watts peak, with a 126 dB maximum SPL. It has a frequency range of 50 Hz - 20 kHz, and a response of 62 Hz - 19 kHz. At this price point, the JBL PRX412Ms make excellent powered on-stage monitors or utility speakers.
Simple and Versatile I/O
JBL PRX412M powered loudspeakers come equipped with parallel Neutrik Speakon combo inputs that handle both Speakon NL-2 and 1/4" sources.
Integrated SonicGuard Technology Keeps Speakers Healthy
The PRX400 speakers come with integrated SonicGuard technology that does an excellent job of protecting the HF driver from inadvertent overpowering. In such a situation, an internal attenuator matches the higher sensitivity of the high-frequency driver to the lower sensitivity of the low-frequency driver, thus balancing the HF and LF output. When the input signal increases, more current passes through, causing certain elements to increase in temperature. The growing resistance inversely effects a reduction of the signal going into the HF driver, protecting it from overload. When the elements cool, normal system operation is restored.
Finely Constructed and Rock-Solid Wooden Cabinets
The tops of all PRX400 enclosures are constructed from with 25 mm sheets of poplar plywood that are uniquely strong given their light weight. The sides are made from 18 mm birch sheets, ensuring a cabinet with a great natural throw. They have absolutely no boxy or buzzy cross-resonance, even when you're pushing the volume all the way. The deep-cup tongue and groove joints ensure a cabinet that will endure the rigors of transport. The cabinets are finished in JBL's own obsidian DuraFlex finish, while the speakers inside are protected with a dent-and-scratch-resistant 16 gauge steel. The M10 suspension points, rated to hold up to 1000 pounds, are constructed from 14 gauge steel.
Easy to Set Up in Full-Range or Monitor Situations
JBL's PRX400 series speakers include a single 35 mm pole socket with dual mounting angles that allow the speaker to be mounted vertically, or angled 10 degrees downward to better cover the audience. The cabinets are also constructed in a trapezoidal shape that makes them reliable and sturdy floor monitors. The ergonomic handles are made from lightweight glass-filled nylon, and feel great in the hands when you have to schlep them around.
