Product Description

For every musician, DJ, venue and audio/video provider, high-performance self-powered speaker systems offer a degree of simplicity unmatched by traditional amp and speaker PA systems. Not only are all components matched right out of the box, but they are optimized for maximum reliability. By considering every element in each system and its contribution to the final application PRX500 redefines high performance portable PA. Through design, PRX500 delivers the power, performance and simplicity you need in a package that's been designed to move.

The PRX535 offers a high level of performance. By design, a 3-way configuration, it is the most accurate in the PRX500 Series. With a horn loaded midrange, pattern control is maintained to a much lower frequency resulting in exceptional clarity and uniform sonic projection over the defined coverage area. Ideally suited to applications where the program material, live or prerecorded has many subtle nuances that is critical to the performance. As with all the full-range PRX500 Series systems two EQ selections can be used to optimize the system for the program material and/or environment. The input section also accommodates either Line or Mic/Instrument level inputs.

Features:

- Differential Drive(R) woofer
- Horn loaded mid range for sonic accuracy and enhanced pattern control
- 1.5 in. annual polymer diaphragm compression driver
- Class-D, Crown(R) digital amplifier: lightweight, compact, multi channel, heritage
- DSP input section with crossover, dynamic limiting, component optimization, selectable system EQ
- Professional XLR line and 1/4 in. Mic/Instrument inputs, with loop through
- Illuminated logo for clear Power-On status
- Integrated pole mount socket
- DuraFlex(TM) coated plywood construction
- Polypropylene end-caps enhance durability
- Wrap around heavy duty steel grille provides protection without obstructing performance.
- Large die-cast aluminum handle bar with a fine tuned ergonomic rubber grip for maximum comfort

The PRX535 is a self-powered, lightweight 3-way loudspeaker system capable of delivering a very high level of performance, both in SPL and sonic accuracy. The PRX535 is comprised of a 380 mm (15 in) 265F Differential Drive(R) woofer, a 165 mm (6.5 in) 195H horn-loaded 90 degree by 50 degree mid-range and a 2408H 37.5 mm (1.5 in) annular polymer diaphragm, neodymium compression driver mounted to a 90 degree by 50 degree horn, all driven by a multi-channel Crown International Class-D digital power amplifier. A propriety DSP chip is at the core of a fully featured input section, providing user selectable system EQ, protection, input sensitivity selection, crossover functionality, dynamic limiting and discrete component optimization.

The enclosure is constructed of quality plywood and coated in JBL's rugged DuraFlex(TM) finish. Durable polypropylene end-caps add extra protection for the cabinet. An integrated pole mount on the bottom endcap enables easy deployment. The CNC-machined steel grille wraps around the sides of the enclosure so there are no protruding lips on the front of the box to create acoustical interference. The grille is also lined with an acoustically transparent foam to provide additional driver protection.

The amplifier input panel offers XLR or 3/4 inch jack compatibility and a sensitivity switch provides extra flexibility, making it possible to connect literally any sound source without using a mixer. Signal present and overload lights indicate the system status and assist in setting the optimum level, via the level control knob.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (22 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "PRX535s are like Peanut butter and Jelly (Crown and JBL)"
Sound: I've recently bought a pair of the 535s and a matching pair of powered subs. The sound quality without enhancement devices is superb. I've played pro some years back and am now getting that urge to rock again, tried to move a QSC 3X and through my back out., thank you Crown and JBL. The three channel crown is just pro quality, bar none. Feature: Features are standard on this until you hit the EQ button and then the magic happens. How do they do what they do? The connectors are simple mic cords hook ups (xlr). I couldn't hook it up wrong. The handles are strategically placed so that when you pick them up you don't fall over. Ease of Use: Plug in and dream of rock stardom, of course you need to bring your own talent. My only complaint is that matching it with the subs there is no information. The store we bought these from recommends an additional pair of subs to go with these (of course he would an extra 2grand or so in his pocket). But was he telling the truth? Seems to me when we hooked it all up we had to back of the uppers about half so the subs could catch up. Quality: JBL and Crown teaming up are you kidding!!!!!!! It's like meat and potatoes, carrots and peas, peanut butter and jelly how could you go wrong? After my younger rock days I went back and got my engineering degree and am a current quality manager for the US based earth moving company. One of the CEO band boys, not nearly as good as I used to be but the equipment is a dam sight better. Value: These are pricy and it is hard to describe the quality, workmanship, engineering to someone that has not used ordinary gear. But the money you spend for these things is something that young upstarts might avoid. Manufacturer Support: Not had to use it yet. The Wow Factor: Depends on the person I guess, some people like the fuss of power amp racks, cords every where, crossovers that you sometimes miss the frequency on, not me. This system is clean, simple, and as our new guitar player put it, beautiful. The paired 18s (PRX518s) and uppers (PRX535s) look like someone new what they were doing. Overall: I expect to be to be satisfied with this system for a long time and will probably never have a different system. I hope we don't wear the system out, if we do, we'll have a good time doing it. I compared this system with the QSCs and found the sound and price comparable, the big differences is the extra 42 pounds the QSCs sport. Some may say they are louder and beefier, but I could not tell that in store where I test drove them side by side (Guitar Center Chicago).
Style of Music: Have played every thing from "Gang of Four" to Hank Williams.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Simply the best"
Sound: Simply put this system is complete with a catch. IF you match it with the 518 subs be prepared use the 535s at half volume. Now for me that is ok our group won't blow your doors off. I have talked to everyone at crown/JBL/Dannon they all say the same thing, buy another pair of subs. That is easy for them to say. The subs are underpowered compared to the tops. I should have known the 1 to 4 ratio is not present here, the sub actually needs to be about 3 times more powerful. After talking to California JBL, they seem to want to lead me away from talking that they two were to be bought together. In any case the accuracy of the tops will be beaten by no one. Feature: Who wants accessories when setting up a PA, usually you get one of two things, lots of headaches setting up a big PA system. Or, you get too small of a PA that really won't cover the place like you want. This system does not need anything between it and the board. I in fact went a bought a driverack and after listening to the DR in and out, I took it back to the store. The auto EQ in the speakers mystifies me in a good way. Be careful of the line in and out button, seems like overkill, but thanks for the protection. The selection of components is a match made in Heaven, I've been a rocker for way too long to pass up the combo of Crown and JBL, it's like Bogie and Bacall. Ease of Use: When using the 535s you don't really need to know what you are doing. The systems is so simple that it makes you forget Crossovers, Racks, power Amps, chords, connectors, and my favorite winding chords. After 4 hours of rockin your *** off the most fun is winding chords. This system would be easy to use with other speakers, using the back panel cross over options lets you daisy chain other speaker brands or send to another power amp. Quality: Being a quality manager I know a little about quality, the thing to remember that if you get your speakers and they don't work, then chances are you have bought something from a company that does not have a quality system, in my case, the speakers are perfect!!! Value: Value, well you get what you pay for. I have a pair of Bheringer monitors, reasonable quality but light years away from the the likes of Crown and JBL. THey are actually cheaper than Mackie, and about the same as QSC. Peavey is cheaper but does not sound as good, I own many Peavey products so I know. Manufacturer Support: Support is a little dicey, I tend not only read the PDf files on my equipment, if fact I knew way more than the hot line help about my issue with the subs not matching the uppers. But that was my fault I should have looked at the power output of each unit, and done the math myself. I think they need to use real sound engineers to talk to the folks, but head count these days is more of wishful thinking. The Wow Factor: I would love to have a bank of 8 535s on each side of the stage, that would eliminate the need for any lower end help. At low to mid volumes you don't need it. Sex appeal, I play with some very experienced musicians and they all want to take them home with them. This is piece of gear I will never be without. Overall: The 535s I would replace if something happened to them. The 518s I may replace with a design of my own, of course it would carry a bit more power. Right now the tops are all I need for what I am doing solo with my Acoustic only, bit of overkill but I love these two speakers making me sound the best I can.
