Don't bother with inferior speaker designs; JBL PRX has the power, the clarity and a name that's trusted.

Features

- 1000 Watt Class-D, Crown amplifier with 134db peak SPL
- Dual purpose enclosure for both front-of house and floor monitor applications
- Optimized EQ for monitor for front-of-house applications
- 12 inch Differential Drive dual voice-coil and magnetic gap, neodymium woofer
- 1.5 inch annular polymer diaphragm, neodymium, compression driver
- DSP input section, crossover and dynamic limiting
- Component optimization and selectable system EQ
- Professional XLR line and 1/4 inch Mic/Instrument inputs, with loop through
- Eight M10 fly points for horizontal or vertical suspension
- One M10 pull-back point
- Dual-angle pole mount socket

Applications

The PRX612M is comprised of a 305 mm (12 inch) 265F Differential Drive woofer, a 2408H-1, 37.5 mm (1.5 inch) annular polymer diaphragm, neodymium compression driver mounted to a 90 by 50 degree horn, all driven by 1000 watt (dual 500 watt) Crown 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, cross-over functionality, dynamic limiting and discrete component optimization.

All PRX600 cabinets are built from a combination of 25mm (on the top and bottom for added rigidity) and 18mm, strong, light-weight poplar plywood made structurally sound with tongue and groove joints. All PRX600 Series cabinets are protected by JBL's tour proven DuraFlex finish. Grilles are made from dent-resistant 16 gauge steel and handles are made from light-weight glass-filled nylon for added strength and durability. All M10 suspension points are constructed from 14 gauge steel and have been tested with a yield-strength of 1000 lbs. each.

The amplifier input panel offers XLR or 1/4 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 limiter 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. "Really amazing quality"
Overall: I ordered this with Zzounds on Friday afternoon, and Saturday I was already trying it out! I love how quick you guys ship your products. Now for the speaker part, First thing I noticed was how clear the sounds is, just by hooking up my iPhone and playing some jazz music. I was amazed at the quality, this speaker WILL get pretty LOUD, I am definitely more than satisfied with it. Very durable and not too heavy at all.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "In Hand Review - PRX612M vs. SRM450"
Sound: When you compare the volume and sound quality to an SRM450, the Mackie takes the cake. However - these speakers are gorgeous and aesthetics can be VERY important. I would rate these a 10 for appearance, while the Mackies are more like a 6. The sound for the JBL is an 8, while I would rate the Mackies a 9. As with most JBLs I've worked with - you need to heavily decrease the mids in order to get the best sound. Keep that in mind if you pick up a pair of these puppies. The highs are amazing on these speakers, but the 12" woofer can't beat a 15" woofer. So basically - no miracles here on the low end. Feature: Only one complaint - they put the mic/line switch right next to the gain. You could easily hit it by accident. No EQ but that is not important to me. Ease of Use: Plug it in, decrease the mids, kick up the highs, and play any genre of recorded music. Quality: This is a very solid box. It looks solid and feels solid. However, I did notice that the amp gets hot. Sounds normal I know - but I run other Class D speakers for some gigs and they run ice cold all night. Value: Wonderful and beautiful. Not incredibly expensive. But I'm not sure if these are really worth $700 each. The Wow Factor: Gorgeous speaker. Wish they made it without the monitor wedge design. It looks awkward in some settings.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
