With 1000 watts and a rugged enclosure, the JBL PRX615M is a versatile powered speaker with enough oomph for any occasion. Perfect as mains for small and mid-sized venues and portable enough for the road, the PRX615M is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a big sound in a manageable package. For larger systems, the PRX615M serves as an outstanding floor monitor, and like the rest of the PRX600 series, has been designed by JBL to maximize sound quality and efficiency with an array of new features and advanced specifications. With all of this in a single lightweight enclosure, the JBL PRX615M strikes an amazing balance between performance and portability.

True Versatility in a Powerful Speaker

The PRX615M packs serious power with ample frequency range for use as mains in small and mid-sized venues. Weighing just 43.5 lbs each and built to withstand the pressure of the road, the PRX615M is ideal for mobile DJs and gigging performers who need portable gear they can trust. The monitor mode alters the frequency characteristics to better match the needs of on-stage monitoring, and the enclosure's asymmetrical design allows the PRX615M to be flipped on its side as a wedge. The combo XLR 1/4" input can accept direct signals from instruments and mics, and the loop through output allows for easy integration into a daisy-chain or any other multi-speaker system. With a standard pole-socket and eight M10 suspension points, the PRX615M can find a home in virtually any live sound set-up.

The JBL PRX 600 Series

The JBL PRX 600 series represents the latest in JBL's constant innovation in the world of powered PA. Built to overcome common obstacles of sound reinforcement, the PRX600 series uses efficient Class D amplifier technology from Crown, limiter and crossover circuitry from DBX, and JBL's own signature drivers to create unparalleled sound quality and performance. All PRX 600 models are built and tested for durability with dense plywood construction and JBL's DuraFlex finish. With four speaker and two sub-woofer models to choose from, the JBL PRX600 series provides limitless options for outstanding powered PA configurations.

Features:

- 1000 watts of Crown power through a 15" Differential Drive dual voice coil and magnetic gap, neodymium woofer and a 1.5" annular polymer diaphragm, neodymium magnet compression driver.
- Selectable frequency modes with 45 Hz - 19 kHz range for mains and 48 Hz - 20 kHz for monitors.
- Combination XLR-1/4" inputs to accept virtually any signal source.
- Loop through output for easy integration into any other multi-speaker system.
- 8 M10 Suspension points and 1 pullback point for installation and a 36 mm dual-angle socket for pole mounting.
- 43.5 lbs total weight with rubber gripped handlebar for real portability.
- Duraflex finish with 18 mm plywood construction for an enclosure to withstand the pressures of the road.

Like the rest of the JBL PRX600 series, the PRX615M delivers the power you need in a reliable and rugged speaker. With an array of features making this one of the most versatile powered speakers on the market, the PRX615M can find a home as monitor or a main, on the road or permanently installed. For true versatility and unquestioned quality, the JBL PRX615M is an excellent choice for your next powered PA speaker. zZounds is an authorized dealer of JBL products.

Applications
For applications requiring full bandwidth sound reproduction, the PRX615M delivers the optimum balance. For live music, recorded music playback and speech the user has the option of tailoring the EQ, 'flat' for speech intelligibility, and 'boost' for enhanced bass and crisp highs in recorded music playback. A microphone can be directly connected to the speaker input for quick PA applications. Coupled with a PRX600 sub-woofer the system becomes an efficient, full-range sound system.

The PRX615M is comprised of a 380 mm (15 inch) 265F Differential Drive dual voice-coil and magnetic gap, neodymium 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 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 overload lights indicate the system status and assist in setting the optimum level, via the level control knob.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (47 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Fit for any test!"
Sound: The sound quality is pretty amazing. clear through the whole frequency range. Outstanding for vocals. As well as just D'Jing. When compared in a side by side with the k12 I though that these speakers were much clearer and more defined where as the k12's seemed warmer even a little muddier than these. These are well built speakers. The bass response is pretty amazing also and for smaller gigs or dj events would work perfect by themselves. If the industry standard is the k12's right now I feel like these take it for the new standard at this price point. I didnt get a chance to hear the ELX's, but then again I don't think I needed to. Feature: I agree with others the buttons on back could have some more seperation. I am barely concerned about the fan unit these things lack. Honestly if I am running them hard enough where they thermal. I should probably be running bigger speakers. I run my pair turned to 12 o clock on the rear of the speaker and I have plenty of head room on my board. Pretty much everything sounds good out of them. Ease of Use: Plug them into a board and go. Pretty easy to get great quality sound with them. I hope to Use them as side fill wedges someday. For now the make great mains and sit nicely over my subs. These will easily fill up almost all the bars I would play around town. Quality: I really like the look. And the feel of these speakers is pretty amazing. Wood cabinets are the way to go. Value: I feel the price is right. At 800 a speaker I feel they are well worth it. The EV's may be cheaper and sound quality may be very similar to these but, I subscribe to the idea that sometimes if you spend a little more that the thing will be a little more well built and last you down the road. I did a lot of research like days before I tested these against competitors. I was skeptical at first because I have heard some bad jbl stuff but these. Really do raise the bar. Manufacturer Support: Only based on the fact that I haven't had to use them yet. This may slide down if I ever do. I take pretty care of my stuff though so, I don't anticipate needing jbl and it seems to be well built. The Wow Factor: I bought them. Pretty easy decision Overall: I can see these as my main speakers for awhile and eventually becoming great side fill wedges when I upgrade my mains to 3 ways. I will always use these for small gigs or small dj gigs where 3 way speakers aren't necessary. I am a gigging musician, sound man, dj, and karaoke dj. I get nothing but compliments and praise on the sound reproduction of these speakers. These replaced my first sound system mains and they run circles around the competition.
Style of Music: All styles. I have to be knowledgable in everything

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Awesome sound thats slightly deafening!"
Sound: This speaker has such a clarity compared to other products I am used to. This speaker reacts quickly (and clearly no less) when I ask it to and seemingly has no end in sight for peak output. I'm sure the massive headroom is due to the on board Crown 1kw amplifier. Feature: I haven't used the onboard options much but fiddling with the Main/Monitor option takes quite a bit of bass out of the system when in monitor mode which seems right for what it would be doing. Ease of Use: These speakers are incredibly easy to use, just plug and go. The only thing that may need adjusted is the gain knob/mic line function on the back of the unit if it is set too high. Quality: I haven't had these long but they seem to be built into their own road case, they appear to be incredibly durable and have a textured surface which resists abrasion better than other smooth surfaces. Value: After attempting an audio range/clarity test (and receiving some slight temporary hearing loss) I soon discovered I need a bigger testing area though for the testing I could do I give these a rating of Worth Every Penny! Manufacturer Support: I have not had to interact with the manufacturer though I bought these speakers based on JBL's quality and survivability so I can only imagine they are right up there with the Maytag man. The Wow Factor: The JBL name was a lot of my interest in the product. The product itself looks aesthetically pleasing and doesn't take up a lot of room for its performance. This system being powered means I carry less gear to each event which saves me money as well. Overall: These speakers have so much headroom in a 350 seat rock auditorium that upon testing them I couldn't peak them out without needing earplugs at 90ft from the speakers.
Style of Music: Rock/Alt Rock, Pop, Techno,
