"Awesome, Clear Sound"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The JBL EON612 Powered Speakers were first used for three days as PA Speakers (speech) suspended from the trusses. The sound: Awesome!!!! Praised by everyone in attendance! They will usually be set up as PA speakers in a meeting room.
Out of box: One speaker worked exactly as expected. One speaker was useless. It buzzed at volume anywhere close enough to be useable. We tried doing a factory reset multiple times per JBL manual instructions and as seen on a YouTube video. Nothing ever changed until using the EON Connect app to adjust the speaker. It has worked perfectly since.
Summary: Highly recommended with the understanding the user can use the EON Connect app. These speakers are so good I give 5 stars for every issue even with the out-of-box problem we encountered.
Sound is great for speech (our main use) in an arena and small meeting room.
Most useful: Ability to control the speakers with Bluetooth devices.
Least useful: Inability to input via Bluetooth.
Ease of Use
Extremely easy to get great sound IF the EON Connect app is used.
Extremely well made. We used straps to suspend one speaker vertical and the other horizontal. The speakers will be mounted on the stands most of the time.
Good value, especially when getting the package that includes two speakers, two JBL stands and two JBL speaker bags. The stands are really sturdy and easy to use. The bags fit the speakers perfectly and the side compartment holds the power cord plus a 50 foot extension cord.
The Wow Factor
Speech use only: Wow! Wow! Wow! The clarity of the voices was exceptional. We had multiple people on the mic, some with good mic technique and others that acted as if the were talking to a snake.
Used for a PA system, usually not for music.
PA for a small inside arena and a meeting room. They did sound good when a lady sang for speaker set-up.
