HARMAN’s JBL Professional Introduces JRX200 Series Portable Passive Loudspeakers At Prolight + Sound 2013

FRANKFURT, Germany – At Prolight + Sound 2013, HARMAN’s JBL Professional is introducing its JRX200 Series portable passive PA loudspeakers, upgraded from the previous JRX100 Series and featuring an improved high-performance compression driver, an updated, more professional appearance and additional enhancements. The four models in the new JRX200 lineup include the JRX212 12-inch 2-way loudspeaker/stage monitor, JRX215 15-inch 2-way speaker, JRX225 dual-15-inch 2-way speaker and JRX218S 18-inch compact subwoofer.

“JBL’s JRX100 Series passive portable PA speakers have established themselves as the standard worldwide, heard in countless indoor and outdoor stages, clubs, events and venues,” said Andy Flint, Senior Manager, Portable PA Marketing. “With the introduction of the JRX200 Series, these industry-standard speakers are now even better, offering improved sound quality and durability, for professional-level performance at an entry-level price point.”

Every JRX200 Series loudspeaker (except the JRX218S subwoofer) now incorporates the JBL 2414H-C 1-inch polymer diaphragm compression driver, which offers better high-frequency performance and improved reliability. The 2414H-C driver is mated to JBL’s Progressive Transition™ waveguide, which provides constant beamwidth and directivity across a best-in-class 90° horizontal/50° vertical coverage pattern, along with smoother frequency response and a more seamless blend with the woofer.

The JRX200 Series loudspeakers feature a sleek, professional appearance highlighted by a new grille design and upgraded logo, giving the loudspeakers a look and feel on par with JBL’s stylish STX and PRX Series portable PA loudspeakers. In addition, the JRX200 enclosures feature a dual-angle 36mm pole socket for easy setup (JRX212 and JRX215), all-steel handles and a perforated steel grille. The JRX218S subwoofer includes a 36mm pole mount receptacle to facilitate its use as a base for another JRX200 model or for a mid-high speaker cabinet.

All JRX200 Series loudspeakers offer high sensitivity (from 98dB to 100dB SPL), enabling them to be driven to higher volume levels even with lower-powered amplifiers. JRX200 models include a host of additional performance features like SonicGuard™ high-frequency driver protection (except the JRX218S) and premium-grade crossover components and all JRX200 designs were subjected to JBL’s 100-hour torture test to ensure long-term reliability.
