Achieve complete control over your live rig's tuning and performance, courtesy of the JBL PRX815W active PA speaker's onboard Wi-Fi technology and advanced DSP. And do it from anywhere in the venue using your tablet and the free PRX Connect app. Housed in a rugged all-wood cabinet, the PRX815W's lightweight yet powerful 1500-watt Class D amplifier employs JBL's acclaimed Differential Drive technology for efficient power handling. A redesigned input panel and universal power supply yield easy, reliable operation wherever you go. At Music Experience, we've run the JBL PRX815W through its paces both as a full-range PA speaker and as a floor monitor, and it's proven itself to be a solid, all-around performer.
The JBL PRX800 series is the most advanced PA in its class. Wi-Fi technology and sophisticated DSP give you complete control over system tuning and performance via the free PRX Connect app. An efficient 1500-watt class-D amplifier and patented JBL Differential Drive® technology provide best-in-class power and reduced weight. And the rugged all-wood cabinets feature a redesigned input panel and universal power supply for easy, reliable operation worldwide. Designed to deliver legendary JBL sound for bands, DJs and more, PRX800 represents the next generation in smart live sound reinforcement.
The 2-way 15” offers the perfect balance between size and performance. The PRX815 truly is an exception; it’s small, light weight, versatile and powerful with remote Wi-Fi control of onboard DSP EQ parameters. The performance and asymmetrical design make this a perfect choice for musicians, entertainers and DJ’s when portability is key, or when hung by the suspension points, an exceptional light-duty installation speaker. All PRX800 Series speakers were designed to excel in sound reinforcement where challenging audio environments and loud volumes are the norm. For applications requiring full bandwidth sound reproduction, the PRX815 delivers the optimum balance. For live music, recorded music playback and speech the user has the option of tailoring the EQ. A microphone can be directly connected to the speaker input for quick PA applications. Coupled with a PRX800 sub-woofer the system becomes an efficient, full-range sound system.
The PRX815 is comprised of 15” 275G Differential Drive® woofer, a 2408H-2 37.5 mm (1.5 in) annular polymer diaphragm, neodymium compression driver mounted to a 90° by 50° horn, all driven by 1500 watt Class-D power amplifier. Sophisticated DSP 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 PRX800 cabinets are built from 18 mm, strong, light-weight poplar plywood made structurally sound with tongue and groove joints. All PRX800 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 ¼ 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.
PRX800 is the first PA system in its class to feature complete wireless control via Wi-Fi. The PRX Connect mobile app for iOS and Android connects wirelessly to every speaker, offering full control over the powerful built-in DSP. Set up, configure and optimize the performance of your live sound system—faster than ever before. Walk around the venue during sound check and fine-tune your speakers to sound better as a system. Use the 8-band EQ, speaker delay, mute, gain and more to make sure your audience hears great sound from every corner of the room. It’s easy to configure shows offline and save presets. You can even find any connected speaker instantly with the useful Locator function.
With integrated 1500-watt Class-D power amplifiers, PRX800 is the most powerful, efficient system in its class. Patented JBL Differential Drive™ woofer technology reduces magnet mass while increasing power handling, making PRX800 a remarkably lightweight system capable of delivering clear, pristine audio at extraordinarily high volumes.
We designed the PRX800 series to perform flawlessly—even on the toughest tours. PRX800 speakers utilize the finest construction materials, including durable wooden cabinets, tour-proven DuraFlex™ finish and dent-resistant 16-gauge grilles. And comprehensive testing—including the famous JBL 100-hour power test—ensures reliability in any environment.
The PRX800 series combines technology from HARMAN’s industry-leading live sound brands to deliver unprecedented performance. The electronics and input panel are derived from top-tier Crown DSP and user interface technologies. dbx Type IV™ limiting eases the system back to a safe level when any frequency band is in limit, ensuring that the sound is clear, accurate and uncompressed—even at high volume.
The PRX800 series delivers versatility for any performance environment. A flexible interface and universal power supply give you complete control over your setup anywhere worldwide, with XLR, 1/4” and RCA inputs alongside multiple professional outputs. And because all JBL speakers feature the same legendary sound quality, PRX800 can be used with other JBL systems.
The world’s top artists and venues trust JBL to deliver incredible sound. That’s because over the past 70 years, we’ve invested more into R&D than any other speaker company. PRX800 features innovative components like a new variable-speed fan that activates only when needed for ultra-quiet operation. And the speakers are tuned for flat frequency response and smooth off-axis behaviour to ensure pristine sound throughout the venue.
PRX800 features embedded ioSYS technology that enables easier setup and control when used with the HARMAN Connected PA app and compatible products. Connected PA delivers seamless plug-and-play operation with a variety of HARMAN equipment and enables you to control your entire live sound system with one app. Products within the Connected PA system self-identify and retain presets for effortless setup, and setup wizards help you quickly optimize volume, configuration settings and sound quality. Current products with embedded ioSYS technology and HARMAN Connected PA compatibility include the Soundcraft Ui-series mixers, JBL PRX800 loudspeakers, dbx Di1 direct boxes, and AKG P5i microphones and the MDAi dynamic microphone adapter.
Your live sound system isn’t complete without portable speaker bags and dependable high-quality stands for quick, reliable setup. JBL offers durable speaker bags by Gator, and a variety of gas-assist and manual-adjust speaker stands built to seamlessly match your PRX800 system and provide a reliable foundation for your next gig, event or tour.
