ANAHEIM, California – At Winter NAMM 2013, HARMAN’s JBL Professional is introducing white versions of its popular PRX415M and PRX412M passive portable loudspeakers. The new 15-inch PRX415M-WH and 12-inch PRX412M-WH offers the same performance and capabilities as the PRX412M and PRX415M, in a sleek white finish that offers systems designers with another loudspeaker option to discreetly fit into various environments that require white loudspeaker systems.
“The PRX400 Series has been a tremendous success for end-users and sound contractors who require exceptional sound and rugged reliability in a passive loudspeaker format,” said Andy Flint, Senior Manager, Portable PA Marketing, Loudspeaker Group. “In addition to our commitment to providing market-leading audio performance, the PRX415M-WH and PRX412M-WH demonstrate our commitment to providing a variety of aesthetic options for audio applications.”
The PRX415M-WH and PRX412M-WH can be used as either floor monitors or for overhead suspension in a permanent installation application where white enclosures are desirable. As with all PRX400 Series loudspeakers, they are designed to work hand in hand with Crown Audio’s powerful and innovative XTi2 Series amplifiers. Crown XTi2 amplifiers incorporate enhanced pre-set performance tunings for PRX400 Series loudspeakers, including crossover points for a sat/subwoofer setup, and optimized parametric filter that bring out the full potential of PRX400 Series loudspeakers. JBL PRX400 tunings are also available in the dbx DriveRack® PA+ signal processor/complete loudspeaker management system.
The PRX415M-WH and PRX412M-WH utilize extremely high-quality, tour-tested drivers and components to deliver clear, detailed and dynamic sound for bands, DJs, nightclubs, schools, houses of worship or other professional touring and installed sound applications. They feature Neutrik® SpeakON combination connectors and are built from lightweight, yet extremely tough 18mm birch/poplar multi-laminate hardwood covered in JBL’s resilient DuraFlex™ covering. They also feature rugged 16 gauge steel grilles with an acoustically transparent white cloth backing.
The PRX415M-WH and PRX412M-WH incorporate twelve M-10 suspension points and hardened steel eyebolts for safe hanging in light-duty installations. In common with all JBL Professional products, the PRX415M-WH and PRX412M-WH loudspeakers have survived JBL’s 100-hour power test, in which they are submitted to 100 hours of continuous, high-level input. The speakers also go through a barrage of unforgiving environmental and strength tests including harsh temperatures and humidity, ensuring they will perform perfectly anywhere. They also incorporate JBL’s Sonic Guard speaker protection circuit that automatically attenuates the signal going into the high-frequency section of the speaker if too much input signal is detected, and restores normal operation when the overload condition passes.
