Further extending the versatility of its workhorse AE (Application Engineered) Series, JBL Professional is introducing five new subwoofer models: the ASB7118, ASB7128, ASB6115, ASB6125, and ASB6112. The five new models bring the total model count in the AE Series to 46, ranging from the eight recently introduced 2-way AE Compact models to the 33 original models introduced in 2002. As with all AE Series models these five new subwoofers are designed specifically for fixed installation sound reinforcement applications.
These five new models include the very high output ASB7118 single 18-inch and ASB7128 dual 18-inch models, both utilizing the JBL 2269H ultra-long excursion transducer. The 2269H is a Differential Drive® dual 4-inch voice coil high output woofer rated at 2000W continuous pink noise. The compact ASB6115 single 15-inch and ASB6125 dual 15-inch models utilize the Differential Drive dual 3-inch voice coil 2265H transducer rated at 800W continuous pink noise. The ultra-compact ASB6112 is fitted with the all-new 12-inch 2263H 3-inch dual voice coil Differential Drive transducer, rated at 1000W continuous pink noise.
All woofers in these five new models utilize JBL patented technologies and feature neodymium magnets, dual voice coils and magnetic gaps, and ultra-robust cones for extra long life. Cabinet construction consists of top-grade multi-ply hardwood finished in JBL's exclusive DuraFlexâ„¢ paint. Each of these new enclosures is equipped with 16 M10 fittings. Input cups are fitted with screw terminals and a Neutrik® NL4 connector. Input cups used for the dual woofer models are user configurable to operate with the woofers in parallel or in desecrate mode. JBL offers two standard levels of weather resistance for AE Series loudspeakers. WRC is intended for outdoor placement where the loudspeaker will be sheltered from direct exposure to the elements. WRX is suited for direct exposure to the elements.
As with previous AE Series models, these five new models are optimized for applications including theatrical sound design, auditoriums, worship facilities, live clubs, dance clubs, sports facilities and themed entertainment venues. These five new additions to the AE Series further support JBL's commitment to sound system designers worldwide.
