JBL Professional today announced the addition of five new loudspeakers to its AE Series (Application Engineered) lineup. The AM7315/64 and AM7315/95 are 3-way full-range models, the AM7200/64 and AM7200/95 are mid/high models, and the AL7115 is a 15-inch low-frequency model. All five models are designed to deliver high output in applications where clear, powerful sound is required over a wide coverage area. With the addition of the new models, the JBL Professional AE Series now provides more flexibility to audio professionals.
The 3-way AM7315/64 and AM7315/95 can be either bi-amplified or tri-amplified, while the 2-way AM7200/64 and AM7200/95 can either be bi-amplified or operate as a full passive system. The AL7115 low-frequency module is designed to work with the AM7200/64 and AM7200/95 in a low-profile array application where a full-range 3-way system is desired.
The AE Series 3-way and midrange/high-frequency speakers utilize a host of exclusive JBL technologies to deliver clear, accurate sound even at high volume levels. All the low-frequency drivers feature JBL's patented Differential Drive® dual-3-inch voice coil and dual-magnetic-gap design, a configuration that provides high-power output with low distortion and extended bass response.
The AM7315/64, AM7315/95, AM7200/64 and AM7200/95 utilize JBL's exclusive CMCDâ„¢ Cone Midrange Compression Driver technology, which combines high efficiency with extended bandwidth both up and down the frequency range to seamlessly cover the entire vocal range. The 2432H 1.5-inch exit, 3-inch exit CMCD compression driver operates in conjunction with a rotatable Progressive Transitionâ„¢ waveguide, which provides precise directivity control. Because the waveguide can be rotated, the loudspeakers can be used horizontally or vertically while maintaining an optimum coverage pattern.
The AL7115 low-frequency module is designed to complement the AM7200/64 and AM7200/95 to create a full-range, extended-bass system. Using the JBL PAF-3K planar array frame kit, the AL7115 can be fitted between two AM7200 mid-high loudspeakers to form a low profile, three-wide full-range array. The AL7115 utilizes a JBL 2265H 15-inch Differential Drive transducer to deliver powerful, articulate low-frequency output, with more than 800 watts power-handling capability.
“Our new AE Series models round out the line to give system designers more installation options,” stated Jon Sager, Director of Market Development for Installed Sound, JBL Professional. “All five models utilize the same JBL transducer technology as the 23 AE Series models introduced over the past 12 months. With the introduction of these five models, it's easier than ever to create the optimum sound-reinforcement configuration for a greater variety of applications.”
