Eon One single-handedly hits the market

Eon One single-handedly hits the market

Published:

JBL Professional has unveiled its first portable column speaker system in the form of the Eon One. Claiming a maximum SPL of 118dB in lightweight package that is ‘easy to carry with just one hand’, promises the American manufacturer, the system also integrates a six-channel mixer with bass, treble and reverb controls, as well as Bluetooth streaming to enable playback from sources such as smartphones, tablets and laptops.

The system itself comprises a 10-inch bass reflex subwoofer and six two-inch HF drivers. When transporting the system, the high frequency section and two spacers fit directly into the bass unit. Different configurations of the spacers reportedly allows the system to cater to both small meetings and intimate events, as well as live performances and large crowds.

Moving into the install sector, the manufacturer has introduced a wide frequency response pendant loudspeaker named the Control 64P/T, which it claims offers the best sound quality in the Control Series for its price point. Targeted at the retail and hospitality markets, the enclosure houses a 30W transformer enabling the speaker to be used at 8-Ohms or on 70V or 100V distributed lines, while its stated frequency response is from 65Hz to 15kHz. Internally, the loudspeaker’s driver is a 4-inch 100mm full-range driver with a polypropylene-coated cone for durability and a 0.8-inch high-temperature voicecoil for high power handling and long-term reliability. This reportedly results in 120-degrees of coverage. Like other models in the Control Series line, the 64P/T includes suspension hardware with a 4.5m galvanised steel cable and adjustable clamp.

Lastly, JBL has introduced version 2.0 of its HiQnet Performance Manager software, which features a completely redesigned user interface ‘to meet the specific requirements of touring and live performance’ and several time-saving features such custom preset configurations based on the dragging and dropping of speakers to any amplifier channel. Integration with the JBL Line Array Calculator (LAC) has also been improved and now offers the ability to import an array created in LAC into Performance Manager in one step. All circuiting information, level and EQ adjustments developed in LAC transfer to Performance Manager and then to the amplifiers without having to manually move the parameters over from one software program to the other.
