This set of speakers is great for any mid size venue indoor and outdoor, they can provide good sound for about 200-300 people. I set the level of the speakers at midpoint and I am getting loud sound and great quality, I definately recommend this speakers to anyone! Now with the addition of the subwoofer, you will be in top shape for any large venue. DJ CheLe

these speakers are super super light, they look nice and clean with set up. i dj a lot and i have to be honest, with all jbl products i have owned these have given me the worst problems. these speakers cannot handle bottom end especially when mixing tracks they tend to clip and cut off (real nasty sound). these speakers are great for 100 people at the most with light talking i wouldnt recommend these speakers to a dj who knows how to mix and scratch they wont hold up. i will be buying a couple sets of the prx series hopefully they can with stand some heavy hitting bass.

Worth Every Penny

By Drunk Dial

Comments about JBL EON315 15" 280-Watt Powered PA Speaker:

We picked up two of these bad boys a few weeks back and they're amazing. The power and sound quality is AMAZING. If you're on the fence just jump in and buy these, you won't be disappointed. Very crisp highs and mids.

Great Speakers!

By Jesse

from Edmond, OK

Comments about JBL EON315 15" 280-Watt Powered PA Speaker:

I had a Harbinger PA system that I bought for around 300 dollars. I went cheap. They blew the first show I had and I only play acoustic. I then decided to purchase a Behringer mixer and ran it into just ONE of these and man.. It sounds amazing! The bass was so clear and thick yet the highs and mids were crisp and full. I am going to buy another one of these for sure!

Best weight-to-performance ratio

By Kurt

from PA and NY

Comments about JBL EON315 15" 280-Watt Powered PA Speaker:

After comparing PA speakers for over a year - I finally settled on the EONs. Ultimately it came down to either the EON 315 or the Mackie SRM450v2. The EON was lighter weight, better priced, more well built, and has better low end response. In terms of maximum SPL the Mackie may have it by a slight edge but the SRM450 has known overheating problems and also LOUD Technologies (Parent company of Mackie) is having financial difficulties and cannot keep up with demand. Ive been using my JBLs for a while now and have not had a single problem and I really love the low end response on these with the 15" woofer (compared to the Mackies 12"). In my experience I cannot recommend a better speaker at this price point. Are there better speakers out there? Sure - but the EON is an industry standard that is univerally respected for good reason. JBL invented the Active loudspeaker and it shows in the quality of the EON 315. Downsides: Can be harsh at higher SPLs and limits pretty easily when in Boost mode. Looks of it are love it or hate it. Upsides: Great build quality, great low end response, extremely light weight. Overall: I couldnt take any other speaker at this price - everything considered.

Blew me socks off!

By Matthew

from Leach, OK

Comments about JBL EON315 15" 280-Watt Powered PA Speaker:

This superb sounding speaker system is a good choice for a good many venues; from the local cattlemen's association meeting to the local christian rock band to, Sunday church services. Of special note is its ability to work directly with a microphone, absent any external pre-amplifier or mixing device and, its ability to work with the usual gamut of line level sources. I was stunned by the sound quality from the EON 315 speaker. I've six of them. They are perfect for mains and floor monitors. The XLR inputs allow for use with the best cable and zero power loss due to long runs of speaker cable. Internal amplifiers make for the most in flexibility. A definite must have for the sound man!

Ok but ...

By Foo Dump

from Siler City NC

Comments about JBL EON315 15" 280-Watt Powered PA Speaker:

Gigged with 2 for over a year. Overall these are good speakers, esp considering power vs. weight. But ... the bass end cut out on one while under warranty. Easy minor repair, low-freq vibration just shook loose a connector to the speaker that wasn't properly seated at the factory. Using hi-Z input it isn't loud enough. If your mixer has XLR outs, use 'em. If not, a cheap TRS-to-XLR adapter w/ the 315 mic input level setting delivers the expected volume for a 280W amp. Counterintuitive, but it is what it is. 4 out of 5 for minor annoyances in an otherwise good product.

Very High Quality But

By John Marzich

from Arroyo Grande, Ca

Comments about JBL EON315 15" 280-Watt Powered PA Speaker:

Bought these with the DBX speaker managment bundle. They sound great and pleanty of power but no matter what I do or adjust even with no connection to them the horns have a noisy floor? They touted the spec's of being quiet and then this? Yeah you don't hear it when volume is up but ShHHHHHHHHHH coming out is not very impressive on lower volumes. E-Mail JBL support and natuarlly NO replay. Probably should re-write the sn/spec to be ethical. Other than that yes they are great and comparing to other brands the sound is very good once your above the SHHHHHH levels...

Sacrificing bells and whistles for JBL sound

By ERIC MANACSA

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about JBL EON315 15" 280-Watt Powered PA Speaker:

I've been using these speakers for about a month. They sound nice in the house. Did well in the garage for a New Year's party and did pretty well in a restaurant hall. Pros: light JBL quality sound Cons: expensive only 280w limited inputs limited EQ I'm rushing to get a subwoofer to complete this set. It really needs more low end. Make sure to get this with a coupon. It's very limited for something costing over $500.
