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

shrill piercing treble, need a equalizer

Yes these do get loud, I will give them that. but in my pro opinion the sound is missing a lot of midrange and annoyingly, fatiguing and piercingly bright at 12k and above. It sounds as if jbl used a commercial fire alarm horn for a tweeter.
For music in loud applications like Djing in clubs is where this fatiguing shrillness is most noticeable. They can sound semi decent if you run them through a graphic equalizer.
The Behringer B215 is a much better sounding and equally capable speaker which costs less too, I would suggest you skip these despite the JBL name if you are looking for a full spectrum sound.

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

    I run these as my garage speakers. I also use them occasionally at relatives weddings. Have two 315's and a 618s. Only problem I have with them is if I play them loud, they shake everything in the garage till it falls off of the shelf it's sitting on. Not the speakers mind you, they're on stands, but spray paint cans, tools, anything just sitting there ends up on the floor!

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

    I bought a couple of these (Stupid Deal of the Day) for use in my practice room and they have worked out very well. Being light, I can mount them up high which reduces the mic feedback I was getting and they have the power to push the vocals past the drums. They do hiss a little with no signal but we never play quiet enough for that to be an issue. Great speakers for the price.

      I bought two for my band on the SDOTD, and then ended up buying another two the second time they came up. Mainly used for monitors, they're perfect for for all of our vocals and guitars. We set them as cut on the eq and we keep our bass guitar through the amp. Also used them for our mains for an outdoor marathon and everything came through perfectly. They don't have much punch for the kick and bass guitar but they're not sub woofers. Perfect for what we use them for.

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

        own several sets of light weight powered and unpowered speakers. I purchased these on close out. These JBLs have a pretty balanced sound quality compared to some of my other units. They are extended in terms of frequency and power bandwidth and deliver good volume with punchy dynamics. JBL has wisely not dialed in a lot of gain making them harder to overdrive. If you leverage a mixer you will get your extra gain there. If you plug mics or aux devices straight in, you may need to turn the speaker's gain controls way up to create the volume you desire. I think this is a good design approach. Also note that the built in class D amp delivers 220 watts continuous RMS power to the woofer and 60 watts continous RMS to the hi frequency horn. On the newer replacement model, peak power is quoted, not continuous RMS power, yielding a much higher advertised wattage rating. This mean the actual sound pressure of this unit of 127db is pretty close to the newer models output. If you don't need the newer model's Bluetooth feature set, the JBL EON315 is a great buy.

            Good For What We Use Them For

            By Dennis

            from Eugene, Oregon

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

            I bought this speaker to replace one we've been gigging with for 6 years that got dropped too hard once too often. We're an acoustic band and use them more for sound reinforcement than for full-on amplification. Anyplace we need that and the venue supplies the PA. The good-- fast, easy setup, light weight, clean sound, no need for an amp or amp rack. With these speakers, we can be set up with a PA, 8 mics, maybe a DI, and run a sound check in 30-40 minutes. The bad-- sound is clean, but kinda lacking in presence, which isn't really such a problem if folks can here you to some degree without speakers. Seriously lacking in bottom end; you're better off using using a small amp than plugging a string bass into the PA via a DI. If you drop one too hard,they break, and they're not serviceable. If we lose another one like this, we'll probably be taking a real hard look at passive speakers and an amp. Even with the extra setup work, it's easier not to drop an amp than a speaker.

            Using it as Keyboard Amp

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

            I went to Guitar Center to buy a keyboard amp for small gigs. Ended up buying the 315 because it's so light and compact. I used it for a wedding and I was very pleased with the sound and how easy it is to transport! Might just go ahead and buy the second one soon! I bought the carrying case online and it is also wonderful! It fits the speaker like a glove!
