Overview

The JBL EON515 is a 15-inch, two-way, powered, portable speaker system. Capable of reproducing full bandwidth sound at high levels it offers the additional utility of a 3 channel built-in mixer. The EON515 speaker is comprised of a 15" Differential Drive woofer, a 1" neodymium high frequency compression driver coupled to a 100 H by 60 V waveguide. Both components are driven by the discrete channels of a 450 W Crown Class-D integrated power amplifier. The input section contains all crossover functions, protection, and audio mixer functionality.
The mixer offers XLR or 1/4-inch TRS phone jack compatibility. Selectable input sensitivities allow a broad range of devices to be properly matched. A unique mix/loop signal low router provides opportunities for daisy chaining or gigging with the built-in mixer only. Pre-engineered system EQs allow for matching the settings to the actual source material. In the "cut" position maximum level can be achieved for speech reproduction by reducing need to reinforce the lower frequencies. This is also a typical setting when using the PA speaker system as a floor monitor, reducing low frequency build-up that occurs naturally when placed on a floor. The "flat" setting is ideal for live music and the "boost" for reproducing low level pre-recorded music, delivering extra low and high frequency energy. The signal present and limit lights indicate performance status. JBL included an additional switch that kills the illuminated logo in theater applications.

I've been very happy using the JBL Eon G-2 15's for years now. I certainly was excited to get to use the entire line for 2008 Christmas and Corporate Events. I couldn't get over the light weight, they were so easy to mount on the pole and a few times guests at the parties, asked if I had additional speakers hidden from the public view. Looking forward to using them at all of my gigs in 2009.

I was so excited to get these speakers to replace my G2 15s 450 watt speakers and was so bummed how they operate. I called JBL tech support and when through the settings with him to no avail. He said - "oh ya, we went a different direction with the G3s and you need a very powerful mixer." So yes, you do need a very powerful mixer. I use a Newmark for DJing and it's no where near powerful enough. Unlike the G2s, with the G3s I can't just plug a computer into them in a pinch if I needed to. Very low sounding volume and pumping them up just makes them clip. My G2s I only need to put up to 1/3 volume and they fill a room. Why have powered speaker with a semi-mixer built in if you have to have a very high end mixer to lug around? If you have a very powerful mixer and you don't care about being able to use them without a mixer apparently you're good to go. JBL should have called them something else since they really aren't anything like the G2s.

Great on so many levels

By Mark Richards

from Oreange, Ca

Comments about JBL EON515 450 Watt 15" Powered PA Speaker:

I use these for video productions. I was video taping and streaming a national compatition for Yoga in the Grand Ballroom (20,000 sq ft) at the LAX Westin infront of 500 spectators. I had these babies set up for the live sound conected to wireless recivers fed from an eight channel digital recording sudio. They sounded great and so clear with voice only but the music was also just as clear. Set up and tear down is so easy too. Their light, clear and powerfull.

Eon 515 & 518

from SoCal

Comments about JBL EON515 450 Watt 15" Powered PA Speaker:

I use these regulary with a 6 piece rock band. Inside and out and they sound great. I always get compliments on the sound. They have no problem keeping up with a ftr37 and a SVT... and we run the keys and drums through them at the same time. They just keep cranking night after night. A clear winner in the I don't want a hernia by 30 catgory.

Wow

By DC-OS3g6

from Daytona Beach, FL

Comments about JBL EON515 450 Watt 15" Powered PA Speaker:

I use this for a floor monitor for vocals. I bought a cheaper one and mf gladly took it back on a return and sent me this one. The Behringer 1220A was a nice unit, it just had no volume. This thing has volume to spare. It is louder than our practice PA. The one thing JBL could do better would be to put the volume control in a place that would be more convenient for someone using it in this application. OVERALL I say WOW! this unit rocks. Thanks again mf for your fine customer service team.

Convenient and portable

By Mind and State

from Newark, OH

Comments about JBL EON515 450 Watt 15" Powered PA Speaker:

I bought the 515's to replace an older passive system. Their best attribute is the convenience of the integrated amps and their portability. They are ridiculously light.I ordered the 515s and a pair of the 518S subs, but they arrived a day apart. When I got the 515's, I tried them out by themselves and initially, I was really concerned about the output. They sounded really nice at low volumes, but if you boost the low frequencies and turn them up, they peak fairly easily. Bass eats up that 350 watts pretty fast.Once I got the subs and split the signal with the built-in high-pass filter, it was a different story. I ended up getting really nice and unexpected clarity and tone. Vocals and guitar were reproduced nicely - and at significant volume.I've only used them in small spaces so far, and the output was sufficient. I am anxious to see how they do in larger venues. Based on the specifications, I would have expected to have a bit more headroom than I do. Looks like I will routinely run them at about 90%. Again, their real value is in convenience and portability. You have to take that into consideration.I would have also liked to have seen a more detailed user manual. It's very basic.Overall, I am happy with them, but will say that based on my applications, I would not purchase them without subs. Subs make a huge difference in getting the most out of the available power in 515's.

Perfect

By Soundman-eBHm-

from Madison WI

Comments about JBL EON515 450 Watt 15" Powered PA Speaker:

I play out almost every Friday and Saturday. These have been in the band for 6 months and they are incredible!! I can run as loud or quiet as I need to and they always sound crystal clear. They have held up quite well playing in bars, clubs, inside and out all the time but get the cases for them to keep them nice, they do scratch up easily.

Nice Sound!

By DJ Sly

from Houston, Tx

Comments about JBL EON515 450 Watt 15" Powered PA Speaker:

Bought these about a year ago. Apart from the fact the speakers look good, most importantly they are very light and ideal for the mobile DJ. I complemented these with a pair of EONs 518 subs. To get the most out of these, you will need a good mixer otherwise it will not drive the speakers appropriately and output will not sound as it should. This offers more range than the older versions but if you do not drive them right you won't get the desired output. On there own (515s) they are nice but, with the 518s you can do decent gigs and hold your own.
