The story of JBL is one that most pro audio aficionados know well - the company was founded in 1946, and they've been impressing audiences and professionals all over the world in every decade since. Most people are familiar with JBL's work in the home audio market, but where they really shine is their high-end speakers, like the JBL PRX700 Series cabinets you'll find here. This is JBL's professional powered loudspeaker line, designed to overcome all the challenges of live sound reinforcement, including high ambient noise levels and very high volumes. If you're looking for the right speakers to handle the most demanding venues and stages, then look no further: the PRX700 Series is ready.
As you start looking through the options here, you might ask yourself why you would choose powered speakers over passive ones. While that's a question only you can answer, there are a few advantages to consider. For instance, powered speakers don't need an external amplifier, which is a real boon for a touring setup since it reduces the amount of gear you have to transport - not to mention less to set up and tear down before and after a show. It also means that your powered speakers can accept input from virtually any source, even if it's not an amplified one.
Within the JBL PRX700 Series, there are plenty of choices allowing you to scale to your needs. If you're equipping a small to medium-sized venue with modest power requirements, you can keep it small with the PRX710. For bigger spaces and outdoor gigs, step up to the PRX712 or PRX715. And when it comes to really big stages, check out the 3-way JBL PRX735. Want to take one of those systems even further? No problem - just add the PRX718LXF subwoofer to kick the low end up a notch.
There are three principles behind the JBL PRX700 Series: power, convenience and versatility. Their power is self-explanatory, with high-wattage built-in amplification to push plenty of volume. Convenience is being able to travel with less equipment. And versatility comes from the PRX700 loudspeaker design that's well-suited to any audio source and virtually every kind of situation or venue. To put it simply, these speakers are prepared to do it all, and do it well.
