WIth the EON 515XT, JBL has extended the reach of the current EON technology by improving input sensitivity, lowering the noise floor, adding user selectable EQ control and re-voicing the system for peak performance and enhanced audio precision. The intuitive onboard 3-channel mixer with adjustable EQ assures that you're in control of the sound and the sturdy construction and superior ergonomic design will guarantee a lifetime of reliability and simplicity. Put it all together and the EON 515XT is the toughest, smartest and most impressive EON ever.

The EON 515XT's onboard mixer is perfectly suited to accommodate multiple input sources simultaneously. With 2 1/4"" TRS Phone jacks and 1 Neutrix combination jack that accepts an XLR or 1/4" TRS Phone plug, the mixer is capable of blending 3 discrete sources like a stereo keyboard and microphone or a CD/MP3 player and a microphone. The EON 515XT features a loop-through for routing the signal to another destination like an additional EON powered speaker, a recording device, or another mixer. With its global Bass and Treble controls, you can also tailor the sound to fit your unique needs.

EON 515XT represents the natural evolution of a product whose creators have been advancing the state of the art in professional audio for more than 60 years. With close to 1 million EON speakers in the world, it's safe to say it's a name you can trust.

    The Best Got Better

    By DaveJack

    from Columbus OH

    Comments about JBL EON 515XT 15" Powered PA Speaker:

    JBL has taken the EON 515 to the next level. The previous version was great, but these are much better. They have a quick response, and an extra 100W of power. They offer richer fuller bass and better EQ controls. They are still very light weight and easy to tranport rig & gig. With four of these, you can tackle a large venue with ease (high school auditorium size) without subs.

    best speaker I have owned.

    By B.Wilson

    from Oilton,ok

    Comments about JBL EON 515XT 15" Powered PA Speaker:

    I just bought 2 for my setup without subs and they kick. Great bass and clear mid and high. I have QSC, RCF and some old EAW and these JBL's have better sound then any of my other speakers. I set up pa systems under contract and have been in business for many years. The only speakers that I think are better are my FBT's but they cost 3600 per. Buy these speakers they are worth every cent.

    great for use as a keyboard amp

    By Neil Greene

    from Randolph, Ma.

    Comments about JBL EON 515XT 15" Powered PA Speaker:

    I have been looking for a really powerful keyboard amp for multi - use gb, jazz and even rock gigs. Because of a herniated disk I do not want to carry a lot of weight. Traded in some old gear at gc and bought this baby for use as a keyboard amp. what a fantastic idea! It weighs less then 33 pounds and blows away most keyboard amps weighing in at twice the weight. There are 3 instrument inputs in the back so you can even plug in a mic or a second keyboard. as good as this unit sounds, you may want to buy a mixer as it will give you a 3 band equalizer as opposed to the treble and bass only equalizer built into the 515xt. I bought 2 small 4 channel mixers and can now use this as an 8 channel PA! great sounds, great quality, very portable. works for me!

    Comments about JBL EON 515XT 15" Powered PA Speaker:

    I got this babies a few months ago, to be honest, this speakers outbid Mackies in any way or the QSC's I used to be a EV fan until I stearted playing with this high quality speakers, you can't go wrong.


    Great Price Great Performance

    By Peter Forgenie

    from Brooklyn N.Y

    Comments about JBL EON 515XT 15" Powered PA Speaker:

    I would recommend these speakers to a Friend. I originally had purchased the Makie Thumps, to start off my Dj set up however you do get what u pay for. They played ok but when serious volume and performance was needed they came up short. One 515xt EON can out do both Makies. The EON's play strong loud and clear, and that is just one, a pair makes for really good sound almost anywhere. They continue to amaze me and the portability is a big plus. you get decent bass also, I mean nothing earth shattering but good enough to play almost any venue. For the price, size, and weight, I think these are the among the best speakers you can get.


    These speakers thump !

    from Boston Ma

    Comments about JBL EON 515XT 15" Powered PA Speaker:

    For years I have had wanted to try JBL products and finally did and bought these .Very glad I did ! I have over 30 years in the music business as Dj and Musician and am very pleased. Great all around speakers. Lots of thump and power and very lightweight. Design is awesome and at the end of the gig easy to break down and I also bought the official JBL bags perfect fit! Very reliable, durable lightweight and a winner all around !


    Best investment in small package

    By Jeffry

    from North Royalton, Ohio

    Comments about JBL EON 515XT 15" Powered PA Speaker:

    I own 2 Eons from 2004, and wanted to increase the volume for outside gigs. The bonus is the new Eons have 3 handles, instead of one, built-in mixers, and feel a bit lighter than the older Eons. The look is sleek, and the sound is great. There is a slight rise in bass volume, which I had to reduce in my BBE 802. I run voices, and digital tracks through the Eons, which are crystal-clear. Sold my Bose L-1 (too much carry & set-up, even if they sounded good). 2 days after 1st new Eon purchase, I bought a 2nd one.Now for concerts, I have 1 new & one 'old' on each side- great sound & coverage!

    Comments about JBL EON 515XT 15" Powered PA Speaker:

    All I can say is JBL did it again. Worth every penny even the TAX, lol. The EON 515XT are solid nice deep base, the build in Cross over with High's and Low's was a Plus, Very light weight, since I have a bad back it worked out very well for me. Very powerful, don't let the looks full you. I've gotten a lot compliments on these speakers. I've always stayed with JBL there the Best, and buying my Gear at Guitar Center is so hassle free, no matter if its in the store or online. I want to thank Eddie at the Guitar Center in La Mesa Store #112 what an outstanding sales person, He explained how the speakers works and what I should buy to protect it. I gave him a 5 STAR, he is a real role model for all Guitar Center workers they need to be like him Thank your Guitar Center for making my experience an outstanding one. I will see you guys soon, OH by the way he even broke me down and sold me RANE 62 mixer, i'm so impressed. #FLip2Syde #GreatCustormerService
