NORTHRIDGE, CA – OCTOBER 8, 2002 – At the recent AES trade show in Los Angeles, the JBL Professional MPro MP418SP was honored with a 2002 TEC Award. The powered, single 18-inch subwoofer with built-in Crown amplifier won the award for Sound Reinforcement Loudspeaker Technology.

Gerald Tschetter, Director, MI Products for JBL Professional stated, “JBL created the market acceptance of powered speakers with the success of the JBL EON line. We wanted to raise the bar by introducing a self-powered, high-performance subwoofer. When it came time to develop the product, it was a natural step to combine forces with Crown to build a very compact, but high-powered subwoofer.”

The MP418SP powered subwoofer is the first JBL product to feature an internal Crown amplifier. The innovative two-channel amplifier provides 660 watts (4 ohms) per channel, with channel one providing power to the internal 18" speaker and channel two available to power a second passive subwoofer or a full range satellite speaker. In some cases, customers have added the MP418SP to existing systems, both portable and permanent. In other cases, complete systems are configured utilizing the MP418SP together with other MPro speaker models.
