NAMM (Booth #14811), ANAHEIM, Calif—HARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in audio, video, lighting and control systems, including networked AV, today showcased the JBL EON ONE PRO rechargeable portable linear-array PA at the 2018 NAMM show, and announced its immediate worldwide availability.

Combining the power and clarity of a professional JBL PA system with the convenience and portability of a self-contained, battery-powered solution, the EON ONE PRO empowers musicians to perform in any location. In addition to versatile coverage patterns and a lightweight design, the EON ONE PRO features Bluetooth® audio, a seven-channel mixer and a rechargeable lithium battery that lasts up to six hours. Ideal for gigging musicians, DJs, mobile presenters and more, the EON ONE PRO makes it fast and easy to set up and perform with superior sound quality in any environment.

“The EON ONE PRO leverages JBL’s rich 70-year history of audio innovation to set a new benchmark for mobile sound reinforcement,” said Craig Lambrecht, Retail & Recording Solutions, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “Musicians and performers can take full control of their sound using a built-in seven-channel mixer with Bluetooth audio, and then quickly collapse the entire system and carry it with one hand. This unprecedented combination of power, portability and control enables musicians to perform literally anywhere with excellent sound quality, and we’re excited to introduce the EON ONE PRO to our customers at NAMM.”

As the first all-in-one battery-powered linear-array P.A. system, the EON ONE PRO provides the ultimate combination of sound quality and portability. The high-frequency section and two spacers fit conveniently into the base unit, providing a streamlined package. Users can set up the system in seconds, choosing the right number of spacers to optimize the sound for each application. Two spacers provide a long throw for live performances and large crowds, while a single spacer is ideal for conferences, gyms and medium-sized groups. For small meetings and intimate events, users can place the high-frequency section directly atop the base unit.

With a maximum SPL of 118 dB (peak), the EON ONE PRO provides loud, yet detailed, distortion-free audio. An unobstructed 8” bass-reflex subwoofer delivers tight, accurate low-frequency response that’s ideal for DJs and playing back recorded music. The high-frequency section features JBL’s patent-pending Directivity Control Geometry, which optimizes the spacing and angles of the six two-inch high-frequency drivers to deliver full and clear sound over a wide coverage area, ensuring that the entire audience hears the sound accurately and consistently. 

The built-in seven-channel mixer with Hi-Z inputs and phantom power enables users to connect microphones, instruments such as acoustic guitars, electric guitars and keyboards, and other sources. The mixer features bass, treble and reverb controls to optimize the sound. The unit also includes a pass-thru XLR connector for integrating additional units for more robust sound reinforcement. Bluetooth audio streaming makes it easy to play back recorded music from smartphones or tablets. A USB charger connection provides power for phones and tablets when needed and the unit features an integrated tablet stand for convenience. An optional accessory attachments allows users to add a GoPro® camera to capture shows.
