HARMAN Professional Solutions introduces the JBL EON ONE PRO rechargeable portable personal linear-array PA, combining the superior sound quality of a professional system with the convenience and portability of a self-contained, battery-powered solution.

Designed for musicians and mobile presenters to perform anywhere with world-class JBL sound quality, the EON ONE PRO features Bluetooth audio, a seven-channel mixer and a rechargeable lithium battery that lasts six hours, making it ideal for musicians, DJs, educators, fitness studios, corporate environments and more.

Stating that the JBL EON ONE established a new standard for mobile sound reinforcement, Craig Lambrecht, Retail & Recording Solutions, HARMAN Professional Solutions said the new EON ONE PRO takes that even further with battery-powered operation, and a broader range of connectivity and control options.

With EON ONE PRO, musicians and mobile presenters can easily control their sound using the built-in 7-channel mixer with Bluetooth audio, then collapse the entire system into the base unit and carry it away in one hand. The new PA system allows them to perform literally anywhere without sacrificing sound quality and control.

As the first all-in-one battery-powered linear-array PA system, the EON ONE PRO provides the ultimate combination of sound quality and portability. Users can set up the system in seconds, choosing the right number of spacers to optimise 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, the high-frequency section can be placed directly atop the base unit.

The high-frequency section features JBL’s patent-pending Directivity Control Geometry, which optimises spacing and angles of the six 2-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.

Some of the advantages of the EON ONE PRO PA system include a streamlined design with the high-frequency section and two spacers fitting conveniently into the base unit; detailed, distortion-free audio with a maximum SPL of 118 dB (peak); unobstructed 8” bass-reflex subwoofer delivering tight, accurate low-frequency response, ideal for DJs and playing back recorded music; built-in 7-channel mixer with Hi-Z inputs and phantom power enabling users to connect microphones and various musical instruments; and bass, treble and reverb controls in the mixer to optimise the sound.

A pass-thru XLR connector helps integrate additional units for more robust sound reinforcement. Bluetooth audio streaming simplifies playback of 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. The integrated accessory attachments allow users to add a camera or a future lighting element to complete any show.
