Words by Sam McNiece

Featuring DSP by Lexicon and dbx.

Harman have unveiled the newest edition to the JBL Professional PRX Column Portable PA range with the PRX ONE. The portable PA is controllable by their new app, JBL Pro Connect, allowing every parameter on up to 10 units controllable.

What you need to know:

  • JBL Professional have announced a new portable PA system and app to control it.
  • The PRX ONE features an acoustically optimised driver array, digital mixer, pro DSP and Bluetooth functionality.
  • The speaker can be controlled by their new JBL Pro Connect app which allows for every parameter to be tweaked remotely.

Brandon Knudsen, JBL product manager for loudspeakers says about the new range, “when we set out to design a new compact column PA, acoustic performance was top of our list. But at the same time, we know that every scenario is unique. We’ve outfitted the PRX ONE with an incredibly versatile feature set that we believe will appeal to a broad range of performers: Singer/songwriters will appreciate its robust DSP and I/O set, while DJs will love the ability to push the system hard, with that deep bass they crave.”

JBL Professional’s new PRX ONE utilises a 12″ bass-reflex woofer and a twelve tweeter column array which you can drive up to 130dB full bandwidth SPL. They feature Lexicon and dbx digital processors onboard along with an 8-band EQ, delay, compression, limiting, ducking, echo and a sub synth.

Along with this, there’s a Soundcraft-designed 7-channel dual-mode digital mixer, which is controllable through the onboard LCD or new JBL Pro Connect app.

This app is available for iOS and Android which has full control over the PRX ONE mixer, DSP and Bluetooth features and can control up to 10 individual units through the same app. Very neat.

The whole package weighs 25.4kg (54 pounds), which in terms of a speaker that packs this sort of punch is quite reasonable. They guarantee each unit will perform well in real-world conditions, as they’re stress tested for 100 hours before hitting the market.
