  • New JBL PRX 600 series

    New from JBL. http://www.jblpro.com/catalog/General/ProductFamily.aspx?FId=93&MId=3 Looks to be a lighter weight, with bigger amps and better processing than the 500 series. Also have flypoints.The horns on the 612s are 90x50 not 70x70 like the 512m.

      SRX powered cabs finally?
      At first glance they look like the 500 series updated with class D amps and all neo drivers. They even have two subs that look similar in specs to the PRX518S and PRX718S. A powered version of the SRX712M would certainly be great but looks like the wait is still on?

        Well, they have always had class D amps, they have always had Neo drivers...

        It looks to me like a logical evolution of the PRX line, same HF drivers (in the 612 and 615) but different LF drivers that are more robust and tuned for better LF response. The amp technology is similar, though they may be changing the way they state their power in response to the way QSC was successful with their K series. In fact, this looks like a logical response to the introduction of the KW's.

        This (among with the KW's) would probably be a good choice for an awful lot of folks trying (quite unsuccessfully I might add) to roll their own thinking they know whatthey are doing.

            Nice looking box, but what gives with these companies lately? (Showing frequency response at -10dB) How the hell can a guy make an informed purchase? BIG turn-off for me. Same with K-Series' 1000w rating,,, ugh !!

              Well, I've always been in the habit of reading between the lines... and these new boxes still look pretty solid.

              Anyone get word on pricing or shipping dates?

                I noticed the new boxes are poplar instead of birch.I don't know if this would reduce weight or change any resonance.

                  Looks to be a lighter weight,


                  Is that really necessary?

                    As you get older it becomes necessary.

                      Yeah, but I use the PRX-512s and 518s now and those things are LIGHT. I can think of some reasons to upgrade the line, but the weight certainly isn't an issue.

                        the -10dB response has become pretty standard, but JBL also offers -3dB points and there's the reponse plots which give all the information necesary.

                          I have used poplar before, and depending on how it's laid up (all poplay, combination of poplar and pine/birch etc) it may be a little lighter.

                          Lightweight is really good for those of us who know better

                            Sorry for my ignorance, but how do you drive a single 18" driver with two 500 watt amps?
                            Will drum for food. Will drum with impeccable timing, feel, groove, and dynamics for $$$.

                              The dual 15" tower weighs just 60 pounds. Unbelievable for a quality speaker, and a good 25 pounds less than it's predecessor if I'm not mistaken.

                              I do more DJ and karaoke jobs than live music these days - sorry. None of the rest of you guys probably are interested in towers.
