FRANKFURT, Germany – HARMAN’s JBL  Professional today announced the introduction of its STX800 Series  portable loudspeakers, designed to bridge the gap between lighter-duty  portable PA speakers and full-size tour sound systems. The six STX800  passive loudspeaker models combine exceptional sound quality with rugged, travel-friendly construction, extreme power  handling capability and integration with Crown’s VRack amplifier V5  level processing and HARMAN JBL HiQnet Performance Manager™ software.
The  JBL STX800 Series models include: the 12-inch, 2-way STX812M; the  15-inch, 2-way STX815M; the dual 15-inch, 2-way STX825; the dual  15-inch, slot-loaded 3-way STX835; the 18-inch STX818S subwoofer; and the dual 18-inch  STX828S subwoofer.
JBL  STX800 Series loudspeakers utilize proprietary JBL high-power-handling  drivers that deliver extremely low distortion and precision waveguides  for accurate pattern control. STX800 Series enclosures are designed for easy  handling, durability and are conveniently sized to be truck  pack-friendly allowing for the maximum usage of cargo space which lowers  transportation costs and reduces their carbon footprint.
“We  know that “performance” encompasses much more than just specs. Total  Performance is a design principle we embrace that embodies every  characteristic of the product; spectral balance, ergonomics, practicality, extreme  power handling, versatility and appearance are all factors that make a  substantial difference in the real world of professional audio.” said  Richard Ruse, Senior Director of Global Sales, JBL Professional. “STX800 speakers are ideal as a simple, high density  ground stack sound system and are perfect for regional sound and A/V  Rental companies, touring bands and professional mobile DJ’s. With their  M10 suspension points they also function as a cost effective install speaker for night clubs, theaters and churches and are  also an affordable, professional extension to a full-size tour sound  system when used as side-fills and floor monitors.”
The  STX812M and STX815M can be used either as a floor monitor, on a tri-pod  stand or over a subwoofer. Both feature a 70 x 70 degree waveguide for  precise, focused coverage. With its wide frequency range and broad 90 x 50-degree  coverage angle, the STX825 is ideal for bands or DJs as their primary  PA, as a side-fill speaker on a concert stage or as an installed speaker  in a dance club or performance venue.
JBL’s  slot-loaded STX835 is intended for full-range use in standalone  applications or in high-performance environments as a ground stack  passive top box. The STX835 is designed to be placed over the STX828 subwoofer, and  its horn-loaded mid and high-frequency 60 x 40-degree waveguides allow  two STX835’s to be splayed for wide-angle coverage over a large area.  All STX800 loudspeakers can be operated either full-range or bi-amplified.
Though  compact, the STX818S subwoofer can deliver 1,000 watts of continuous  pink noise power handling and comes equipped with a top-mounted M20 pole mount. For applications requiring massive amounts of bass, the STX828S’s  dual 18-inch drivers handle 2,000 watts of continuous pink noise, 4kW  program and 8kW peak.
To  deliver their standard-setting performance, STX800 Series loudspeakers  employ the company’s most advanced technologies, including JBL’s  patented CMCD™ Cone Midrange Compression Driver that provides ultra-low midrange  distortion, increased sensitivity, extended bandwidth and improved phase  coherence. High frequencies are handled by either a 2432H 3-inch or  2453H 4-inch titanium-diaphragm, neodymium-magnet compression driver, operating in conjunction with JBL’s patented  Progressive Transition (PT) waveguides which offer constant directivity  and smooth frequency response over a wide area. STX800 Series woofers  feature the latest evolution of JBL’s Vented Gap Cooling: Super Vented Gap Technology, which provides more efficient heat  dissipation for higher power-handling capability with minimal dynamic  compression.
JBL  STX800 Series loudspeakers offer versatile installation options. All  models (except the subwoofers) incorporate M10 suspension points.  Optional wheel kits are available for the STX818S and STX828S subwoofers. STX800 Series  models are made from top-quality birch/poplar plywood covered in JBL’s  resilient DuraFlex™ material, and have road-tough 14-gauge steel grilles  lined with acoustically transparent cloth.
