JBL PRX85W 15″ Three-Way 1500W Powered PA System




Audio professionals looking for a powered PA system with subtlety and nuance will be impressed by the JBL PRX835W, a 3-way active loudspeaker designed for main PA applications with extensive Wi-Fi control over the onboard DSP. Well suited for event halls, bands, DJ systems, clubs, bars, schools, and churches, the speaker is optimized for full-range sound reinforcement applications. The PRX835W is designed to match the PRX815XLF or PRX818XLF subwoofers (separately sold), offering a high-performance, self-powered sub/satellite system.

The speaker utilizes two 750W Class-D amplifiers delivering a total of 1500W to the 15″ woofer, 6.5″ midrange driver, and 1.5″ compression driver, which combine to offer a frequency range of 42 Hz to 20 kHz at 138 dB maximum SPL output, plenty of output to cover audiences of up to 400.

The built-in Wi-Fi offers wireless control of the system from anywhere in the venue using the free PRX Connect app for iOS and Android devices. The app controls levels, parametric EQ, user presets, and up to 50ms of user-defined delay to fine-tune your setup. The durable 18mm plywood enclosure is coated with an Obsidian DuraFlex finish and a powder coated steel grille with acoustical transparent black cloth backing.
