JBL Professional by Harman, and UK distributor Sound Technology Ltd have announced UK shipping of the new JBL PRX800W portable PA system. With complete WiFi control, advanced DSP tuning, patented JBL Differential Drive loudspeaker technology and 1500W Class-D power, the JBL PRX800W Series is the most advanced PA in its class.

The PRX Connect mobile app for iOS and Android connects wirelessly to each unit in the system simultaneously, providing full control over the powerful DSP built in to each speaker. With control over eight-band parametric EQ, speaker delay, mute, gain and more, PRX Connect helps musicians achieve the perfect sound for their performances, faster than ever before. Users can walk around the venue during sound check and fine-tune the speakers for optimal sound quality. PRX Connect also makes it easy to configure shows offline and save presets for fast future set up.

Featuring integrated 1500-watt Class-D power amplification, PRX800W is the most powerful and efficient system in its class. Patented JBL Differential Drive woofer technology reduces magnet mass while increasing power handling. Updated tuning delivers flat frequency response and smooth off-axis behaviour. The all-wood cabinets feature durable tongue-in-groove joints, tour-proven DuraFlex protective finish and dent-resistant 16-gauge steel grilles. PRX800W systems undergo a stringent testing regimen, including a 100-hour torture test, to ensure peak performance in any real-world environment. The combined result is an ultra-reliable and remarkably lightweight system capable of delivering clear, pristine audio at extraordinarily high volumes.

PRX800W loudspeakers are packed with innovations from Harman’s industry-leading live sound brands, introducing a new level of flexibility, scalability and sound quality to the portable PA category. The redesigned Crown input panel offers XLR, 1/4” and RCA inputs plus XLR loop-through and professional outputs to provide plenty of options for input sources and routing. dbx Type IV limiting eases the system back to a safe level when any frequency band is in limit, ensuring that the sound is accurate and uncompressed, even at very high volumes over long periods of time. An intelligent variable-speed fan cools the system only as needed to ensure optimal sound quality during quiet performances. PRX800W systems can be easily scaled by adding additional speakers, and they offer seamless integration with other JBL powered PA systems.

“With the PRX800W family, we’re excited to give bands and DJs more control over their live sound than ever before,” said Craig Lambrecht, retail and recording solutions, Harman Professional Solutions. “Users can now shape their sound wirelessly, right from the palm of their hand, ensuring the best possible listening experience for themselves and their audiences. PRX800W is by far our most advanced and powerful portable PA, and represents the next generation in smart live sound reinforcement.”
