12" 2-way stage monitor
Our take on the JBL JRX212 by Crutchfield's Bob Bihlmayer
JBL's JRX200 loudspeaker line delivers the level of performance and quality you expect from JBL without cleaning out your savings account. The JRX 212 is a portable 12", 2-way speaker designed for stage monitoring in live performance situations.
The JRX212 monitor features a 12" low-frequency speaker and a 1" compression driver with a polymer diaphragm for high performance and system reliability. The high-frequency driver uses a Progressive Transition high-frequency waveguide to provide clearer sound with less interference. The crossover network uses heavy-duty components to allow high power levels and deliver a clear, coherent sound. JBL's SonicGuard technology protects the high-frequency driver from damage caused by excessive sound levels.
The JRX212's rugged 3/4" MDF enclosure features an 18-gauge steel grille and non-resonant steel handles. A dual-angle pole mounting socket and 500-watt maximum power rating allow the JRX212 to double as a PA speaker for smaller systems. Whether for sound reinforcement or stage monitoring, the JBL JRX212 offers the performance and durability JBL is known for in a surprisingly affordable package.

JBL JRX212 Reviews
What's in the box?
- PA loudspeaker
Two-Way Stage Monitor: The JBL JRX212 is a portable, two-way speaker designed specifically for live performance stage monitoring applications. The JRX212 employs a 12" low frequency driver with a 2.5" diameter edge-wound ribbon voice coil for greater efficiency and power handling, and a 1" polymer compression driver for improved high frequency performance as well as system reliability.
Progressive Transition Waveguide: The 1" tweeter is coupled with a Progressive Transition high frequency waveguide which provides superior coverage control (90° H x 50° V), reduced distortion, and smoother frequency response.
SonicGuard HF Protection: Integrated SonicGuard protection circuitry shields the high frequency compression driver from excess power without interrupting the speaker's performance.
Rugged Enclosure: The rugged, acoustically superior enclosure is constructed from 0.75" MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) using advanced adhesives and mechanical fastener technology for extreme durability and improved low-frequency performance. An attractive 18AWG hexagon perforated, steel grille protects speaker components from damage. The enclosure also features non-resonant, all-steel handles.
Input/Output Connectors: The JRX212 stage monitor speaker is fitted with a Speakon NL4 connector and a 1/4" TS phone plug connectors. There is also a parallel identical Speakon NL4 and 1/4" connector that facilitates a loop-through connection so you can daisy-chain and power an additional JRX212 speaker.
Dual-Angle Pole Sock: The JRX212 stage monitor also includes a dual-angle pole socket (1-3/8") allowing it to be used as a front-of-house speaker.
