Geometry

JBL's JRX200 loudspeaker line delivers the level of performance and quality you expect from JBL without cleaning out your savings account. The JRX215 is a trapezoidal 15" 2-way speaker designed for sound reinforcement in live performance situations.

Physics

The JRX215 speaker features a 15" low-frequency speaker and a 1" compression driver with a polymer diaphragm for high performance and reliability. The high-frequency driver uses a Progressive Transition high-frequency waveguide to provide clearer sound with less interference. The JRX215 features a crossover network with heavy-duty components that 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, and the speaker's 1000-watt peak rating lets it handle all the abuse you can dish out.

Practical math

The rugged 3/4" MDF enclosure features an 18-gauge steel grille and non-resonant steel handles. A dual-angle pole mounting socket allows the JRX215 to be oriented at 0° or at 10° for increased coverage. The JRX215 offers the performance and durability JBL is known for in a surprisingly affordable package.

General features:

How do I find the right amp for a PA speaker?

PA systems work like any other audio system: send as much power as the speaker can handle, and you'll get the best possible sound quality at all dynamic levels. More power yields deeper, richer, and more satisfying sound -- even at low volumes. It's actually easier to damage speaker components with distortion from cranked-up low power than it is from clean high power. For PA equipment specifically, you can safely use an amplifier whose continuous power output is rated up to double the rated program power capacity of the speaker.

Features

Two-Way PA Speaker: The JBL JRX215 is a portable, two-way speaker designed specifically for live performance applications. The JRX215 employs a 15" 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 JRX215 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 JRX215 speaker.

Dual-Angle Pole Sock: A dual-angle pole-mount socket allows the speakers to tilt 10° for more uniform audience coverage.
