Loud and light on both your back and wallet
JBL's economically priced IRX108BT powered PA speaker can blast out tremendous amounts of sound from a small, lightweight cabinet perfectly built for life on the road, and totally at home in an auditorium or fitness studio. JBL brought 70+ years of loudspeaker-building experience to designing their IRX Series of PA speakers with unprecedented amounts of output power and sound processing features.
Sound processing features
Four EQ presets optimize the sound for typical uses like speech or music, while a bass boost lets you emphasize the beat. Even cooler, you can apply automatic feedback suppression to fix those little squeals that pop up during a show. Engage the automatic ducking and the music will get turned down whenever someone makes an announcement through a microphone.
The IRX108BT features high-bandwidth Bluetooth 5.0 audio streaming, letting you play back your music with the highest quality possible. You can also wirelessly link two IRX Series speakers together and create a stereo PA system.
