High-Powered Sound Reinforcement System with Wireless App Control
With the JBL PRX800-series, we’ve channeled 70-years of design experience for the world’s largest stages, to create the loudest portable speakers in their class. At JBL, we believe great speakers are more than just loud—so PRX800 are engineered for clear, detailed response—even at peak SPLs. With tour grade components along with strict product validation including JBL’s100-hour full power testing, PRX800 are rugged enough to keep performing for the long haul. And with built-in Wi-Fi, the PRX-Connect app, and the new V2 firmware update, you’ll set up and experience the best sound PRX800 has to offer, faster than ever.
The Loudest Portable Speakers In Their Class Engineered For Clear, Detailed JBL Sound
For over 70 years, we’ve invested more into R&D than any other speaker company and PRX800 is no exception. Extraordinary volumes as high as 138 SPL, delivered from integrated 1500-watt Class-D power amplifiers and custom engineered JBL drivers, make PRX800 the most powerful AND efficient loudspeaker systems in their class. Patented JBL Differential Drive™ woofer technology reduces magnet mass while increasing power handling, keeping PRX800 remarkably lightweight while still capable of delivering pristine audio. Combined with integrated Crown DSP and tunings—and dbx Type IV™ limiting that eases the system back to a safe levels when any frequency band is at limit—you can feel confident that your sound will be clear, accurate and uncompressed, even at high volumes. An innovative variable-speed fan activates only when needed for ultra-quiet operation. And the speakers are tuned for enhanced bass and smooth off-axis behavior to ensure impressive sound throughout the venue.
Tour-grade Durability with the Flexibility For Any Gig
No matter the application, from bands, DJs, houses of worship, corporate gigs—to the toughest tours, we used our live-sound experience to ensure that the PRX800 series performs flawlessly night after night. PRX800 speakers are built to withstand demanding tour schedules with the finest construction materials, including rugged all-wood cabinets, tour-proven DuraFlex™ finish and dent-resistant 16-gauge grilles. While they’re built like a tank, the latest 3d modeling techniques enabled us to do more with less and keep PRX800 as light as a feather—as low as 40 lbs/18 kg. Grab PRX800 speakers by their ergonomically balanced handles and you’ll find them surprisingly easy to load in and out. A universal power supply means you can use PRX800 in performances worldwide. One settings change will transform a PRX800 from a top to a wedge for stage monitoring. And JBL’s renowned quality assurance testing regimen—from drop tests to running each loudspeaker prototype at full volume for 100-hours straight before any design goes to manufacturing—ensures reliable operation in even the most extreme environments.
Complete and Convenient Wireless Control
Sometimes it’s just not convenient to adjust the controls behind a speaker. With the new V2 software update, PRX800 defaults to the most common user settings, providing you impressive performance right out of the box. For fine-tuning, PRX Connect for Android and iOS tablets connects wirelessly to every speaker, offering full control over the powerful built-in DSP. Walk around the venue during sound check and se the 8-band EQ, speaker delay, mute, gain and more to make sure your audience hears great sound from every corner of the room.
