Get free shipping and the guaranteed lowest price on the JBL EON 515XT Active Two-Way PA Cabinet at Sam Ash Direct.

It was 14 years ago that JBL introduced what was to become the de facto standard in self-powered, portable PA systems with the original EON Series. Today, JBL has raised the bar significantly with the latest incarnation of their famous EON series of active powered PA speakers. The new generation JBL EON 515XT is a 10” 2-way bass-reflex self-powered PA speaker with a built-in 3-channel mixer that is capable of filling a club-sized venue with spectacular sound.

Under The Hood:

Featuring the finest tour-tested components JBL has to offer, the EON 515XT features a 15” neodymium low frequency driver and 1” neodymium compression driver. A built-in 625-watt Crown Class D amplifier provides ample power yet is amazingly lightweight. The JBL EON 515XT weighs in at only 32.5 lbs making an extremely easy to lug, robust sounding system.

No Mixer Needed:

To further sweeten the deal, JBL has incorporated an innovative 3-channel mixer, built right into the back of the enclosure. There are 3 inputs including a XLR combo jack and two ¼” jacks. You can blend 3 separate audio sources simultaneously. When you engage the mic-preamp circuit, you can directly connect a microphone to the EON 515’s XLR input. All channels have their own input trim control. There are 3 preset EQ curves, (Boost/Flat/Cut), one perfectly tailored for your use, and are easily engaged at the touch of a button.

Take me to the gig!

To make transport and setup easy, JBL designed the EON 515XT enclosure employing multiple easy-to-grab handles with comfort rubber grips. Hoist it up on a speaker pole; insert it into the integrated pole socket, power up and you’re good to go! In addition, the multi-angle enclosure is designed to work as a main PA speaker or as a self-powered floor monitor.

Weighing in at only 32.5 lbs, the JBL EON 515XT strikes the perfect balance of clear, powerful audio reproduction and true portability.

The new JBL EON 515XT Active PA represents JBL’s commitment to audio excellence, ease of use, and outstanding sound quality.

    Comments about JBL EON 515XT Active Two-Way PA Cabinet:

    I stepped up to two 515XTs after three years with a pair of Samson XP200s...no contest obviously. These speakers, which I use during performances at different venues for my dance team, are amazing. The sound clarity is fantastic, and you can get great bass without it overwhelming the rest of the equalizing dials. One JBL speaker cost as much as the pair of Samsons, but well worth the improvement. Our first show after getting them, one of my cords failed and I didn't have a backup, so I lost one of the speakers prior to the show in a cavernous shopping mall. No problem....just one speaker filled the space with amazing sound and the clarity via my baseline Nady DKW-DUO mics was impressive. We pass the music through a Samson MDR624 mixer. We're not a high-dollar operation by any means, but investing in these speakers was absolutely worth it. They even look cool, and it makes our amateur group seem even more professional. Highly, highly recommend them.

    Comments about JBL EON 515XT Active Two-Way PA Cabinet:

    After a 4th floor walk-up gig carrying my older 47 lb. EONs, 4 passive JBL floor monitors and heavy Mackie amp, it was time to go lighter without sacrificing sound quality. Because of their light weight and good sound, these are the first PA speakers I've owned that I've hooked up in my basement to listen through between gigs. I use them in conjunction with a dbx DriveRack PX which smoothes the sound in that particular room, I then role off the highs somewhat (16K). I can listen to rock or classical through these and they sound like really good stereo speakers – that can play REALLY LOUD. This is a high compliment coming from a recovering audiophile.
