Get free shipping and the guaranteed lowest price on the JBL PRX712 12" Two-Way Active Main System/Floor Monitor at Sam Ash Direct.

Two user selectable EQ settings are provided to optimize the system for either application. With a dual socket pole mount the PRX712 is a perfect match with a PRX718XLF subwoofer, offering a high performance self-powered sub/sat system.

The PRX712 is comprised of a 12" Differential Drive® woofer, a 2408H-1, 37.5 mm (1.5 in) annular polymer diaphragm, neodymium compression driver mounted to a 90° by 50° horn, all driven by 1500 watt Class-D digital power amplifier. Sophisticated DSP is at the core of a fully featured input section, providing user selectable system EQ, protection, input sensitivity selection, cross-over functionality, dynamic limiting and discrete component optimization.

The amplifier input panel offers XLR or ¼ inch jack compatibility and a sensitivity switch provides extra flexibility, making it possible to connect literally any sound source without using a mixer. Signal present and limiter lights indicate the system status and assist in setting the optimum level via the level control knob.

All PRX700 cabinets are built from a combination of 25mm (on the top and bottom for added rigidity) and 18mm, strong, light-weight poplar plywood made structurally sound with tongue and groove joints. All PRX700 Series cabinets are protected by JBL’s tour proven DuraFlex™ finish. Grilles are made from dent-resistant 16 gauge steel and handles are made from light-weight glass-filled nylon for added strength and durability. All M10 suspension points are constructed from 14 gauge steel and have been tested with a yield-strength of 1000 lbs. each.

Features:
  • 135 dB peak SPL
  • 12" Differential Drive® low-frequency driver for low-distortion and higher SPL
  • 1.5" diameter next generation JBL neodymium compression driver
  • JBL designed waveguide for accurate coverage
  • Efficient Class-D amplifier technology
  • Optimized EQ for monitor or front-of-house applications
  • DSP input section, crossover, dynamic limiting, component optimization, selectable system EQ
  • Line level and direct microphone input capability
  • Professional XLR-1/4" combination inputs, RCA inputs, and XLR loop-through
  • Multi-angle enclosure for main PA or floor monitor applications
  • Integrated 36 mm pole mount socket with angle down tilt
  • Injection molded handle with backing cup for easy transport
  • Integrated M10 suspension points for easy setup
  • Lightweight poplar plywood cabinets made structurally sound with tongue and groove joints and protected by JBL’s tour proven DuraFlex™finish
  • Cloth backed, dent-resistant 16 gauge steel grilles

          A pair of these on the floor or hanging overhead will really bring in da noise. I set these up in a medium size club and matched with the 15's produce a great sound. Great for hip hop rock or jazz. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

          Comments about JBL PRX712 12" Two-Way Active Main System/Floor Monitor:

          JBLs have been known in the music industry as work horses and the PRX series definitely holds up. Amazing sounds quality and it is built to last. The PRX712 is perfect for any venue.

                The JBL PRX712 12" Two-Way Active Main System/Floor Monitor is a very awesome speaker. You can use it as both your main speakers or monitors for your band. The highs are crisp and the lows are boomy. If this is too weak, you can always check out the 15"!

                Comments about JBL PRX712 12" Two-Way Active Main System/Floor Monitor:

                The JBL PRX712 12" Two-Way Active Main System/Floor Monitor can be used for acoustic gigs solo, duo and trio as well as for smaller band gigs without worrying if there's going to be enough power. These speakers can get very loud while sounding fantastic at the same time. The bottom line is these speakers sound very very good, tight and punchy, have a wood enclosure, look great and have plenty of power. This is a real hands-on product review from Rick @ Sam Ash Phoenix.

                        I LOVE THE PRX700 LINE. ITS A LITTLE HEAVIER THAN THE OLDER PRX600 SERIES BUT SOUNDS MUCH BETTER AND THE EXTRA MIXER FEATURES AND INPUTS ARE GREAT.

                        JBL has always made a well built dependable cabinet that sounds great, and he new prx 700 series is no exception. The 712 is a fantastic well balanced main and a killer 12" monitor. Very lightweight and portable as well. Overall, a great product from a company who never lets you down.

                              Lots of power from theses lightweight speakers. 1500 watts of peak power through a single 12 inch speaker. Great bass response as well as highs and mids. Poplar plywood cabinets for solid, deep resonance. Great speakers for flying- integrated M10 suspension system and they weigh just over 42 lbs.

                                    Like the 15in series PRX, the 712 is basically the same quality only a smaller pricepoint and a 12in driver. Sounds great and I love using these
