I use this for karaoke and it sounds amazing !
I am a solo singer/guitar player. I have recorded at the Record Plant in NY on numerous occasions, done studio work in La at Sunset sound, Producers Workshop, CBS studios and just about every high end studio in NY. I now go out to play for some friends who own various clubs in the area. I needed something easy to carry, easy to assemble and with great sound. I was willing to sacrifice the portability if need be, however, I came across the JBL Eon one and was delighted by the sound and portability. It is not a system one would use in a large hall, ie. Over 500 people, however, for smaller clubs and coffee houses it is a great design. It took no more than five minutes from taking it out of the box to being ready to play. I use an acoustic with a Fischman pickup and the system provides a wonderfully balanced tone. The vocals, using a Sure 58, are very clean and one can set the cabinet as close as six inches away without incurring feedback. But the proof came a few days later when I performed at a local club which got a bit rowdy mid way though the evening. The system cut through beautifully with no distortion. Now, while the connecting poles seem a bit cheesy, they do their job, allowing one to use all three or only the high end connector. I would recommend getting an outboard reverb unit since the one included in this system is not the greatest. To sum it up, if you need an easy to carry (under 60 pounds) sound system that competes with EV and Bose, gets the job done, take a good hard look at the JBL Eon One.
This is a really nice linear system. This is my second favorite linear system a step down from the EV. The overall sound quality is awesome. It has a perfect amount of bass response and a good balanced treble. If wanting to manipulate the sound, it has bass and treble knob to turn them up or down for each channel. This guy can break down into 4 parts and it has slots for all the parts which makes it very portable. Very nice, and well made speaker. Well done job to JBL.

We've set up in several gigs since we got this a month ago. It has sounded full and easily adapts to venues of different sizes. I run the A&H ZEDi and just xlr into the Eon using the ZEDi to do the mix. My wife's voice, piano and our background tracks. The JBL sits behind her and just off center and works for her monitor. Never any feedback problems. She is hooked.
These are great! I use 2 for larger venues.I use a Mackie unpowered mixer for the Mike's and run stereo out of the mixer. Very powerful with the mixer preamps,nice full bass sound also.
I've never put time to put a review for any product in my life, but I had to for this utter piece of junk. So firstly, when I unboxed this brand new speaker, plugged it in, then switched on the power, I saw a big spark occur internally on the back visible through the grill. I thought this thing is probably defective and burnt out now. But I moved forward and it seemed to still work so I rationalized the spark may have just been some first time use ESD event or something and continued with my evaluation. Then as I tried music through bluetooth. It played ok. But I noticed how scooped out the sound quality was. Highs and lows, but no mids whatsoever, so it sounds quite awful. Also no dispersion at all. Their patent pending on the vertical array design is laughable cause it's quite stupid. Bose got it right with their horizontal dispersion. At this point all these negatives weren't official deal breakers yet. Next I tried plugging in line-in keyboards and there was almost no volume at all. I had to switch the inputs to mic-level as a work around to get a decent volume out, but this is not a proper solution. I spent almost hour of trying different cables and other stuff to resolve just to make sure it's the speaker that's the problem, and it was. So even though I have 45 days, within an hour I already decided to return this junk. Now here's the worst part. The poorly designed or manufactured press fit of the columns put me in the emergency room. When trying to disassemble the columns, the column was too tight of press fit, and after it finally gave out it hit me in he head causing a huge bloody gash that cost me hundreds of dollars in the emergency room to get stitches and a permanent scar on my face. I'm thanking god I didn't lose my eye at least. I'm a conscientious and technical person, and I didn't misuse the product in any way whatsoever. Translation: this literally can happen to anybody! My recommendations if you want a line array: if you're priority is quality: go with Bose L1 if you're priority is portability and budget: go with LD Maui Forget JBL. I was a longtime JBL user, over 15yrs. I firsthand see all the quality downturns that I could make a long list of. This product was my last chance I gave to the JBL brand speakers.

this is an awesome set up. its easy to use quick to set up perfect for small gigs works great for the mobile dj of kj This has been a hands on review by Carlos at Sam Ash Torrance.
Upon opening the JBL Eon One I realized it was double boxed, which is always appreciated. Second, before I took it out I was met by a large rugged looking handle and grill. As I lifted it out I found it was surprisingly lower-back friendly, ha ha. The assembly was very quick and simple. Three snaps and you're done! First thing I tested was the blue tooth connectivity. The connection held up well for a good 100 feet. I hooked up a mic as well, first I tried a beta87a but realized there was no phantom power but it wasn't a big deal. Then I tried a beta58, it sounded great. Very easy to use and good, solid, smooth knobs on the mixer. Then I had a guitar player friend of mine play on it for a while also. Everyone that was with us was impressed with it as well. I definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a great solution for a portable rig or conference setup. Bose, beware!

Anybody that needs a sound system should consider this piece of equipment, form musicians, DJ's, Karaoke singers, small churches, conference rooms, fitness clubs or just anybody with a Bluetooth device that needs a big sound. The mixer section has pretty much all connections to hook up everything from guitars keyboards, cd players, computers, telephones, etc..
Awesome sounding compact PA system. 380 of power! Great for most small venues or even small outdoor gigs. Easy to use and set up! You don't need a lot of time to plug it in and get it going since the unit already has everything you need built into it. Great sound quality! Clear highs and great sounding bass that you can feel as well as hear. One of the best PA's in it's category.
