JBL adds to its EON ONE range with a new compact speaker
The EON ONE Compact is the latest addition to the JBL EON ONE range of portable PA systems. It is an all-in-one system featuring Bluetooth connectivity, designed to deliver high-quality audio on the road with a rechargeable battery that reportedly lasts up to 12 hours.
Weighing approximately 8kg, the 8-inch EON ONE Compact speaker features a built-in carry handle and a range of inputs for microphones, instruments and other sources, as well as a four-channel mixer with on-board dbx EQ and Lexicon effects. The Bluetooth connectivity allows for music to be streamed and connection to an iOS and Android app provides control functionality. Multiple speakers can also be linked via the Bluetooth connection. The EON ONE Compact produces up to 112dB of output from 37.5Hz to 20kHz. A standard IEC cable reportedly charges the unit in less than 2.5 hours or six hours during use. An integrated pole mount allows the unit to be elevated in PA applications. Two combination XLR/TRS inputs with professional-grade preamps and +48V phantom power can be used for microphones, while a dedicated ¼-inch high-impedance input is ideal for guitars, bass and acoustic instruments with pickups.
