Exceeds ExpectationsIf you want rock concert sound in a lightweight easy to handle package this is the speaker for you. I think this design is going to put a severe hurt on the competition.
Mate a pair of them up to a DriveRack PX and calibrate and you have a sound system that is hard to beat under $2000.
Has road case accessories that make them even easier to tote around and will offer a protection to make these drivers last a lifetime with proper use and care.

Air Cannons5 stars! Blown away like the air cannon on Myth Busters used to blow out a candle from 100' away. The sound is so clear, with the right music, she might not even mind. Major high fidelity dB SPL. 625 watts of clean power weighing in at a mere 30 pounds really is an engineering marvel. Take 2 and call me in the morning.

Fastest Shipping Ever!!!My wife kept buggin' me this morning to hurry up, and get out of the shower. Finally, I said, "What's the problem. Are you worried about me draining the hot water tank?" She said, "I thought you might like to see the speakers you ordered yesterday afternoon." "WHAT?" She said, "They're in our living room now." No way... less than 24 hour delivery. We've been using the speakers all day in the back yard. The sound quality is amazing, and we could be heard a block away with the gain pot set to 2. That's a lot of high fidelity dBSPL. Couldn't be happier. Thanks

Great Sounding but not overly loud compared to my previous speakers.I am amazed by the sound of these cabinets. Everything is crisp, clear and punchy with great bass response. The only reason I couldn't give it a full five stars was the 625 watt power rating claims by JBL. My old cabinets, a pair of Carvin LM15A's are rated at 325 watts but yet they are twice as powerful as these JBLs. Still scratching my head over that one. I am able to get the volumes I'm used to but to accomplish the same amount of headroom with my outboard mixer, I need to have the JBL level controls wide open. Maybe manufacturers use a different rating method than when my previous cabs were made. Other than that, sound quality and nice light weight make these cabinets winners. However, I think rating these cabs at 300 watts instead of 625 watts would be generous at best!

Great Active SpeakerHave used previous generation JBL EONs in our small church as stage monitors and also as mains and they produce some incredible sound without need for separate power amps. Based on that experience I bought the new JBL EON515XT to use in a portable PA for small to medium sized gigs with a small Mackie mixer with built-in effects for vocals and acoustic guitar. Great! Lot's of power and tons of dynamic range plus very lightweight and portable.

Mighty MiteI'm gigging regularly as a solo singer/guitarist, using backing tracks. Been a performing pro since 1965. Recently purchased a Roland BA-330, hoping to greatly reduce load-in/load-out. Good little unit, but the Roland can't easily handle noisy saturday night venues. Now, with the addition of 2 carrying lbs, and another $82 spent, I can handle virtually any venue I'm likely to play. I can now gig with the smallest kit I've ever used, with supreme confidence that I'm putting out pristine sound, more head-room and SPL than I'm likely to ever need. Great job, JBL! (Epilogue - trading in the BA-330 on a GR-55 Synth pedal...)

JBL EON515XT is a superior productI just received and started using my new JBL EON515XT and have found it to be a superior product with a magnificent sound quality. My Yamaha keyboard sounds very full and professional through this speaker. I highly recommend it for all performance needs, even large venues. It is an attractive unit and can be very easily transported. I am very grateful to Mr. Alan Finkbeiner for his guidance and assistance in selecting this outstanding product.
