From Our Research Team:
JBL Quality - Incredible Value!With the cost conscious user in mind, JBL delivers the JRX100 series!
JBL Quality Design
A sophisticated, advanced network topology design is utilized in JRX100 models to ensure quality performance. To minimize distortion due to coil saturation, heavy gauge wire is used for inductors and SonicGuard high-frequency driver protection guards against damage caused by inadvertent overpowering of the system. All full-range models feature NeutrikŪ Speakon and 1/4" input connectors.
Constructed To Take A Beating
All JRX100 series models are constructed of carpet-covered, 3/4" MDF - a material that is structurally and acoustically superior to the particleboard that is used by many competitive products. To ensure durability, JBL constructs these enclosures with advanced adhesives and closely mechanically spaced fasteners, while competitive systems typically rely on glue. Non-resonant, all metal handles are used and an 18 gauge, full metal grille protects the drivers. All JRX100 models have passed the same 100-hour, full rated-power torture test that JBL high-end touring systems must survive.
The dual 15" two-way model, JRX125, fulfills the increasing market demand for dual 15" full-range configurations. Designed as a "quasi three-way" single-box system, the upper woofer covers lows and mids while the bottom woofer uses a lower crossover frequency and covers only lows. This design maintains the midrange coherence and clarity of a single driver system while also providing the additional low-frequency performance that is the reason for a dual 15" two-way system to exist.

PASSED TEST FROM HARD CRITIC
by MICHAEL from COCOA FLORIDAI feel very qualified to rate and review DJ products. We own Florida's largest DJ company and are 25 states into our nationwide expansion. I bought a used pair of these today for the shows I do person... read more [+]ally and took my own rack with QSC amp, a Shure SM58 mic, and 1 of my EAW 315Bs (the best speakers I have ever heard) for a comparison. I took 3 CDs to test them with; Dancing Fantasy (Smooth Jazz) for the highs, Madonna for the Mids, and Santana for the lows. Before playing the music I sanG some Zep for highs, Tears for Fears for mids, and John Lee Hooker for lows and they passed with flying colors. When I played the CDs I played 1 minute each of 3 songs I pre-selected, again they passed. Next I played Santana "Sam Pa Ti" and EQ'd to take out all the bass, then took everything out except the bass, then took out the bass and the trebs. Again they passed with flying colors. The negative from the sound is that the 15s overpower the tweets

Music Background: DJ
Now for the big test... I set the EQ back to where I have been playing my EAWs and swapped out the 125 on the right channel and put an EAW on a tripod right above the 125. I put "Sam Pa Ti" on again and cranked it up very loud. The EAWs definitely put out better highs (I upgraded the tweets to Selenium 200 watts from Parts Express) but the mids and lows on the 125s blew the EAWs away!!! Even though the 125s lost the battle of the highs they were much more than acceptable for use as a mobile DJ.
When I went to look at these I went in with the idea that if they were somewhat close to the EAWs I would buy them and I have to say that they are better suited for my use.
I will be applying metal corners, upgrading the tweets from Parts Express, replacing the plastic feet with rubber, adding 2 fixed casters to the bottom rear, and a handle on the rear top.
Every review I have read (over 100 before I agreed to see these) from owners of these speakers except 1 was very positive. The one complaint everybody seemed to agree on was the weight. Let me tell you about heavy! How about lifting 70 pounds 5' high to get them on a tripod, then lifting them off after the gig? Now that's heavy!!! With the caster/handle modification I am doing it allows you to use the handle like a wheel so you can just tip them against your vehicle, grab the bottom and slide them in and out. Did it before with a pair of 160 pound dual 18s I used to have and it worked great. So even though these weigh in at 24 LBs more than the EAWs, the lifting I'll be doing is actually a lot less!
The reviews on DJ forums from people that don't own them were pretty consistently negative. They are very anti dual 15. They recommend going with the tripod mounted 15s and a pair of subs. After hearing these speakers at the huge volume I played them at I have to say they are nuts! These are awesome speakers.
Even though I know I could spend a lot more money and get better sound, these are great speakers and I give them a 9! close [-]
One Word - Fantastic!

I'm sure that the "quasi three-way" crossover design has a lot to do with the sound of these speakers -- punchy and powerful.

If there's a downside to these speakers, it's that they're 4 ohm cabinets. I wish that JBL had used 16ohm woofers, and provided a pair of speakons for daisy-chaining. Though, with many of today's amps being stable into 2ohm loads, this may be a non-issue. My only other gripe is that they're covered in a glued-on felt carpet that easily pulls up at the seams.
If my sound truck were big enough, I'd buy another pair today! close [-]

by Sleepwalker from Springfield, ILThese are great "small club venue" PA speakers. I play in a Rock Band and they deliver, w/help via sub-woofer, a solid sound from high to low. If you dont use the subs, it may lack abit on the "thump"... read more [+] end, but actually they would do just fine on their own. They fit in a standard cars back seat, they are not real heavy, but seem solid. We got some "blems" but were pleasantly surprise that they looked almost "New". One of the plastic feet was cracked, but still functional. We plan on upgrading to rubber feet soon. The sound is great, they wont break the bank, and they have a good wide range. I recommend these highly !! close [-]
