I bought a pair of these about a year ago, right after they first came out. They replaced a pair of EON 15's (1st Generation). I play in a folky-to-classic rock trio that typically plays smaller venues, but in the summer we play some outdoor venues where good solid coverage and excellent sound are a must. The oftentimes acoustic nature of our material dictates a natural well-balanced speaker. Clarity and accuracy in the vocals are very important as we do a whole lot of harmony singing. In our setup, the speaker must also handle the output of a very punchy kick and occasionally help out the bass guitar. So far, all I can say is it sounds like us. That's high praise from a former recording engineer and continual sound fussy.

In the smaller venues, just one of these is plenty, and with only one, we can kind of point it a bit away from whoever is writing the check. They'll still get good, balanced sound and we can play a little bit louder ;-) outdoors we have yet to even clome close to pushing the EONs to their limit. That was a big problem that we encountered with the original EON Generation 1's. Problem solved.

The light weight, ample power and flexible connections with global tone control are all pluses. We drive them with a Mackie mixer, so we don't use the multiple inputs. But other than taming some weird room acoustics, we've never had to touch the EQ on the speaker or the mixer and get just clean honest sound that can carry a kick with a surprising amount of punch. And my 5'4" wife can easily pick both of them up and tote them if she has to.

If you need gobs of bowel-loosening bass at very high volumes, you might want to add subs, but for the huge majority of uses, you can skip all that.

Light wieght, gobs of power, rugged construction (I've used these steadily for a year and they still look and work great), and a very reasonable price compared to whet you'd need to go threough with power amps, crossovers, etc. etc. This is a no-brainer.

The only drawback I can see is that, if you have a weak link someplace else in your system, the EON will show it up for you.

Additional anecdote: We recently did a TV show taping where we had to send a single feed to the audio board, with no foldback or way to hear what we sounded like in the control room. I set up our usual rig, but added my miked guitar amp and the bass to the mix. Then I used one EON off to the side, out of the shot, to set up the mix going to the house, using the loop-though connection on the EON. It produced a very trustworthy mix that wound up sounding great in the control room and subsequently on TV. Any studio engineer will tell you that the most important quality of a studio monitor speaker is that it be able to create mixes that translate well to other systems and situations. Even though the EON is not really meant for that, it did the job in this situation and saved what could have been a mess otherwise.

Well, it sounded like a good deal to me as an EON G2 15 user …keyboard stage monitor / amp. The 515XT has a higher power rating (625w) and is 14 pounds lighter than the G2.

Still the G2 sounds louder to me, and the XT does not have the vertical tilt back feature as the G2.

I used the 515XT on three shows. On the third show, it died on me. Powered up but no sound, leaving me high and dry during a gig. Now i have to deal with sending it back to JBL to be fixed and being without it for months.

Thank goodness I still have two EON G2s…they're a great keyboard stage speaker with plenty of headroom. And at about 8 years old , have long outlasted the new 515XT.

    Comments about JBL EON 515XT 15" Powered PA Speaker:

    I have 30+ years as a professional entertainer. JBL and Crown are two of my favorite combinations to achieve the quality of sound that I desire for my shows. Until recently I would have never considered a powered system but after the unexpected success with the smaller version EON 510's that I purchased for ceremony coverage I decided to give the larger 515XT's a try. The performance of this system exceeded my expectations by far! I'll be using these as my main tops for some time to come!

      Comments about JBL EON 515XT 15" Powered PA Speaker:

      Fantastic deal for the price. It is very loud, very clear, and the bass response is great. The 3 channel mixer is a nice option for a solo/simple duo act. Lightweight and easy to use. Plugged it in and fired it up, and it sounded great right out of the box. A few of these and your music will be heard everywhere.

      For the money, it doesn't get any better than this. Other speakers with similar power ratings are almost double the price (or more).

        Comments about JBL EON 515XT 15" Powered PA Speaker:

        I bought a [pair of these a few weeks ago and used them last week on a DJ gig. Speakers were very easy to set up and sounded great. About two hours into the gig, one of the speakers started popping very loudly. I disconnected the input signal, but the speaker began to hum loudly on it's own. Luckily I ALWAYS take backups along. I contacted Musician's friend about returning the faulty speaker and I was immediately given a return authorization for it. In fact, they shipped me a new speaker before I even returned the malfunctioning one. I received the new speaker within a few days and ,so far, no more problems. I could not be happier with their service. In fact, I just purchased a new EON 18s subwoofer to go with the EonXT 15's. Musicians Friend is a pleasure to do business with.

        I bought these in January. One of them stopped turning on for no reason. Took it to an authorized service center did warranty repair and now the sound is distorted. The other one broke soon after. It is still in the shop. I dont play these hard at all since they are mainly used for acoustic guitar and vocals. These speakers have been broken for the better part of the year since i bought them. Wish i could return them :(

                  I'm disappointed. I ordered the JBL Eon 515XT because I have other JBL cabinets (passive) and love them.

                  Took it to a gig Saturday to use as a monitor for my drummer. Plugged it in - pop! pop! pop! Then no power.

                  I guess mine might be a rare mfg defect, but I'm disappointed. Musician's Friend, as always, promptly and cheerfully refunded and I ordered a replacement (different brand).

                  It's a joy working with Musician's Friend. First class customer service.

                    Product was fine but it took them 1.5 months to get four items to me. They canceled the order twice for no reason then didn't send me everything I ordered. I called them to get the rest of the gear, they still didn't send me everything! To this day I still don't have everything I ordered. I will never use musicians friend again.

                      I used my JBL Eon 15 G2's for 12+ years with absolute satisfaction. So when I saw the JBL 515XT's on sale, I decided to grab a couple. So far, they are picking up where the G2's left off...except they are about 14 lbs. lighter! Also, the 515XT's control panel is at the bottom of the unit, instead of at the top...which is a great feature for short guys like me. I'm not convinced they are more powerful than the G2's though. But, for solo entertainment, they are plenty loud and should cover all that I require. As an aside, my Fender Blues Junior sounds awesome mic'd through these speakers. Lovin' it!

                      This unit was shipped very quickly. It would also shut off after about 30 seconds and since I know pro audio and things like "headroom" the speaker was found defective. The folks at Musicians Friend were incredible and the EON was back to them and a new EV (which I should have bought to begin with) was at my door in just a few days.
