625W high-performance system with onboard 3-channel mixer and efficient Class D technology.

WIth the EON 515XT, JBL has extended the reach of the current EON technology by improving input sensitivity, lowering the noise floor, adding user selectable EQ control and re-voicing the system for peak performance and enhanced audio precision. The intuitive onboard 3-channel mixer with adjustable EQ assures that you're in control of the sound and the sturdy construction and superior ergonomic design will guarantee a lifetime of reliability and simplicity. Put it all together and the EON 515XT is the toughest, smartest and most impressive EON ever.

The EON 515XT's onboard mixer is perfectly suited to accommodate multiple input sources simultaneously. With 2 1/4"" TRS Phone jacks and 1 Neutrix combination jack that accepts an XLR or 1/4" TRS Phone plug, the mixer is capable of blending 3 discrete sources like a stereo keyboard and microphone or a CD/MP3 player and a microphone. The EON 515XT features a loop-through for routing the signal to another destination like an additional EON powered speaker, a recording device, or another mixer. With its global Bass and Treble controls, you can also tailor the sound to fit your unique needs.

EON 515XT represents the natural evolution of a product whose creators have been advancing the state of the art in professional audio for more than 60 years. With close to 1 million EON speakers in the world, it's safe to say it's a name you can trust.

    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.

    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.

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

      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.

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

        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!

          Nice sounding Lightweight Powered Speaker for the money; therefore a good value. The newer XT model has extended the Bass Range. Great for placing a speaker in places that have to be reached with a wireless.

            Great JBL design in a lightweight portable powered PA Speaker...I run a wide range of PA systems (small to large) and find these EONs very useful as remote monitors or for side-fills to my bigger set-up. Cost & performance make these speakers a very good purchase.

            Use these for smaller rooms that we might play in (100-150 cap), not good for larger rooms. They have a lot more low end than the old powered Mackie's that we were using and paired with a nice sub and it works just fine for our 4 piece band. We're able to mic up the kick drum, run the bass direct and there are no concerns with sound quality or overwhelming the system.

            One concern which was quickly remedied was that one of the speakers was not functioning when it arrived. MF sent a new one out and returning the defective one was very easy.

            connecting directly Microphones to this speaker did not work well, I had to use a preamp to boost the signal of the mic in order to equal or superate the sound that the directly connected guitar had, that is an incovenient somehow if you do not have a mic preamp. the unit does not accept mics with fantom power needs

Coupled with the powered sub and a good board the Eon 515XT's are perfect for club gigs and practice!!These are not toys. Do it right get the cases and everything else you'll need.
