Both components are driven by discrete channels in the 280-watt Class D integrated power amplifier. The input section contains all crossover functions, protection, and system EQ functionality making the EON315 a complete, self-contained PA system for solo acts.

I've been playing in bands for over 40 years, and the huge and heavy keyboard amp I'd been dragging to jobs had just become too much to deal with. I usually just bring a Nord C1 or Electro 3 and wanted an amp just as easy to move as those but able to put out volume enough to keep up with (or ahead of) a couple of guitar players with big scarey vintage tube amps. Anyways, this EON 315 is perfect for what I need. It can be painfully loud and perfectly clean sounding! It has limited features - one input, one volume, a 3 position EQ control, and a mic/line switch - but I just plug straight in and use the EQ controls on the instrument. If I want distortion, I use the overdrive on the instument. It sounds great with the Leslie sim for organ and the Wurlitzer and Rhodes sounds are perfect through it. I'm sure it would great with strings and acoustic piano and that stuff, but I don't use those sounds when I play out. It weighs 34 pounds and is built to be easily carried. I love it! If I ever do use more than one instrument, a small mixer will be a perfect for that.

shrill piercing treble, need a equalizer

Yes these do get loud, I will give them that. but in my pro opinion the sound is missing a lot of midrange and annoyingly, fatiguing and piercingly bright at 12k and above....Read complete review

Yes these do get loud, I will give them that. but in my pro opinion the sound is missing a lot of midrange and annoyingly, fatiguing and piercingly bright at 12k and above. It sounds as if jbl used a commercial fire alarm horn for a tweeter.
For music in loud applications like Djing in clubs is where this fatiguing shrillness is most noticeable. They can sound semi decent if you run them through a graphic equalizer.
The Behringer B215 is a much better sounding and equally capable speaker which costs less too, I would suggest you skip these despite the JBL name if you are looking for a full spectrum sound.

Comments about JBL EON315 15" 280 Watt Powered PA Speaker:

I bought a pair of these and they worked ok for 4 months, then the tweeter stopped working. I called JBL "customer service" and was put on hold for ever. then talked to a rep who sent me to a local rep who looked at then and straight up said JBL will not warrentee them. Then I started leaving messages for warranty support daily for A week no return answer yet. That's where I am now. This is the first time I have felt compelled to write a negative review of any product. I will stay away from JBL in the future, and would recommend others do the same.

Bad speaker - Bad customer service

By tolson86

from Cedar Rapids, IA

Comments about JBL EON315 15" 280 Watt Powered PA Speaker:

I bought a pair of these and they worked ok for 3 weeks, then the tweeter stopped working. I called JBL "customer service" and was put through to a voicemail box. I left my message hoping to get an RA #. I waited 2.5 weeks; no response. Then I started leaving messages for warranty support daily for 4 days. That's where I am now. This is the first time I have felt compelled to write a negative review of any product. I will stay away from JBL in the future, and would recommend others do the same.

I thought wrong

Comments about JBL EON315 15" 280 Watt Powered PA Speaker:

Well - let me just warn all the people out there that want to buy these just because they are JBLs. Youre going to be very dissapointed. These things clip like no other and honestly wont get much louder than your average Hi-Fi speaker. Do yourself a favor and skip these unless youre just looking for replacement doorstops. The EON 515 are a different story but these are horribly underpowered.

The Industry Standard

By ARC10U

from NY

Comments about JBL EON315 15" 280 Watt Powered PA Speaker:

After using these for quite some time I have to admit JBL really has the gold medal with this one. The build quality is superb and very resistant to wear and tear, the bass response is superb, the weight is absolutely amazing, and most of all the price is right. Given the 15" woofer the low end is really noticable at lower SPLs. At higher SPLs they can be a bit harsh but overall this is as good as it will get for the price. They have been durable and problem free - even given how much I push them at events. It dosent suprise me that JBL invented the active speaker in 1995 and this 3rd Generation EON lives up to its pedigree.

JBL EON315

By ActiveDJ

from Wilmington NC

Comments about JBL EON315 15" 280 Watt Powered PA Speaker:

I have a mobile DJ company and I've been hauling around some Peavey SP-2Gs and a power amp for years. I finally decided to look into the JBL EON because of the weight of them. I bought a pair of JBL EON 315 and I think they sound awesome! A week later I bought the JBL EON 518 Sub just for a little more low end. I now feel that I have the ultimate PA set up. If your looking for sound quality in a light weight package... This speaker is for you!!!
