I bought 4 of these cabs to use as a traveling sound system (with other JBL gear) to be used at each Regional Function for our Church. Each of these events include the attendance of 500-700 people. With this many in attendance, many musicians stand in front of these speakers. I have heard compliments like, "I have never been able to hear so well..." and "...those little monitors put out such a huge sound..."There have been instances when setting up in smaller churches that I have left my mains in the trailer, and used these cabs as mains. I pushed them with a QSC 2450, and a 31 band FBQ EQ. The bass is thick, mids are clean and highs cut through like no other.If you've been searching for a HOTTT cab in a small box, your search is over.JBL. Classic, predictable, and reliable.

I was sceptical at purchasing the JBL JRX112M as I always used the Yamaha Club Series for the past 10 years and have never had a problem. But you cant beat the price of the JBL's, so I bought them. Testing them side by side with the Yamaha SM12V, they are muddy and your sound is "colored". They are also not as loud as the Yamaha's and dont have the vocal presence. If you are an ametuer and want a cheap price, the JBL's will work fine. If you want clearity, better components, duribility, volume, and a non colored sound-the Yamaha Club Series are the way to go.

Great sound

By manwithhorn

from Biloxi, MS

Comments about JBL JRX112M 12" 2-Way Stage Monitor:

I've had a pair for over 5 years - using them primarily as stage monitors in a horn band playing 2-4 times a month. I also use them as mains when I do DJ gigs. I've set them up and turned off the huge mains we normally use with the band, and everyone says that the sound coming from these two speakers is better and clearer than the tower of Peavey and Yamaha 15's we use!I just did another DJ gig and they were the only speakers I brought and the audience said they LOVED the sound of my rig! I'd have to agree.

Comments about JBL JRX112M 12" 2-Way Stage Monitor:

Good overall design. Handle and jacks placed right. Has 1/4" & speakon jacks. Strong grill. Really needs feet on bottom. Sound quality is not up to JBL standards. Would prefer coating or tolex instead of carpet. I may need to upgrade drivers. It's as if they designed it 90% and then went to lunch. For the price l'll keep it. The older TR series was better.

Best value for the $$$

By Rickenbecker

from Austin

Comments about JBL JRX112M 12" 2-Way Stage Monitor:

I bought these as monitors, and they blew me away in terms of clarity and output. Recently I used them as small mains for some church gigs, and I remain blown away. I wouldn't call them the most efficient boxes ever made, you need some power to wind them up. But they will reward you with pristine upper end and lows/mids that do not get muddy. You can't go wrong for the price.

Get it! ... NO... Get them!!!

By pdbhusker

Comments about JBL JRX112M 12" 2-Way Stage Monitor:

Get it? no? get them!You will not be disappointed with this JBL product. The JRX112M is very well built and can totally handle the job of both ?stage monitor? as well as ?mains? (in tight stage situations). I own two JRX112m?s and I use them for everything. Trust me? if you?re getting a hum (like a fellow reviewer)? check your PA and set-up? my experience is that it is NEVER the speaker?s fault. Buzzes are always within the signal? (before the speaker)? ALWAYS check your set-up? and gear? it is usually something as simple as a cable is not plugged in? My point? When purchasing ?high-end? speakers? the buzz is usually elsewhere. I get tired of an inexperienced sound-man coming up with the wrong conclusion. IMHONow back to this speaker? get it? it?s priced right? it?s a bit heavy to carry? it?s not class D technology? but I promise you? the warmth and power that you?ll hear from stage is well worth it. I?ve owned mine for 6 months now and gig at least once a week? and have never worried about the JRX112M not pulling it?s weight on stage.I also own a couple JRX115?s and they are awesome as well. Trust me? JBL products will not let you down.

I love JBLs

By SloppyDrummer

Comments about JBL JRX112M 12" 2-Way Stage Monitor:

Finally jumped into the higher end arena with these JBLs. Sound is sweet and crisp yet the mid and bass roar are right there. Very power hungry, so I drive them as mains with the new Crown 2000 with 475 watts @ 8 ohms each - beautiful. Speakon and 1/4' inputs are handy. I was looking to add a JBL subwoofer, since they are 'only' 12", but I'm still in awe of the current sound.

Buzzing

By Rock'n'Roller-AJWcB

from Nevada

See all my reviews

Comments about JBL JRX112M 12" 2-Way Stage Monitor:

Everyone keeps writing how they are the "BEST". I bought one a few months ago and as soon as I brought it home and pluged it it for the first time, I had a loud buzz. So I took it back and they pluged it it and they agreed it did buzz so they replaced it. and I brought the new one home and it didnt buzz. Ive only used it a few times and this one is starting to buzz also?? Ive had my mains for about 7 years and they are as quiet as you can get, but Im not really sure about these monitors?? Serious!

Oh Yeah!

By Charles Edmondson

from Montgomery, Al

Comments about JBL JRX112M 12" 2-Way Stage Monitor:

Bought two of these just recently for use with my acoustic guitar solo act. I mostly use one for front of house and the other for my monitor. These babies are so clean-perfect for what I need in medium size clubs. Vocals are so crisp and guitar sounds nice. Played outside last weeknd at the lake with a percussionist who miked through my rig and used both of them for the mains. I was pleasantly surprizied at how well they handled the volume for that venue. Sure, if you are running kick drums, bass, keys etc.. at that volume you would want 15" frames but for what I do, these are a great bargain. The two option tripod mounts are nice too.

Junk JBL

By Mr. man

from maryland

Comments about JBL JRX112M 12" 2-Way Stage Monitor:

Harsh highs, no lows, cheap components and over all bad design. JBL really did a bad job with this one. The horn blows up if you look at it wrong. I don't abuse my gear, but these things wont even take daily usage. I highly recommend you pass on these and pick up some Yamaha club series stuff instead. Just because it says JBL doesn't mean it's good...

JBL JRX112M

By Rocker-znFQd

from Madison, WI

See all my reviews

Comments about JBL JRX112M 12" 2-Way Stage Monitor:

Wow, you'd have to be one picky son-of-a-gun to not like these. I'm on year 3 (about 80 gigs) of using them both as mains in small clubs and monitors outdoors and in larger clubs with no issues at all. A little EQ'ing and these sound great. As mains they are loud and clear with enough low end to easily get you through a club gig, which most of us actual gigging musicians play (no, you don't need to mic the drums in a small club, we can hear you just fine). To anyone who thinks these aren't enough remember, these are not 15" speakers, they are 12". Sometimes we ask a piece of equipment to do something it wasn't made to do and get dissapointed by it. These are very good MONITORS and good small mains. If you want the "chest thump", get subs and drive all the customers out of the bar because you're too loud. Remember, they haven't been bashing their ear drums with too much bass-they can hear just fine.

Club Band Use

By Live Sound Fanatic

from Livingston, TN

See all my reviews

Comments about JBL JRX112M 12" 2-Way Stage Monitor:

I have two of these speakers I use for monitors and two of the 15" JBL JRX's. These speakers are awesome. I play in a four piece band and use a Carvin RX1200 head to power these speakers. I have never had any problems. These speakers really cut through the mix. Crystaly clear highs, nice mids that jump right out at you, and bass response that does the trick. I really like them. Kudos to JBL for a professional monitor at a price a working musician can afford!

Great Sounding Monitors! Buy them...

By Chris

Comments about JBL JRX112M 12" 2-Way Stage Monitor:

Just ordered a 4th one of these for our band. couldn't be happier. Only minor gripes are (1)lack of tweeter adjustment, (2)carpet covering w/o foot rests allows carpet covering to get very messy as it picks everything up off the floor when speaker is positioned on side (as it should be)as floor monitor, and (3)carpet covering is already begining to peel off at glue seem at corner of one of the speakers.

Huge disappointment from JBL

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about JBL JRX112M 12" 2-Way Stage Monitor:

Absolutely a disappointment from JBL. The JRX 112 is terrible for usage as a monitor. Frequency response is so uneven that agressive EQ is mandatory to even reach usable volume without feedback. Bass response is non existent, and the comp. driver is harsh and painful. JBL is cheapening their brand by making these cabs. Spend the extra 100$ and go with EV's SX250 mons. Much more even freq response, better (real life) power handling, and NO RAT FUR. I even like the 250s over EVs zx5, which is more expensive. These JRXs are definitely not worth 300, even a yamaha club is a better choice.

JBL JRX 112m

By Raphie

from Canada

See all my reviews

Comments about JBL JRX112M 12" 2-Way Stage Monitor:

Bought these for my niece to use with a soundcraft Gigrac 1000st, and the reason was they serve a dual purpose; the first is to use as monitors in the small rehearsal area in the basement, and secondly to use as pole mounted FOH speakers at performances.The sound is clear and uncolored, (using the gigrac and a shure sm58 mic for vocals), and I'd highly recommend them for monitors alone or used as pole mounted speakers. The style of music my niece plays is alternative, and it sounds very good through these speakers/monitors. They are also light enough (@43 lbs) to be moved by a teenager which is also a point I considered!

Comments about JBL JRX112M 12" 2-Way Stage Monitor:

I bought a pair of these as monitors - and discovered that they work well as mains for small gigs. Nice tight lows, crisp highs. Excellent speaker for the price. I will definitely be buying some more of these.
