JBL PRX812W Reviews

The Joe Pesci Of PA Speakers

By Connor
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2020-06-15

If I was to summarize these boxes in one phrase, I'd say they punch well above their weight class. These small 12-inch speakers have enough output to rival that of individual line-array elements that I've also worked with. They sound great in the right room, but need a tiny bit of EQing to get the most out of in larger rooms that they realistically are not designed for, but still work well in. I tested these out in a room of ~450 capacity, while empty, and even then it was filling the room with uncomfortable levels of sound without limiting. Now I'm not going to say these things are comparable to D&B Ys or L-Acoustics KIVAs, but as a starter PA for rooms and stages with up to 150-200 people, paired with the right subs, these things are bloody impressive.
