JBL EON612 Overview

  • 1Description

The JBL EON612 is a two-way 1000 W peak Class-D amplifier driven live sound reinforcement speaker that combines a wave-guided, high-frequency driver with a 12" woofer in a bass-reflex cabinet for greater low-frequency extension. The speaker was designed from the ground up by JBL engineers to leverage the latest advancements in cabinet materials, acoustic science, transducer design, and integrated Bluetooth controllable DSP.

The combination of the 300W peak powered wave-guided high-frequency transducer and the 700W peak powered 12" woofer with bass-reflex ports delivers a frequency range of 48 Hz to 20 kHz at -10 dB and a frequency response of 57 Hz to 20 kHz at +3 dB over a 100 x 60° coverage pattern with a Max SPL output of 126 dB for a wide range of applications. The coverage pattern of the Image Control Waveguide is designed to match the high frequencies, crossover point, and low frequencies to deliver a more consistent on-axis and off-axis response. This allows the speaker to sound the same to members of the audience throughout the coverage pattern.

Inputs are provided on dual combination mic or line XLR-1/4" input connectors with individual signal gain knobs and a master volume knob for the overall level. An XLR loop-thru allows you to route the signal to additional EON600 series speakers.

To enable fine tuning of the speaker in different acoustic environments, the speaker includes a built in DSP processor with Bluetooth v.4 control through an iOS or Android app. The app provides wireless control over the speaker's 5-band parametric EQ, saving and recalling presets, and adjusting the master volume.

A single button on the back of the speaker allows you to physically switch between four different modes: Main, Monitor, Speech, and Sub for when incorporating a dedicated subwoofer. Additional controls include a button for engaging the built-in EQ, disabling the speaker's front LED indicator light, and configuring Bluetooth control.

The speaker is designed to work in a variety of configurations including on its side as a floor monitor, vertically as a floor monitor, suspended from above, placed on a tripod stand, placed on a pole mount on top of a subwoofer, or stacked on top of one another using their molded index feet.

JBL EON612 Reviews

EON612 - 12- Two-Way Multipurpose Self-Powered Sound Reinforcement Speaker is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from They sound great Purchased 5 for mains and monitor use (DJ and live sound). The sound is very linear and not harsh like some horns can be. Bass is punchy, not loose at all. I haven't paired them with the subs yet, but I'm sure they'll be great. A couple of the cabs have a little knock if you shake them, probably a loose wiring harness to one of the drivers. It doesn't worry me and does not happen when set up and playing ( I only hear it when I'm moving them around to mount on poles, etc.). The back panel gets a bit warm under operation, but I suspect that it's part of the heat sink so, OK.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good speaker but with quality issues First off B&H is an amazing company with outstanding customer service.  JBL on the other hand needs serious improvement. The first set of 612 had something rattling inside (most likely cable harness). I was advised by JBL customer service (after countless hours on the phone) to replace them. B&H quickly send out replacements to find out that new pair rattles too.  Called JBL again and asked to place  a quality complain to engineering.  I’m planning to find a local JBL service to open them up and understand what needs to be done to correct the issue. My 612 are made in Mexico.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! I use these with a Xenyx board as a PA. Great sound and easy to setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good at a very reasonable price I purchased to use these as a backyard patio speaker and work great, clear voice, ok on bass(if turned up) but will need a sub (I just don’t use it that loud) the Bluetooth ONLY controls the equalizer and NOT the volume and wasn’t a big deal because I have an extra bt I plugged into the male plug. Nice for the price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price, great sound I ordered two of these for my patio. It sounds like a dj is in the yard. I run it off my watch. I also ordered the 18inch sub. It says Bluetooth but only runs the eq. Need a Bluetooth receiver to run tablet or phone streams. I received a message from B&H in them for 250.00 each. Didn’t disappoint. Thanks to B&H

Can I use this with a laptop for video sound I am projecting?
Asked by: Tracy M.
The speaker can be used with your laptop. I would suggest that you also purchase a DSAN LSP-1 Laptop SoundPort, B&H # DSLSP1, which will convert the signal from 3.5mm stereo mini male to 3-Pin XLR male.

Is there a tripod hole in the bottom?
Asked by: Anonymous
The JBL EON 612 features a standard 35mm ( 1 3/8 ) pole socket on the bottom panel for mounting on a speaker stand.
