The latest addition to the JBL Professional PRX Column Portable PA family is the PRX One all-in-one PA, targeting a range of portable and installed applications.

Presented in a compact package weighing 56lb (25.4kg), the system delivers 130dB full-bandwidth audio with consistent front-to-back throw using custom-engineered, 12-tweeter column array, featuring JBL AIM (Array Inumbration Mechanics) acoustic design; 12-inch bass-reflex woofer; and built-in 2kW (peak) class-D amplifier.

JBL Professional PRX OneThe set-up includes a suite of Lexicon and dbx processors, and eight customisable presets. Built-in effects include reverb, 8-band EQ, delay, compression, limiting, ducking, echo, sub synth and dbx DriveRack Inside technology featuring AFS Pro Automatic Feedback Suppression; Triple Tier DSP control offers multi-level user experiences based on knowledge level.

The Soundcraft-designed 7-channel, dual-mode digital mixer can be set to control either general mix functions or channel-strip functions, all manageable via a colour LCD or the new JBL Pro Control universal app. PRX One’s full-colour LCD screen provides access to all functions, and a convenient Setup Saver captures snapshots for easy recall.

Custom high-frequency transducers feature copper-capped pole pieces to reduce inductance, giving the transducers less power compression, for more natural performance without DSP. High-frequency performance is optimised down to 500Hz. PRX One’s acoustically optimised woofer delivers performance down to 35Hz without the need for DSP.

The new JBL Pro Connect universal app offers hands-on control over every PRX One feature, from mixing to DSP to Bluetooth functions. The app and the mixer are always in sync, eliminating guesswork about levels and settings. Users can access app-exclusive features including speaker grouping, delay tap tempo, and system snapshots.

PRX One allows room to grow a system. Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity allows remote control of up to ten units using the JBL Pro Connect app, and an XLR Thru output offers analogue expansion with the ability to time-align multiple speakers, with up to 100ms of delay per speaker. An optional bracket and adapter allow the array to be wall or truss-mounted independently of subwoofer for permanent installations.

JBL Professional PRX OneFor connection of microphones, instruments, mobile devices and wireless rigs, the PRX One I/O set features four Neutrik XLR Combo jacks, two channels of dedicated phantom power, dedicated Hi-Z input and two USB 2.0 ports, which can be used to power external devices and AKG wireless systems.

‘Whether you’re a singer/songwriter, DJ, corporate presenter or educator, sounding great is critical,’ says Brandon Knudsen, JBL Product Manager for Loudspeaker Professional Solutions. ‘So, when we set out to design a new compact column PA, acoustic performance was top of our list. But at the same time, we know that every scenario is unique. We’ve outfitted the PRX One with an incredibly versatile feature set that we believe will appeal to a broad range of performers: Singer/songwriters will appreciate its robust DSP and I/O set, while DJs will love the ability to push the system hard, with that deep bass they crave. And, presenters and educators will appreciate the system’s slim, discreet profile and presets that will have them sounding their best instantly. Everyone will be thrilled to leave the outboard gear behind and lighten their load-in, no matter where they play.’

The JBL PRX One will be available this month priced at £1,599 RRP inc VAT.
