The system delivers a stunning 130 dB of wide, full-bandwidth SPL with consistent front-to-back throw, thanks to its custom-engineered, 12-tweeter column array, featuring JBL A.I.M. (Array Inumbration Mechanics) acoustic design; 12-inch bass-reflex woofer and a built-in 2,000-watt (peak) Class D amplifier.

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. 

Creatives will work faster and easier with PRX ONE's Soundcraft-designed 7-channel, dual-mode digital mixer that can be set to control either general mix functions or channel-strip functions, all manageable via a full-color LCD or the new JBL Pro Connect universal app. Available for Android and iOS phones and tablets, the JBL Pro Connect app opens up a world of possibilities for hands-on control over a full suite of PRX ONE mixer, DSP, and Bluetooth features.

The Bottom Line: Every PRX ONE undergoes 100 hours of rigorous stress testing to ensure that it will perform flawlessly in real-world conditions.
