HARMAN Professional Solutions Introduces the Battery-Powered JBL EON ONE PRO

HARMAN Professional Solutions have unveiled the JBL EON ONE PRO rechargeable battery powered portable PA System at Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt.

Created by the world leaders in loudspeaker and line array technology, the EON ONE PRO combines the superior sound quality of a professional system with the convenience and portability of a self-contained, battery-powered solution. Its line array technology allows it to cover sound further and clearer than conventional point source speakers without the sound having to be too loud in the front. It carries sound further than similar products in its class of speaker.

Featuring Bluetooth® audio, a seven-channel mixer and a rechargeable lithium battery that lasts six hours at maximum volume, EON ONE PRO is ideal for gigging musicians and DJs, educators, fitness studios, corporate venues and other locations requiring a portable system that is quick and easy to set up.

The EON ONE PRO allows you to have incredible sound experiences, wherever your inspiration takes you - at the beach, at home around the barbeque, outdoor fitness session, a presentation at the office, school, sound system for floats and pop-up events, buskers and even outdoor weddings. Set up your sound in seconds - with no power cord or generator needed.



“The EON ONE PRO established a new standard for mobile sound reinforcement, and now the EON ONE PRO takes that even further with battery-powered operation, and a broader range of connectivity and control options,” said Craig Lambrecht, Retail & Recording Solutions, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “With EON ONE PRO , musicians and mobile presenters can easily control their sound using the built-in 7-channel mixer with Bluetooth audio—then collapse the entire system into the base unit and carry it away with one hand. It’s finally possible to perform literally anywhere without sacrificing sound quality and control.”


As the first all-in-one battery-powered linear-array PA system, the EON ONE PRO provides the ultimate combination of sound quality and portability. The high-frequency section and two spacers fit conveniently into the base unit, providing a streamlined package. Users can set up the system in seconds, choosing the right number of spacers to optimise the sound for each application. Two spacers provide a long throw for live performances and large crowds, while a single spacer is ideal for conferences, gyms and medium-sized groups. For small meetings and intimate events, users can place the high-frequency section directly atop the base unit.



With a maximum SPL of 118 dB (peak) and extended throw versus conventional point source speakers thanks to its line array technology, the EON ONE PRO provides detailed, distortion-free audio. An unobstructed 8” bass-reflex subwoofer delivers tight, accurate low-frequency response that’s ideal for DJs and playing back recorded music. The high-frequency section features JBL’s patent-pending Directivity Control Geometry, which optimises the spacing and angles of the six two-inch high-frequency drivers to deliver full and clear sound over a wide coverage area, ensuring that the entire audience hears the sound accurately and consistently.


The built-in seven-channel mixer with Hi-Z inputs and phantom power enables users to connect microphones, instruments such as acoustic guitars, electric guitars and keyboards, and other sources. The mixer features bass, treble and reverb controls to optimize the sound. The unit also includes a pass-thru XLR connector for integrating additional units for more robust sound reinforcement. Bluetooth audio streaming makes it easy to play back recorded music from smartphones or tablets. A USB charger connection provides power for phones and tablets when needed and the unit features an integrated tablet stand for convenience. The integrated accessory attachments allow users to add a camera or a future lighting element to complete any show.
