JBL Professional Releases PRX800 V2 Firmware

PRX800 customers spoke and JBL have listened. JBL Professional have announced their new free app and firmware update to the PRX800 series of powered portable loudspeakers.

The update makes JBL PRX800 loudspeakers sound even better than before. They have the best energy efficient drivers that make PRX800 the loudest in its class, along with tour grade components and wooden cabinet. It’s a great fit for DJ’s, musicians, hire companies and venue installations.

The PRX800 Firmware update includes:

Enhanced Bass Tuning (PRX812 and PRX815):
This new default tuning preset features enhanced low frequencies. You will immediately notice a warmer and fuller tone and will be particularly impressed when playing bass-heavy music including pop, hip hop and EDM. (A flat tuning is also available.)

More Control over Input Gain (all models except subwoofers):
Line-level inputs now include options for Hi and Lo input sensitivity settings. Lo input sensitivity is pre-set by the update, which will result in louder playback by default without having to touch the Input Gain knob. You can switch to Hi input sensitivity, the previous default setting, with a simple flip of a switch in the PRX Connect App.

The V2 firmware update is easily installed on PRX800 series speakers via the latest versions of the PRX Connect App for Android and iOS, now available through Google Play and Apple App Store respectively.

As of March 4 2019, HARMAN began shipping JBL PRX800-series loudspeakers with V2 firmware pre-installed.
