About this deal

The EON ONE MK2 is engineered for versatility and ease of use: Dial up your signature sound in an instant, thanks to a full suite of pro-grade Lexicon and dbx effects and presets, with controls that scale from beginner to advanced. A potential added bonus when using this system is that stage monitors can in many cases be left out of the equation, as the performer(s) can hear the Eon One just as well as the audience can, and the characteristics mean that it’s quite usual for the speakers to be positioned behind the artist rather than the other way round.

With gigging coming back with a vengeance after a brief hiatus in 2020/2021, a portable and powerful PA system brimming with the latest in audio technology might be just what is needed to get the show back on the road and better than ever before. Companion EON718S subwoofers feature a threaded pole mount for full-range speakers and are easily stacked for cardioid configurations. If you think this might be the system for you, or your church, bar, conference room or whatever, then have a look at the technical info on the JBL web site, but if you haven’t heard or used this type of system before then it’s worth getting a demo arranged — but tell them you want a go at setting it up yourself!Access settings on-speaker using an integrated backlit LCD screen, or from anywhere in the venue using the JBL Pro Connect App. If you take a look at the JBL web site there’s enough technical information to tell any prospective user what they need to know; but I would say here that, having read the specs and used the Eon One for real, the figures really don’t matter once you’ve used the thing. The Bluetooth connections allow up to four EON ONE Compacts to be addressed directly and without cables.

All of this comes housed in JBL's most compact battery-powered PA yet, weighing in at just under 18 pounds. Like every JBL Professional product, the 718S undergoes stringent testing that goes above and beyond any conditions the product would face in the real world.I played about an hour of varied CD music including some heavyweight pop orchestra programme through the Eon One, and the ‘giant h-fi’ feeling persisted up to the loudest volume attainable, when the limit LED was starting to grumble (I assume that there’s some kind of soft-knee thing going on here because the limiting sounded pretty smooth when it happened). I plug the units in when they are powered ON, and sometimes, the battery indicator says it's charging, other times it just stays red and doesn't indicate charging. or just over 40lb makes it a one-person job thanks to the large, strong and well-placed handles on the top and bottom. The other great thing about where the panel is located is that it’s protected by being very deeply recessed, so all the knobs, and even plugged-in connectors, are safe from accidental knocks. It all adds up to unrivalled sound and product protection you can rely on even longer, from the leader in portable PA audio.
