Harman’s JBL Professional introduces the JBL EON618S, an 18-inch, 1000W powered subwoofer that is durable, supports true low-frequency extension and can be controlled wirelessly.

In keeping with its predecessors in the long line of portable EON loudspeakers, the JBL EON618S is designed to meet the demands of today’s working musicians and sound providers in the areas of flexibility, portability and ease of use.

JBL Professional designed the subwoofer to be simultaneously lightweight and rugged, visually compatible with nearly any setting and, perhaps most importantly, capable of delivering sound that is both clear and powerful.

While the JBL EON618S weighs in at just 78 pounds, it delivers a range of new features and capabilities.

The JBL EON618S’s maximum SPL output is 134 dB, with a frequency range of 31Hz – 150Hz ( -10 dB) and a frequency response of 42.5Hz – 150Hz ( -3 dB). DSP parameters, including presets for EON600, EON200 and other manufacturers’ full-range loudspeakers, can be controlled via a Bluetooth app for iOS and Android.

Selectable crossover presets are available through the EON Connect app. The JBL EON618S is tuned for optimal performance with the JBL EON610, JBL EON612 and JBL EON615 full-range systems.

Aesthetic design enhancements to the JBL EON618S include handles, a standard M20 threaded pole cup and a rugged enclosure. The JBL EON618S’s design maximizes cabinet volume while maintaining a transportable form factor.

The JBL EON618S extends a tradition that started in 1995 with the introduction of the first Harman JBL EON portable PA loudspeakers, nearly one million of which have been used for countless applications since.

In January 2014, JBL Professional continued the line’s tradition with the JBL EON600 Series loudspeakers, featuring new waveguide technology for uniform coverage, an updated design with a new enclosure for road-worthy durability and Bluetooth control of all EQ functions for easy system adjustment. The entire JBL EON600 Series leverages the latest technologies in cabinet materials, acoustic science, transducer design and user friendliness.
