HARMAN Professional Solutions has introduced the JBL Professional BRX300 Series of modular line arrays designed for small- to mid-size applications in the APAC, China and India markets, exclusively.
The series includes the BRX308-LA line array element, BRX325SP powered subwoofer with DSP, BRX308-ACC transport kit, BRX308-AF array frame, and BRX308-PM pole mount and adapter kit. Systems are available in minimum one-subwoofer/two-top or one-subwoofer/four-top configurations and can be stacked, pole mounted or flown. The line array elements and subs are housed in wood cabinets with a Duraflex coating designed to protect against wear and tear.
“Every day, the world’s leading concert venues and touring productions rely on the power and clarity of JBL Professional line array technology,” says Sunil Karanjikar, Cinema product manager, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “With the BRX300 Series, we’re bringing that legendary sonic performance to small- and mid-size productions.
“The BRX300 series takes the guesswork out of system setup and operation, thanks to its built-in corrective processing, smart transport system and simple rigging hardware,” he continues. “No matter your configuration, you’ll be able to set up quickly and safely and get right back to focusing on your show. And, because systems are self-powered and self-contained, there’s no dealing with amp racks, crossover calibration or long cable runs—just add input cables and a mixer and you’re ready to go.”
The BRX308-LA line array element is equipped with dual 8-inch LF drivers and a 3-inch titanium compression driver. Stated maximum SPL is 136 dB output and horizontal dispersion is 110 degrees, with variable interbox angles for fine-tuning vertical coverage.
The BRX325SP powered sub, housed in an enclosure with built-in casters, incorporates dual 15-inch woofers and is stated to extend low-frequency response to 32 Hz. Transducers are driven by a 6-channel amplifier stated to deliver 1,000 watts, capabile of also powering up to four BRX308-LA line array elements. Internal DSP handles EQ, filters, driver-protection circuitry and crossover management.
The BRX308-ACC transport kit provides a self-contained transport system for four line array elements and includes padded covers for the cart, powered subwoofer and required cables.
The BRX308-AF array frame supports one powered sub or up to eight line array elements in flown configurations, and is tested for a safety factor of 4:1. The BRX308-PM pole mount and adapter kit mounts up to two line array elements.
The new JBL BRX300 Series will be available in July, 2020 in the APAC, China and India markets.
