JBL PRX535 Powered 3 Way PA Speaker
The JBL PRX535 features the most accurate performance in the PRX500 line.
The fusion of world leading JBL speaker technology matched with precision Crown power amplification
makes the PRX Series simply the most versatile portable powered system in its class. The 3-way design allows for a large frequency responce with a present mid-range, a bright top end and a massive low end. Ideally suited to applications where the program material, live or prerecorded
has many subtle nuances that is critical to the performance. As with all the full-range PRX500 Series systems two EQ selections can be used to optimize the system
for the program material and/or environment. The input section also accommodates either Line or Mic/Instrument level inputs.

The PRX535 is a self-powered, lightweight 3-way loudspeaker system capable of delivering a very high level of performance, both in SPL and sonic accuracy. The PRX535
is comprised of a 380 mm (15 inch) 265F Differential Drive woofer, a 165 mm (6.5 inch) 195H horn-loaded 90 by 50 degree mid-range and a 2408H 37.5 mm (1.5 inch) annular polymer diaphragm, neodymium compression driver mounted to a 90 by 50 degree horn, all driven by a multi-channel Crown International Class-D digital power amplifier. A propriety DSP chip is at the core of a fully featured input section, providing user selectable system EQ, protection, input sensitivity selection, crossover functionality, dynamic limiting and discrete component optimization.
The enclosure is constructed of quality plywood and coated in JBL’s rugged DuraFlex finish. Durable polypropylene end-caps add extra protection for the cabinet.
An integrated pole mount on the bottom endcap enables easy deployment. The CNC machined steel grille wraps around the sides of the enclosure so there are no protruding lips on the front of the box to create acoustical interference. The grille is also lined with an acoustically transparent foam to provide additional driver protection.
The amplifier input panel offers XLR or quarter inch jack compatibility and a sensitivity switch provides extra flexibility, making it possible to connect literally any sound source without using a mixer. Signal present and overload lights indicate the system status and assist in
setting the optimum level, via the level control knob.
