Compact, lightweight, truly portable, the MRX500 is the ultimate PA system for musicians and DJ's who need fully professional sound and performance within a budget.
Torture Tested and Road Proven
Featuring as much as 30% less weight than comparable systems, the MRX was designed from the ground up by JBL engineers utilizing brand new lightweight JBL Differential Drive® transducer technology, engineered for this application. Drawing on the vast engineering excellence established with the industry standard and road proven VERTEC® Professional Loudspeaker Series, the MRX delivers outstanding performance for the DJ and musician where a smaller, lighter, more portable system is required with no sacrifice in sound quality or durability. Specifically engineered for MRX and completing the design, a series of rugged plywood enclosures, covered with JBL’s DuraFlex™ finish, a tough, textured scratch resistant surface, that ensures years of solid performance and professional good looks.
100 Hour Torture Test
Like all JBL Professional products, the MRX Series is brutalized in JBL’s speaker torture test. Unique in the industry, the JBL torture test submits each component in the MRX Series to 100 hours of continuous, high level input, ensuring that the MRX will deliver its extraordinary sound even after years of tough handling and thousands of hours of performance.

Superb Sound and High-Power Performance Engineered Enclosures
Combining mechanical design expertise, new materials and a DuraFlex™ finish, MRX500 enclosures have been optimized for
minimum weight and maximum ruggedness.
Proven Networks Utilizing years of design experience, MRX networks are built using proven components in the most sophisticated topologies in their class. For maximum reliability, all input and loop-thru connections are made via Neutrik® NL4MP connectors. In addition, the input connections can be easily reconfigured on the subs, for an efficient sub/sat cabling option. Taking a lead from the SRX700 Professional Loudspeaker System, these
new components deliver extraordinary sound quality, power handling and performance yet, due to JBL’s advanced engineering, benefit from a significant weight savings over traditional designs.
The result is a speaker system that will perform well beyond any other system in its class.
Differential Drive Transducers
JBL Professional designed a brand new range of 400W Differential Drive® transducers in 12-inch and 15-inch configurations, perfectly matched to the brand new 1.5-inch annular polymer diaphragm compression driver producing a transducer engine that weighs significantly
less than traditional transducer designs, yet their performance, sound quality and power handling are extraordinary.
The constant beamwidth and power response of MRX500’s custom designed waveguide is perfectly matched to its direct radiating woofers which ensures superb coverage throughout the frequency range of
Lighter. Louder. Legendary.
Dual Angle Pole Mount
The dual angle pole mount on the MRX512M and MRX515 offers much more control than the typical single mount. With a 10º down angle the speaker can be directed down toward your audience, keeping the energy off the back wall enhancing coverage and clarity.
Engineered to Move
Performing musicians have long sought a system that is easy to transport, set up and adjust to the room, in very little time and typically with no assistance. Being your own sound man requires a hassle free system that is predictable and reliable, allowing you to quickly shift your focus back to the performance. The MRX is extraordinary in its coverage, allowing you to deliver super high quality JBL sound to every seat in the house.
DJ’s are in constant need of wide bandwidth systems that can handle long hours of punishing, high decibel sound output with deep bass response, tight mids and crisp highs. But the mobile DJ must be able to achieve all this in an easily portable, super lightweight system. The MRX is without equal for this application, giving the flexibility, professional performance and road-tough durability that is as necessary as the quality of the sound.
Sound on the Move
The MRX line is a high quality portable PA that is truly portable. It’s a perfect solution for houses of worship, schools or any venue that requires a mobile system. If you need a PA that is as easy to store as it is to use - compact, powerful and manageable, the MRX500 Series is your choice for sound on the move, even when it’s just to the next room.
