Introducing the new JBL PRX815W, one of the most sophisticated loudspeaker offerings from any manufacturer in its class. This 2-way 15” loudspeaker is small and lightweight, yet packs serious punch into a compact, versatile enclosure. The asymmetrical design lends itself to use as a wedge monitor or sound reinforcement speaker and the abundant power ensures a crisp, clear sound. With EQ capable of being tailored to the day’s application (live sound, recorded music playback or speech), the JBL PRX815W proves itself the perfect choice wherever full-bandwidth sound reproduction is required. And thanks to the thorough research JBL has conducted to optimize the relationship between their proprietary components, the 800 Series continues a long tradition of delivering that legendary JBL sound with maximum efficiency.

Loaded with JBL’s Next-Generation 15” 275G Differential Drive® transducer and a 2408H-2 1.5” neodymium compression driver with an annular polymer diaphragm, the JBL PRX815W is capable of producing high SPL (with a maximum SPL peak of 137 dB), while still keeping total weight to a minimum. The 90° by 50° horn ensures wide dispersion, while the cabinet’s overall frequency response is an impressive 43 Hz – 20 kHz.
An Evolutionary Step in the Efficient Use of Power
With best-in-class 1500-watt Class-D amplification (750W x 2), the JBL PRX815W provides more than enough power to provide plenty of headroom for super-clean, venue-filling sound reproduction without excess weight, heat, or power consumption.
At the top left, you’ll see the MONITOR button (and corresponding LED) used for optimizing the EQ when the PRX815W is used as a stage monitor. To the right is the CONNECT button, which enables the embedded ioSYS control when used with the HARMAN Connected PA app and compatible products. There’s a FRONT LED switch that turns the front LED on or off, and for each of the two channels you’ll find a jack capable of accepting a ¼” TRS or XLR plug, a Gain control, a Line/Mic switch for level matching and a LED indicating whether signal is present. Above the On/Off switch is an XLR group output and above that, the 50/50 MIX Button and LED.
Rugged for the Road
The JBL PRX815W is constructed from premium grade materials including durable, lightweight 25mm (on the top and bottom for added rigidity) and 18 mm poplar plywood, assembled employing tongue-and-groove joints and protected by JBL’s tour-proven DuraFlex™ finish. The 800 Series components are safeguarded by a 16-gauge, dent-resistant grille and the durable handles are fabricated using lightweight glass-filled nylon. The 14-gauge steel M10 suspension points each have a yield-strength of 1000 lbs.
Performance configuration and optimization of your system is conveniently accessed via Wi-Fi, using the free, custom-designed PRX Connect application for iOS and Android. Walk the venue and fine-tune from any spot while making adjustments for maximum coverage and tone. PRX Connect gives you control over volume levels, 8-band parametric EQ and up to 50ms of delay to perfectly time-align your system.
