The Eon range of portable powered speakers evolves further, with new styling, improved output, and more besides. Although 'the sound' is nearly everything, there are other things to consider when looking at portable live-sound speakers.
The Eon XTs score very highly for their light weight and friendly profile with no sharp edges to damage your hands on , and are simplicity itself to get up and running, as you'll soon find out. If looks really matter to you, it shouldn't be too hard to keep these moulded cabinets looking pretty. Let's hope they don't notice…. The lightweight Eon XT has great handles rather than plain and simple cutaways, making it easy to carry around for long periods of time.
Recent advances in driver and amplifier technology allow hardware to be capable of much greater performance with significantly lower overall weight. The Eon XT is just such a speaker, with power and portability in abundance.
The Eon range is very well equipped with both. The more efficient the driver design, the more electrical input power at the coil is converted to acoustic output which is good and the less power is wasted as heat again, good. The H neodymium compression driver, which handles everything above the crossover frequency of 1.
This impressive statistic is courtesy of the inch woofer, DSP and cab design. In the original press release, JBL refer back to the recent development of the PRX series of active speakers, stating that this process contributed to the design of the Eon XT.
Having just described the rear-panel functions, it's obvious that the XT is easy to use, and with its frequency range and power rating you can throw it at any reasonable situation. The most acoustically absorbent thing in the place was my chicken and stuffing sandwich, which wasn't scheduled to be around for the whole evening. It sounded even better with the church organ voice, throwing out loads of depth.
In terms of portability, it's hard to see how anyone could make anything in this format any lighter or easier to handle, especially when you consider that it's capable of putting out such high levels.
If JBL invent an even lighter driver, they're going to have to start putting lead weights in the cabs to stop them blowing away. It can also double up as a backline speaker or powerful stage monitor, making it a versatile choice. As far as I'm concerned, portable live sound speakers do need good handles.
The Eon XT is extremely well endowed in this respect, having three recessed, generously proportioned handles, one on each side and one on top. For ordinary portable use, the speakers would either stand on top of other cabinets or be mounted on stands or poles. The standard 36mm sockets used for the latter method come with small clamp-screws rather than the common handwheel bolts, but they are more than adequate for the task.
