Their design goal is “create the best tools for better, more accurate sound”, a motto that has proven the test of time, resulting in numerous audio achievements, groundbreaking technologies, and revolutionary advances in the art and science of professional audio. It’s no wonder that JBL are still popular today and with this JBL portable PA buying guide, we’ll be taking a closer look at their latest offerings, including the EON, IRX, PRX, SRX, and VRX-series speaker systems.
