JBL has launched the PRX400 series of passive portable loudspeakers (pictured), designed to bring professional-quality performance, power handling and durability to more affordable price points. The range consist of the 15-inch PRX415M, 12-inch PRX412M and dual 15-inch PRX425 loudspeakers, as well as the 18-inch PRX418 subwoofer.
When combined with the PRX418 subwoofer, the PRX415M and PRX412M models can create a sat/subwoofer system capable of delivering 135dB of full-range, high-quality sound. The PRX425 is ideal for DJs and bands that require powerful low-frequency extension from a standalone cabinet.
Shipping in Q2 2012, the loudspeakers utilise high-quality, tour-tested drivers and components, which deliver clear, detailed and dynamic sound. They also feature Neutrik SpeakON combination connectors and lightweight, yet tough 18mm birch/poplar multi-laminate hardwood enclosures, covered in DuraFlex. All PRX400 Series models feature rugged 16 gauge steel grilles.
The AKG WMS 40 MINI 2 dual wireless system (£199) offers high-definition audio performance, with efficient body pack and cardioid mic transmitters, ensuring advanced, reliable and quality sound for performances.
Available in February 2012 in Vocal, Instrumental and Mix sets, the package includes two HT 40 MINI dynamic cardioid mics and an SR 40 MINI DUAL receiver, as well as swivelling antennae, easy-to-read LED meterings, volume control and an on-off switch on the front of the receiver.
Sound Technology is the UK distributor for JBL and AKG.
