Delivering an unprecedented combination of power and mobility, HARMAN’s JBL Professional introduced the PRX700 Series portable loudspeakers. The next generation in JBL’s market leading PRX portable PA line, the PRX700 Series offers massive improvements in power, SPL and connectivity.
The PRX700 Series comprises seven new models: the PRX710, 10-inch, 2-way multipurpose loudspeaker; the PRX712, 12-inch 2-way multipurpose loudspeaker and floor monitor; the PRX715, 15-inch, 2-way full-range main system/floor monitor; the PRX725, 15-inch, 2-way bass reflex loudspeaker; the PRX735, 15-inch, 3-way full-range main system; the PRX715XLF, 15-inch, self-powered bass reflex subwoofer system; and the PRX718XLF, 18-inch self-powered bass reflex subwoofer system.

The PRX700 Series models feature new Differential Drive® woofers that provide better heat dissipation, lower power compression and higher dynamic range versus conventional single-coil designs, resulting in better sound quality and higher SPL. In addition, the PRX700 woofers use magnetically saturated pole-pieces and an aluminum shorting ring, which significantly reduces nonlinear distortion.
The PRX700 Series features JBL’s patented waveguide technology, providing excellent coverage throughout the system’s bandwidth. The sound is smooth and consistent without hotspots, so control is optimized. All models offer coverage of 90 degrees (horizontal) x 50 degrees (vertical), which the exception of the PRX710, which features coverage of 100 degrees (horizontal) x 60 degrees (vertical).
The input panel on the full-range models (PRX710, PRX712, PRX715, PRX725, PRX735) offers a variety of features for maximum flexibility and control, highlighted by two balanced XLR-1/4” combination inputs and two unbalanced RCA inputs.

The PRX700 Series is ideal for traveling musicians, DJs and sound companies, thanks to a variety of tour-tested, road-worthy features. All PRX700 cabinets are built from a combination of 25 mm (on the top and bottom for added rigidity) and 18 mm, strong, lightweight poplar plywood made structurally sound with tongue and groove joints. The cabinets also feature JBL’s tour-proven DuraFlex™ finish, a dent-resistant 16-guage steel grill, and lightweight glass-filled nylon handles to ensure strength and durability. In addition, rigging points, pole sockets and vulcanized feet promote easy setup and total versatility.
The SE215 Sound Isolating Earphone features a Dynamic MicroDriver for a warm, detailed sound. A detachable, Kevlar® reinforced cable with formable wire allows for easy replacement and secure, comfortable fit.
Dynamic Driver with improved Bass
The SE215 is the entry to Shure SE earphones. It features a Dynamic driver for a detailed, warm, sound with improved bass.
Sound Isolating Design
Sound Isolating Earphones were originally developed as Personal Monitor Systems to allow musicians to hear their own performances in loud onstage environments.
They work by using soft, flexible sleeves to block up to 90 % of the background noise. You can concentrate on your music, whether you are on-stage, in a train, on the street or working out. At the same time you can reduce the audio level to conserve your hearing.
Detachable cable with wireform fit
The SE215 features a durable Kevlar® reinforced cable that allows easy replacement or customisation. The formable wire ensures secure placement, and over the ear configuration keeps cables out of the way. The gold plated MMCX connector has a lock-snap mechanism allowing 360 degree rotation for comfortable fit.
An assortment of sleeves for individual fit
Because every ear is different, the Fit Kit includes an assortment of foam and silicone sleeves in different sizes. Experiment with the size and style that creates the best fit for you. A good seal is key to optimizing sound isolation and bass response as well as maximizing comfort during extended wear.
RTW, a leading vendor of visual audio meters and monitoring devices for professional broadcast, production, post production and quality control, is pleased to announce its LQL (Loudness Quality Logger) a new tool for logging, true-peak data analysis and reporting that is compatible with the TM7, TMR7 and TM9 TouchMonitor line of products. The LQL license (SW20014) is a natural extension of RTW’s range of innovative software options for the 7- and 9-inch line of TouchMonitor audio meters.
LQL enables data to be derived directly via an IP-connection from a capable TouchMonitor audio meter, as well as from external storage media such as a USB stick. Also included in the software are dual limit weighting, status information, marker and various other reporting features. The new PC software is free of charge to users, however the SW20014 LQL license is required to enable a TM7, TMR7 or TM9 series meter to be compatible with data export and additional display functions.
“The new Loudness Quality Logger is quite a milestone for RTW,” says Andreas Tweitmann, CEO, RTW. “When we first developed the concept for the TouchMonitor, we knew it would be necessary to continue researching and developing tools that would keep up with and be one step ahead of technology for managing loudness. With the ability for the user to obtain a log, analysis and reporting, their experience is enhanced even further, providing them with an essential solution unlike ever before.”
The TM7 and TM9 series TouchMonitors, which include the innovative Magic LRA instrument, feature a 7- and 9-inch touch-sensitive display, respectively, and provide unparalleled flexibility and modularity, combined with intuitive control. The software visualizes multiple sources simultaneously. Both support displaying the same signal on multiple instruments in parallel, each with dedicated defaults with both horizontal and vertical operation. TM7 visualizes up to 40 sources at the same time, while the TM9 visualizes up to 48 and the TMR7, specifically designed for radio broadcasting, visualizes up to four.
Various audio interfaces and combinations are available i.e. analog, AES3, AES3id or 3G-SDI. RTW’s entire TouchMonitor range was created to help adhere to all major industry loudness standards, including EBU R128, ITU BS.1770-3/1771-1, ATSC A/85 and ARIB.
