User reviews on JBL JRX100 products

renaud.gimenez's review (JBL - JRX125)

By renaud.gimenez, 12/05/2014
Used on Crown amp (do not know the ref) and outgoing équalisés a 01v.
Coupled to a 600 HK lucas
It is used for concerts in front of 300 people any more because already this gauge is little mention bass plus highs that do not exist in these speakers (hence the HK for acute because of the simple box low is short for the gauge ...).
Choice I would keep them but inevitably catch up alone because the sound is dull and nondescript (like it's not a concert, the sound comes out of the mobile phone actually ^ ^) and a good EQ in the ass for a few frequencies quickly surpass others.

Terrifying! (JBL - JRX115)

By mimix13, 26/02/2013
How long have you been using?
3 years
Did you try many other models before buying it?
What is so special that you like most and least?
+ + Sound quality, power, light weight (17kg! Door on it with one hand!), Design, durability, resistance cold / heat (use between - 10 ° and + 40 °)
- Outdoors, must KSub to complete important if space sound with a tendency to accentuate the mids if you are at least 3m from the enclosure
How do you rate the quality / price?
With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Very good quality / price ratio, especially since they are now € 879,
I also KSub, 3KW very good sound, light and handy and I'll buy the same kit 2K12 + KSub for 6KW: of course I remake this choice, also I wonder how I could do not buy this kind of bomb earlier ..

Go JBL! (JBL - JRX118S)

By JimboSpins, 24/01/2013
The JBL JRX 118S is a passive subwoofer that has a clean sound in almost any room size. I would crank this subwoofer up in many different spaces and would get zero distortion or muddy sounding bass. This is the subwoofer line from JBL that originally made me fall in love with their subs in the first place, the JRX line of subs was a way to get a great sounding bass without having to spend a ton of money on a subwoofer. That was back in companies like Mackie where overcharging for quality subwoofers and it was hard to find one that was good without breaking your whole budget on one.
These subs are built to take a beating; I still own mine and though I do not use it anymore I will never get rid of it because it symbolized how hard I use to have to work. I would take this sub with me everywhere when I was first starting out as a DJ and stage manager for other bands that needed me.
The sound of this sub is very clean, the low tones are full and rich and when you use it with some good speakers it will just complete the sound and work for any style of music. This woofer has never given a single issue. After using it for all of those years, it never had a single problem and that is generally what you get with JBL. You will get a good quality piece of gear from them all of the time. This JRX118S is the reason that I have purchased so many other woofers from JBL. You can get 1400 watts of peak power out of this woofer and 350 at continuous use. I am very happy that I purchased this woofer years ago, and I am even happier that I didn’t get rid of it and still own it!

The Bass was not good! (JBL - JRX115)

By JimboSpins, 20/01/2013
The JBL JRX 115 cost me about 700 dollars brand new when I purchased them back in 2008. They are made well and will last a long time but the only thing that I didn’t like about them was the low end sound. I felt like the bass/ low frequencies just were not clean enough for what I wanted to use them for. This was very upsetting to me because I am a huge fan of JBL speakers and live sound equipment. I felt like they dropped the ball with the low end on these speakers.
The mids and highs sounding great, and the bass sounds ok when the speakers are not playing at anywhere near max volume. But once you start to crank up the volume I could hear major flaws in the way the bass sounded. I have even tried them with several different mixers, but no matter what mixer or style of music I played it still was not to my liking.
I kept these speakers for no more than 90 days then could not return them to the store so I had to sell them on Ebay. I almost got back what I paid for them so I was happy with it. If you really do not care how clean your low end sound is then these may be for you. But with the style of music that I partake in (dance, techno, hiphop and pretty much anything upbeat) these just would not satisfy me.
To JBL’s credit, these are more of the “affordable” speakers that they came out with that year. I have used about 7 different speakers from JBL and all of them sounded pretty good especially the ones on the higher price range. Maybe I just expected too much out of these speakers, or maybe I expect too much out of JBL because of some of the stuff I have got from them before. But these where a disappointment to me!
