JBL Builds on AE Series with Compact Family
JBL Professional's new compact AE series loudspeakers provide more options for system designers and integrators in several applications.
An expansion of its Application Engineered (AE) series loudspeakers, JBL Professional's new compact AE series loudspeakers provide more options for system designers and integrators in several applications.
"The demand for loudspeaker systems that provide added flexibility and even greater sonic clarity continues to grow with the evolution of the systems integration industry," said Jon Sager, director of market development, installed sound, JBL Professional. "The new AE compact loudspeaker series addresses these demands, enabling sound designers and installers to best meet the needs of any given environment, including performing arts venues, houses of worship, sports facilities, corporate board rooms, and dance clubs."
The series consists of eight high-output, two-way loudspeaker models that incorporate either single or dual woofers, including 5.25-inch, 6.5-inch, and 8-inch transducers. The high-frequency sections include a 1-inch dome tweeter for two models (AC15 and AC25), while the remaining six models incorporate 1-inch exit compression drivers.
The AC18 and AC28 models offer the system designer a choice of rotatable Progressive Transition waveguides with coverage patterns of 90 x 50 degrees or 120 x 60 degrees. The AC25, AC26, and AC28 models incorporate JBL's Filtered Array Technology, which allows each of the low-frequency transducers to be independently controlled for magnitude and phase response, for a smoother power response and constant coverage.
