JBL Professional STX800 Series: Rugged, Portable, Powerful Loudspeakers

Harman announced the new JBL Professional STX800 Series of portable loudspeakers at Musikmesse 2012. Designed to bridge the gap between lighter-duty portable PA speakers and full-size tour sound systems, the six STX800 passive loudspeaker models in the series offer rugged, durable construction, extreme power handling capability, plus integration with Crown’s VRack amplifier V5 level processing and Harman JBL HiQnet Performance Manager software.

The JBL STX800 Series models include the 12-inch, 2-way STX812M; the 15-inch, 2-way STX815M; the dual 15-inch, 2-way STX825; the dual 15-inch, slot-loaded 3-way STX835; the 18-inch STX818S subwoofer; and the dual 18-inch STX828S subwoofer.

JBL Professional provided lots of details on the new loudspeakers:

STX800 Series loudspeakers are driven by JBL high-power-handling drivers said to deliver low distortion and precision waveguides for accurate pattern control. The enclosures are designed for easy handling, durability, and portability, making them easy to transport from place to place.

“We know that 'performance' encompasses much more than just specs. Total Performance is a design principle we embrace that embodies every characteristic of the product; spectral balance, ergonomics, practicality, extreme power handling, versatility, and appearance are all factors that make a substantial difference in the real world of professional audio,” said Richard Ruse, Senior Director of Global Sales, JBL Professional.

He continued, “STX800 speakers are ideal as a simple, high-density ground stack sound system and are perfect for regional sound and A/V Rental companies, touring bands, and professional mobile DJs. With their  M10 suspension points, they also function as a cost effective install speaker for night clubs, theaters, and churches and are also an affordable, professional extension to a full-size tour sound system when used as side-fills and floor monitors.”

You can use the STX812M and STX815M as either a floor monitor on a tripod stand or over a subwoofer. Both feature a 70 x 70 degree waveguide for precise, focused coverage.

According to JBL, with its wide frequency range and broad 90 x 50-degree coverage angle, the STX825 is ideal for bands or DJs as their primary PA, as a side-fill speaker on a concert stage or as an installed speaker in a dance club or performance venue.

The slot-loaded STX835 is intended for full-range use in standalone applications or in high-performance environments as a ground stack passive top box. The STX835 is designed to be placed over the STX828 subwoofer; meanwhile, its horn-loaded mid and high-frequency 60 x 40-degree waveguides allow two STX835’s to be splayed for wide-angle coverage over a large area. All STX800 loudspeakers can be operated either full-range or bi-amplified.

Though compact, the STX818S subwoofer can deliver 1,000W of continuous pink noise power handling and comes equipped with a top-mounted M20 pole mount. For applications requiring massive amounts of bass, the STX828S’s dual 18-inch drivers handle 2,000W of continuous pink noise, 4kW  program and 8kW peak.

To deliver their standard-setting performance, STX800 Series loudspeakers employ JBL’s CMCD Cone Midrange Compression Driver that provides ultra-low midrange distortion, increased sensitivity, extended bandwidth, and improved phase coherence.

High frequencies are handled by either a 2432H 3-inch or 2453H 4-inch titanium-diaphragm, neodymium-magnet compression driver, operating in conjunction with JBL’s Progressive Transition (PT) waveguides, which offer constant directivity and smooth frequency response over a wide area. STX800 Series woofers feature the latest evolution of JBL’s Vented Gap Cooling: Super Vented Gap Technology, which provides more efficient heat  dissipation for higher power-handling capability with minimal dynamic  compression.

JBL STX800 Series loudspeakers offer versatile installation options. All models (except the subwoofers) incorporate M10 suspension points. Optional wheel kits are available for the STX818S and STX828S subwoofers. STX800 Series models are made from birch / poplar plywood covered in JBL’s DuraFlex material, and have road-tough 14-gauge steel grilles lined with acoustically transparent cloth.
