Orlando, FL (June 16, 2017)—At InfoComm, JBL has introduced its new AE Powered Series of loudspeakers. Outfitted with Crown DriveCore front-end amplification, user-configurable DSP and full HiQnet Network control, they are expected to ship in late summer.
Comprised of two full-range loudspeakers and two subwoofer models, the AE Powered Series is intended for performing arts facilities, theatrical sound design, auditoriums, houses of worship, music venues, dance clubs, sports facilities, entertainment venues and so on.
The AE Powered Series offers network configuration, control and monitoring capabilities via HARMAN Audio Architect software. Rotatable waveguides allow designers to utilize the system in both vertical and horizontal configurations while maintaining the same coverage pattern. Because the height dimension is the same as the two-way systems from the JBL AE Series, MTU-1 and MTU-3 U-brackets can be utilized for overhead suspension.
Looping PowerCon A/C connectors allow multiple loudspeaker systems to be combined without requiring multiple home runs to the main power source or additional junction boxes at each array location. All models are equipped with JBL Differential Drive low-frequency drivers with 3-inch voice coils. The full-range high-frequency section utilizes the 2432H 3-inch voice coil compression driver.
