Build an unstoppable sound system with JBL’s new EON 700 portable PA systems

For any presentation, whether musical, instructional, or somewhere in between, being heard clearly is vital. Not just any old sound system will do. Weak systems won’t let you be heard by everyone. Some may distort at high volumes or present poor dynamics as speakers interfere with one another. Worse still, basic systems may lack a way to avoid the ever-dreaded feedback squeal that can turn an attentive audience into one on edge. 

For a sound system that can perform in small, intimate venues and scale up to power through at far more demanding settings, JBL’s new line of EON 700 portable, powered PA speakers is built to fit the bill.

JBL is a well-regarded and recognized brand in pro audio with decades of experience delivering equipment to meet the wide variety of needs in the space. The new EON 700 Series continues on this tradition with a handful of powerful, full-range speakers and an epic subwoofer to support them. The speakers are further complemented by JBL’s suite of basic and advanced controls that make managing the sound system a breeze.

JBL offers a range of capable, full-range loudspeakers with the 10-inch woofer on the EON 710, 12-inch EON 712, and 15-inch EON 715. These mighty loudspeakers come bolstered at the high-end by a horn with smooth off-axis beamwidth, helping them achieve a wide frequency response range. 

Thanks to refined waveguides, the speakers also deliver broad coverage and wide sweet spots. 2414H compression drivers with neodymium magnets offer balanced response in a lightweight package. All of this comes powered by 1,300 watts of efficient, discrete Class D amplification for clean and clear sound no matter the volume.

With the EON 718S subwoofer, the sound can bump and thump on another level still. JBL’s subwoofer jumps up to 1,500 watts of efficient amplification to deliver smooth and natural bass response down to 31Hz.

The EON 700 Series comes built and tested for the most demanding scenarios. The full-range speakers come built into composite enclosures with injection molding and mechanical shaping for supreme durability, and the subwoofer sits in a 15-ply birch housing with a Duraflex painting. The speakers are all put through JBL’s rigorous 100-hour stress test that sees them pushed far beyond the challenges they’ll face in real-world use.

The durability and power of the EON 700 Series is matched by its versatility. You can run speakers individually, pair them with the sub, stack them, fly them, rig them up, or pole mount them. They feature indexed and molded feet for easy stacking in stand-up or cardioid configurations, not to mention the benefit for storage, and they have multiple mounting points to easily adapt to your installation needs.

Given the variety of setups the EON 700 Series can support, they naturally need advanced controls. Each speaker has a built-in DSP and color LCD screen for easy control of the EQ, limiters, delay, ducking, and dbx Automatic Feedback Suppression system.  LED indicator lights on the speakers make it simple to see channel status and signal detection. 

If you’ve got a lot of speakers, you can easily manage them all over Bluetooth. With a far-reaching Bluetooth LE connection and the JBL Pro Connect app, you get full control over the speakers internal parameters, an 8-band parametric output EQ, speaker grouping, and whole speaker snapshots. The full-range speakers also feature Bluetooth 5.0 for a high-bandwidth connection to a wireless audio source.

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
