  • Question about the JBL's............

    HI,

    I just bought the VDrums with the TD-10, and I'm very happy with them. I want to get some speakers that can handle the lows. I already have a power mixer, so I'm wondering what speaker I should get. Does the JBL EON15 come unpowered, and is it worth to get that. Any help would be appreeciated. Thanks,
    Brian

    There are many unpowered (normal) speaker systems who will do the job. Look at the number of Ohms at your powered mixer.

        Thanks for the input. I think I'm going to get a JBL 125 with a 15" speaker. Has anyone tries this speaker with the V-Drums.

        Thanks

            WOW!! Talking about reviving an old thread! I seriously doubt your chances of a reply from the authors as this thread is over 4 years old - not to mention that no one has seen puttenvr since Moses was playing full-back for Egypt!!!!!!

            However, there are plenty of members out there using the JBLs and I'm sure they will chime in sometime soon!

              I'm beginning to feel like i did yesterday when my Japanese students told me during English class that my fly was open, after laughing at me for about 10 minutes!

                I built a "miniature" rear loaded horn using a 12" 300W Jensen subwoofer. I say miniature because most designs for this type of cabinet are the size of small minivans, and supposed to be used in pairs. My mixer has a subwoofer tap, (below 100Hz) which I run to a 100W amp. I had also considered a 12" car subwoofer cabinet since the main function is to add bottom end punch to the bass & toms, & a tiny bit to the snare, not high fidelity.

                  No problems. We all have days like that!

                  Strangely enought, those JBL owning members seem mysteriously silent - perhaps it is because they have become deaf?

                        I've used the JBL EON 15 G2s for a couple of years now - and they're excellent! They're a little pricey, but worth every penny. They're robust and reliable and I've not had them distort at all.

                        I don't play massive venues, but up to 300-400 people sized places, and they're fine. I've never got above about 2/3 in terms of their potential volume.

                        I've had many, many compliments on the sound of my drums - shame they weren't about my playing eh?!

                          Thanks for your input into this 'revived' thread Oz!
                          I'm considering getting one or two of the jbl eon15-g2 speakers and a subwoofer to match - do you use the sub? Also, while comparing the EON series, do you know anything about the JRX series? Thanks!
                          P.s. How's the weather in Oz?

                            Know nothing about the JRX series.

                            I haven't used the sub - for what I'm doing, I get enough bottom end from my G2's - having said that, if I had the cash (and space in the car to transport) I'd probably grab a sub - and then claim to notice the difference!

                            The weather in Sydney is okay - touched 20C today - not bad for mid winter.

                            Let me know how you go with the sub!
