Cut the cord with this wireless, battery-powered PA system and give your fans powerful, unique experiences—pop-up performances, remote weddings, subway stops, beach bonfires, rooftops, street corners, and more.

Take Your Performance to New Places
The EON ONE PRO enables your audience to experience the same legendary JBL sound heard in some of the largest stadiums and used by top artists. With 70 years of professional audio experience, the EON ONE PRO provides superior sound quality so you can sound great no matter where you play.

Sound Coverage Across All Angles
The EON ONE PRO mobile speaker optimizes sound dispersion so your audience can hear your performance from all angles. Similar to the technology used in large venue speaker arrays, the JBL EON ONE PRO optimizes the spacing of each driver to ensure amazing sound quality and consistent directionality.

Bass You Can Feel
The EON ONE PRO houses an 8” subwoofer that delivers low-end response that your audience can really feel. Bass-reflex technology further increases the impact of your bass tones, providing the well-defined low-frequency response that you would expect from a full-size speaker system.

One-Hand, Easy-to-Carry Design
The mobile linear-array speaker system fully collapses into the base, no shoulder bags or multiple trips required. An ergonomic handle design and light weight of just 35 pounds (16 kg) means EON ONE PRO rests perfectly parallel to your body during transport—making it easy to take it with you to even the most remote locations.

AKG Microphones C636

A New Approach to Broad-Spectrum Feedback Rejection
The C636 essentially eliminates feedback by combining a uniform cardioid polar pattern throughout the entire frequency spectrum with a specially designed suspension and grille for the capsule. This unique approach to housing the capsule avoids unwanted sound reflections on the back of the capsule from stage sound sources, the most common cause of feedback in other microphones.

Triple Pop Noise Protection
When AKG artists told us that “pops were the enemy,” we listened and incorporated a multi-layer protection system to provide singers with clear, plosive-free vocal performances. The protection system spares no expense and consists of the grille, a foam layer behind the grille and a magnetically attached computer-modeled mesh layer on top of the capsule. This triple-layer protection system is virtually unique to AKG and is not found in any microphone remotely near this price range.

Rugged Construction
With extremely rugged zinc alloy construction and a spring steel grille, the C636 stands up to the most demanding tour schedules. And its 24-karat gold-plated capsule protects the microphone against moisture and corrosion. Just focus on your performance—the C636 will take care of the rest, night after night.
