Harman Professional Solutions has announced a free update to JBL Professional’s PRX800 series of powered portable stage loudspeakers, which offer a simplified out-of-box experience by offering presets of the most commonly used sound settings.

The PRX800 V2 firmware update adds a new default tuning preset with enhanced low frequencies on the PRX815 and PRX812 models. If required, they can also choose a preset with neutral EQ settings. In addition, on all PRX800-series loudspeakers, except for subwoofers, the line level input sensitivity has been adjusted to provide a greater range of gain control. Customers can also revert input sensitivity back to the previous default setting.

“Through extensive customer research, we’ve learned that the two most common changes that customers make to JBL PRX800 settings are to boost the bass EQ and to turn up the input gain,” said Craig Lambrecht, Director Solutions and Marketing, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “PRX800 are already the loudest portable PA solutions in their class. With the new V2 update, customers will immediately notice a warmer and fuller tone that shows off the full-range capabilities of the PRX800 without needing to adjust the EQ or touch the gain knob, and they will be particularly impressed when playing bass-heavy music like pop, hip hop or EDM.”

The V2 firmware update can be installed on PRX800 series speakers via the latest versions of the PRX Connect app for Android and iOS. Harman says it will now will begin shipping JBL PRX800-series loudspeakers with the new V2 Firmware pre-installed.
