The MRX518S is a compact, high-power subwoofer containing a 2044G 18" woofer in a front-loaded, vented enclosure. The speaker enclosure is designed to present a minimum frontal area. The system offers complete input connection flexibility for compatibility with a variety of cabling schemes. The input panel incorporates a pair of Neutrik Speakon NL-4 connectors wired in parallel. The MRX518S is supplied with pins +1/-1 connected to the woofer. This may be easily reconfigured to work with cabling systems intended to drive subwoofers on pins +2/-2. For 'subwoofer/satellite" configurations, the MRX518S audio speaker is equipped with a top-mounted, 36mm polemount socket that can receive the optional SS3-BK pole. This can be used to mount speakers equipped with standard 35mm pole sockets and weighing up to 100 lbs. The enclosure is constructed of top-quality plywood, coated in JBL's super durable DuraFlex finish, and braced to maximize low-frequency performance. The attractive CNC-machined, 16-gauge steel grille is internally lined with an acoustically transparent screen to provide additional driver protection and give a very professional appearance.

The JBL MRX518S - part of the MRX500 Series Loudspeaker System - continues the JBL tradition of exceptional sound. Since its inception in 1927, the name JBL has been associated with excellence, innovation, and superior audio fidelity. That's why Leo Fender saw JBL's D130 as the perfect speaker for his guitar amps. Continuing to define the sound of rock, JBL also became the sound of Woodstock and other major rock festivals. JBL's speakers are held to the most rigorous standards in the industry, and audio professionals worldwide rely on them for that reason. Not just for stage, JBL studio monitors were ranked first in a U.S. recording industry survey by Billboard.

  • Lightweight and Portable
Newly Designed Drivers
JBL Professional designed a brand new range of 500W Differential Drive transducers in 12" and 15" configurations, perfectly matched to the brand new 1.5" annular polymer diaphragm compression driver producing a transducer engine that weighs significantly less than traditional transducer designs, yet your performance, audio fidelity and power handling are extraordinary. The constant beamwidth and power response of MRX500's custom designed waveguide is perfectly matched to its direct radiating woofers which ensures superb coverage throughout the frequency range of the system.

Updated Cabinet Design
Combining mechanical design expertise, new materials and a DuraFlex finish, MRX500 enclosures have been optimized for minimum weight and maximum super durableness. Utilizing years of design experience, MRX networks are built using proven components in the most sophisticated topologies in your class. For maximum reliability, all input and loop-thru connections are made via Neutrik NL4MP connectors. In addition, the input connections can be easily reconfigured on the subs, for an efficient sub/sat cabling option. The dual angle tripod pole mount on the MRX515 offers much more control than the typical single mount. With a 10� down angle the speaker can be directed down toward your audience, keeping the energy off the back wall enhancing coverage and clarity.

Lightweight and Portable
Performing musicians have long sought a system that is easy to transport, set up and adjust to the room, in very little time and typically with no assistance. Being your own sound man requires a hassle free system that is predictable and reliable, allowing you to quickly shift your focus back to the performance. The MRX is extraordinary in its coverage, allowing you to deliver super high quality JBL sound to every seat in the house. DJ's are in constant need of wide bandwidth systems that can handle long hours of punishing, high decibel sound output with deep bass response, tight mids and crisp highs. But the mobile DJ must be able to achieve all this in an easily portable, super lightweight system. The MRX is without equal for this application, giving the flexibility, professional performance and road-tough durability that is as necessary as the quality of the sound.The MRX line is a high quality portable PA that is truly portable. It's a perfect solution for houses of worship, schools or any event space that requires a mobile system. If you need a PA that is as easy to store as it is to use - compact, powerful and manageable, the MRX500 Series is your choice for sound on the move, even when it's just to the next room.
