Since the launch of the very first EON systems in 1995 they have proven to be the loudspeaker system that is all things to everyone and as such remain the best selling powered speaker in professional audio history; congratulations on your choice! You have now just invested in the next generation of EON, and like the previous versions remain the portable, practical, and powerful choice of industry professionals as well as amateur enthusiasts alike. While retaining the durability and quality of previous generations, the new EONs also offer a host of improvements over the previous models. First and foremost are higher-quality components such as transducers with Differential Drive technology, which perform better while weighing less. The built-in amplifiers are more powerful, the design more portable and user-friendly, and the addition of mounting and flying points add up to an even more useful and flexible package. In their quest to be everything for everybody, the EON Series loudspeakers offer unparalleled flexibility and scalability to provide a variety of solutions for every sound reinforcement need. There are five models in the series four full-range systems and a subwoofer. Three of the full-range models are powered and one passive. Why passive? A passive version offers the acoustic and physical features to those who just want to upgrade their speakers. With proper care your EON Series speakers should provide you with many years of flawless performance, and are flexible enough to be a part of your sound reinforcement system even as it grows in scope. 4 Before You Begin - Important Information Before using your EON speaker system please review the following for important information on safety and protection of your investment in quality loudspeakers. 1. Read these instructions. 2. Keep these instructions. 3. Heed all warnings. 4. Follow all instructions. 5. Do not use this apparatus near water. 6. Clean only with dry cloth. 7. Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in accordance with the manufacturer s instructions. 8. Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat. 9. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than the other. A grounding-type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the third prong is provided for your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for replacement of the obsolete outlet. 10. Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched, particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the apparatus. 11. Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer. 12. Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table specified by the manufacturer, or sold with the apparatus. When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart/apparatus combination to avoid injury from tip-over. 13. Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time. 14. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is required when the apparatus has been damaged in any way, such as power supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the apparatus, the apparatus has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped. 15. Service Instruction in Owner s Manual: CAUTION - THESE SERVICING INSTRUCTIONS ARE FOR USE BY QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL ONLY. TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK DO NOT PERFORM ANY SERVICING OTHER THAN THAT CONTAINED IN THE OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS UNLESS YOU ARE QUALIFIED TO DO SO. 16. To completely disconnect this apparatus from the AC mains, disconnect the power supply cord plug from the AC receptacle. 17. WARNING TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS APPARATUS TO RAIN OR MOISTURE. 18. Do not expose this equipment to dripping or splashing and ensure that no objects filled with liquids, such as vases, are placed on the equipment. 19. The mains plug of the power supply cord shall remain readily operable. 5 Section 2: Precautions Watch For These Symbols The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the user to the presence of uninsulated. Dangerous Voltage within the products enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons. The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance (Servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the product. AC Power Requirements Before plugging an EON speaker into an outlet ensure that it is able to provide the appropriate AC power. EON speaker systems have been designed to automatically detect 115V or 230V AC mains voltage 50/60 Hz. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES OPERATE THE UNIT WITH AN AC POWER SUPPLY LESS THAN 100V OR GREATER THAN 240V. DOING SO MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS DAMAGE TO YOUR SPEAKER SYSTEM WHICH WILL NOT BE COVERED BY WARRANTY. A robust AC supply is necessary for maximum performance. If the supply is too weak the bass performance may be affected and if it sags (drops) too much the system may self-mute to protect itself. As soon as the appropriate AC supply is restored it will continue to operate. Plugging multiple systems into the same outlet and long extension cord runs may affect the AC supply to the systems. CAUTION In compliance with safety agency criteria and proper system operation, it is critical that the system installer observe all electrical safety practices at all times and provide proper earth grounding for all AC Power connections. EON Power Amplifiers - Operating Temperature The design of the EON amplifier is such that it is very energy efficient and as a result does not get really hot. In the rare event that it does get too hot it will automatically shut down to protect itself. When its temperature has returned to within its operating range it will turn back on. A condition under which this may occur is when the system is operated in very high ambient temperatures and the heat sink on the rear of the enclosure is in direct sunlight. Always ensure adequate cooling and appropriate shade. Care and Maintenance While your EON speakers are rugged and will provide years of service, some common sense care in handling will prevent damage and preserve appearance. If your speakers will be frequently moved, consider a padded carrying bag. If your EON speakers have been subjected to prolonged exposure to extreme low temperatures, avoid subjecting them to heavy mechanical shock and warm the speakers up by playing at a low volume for one hour before playing at loud levels. Keep the exterior of the speaker enclosure clean. Clean only with a dry cloth. EON speakers are not intended for fixed installation in outdoor environments. Moisture can damage the speaker cone and surround, cause corrosion of electrical contacts, and create an electrical shock hazard. Protect your speakers from moisture. Avoid exposing the speakers to direct moisture. Any electrically powered device can produce dangerous shock hazards when wet or exposed to moisture. Keep speakers out of extended or intense direct sunlight. The driver s integrity may be affected and finished surfaces will be degraded by long-term exposure to intense ultra-violet (UV) light. 6 THIS APPARATUS CONTAINS POTENTIALLY LETHAL VOLTAGES. TO PREVENT ELECTRIC SHOCK OR HAZARD, DO NOT REMOVE CHASSIS, INPUT MODULE OR AC INPUT COVERS. NO USER SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE. REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL. Mounting / Suspending EON Speakers EON speakers are designed for portable applications in which the speakers will be stacked directly on the floor, stage, speaker stands, or a solid, stable platform. When placed on a smooth surface such as polished wood or linoleum, the speakers may move due to acoustical energy output. Precautions should be taken to assure that the speaker does not fall off the stage or table on which it is placed. Optional accessory items are available from JBL Professional and after-market suppliers to facilitate suspension and wall /ceiling mounting of EON speakers. Only those items recommended by JBL Professional should be used. When using these items, review all enclosed documentation and carefully follow all instructions and safety precautions. CAUTION: Suspension of EON speakers should be done by qualified persons following safe rigging standards and practices. Unsafe mounting or overhead suspension of any heavy load can result in serious injury and equipment damage. CAUTION: When suspending this product carefully follow JBL instructions and local ordinances. Do not attempt to use unless you have read and understood all instructions including the JBL User s Guide. Attachment of the loudspeaker to a supporting structure should be referred to a qualified professional. Stand Mounting Safety Precautions EON series full range models include a 36 mm receptacle cup to allow mounting on tripod stands or on a pole over subwoofers. When using stands or poles, be sure to observe the following precautions: EON speakers include a thumb-screw that must be tightened to secure the speaker to the tripod stand. Before mounting the speaker on the stand, be sure to loosen the screw so that it doesn t prevent the pole from fully penetrating the socket. Check the stand or pole specification to be certain the device is designed to support the weight of the speaker. Observe all safety precautions specified by the manufacturer. Always verify that the stand (or subwoofer/pole) is placed on a flat, level and stable surface and be sure to fully extend the legs of tripod type stands. Position the stand so that the legs do not present a trip hazard. Route cables so that performers, production crew, and audience will not trip and topple the speakers over. Inspect the stand (or pole and associated hardware) before each use and do not use equipment with worn, damaged or missing parts. Do not attempt to place more than one EON series speaker on a stand or pole. Always be cautious in windy, outdoor conditions. It may be necessary to place additional weight (i.e. sandbags) on the base of the stand to improve stability. Avoid attaching banners or similar items to any part of a speaker system. Such attachments could act as a sail and topple the system. Unless you are confident that you can handle the weight of the speaker, ask another person to help you get it onto the tripod stand or pole. Hearing Damage, Prolonged Exposure to Excessive SPL EON series loudspeakers are easily capable of generating sound pressure levels (SPL) sufficient to cause permanent hearing damage to performers, production crew and audience members. Caution should be taken to avoid prolonged exposure to SPL in excess of 90 db. 7 Declaration Of Conformity Safety And EMC Compliance Specifications EN :1997 Electromagnetic Compatibility - Product Family Standard for Audio, Video, Audio-Visual and Entertainment Lighting Control Apparatus for Professional Use, Part 1: Emissions EN :1997 Magnetic Field Emissions-Annex 10 cm and 20 cm EN 55022:2003 Limits and Methods of Measurement of Radio Disturbance Characteristics of ITE: Radiated, Class B Limits; Conducted, Class A EN :1997 Electromagnetic Compatibility - Product Family Standard for Audio, Video, Audio-Visual and Entertainment Lighting Control Apparatus for Professional Use, Part 2: Immunity EN : A2:2001 Electrostatic Discharge Immunity (Environment E2-criteria B, 4 kv Contact, 8 kv Air discharge) EN :2003 Radiated, Radio-frequency, Electromagnetic Immunity (Environment E2, criteria A) EN :2005 Electrical Fast Transient/Burst Immunity (criteria B) EN :2001 Surge Immunity (criteria B) EN :1996 Immunity to Conducted Disturbances Induced by Radio-Frequency Fields (criteria A) EN :2004 Voltage Dips, Short Interruptions and Voltage Variation UL nd Edition 1999 Audio/Video and Musical Instruments Apparatus for Household, Commercial, and Similar General Use IEC 60065_2001 / EN 60065_ A1: A11:2008 UL Compliance Specifications UL th Ed.

Packaging Contents Your EON515XT system should include the following: 1 x EON515XT speaker 1 x 10'(3m) IEC Power Cable 1 x User s Guide 1. Refer to the Application Examples with EON515XT in Section Turn the INPUT 1, 2, and 3 controls fully counter-clockwise. 3. Set the MIC/LINE switch: If a microphone will be connected directly to INPUT 3, set the MIC/LINE switch to the MIC position (depressed). The MIC LED will illuminate when power is turned on. If a mixer, CD player, cassette tape, or electronic musical instrument (the source ) will be connected directly to INPUT 3, set the MIC/LINE switch to the LINE position (disengaged). 4. Set the EQ controls to the center position. 5. Plug the power cable into a properly grounded 3-wire AC power outlet 6. Plug the XLR cable from the mixer or microphone into the INPUT 3 connector. 7. Connect other sources (if used) to the LINE 1 and LINE 2 input connectors. 8. POWER-UP PROCEDURE The main power switch is located on the input panel on the back of the enclosure. Always ensure that the speaker system is the last thing you power-up, and the first thing to turn off when operating your complete PA system. If speaker systems are daisy chained together always turn off the last system in the chain first. Power on is indicated by the illumination of the logo on the front of the enclosure and the power on LED. First, switch on the power to the mixer, audio sources, or musical instruments that are feeding your EON. Next, turn on the power switch. Reverse this process when shutting down your system. 9. SET VOLUME If you are using an audio mixing console, refer to the manufacturer s instructions to properly set gain structure. Turn up your sources to the level that will be used in performance and talk, sing or play into the system. Bring the INPUT 3 control up (clockwise) until the desired volume has been reached. If you are using a microphone, turn the INPUT 3 control up slowly to avoid feedback. If you are using the INPUT 1 and INPUT 2 inputs, bring the INPUT 1 and INPUT 2 controls up until the desired volume has been reached. 10. CHECK THE LIMIT LED The LIMIT indicator flashes when the loudspeaker s on-board amplifiers are approaching maximum output. Occasional flashes are normal for very loud operation.
