Alternate Use for JBL Eon 510
« on: July 24, 2014, 11:39:49 am »

3 out of 4 of our eons are dead. A replacement pc board from JBL is $160.00. They won't sell just the discreet component. Throwing $160 at a speaker that's selling new for $299 doesn't make sense to me.

Instead of just trashing them I'm thinking of bypassing the internal amp and using an external power amp. Buy some nice wall mounts and do a permanent install in our studio for rehersals.

Any other ideas?

Which component do you need?  I have replaced the HF amplifier IC on 15" Eons before.

Have you confirmed that you are getting the proper voltage to the chip, compared to the working 510?

I've been considering buying some Eon 510 speakers for my own use. I do very low volume performances in nursing homes. I like the idea of a 17 pound speaker. Should I reconsider? What caused all your failures? Were they being abused?

No abuse. Junk. Buy Yamaha dxr10 instead.
