That's what I understood it to mean as well. But it seemed a bit high to me...? I emailed back to clarify and never got a reply.  :(

Call them if you want a response. I've never had luck with emailing JBL.

Correct me if I'm wrong... those JBLs are going to draw anywhere from next to nothing all the way up to 5.2 amps, depending on how hard I'm pushing them? However, going by what I discovered with the power meter, they're "probably" going to not draw too much more than the Yorkvilles do under "MY" normal usage?

Expansion more than correction:  it depends.  Yeah.  Mostly it depends on any difference between the Yorkies and JBLs in how much electricity it takes to make equal SPL.  The reality is that about 5.6 Amperes is "Full Tilt Boogie" and it looks like that's a brick wall of some kind.

Use #12 AWG extension cords.  Use the shortest length you can for each run.  Don't put more than 12 Amperes of load on a 15 amp circuit; 17 Amperes loading on a 20 amp circuit.  At that point you've done all you can do and you're at the mercy of the facility wiring.

Well, I heard back from JBL:

I think it was all just a type error.
The product is still the same.

Your probably never going to have them above 3 amps.
At 3 amps these speakers are extremely loud!
 
Most DJ’s never have enough volume and push the hell out of everything they have.
 
It’s all variable.
Depending on how loud you need it.
 
Basically Normal is an opinion….


I ordered a pair today.  ;)
