JBL EON 510
« on: May 16, 2011, 02:21:12 pm »

I'm looking a building a new sound system for our youth band, which currently meets in our fellowship hall. I'm looking at a pair of the EON 510s, probably with a matching EON sub. What do you guys think about the 510s, if you've used them?

Are you at your limit with your budget? If not I would tell you to spend a few extra $ for something like EV's new powered speakers that really are not much more than the Eons. for a few more dollars QSC K10's or K12's over KW181 subs and in JBL's line up, PRX612 over PRX618XLF subs.

Honestly not sure what my budget is. :) I'm just trying to get some different opinions and find a few different options to present. Thanks for your input!

What is the space like?  What instruments do you run through the system, what kind of music do you play, how loud do you want to get, etc.?  What would the rest of the system be?  What are your expectations for the system and what led you to specifically consider the EON 510s?  It would really help to have some basis for any suggestions, without that or any idea of the budget then the responses could be all over the place and may have little relevance to your application.

It's a rectangular room with a carpeted floor and tiled ceiling, normally with chairs or tables setup in it. The music played through the system would normally be contemporary praise music with a drumset, electric and acoustic guitars, bass, and a few vocals. It would need to be between 90-100 dB. I saw this setup offered, http://bit.ly/jxn7P9 so that's what got me considering them, since it looks like a decent deal. I don't want to spend more than about $6,000 if I can help it.

I wasn't clear, but an important factor could be the size of the rectangular room or at least of the listener area.  What works for a 20'x25' room with a 10' ceiling may not work for a 50'x100' room with a 25' ceiling.

Do you plan to mic the drums and bass and run them through the system or do you see them being loud enough for the space without being in the mix?  Running bass and kick through teh system and possibly putting mics on the entire drum kit could affect the system significantly, the first in the low frequency response needed and the second in the number of mixer inputs needed.

Is that $6,000 for the speakers and processor or $6,000 total for the entire new sound system?  If the latter, do you have any existing equipment or are you starting from scratch?

Rob, I'm in Greenville, SC.

The room is about 40'x20', with probably a 12'-15' ceiling. The bass and kick would most likely be miked, but the rest of the kit normally isn't. I'm looking at an entire sound system, i.e. speakers, mixer, possibly some wireless, etc... After talking with some of my superiors, we may be able to increase the budget a bit, but the more bang for our buck, the better.

The Eon's are 100 degree dispersion speakers - way to wide for a rectangular room like this unless you don't mind a lot of sound splashing off walls OR the chance for feedback with the band or both. Speaking of the band, will they have any monitors (speakers or in-ears)?

I agree with an earlier poster - are there any sound design consultants in the area that can visit (and hear the room) and design a system (including specing out all the correct cabling) that meets the requirements and then Chase could order a decent system that is designed for for what he needs and buy the appropriate gear "once". Many of us will charge an hourly rate, that given a few hours, can save $ for most churches that try to do it on there own....

Just a thought....

Monitors will most likely be speakers, some type of wedges.
