The 718 and 728 use 18mm 13-ply birch plywood.
The rest of the line is 15mm 11-ply birch plywood.
Yes, and they talk about a bit about bracing:

"SRX700 is constructed of top quality birch plywood and coated in JBL's rugged DuraFlex™ finish. Extensive use of internal braces and bulkheads makes the enclosures extremely rigid. This reduces acoustic losses caused by panel resonance. "

There is no bracing in the 712M - I wouldn't think any is necessary as the cabinet is a compact 13.75 in x 21.5 in x 10.25 in.  

The real key to their light-weight are the neodymium motors, both on the 2262HPL differntial-drive woofers and the 2431H CD (3-inch).  The aluminum baskets on the 2262HPL are very stout, but incredibly light, as is the motor.  The baskets give great access if they were to ever need a recone, but that is pretty unlikely.  Not sure I wanna try and align that triple VC anyway...  Rolling Eyes

Here's a composite pic of the 2262HPL, and the EQ settings saved in my Protea RD compared to those of an EV wedge.

We recently made the SRX 712M our main wedge.  We have used it for front fill, stage monitor, and on top of a sub for small shows.  We use the SRX 725's for side fill and drum box.  We power everything with CROWN XS 1200's.  We bridge mono the sidefills  and drum box (passive) with amazing results.  We can run the wedges passive or bi amped, but, we have found the difference is minimal through our DBX 260's.  It has been very nice this past year to hear " Turn it down" rather than " I can't hear."

I own 8 of these and am looking for 6 more! two 712s per mix or one on top of an 18" or double 15" sub makes the deafest drummer deafer! Really quite impressive for their versatility. I did a small show at a venue with a broken freight elevator for a corporate cover band and ended up using four for monitors and four for mains with a couple of single 18s and 4 plx3602s from my monitor rig and a backup mixwizard. the 12 trips up and down stairs still sucked, but not as much as it would have with my old 122s and 155s. The band was skeptical until after the first set . This little rig was much better on my back and I didn't get any grumbling after the show. I'm running a hotel gig right now with eight of these and 2 728 subs and it's going great!

Hey did you purchase the SRX715M or the VRX915M? Where is the 715M available, I cannot find them, the 712M is an excellent wedge, I'm sure the 715M would be even sweeter, but I was told the next in line is the VRX 915M, please clarify?

There is no 715M in the SRX line up. The 712 is the only designated floor monitor in the line, the SRX715 doesnt have the right angles for monitor use. There is a VRX915M monitor, and it doesnt have a pole cup socket. There is also a VRX915S, which is a small 15" sub.

I have 10 x SRX712M & 4 x SRX718 Subs,
I think they are a great box and would definitely rate them in the pro section of JBL's line up rather than MI products
I use them for everything , Corporate speakers on sticks. Band FOH (with subs) ,
Stage Monitors etc
I Also have a VRX 932LAP FOH System & the 712's double as great monitor box to complement the VRX  

Yeah you can really here the directivity of the VRX over the SRX but the SRX is still a good reasonably directional box at a great price point & compares well against other 12" products from other major manufacturers

It will work but they'll be wanting more.

If it gets loud enough for you and sounds good to you, then it's good!

The 722 is rated at 1,200w RMS.

So most would recommend an amp between 1,800 and 2,400w.
