CLASS-LEADING OUTPUT AND CLARITY

The IRX Series draws from seven decades of legendary JBL engineering to deliver an ultra-portable, reliable system designed to outperform similar competing systems—and some bigger systems, too. IRX series loudspeakers produce the highest measured volume and widest frequency response in their class, with SPL, wattage and performance ratings equivalent to much larger loudspeakers.

BLUETOOTH 5.0 AND AUDIO STREAMING

JBL is the world leader in portable Bluetooth speakers, with more than 100 million units sold. The reason is simple: great sound, with great functionality. The IRX series is no different, and represents some of our most powerful and professional Bluetooth speakers to date. IRX series loudspeakers feature high-bandwidth Bluetooth 5.0 audio streaming, which lets you play backing tracks, video soundtracks or recorded music between sets with superior audio quality. You can even quickly link two speakers to create a true stereo image and extend functional range. Two XLR/TRS combo inputs and an XLR loop-out for connecting additional speakers round out I/O options.

TAKE THE GUESSWORK OUT OF GREAT SOUND

Sound your best in seconds with EQ presets modeled after a range of common performance scenarios. And Bass Boost will add that powerful, musical low end that JBL is known for to your performances or DJ sets. Built-in dbx AFS Automatic Feedback Suppression protects speakers—and your ears—by automatically stopping feedback at the push of a button. One-touch ducking automatically lowers music volume when speech input is detected, ensuring every word is heard loud and clear.

POWERFUL GETS MORE PORTABLE

IRX loudspeakers are engineered to deliver big-system sound in a compact footprint. Their ultra-lightweight, durable polypropylene cabinet will have you loading in and out in minutes, and ergonomic handles make transport a breeze. In short, you’ll enjoy big, crystal-clear sound without the hassle of hauling a huge system.
