Gearank Recommendation

The PRX815W appeared on our recommended list for Powered PA Speakers from October 2020 until May 2021 when it was removed due to being out-ranked by other speakers.


JBL is easily one of the most popular brands when it comes to sound reinforcement, and the PRX815W is a good example of why people love the brand.

This powered speaker packs a lot of features for the price, starting with its 15″ woofer and 1500W amp, down to its modern features which include Wi-Fi compatibility.

Speaking of Wi-Fi, this feature lets you conveniently control the speaker’s settings via a dedicated app.

It also sports a DBX limiter that kicks in to protect your unit from high volume damage.

With its 15″ woofer and big-brand backing, the JBL Professional PRX815W will make a great addition to any setup.
