AUTHOR: Inavate

JBL Professional, a Harman brand, has bolstered its AE Series with a range of all weather loudspeakers, the AW Series.

The models are high-power, lightweight, two-way, full-range loudspeaker systems.

The JBL AW Series features five different loudspeaker models: the AW295, AW266, AW526, AW595, and AW566. The loudspeakers are comprised of JBL’s Differential Drive dual voice coil and dual magnetic gap low-frequency 12- and 15-inch woofers, and 2432H high-frequency 38mm (1.5 inch) exit, 75mm (3 inch) voice coil compression driver. The large-format Progressive Transition waveguides provide high-frequency coverage patterns. The waveguides are rotatable so the loudspeaker system can be used in either a vertical or horizontal orientation.

The enclosures are constructed of multilayer glass composite and are heavily braced to maximize low-frequency performance. The 14-gauge stainless steel grille, backed with open cell foam and stainless steel mesh.

The AW Series speakers are equipped with a 400W 70/100V transformer. A heavy-duty stainless steel U-type mounting bracket is included and allows for easy installation on flat surfaces or in 90-degree corners.
