Bluetooth, Ducking, Feedback Suppression Built-In
Whilst simple in operation, don’t think that the IRX hasn’t got any bells and whistles!
The IRX series features Bluetooth 5.0 streaming for audio playback from any Bluetooth enabled iOS, Android, or laptop device. With much greater reliability and a wider range when compared to older Bluetooth technology, the IRX allows you to reliably play Bluetooth audio directly to the speaker output – perfect for streaming background music in-between sets or singing along to backing tracks from your phone.
The IRX range also features a Ducking feature that is perfect for public addressing and presenters. “Ducking” temporarily reduces the volume of the Bluetooth playback when a signal is detected at the IRX’s input channels. This means that you can have music playing at a decent volume, but when you speak into a microphone, the music drops in volume allowing your announcement to ring loud and clear. When you’ve said what you needed to say, the music returns back to the previous volume – and you can do all of that with one hand on your pint.
With a phonebook as big as Harman’s, JBL are not in short supply when it comes to integrating even more unique technologies into their loudspeakers. The IRX range features dbx’s acclaimed AFS (automated Feedback Suppression) technology that detects troublesome feedback and nips it in the bud. Simply engage it using the dedicated rear panel switch and you can play safe in the knowledge that feedback is at bay.
