New J series
More technology for improved performance and quality value for money
The new J series is a technologically advanced range of products that improves on the performance of the previous Jolly line. The new J series is a competitive, value for money range of speakers. The range is based on the development of three new high efficiency class-D amplifiers with power specifications of 350 + 100W for the J 15A & J 12A, 200 + 50W for the J 8A and 80 + 40W for the J 5A. These amplifiers have been designed ‘from the ground up’ in FBT’s R&D laboratories. The largest amplifier model that equips the J 15A and J 12A has a switch mode power supply as well as a digital signal processor with 4 pre-sets. The J 8A and J 5A amplifiers have toroidal transformer power supplies. The J 8A has a digital signal processor with 2 pre-sets, whilst the J 5A has analog signal processing. The speakers have been completely redesigned, introducing the technological developments of recent years to achieve a far superior efficiency and linearity. Following from the new J series, FBT bring you the DJ 15A, designed with today’s modern DJ in mind. The DJ 15A has invaluable features allowing quality audio playback using our revolutionary DSP technology. This includes 4 presets enabling the DJ to change the sound of their music to suit the environment they play within. These DSP presets will allow the DJs audience to enjoy improved sound quality and SPL, especially in bass reproduction at high volume. The DJ 15A also has another useful feature for DJs, including a two channel input mixer allowing the DJ to plug a music source and microphone direct into the speaker, giving separate control over volume for both devices. You can also daisy chain these speaker together if required. Ideal for many application of today’s modern DJ.
The new FBT J MaxX series combines ease of use and versatility for many portable or installed sound applications: musicians, DJs, AVL contractors, rental sound reinforcement, corporate events, houses of worship, bars and clubs. With its eye-catching gas-injected forms designed to virtually eliminate undesired enclosure resonance and reinforce strong low frequency performance, the JMaxX series of powered loudspeakers is available in three elegantly crafted two-way models: the 14-inch J MaxX 114A; the 12-inch J MaxX 112A; and the 10-inch J MaxX 110A. All are equipped with FBT’s latest 90° x 60° HF horn design which delivers improved projection, accuracy, and dispersion of the mid and high frequencies. Providing a myriad of possibilities for bands, DJs and solo artists, as well as for permanent installations, each
J MaxX model is actually four loudspeakers in one. Derived from a decade of experience of portable sound reinforcement, the carefully tailored equalisation presets offer highly intelligible response for vocals and floor monitoring; slightly boosted response in lounge bar applications; punchy and forward sound for DJs and night venues; and a general-purpose EQ setting that mirrors the original and familiar FBTMaxX voicing.
Common to all J MaxX models is FBT’s latest generation lightweight 700W + 200W Class D power amplifier with universal switch mode power supply, delivering abundant power and headroom to reproduce even the largest transients without distortion. XLR inputs and outputs, volume control, the EQ presets and filters, and ground lift switch are all conveniently located on a clearly laid out rear panel, making loudspeaker setup and operation intuitive and consistently repeatable.
J MaxX’s versatility is further underscored by the many mounting and fixing options that the ergonomically styled cabinets provide. Mounting in fixed installations is made easy using the M10 suspension points or wall bracket flange plates, while portable use is facilitated by the built-in 35mm pole mount socket.
There’s no need for separate stage monitors, as J MaxX’s cabinet profiles are designed with 12°, 40°, and 55° wedge angles, and when used with the specific floor monitoring EQ presets, will ensure that performers hear themselves with ultimate clarity.
