Question about JBL EON 15-G2 Powered DJ Speaker With EQ Speaker

2 Answers

Jbl eon g2 problem!

I own two eon g2's but one of em is acting up. the speaker powers on and the light on the back flashes, suggesting it is receiving the signal from my mixer. but for some reason, no sound is emitted unless i turn the volume up to near max, but even then its all bass and nothing else. what might be the problem? sound emerges when i engage the mic line switch, but in this case everything clips. any help would be greatly appreciated!

    thanks for the suggestions! i'm a mobile dj so i do use them at a high volume (though I haven't used them that frequently as of late). I haven't checked the fuse yet, how do you do that? do you think any of these problems might be caused by transportation of equipment at all? and it banging against other equipment?

    also to add, the speaker actually seems to work fine when i engage the mic button in the back, crisply and loudly, except its exceptionally prone to clipping and going out at this point -- but this seems to be backwards from the usually logic of how this speaker should be used. help!

This happened to me before but no with powered speakers. I doubt it is the speakers fault. I believe it is just the connection between the speaker and your mixer. You might have plugged it in the wrong place or might.

Could be any number of things, the amp may be damaged (do you use these things at high volume?) but if you are only getting bass it could be a fault on the crossover circuitry. Could be a loose wire inside but the build quality on JBL is pretty good so I doubt that.

How long ago did you buy them? If it was recent you may be able to take them back to the shop, otherwise I'd seek a professional repairman.

Btw, did you check the fuse?

    not sure about your exact speaker but the fuse on actives is usually in the back somewhere, a round black circle about 1/2 inch diameter with a screw slot in it. Unscrew it and it comes out with the fuse mounted on the other side. If its working ok in mic mode then its probably not the fuse, I'd take it into a music shop for repair.



    And yes if you are a mobile DJ I'd seriously think about getting some flight cases.

I installed a brand new tweeter in my JBL EON 15 G2 & the new tweeter blew. What else could be the problem?


These are "powered" speakers and any little bit
of distortion can be amplified enough to "blow" it!
Also the amp could be "shorted"! Have your JBL
dealer test it!!!

My JBL EON cuts out from time to time (usually when there is a lot of base) and will go back on with a good tap to the side. It has been in for repair and has some solder joints checked and re-soldered. ...


hi there... i have same problem and i believe the main amp (part 339555-001 EON 15 G2) have to be replaced. jbl prosound sell it for $112.80 and you need to do the job yourself, which is not too big deal but not too easy either.
i did not start yet.
please post later if you did it. thanks.good luck. joel.

JBL Eon G2 Speaker


from our experience rebuilding woofers once the lead wires get pulled too much or start to strain you have been running too much power into the woofer and making the cone move too far in and out.You need to cut the input signal from your preamp down and cut the volume down on the speaker input on you eon. We keep seeing too many of these amped speakers blown from too much signal.

JBL EON 15 G2 clicks and pops


my son and i fixed an eon a decade ago that had this problem. we swept a sine wave through the audio spectrum and discovered it started barking somewhere around a low D on the piano.
Turns out the mains connection was intermittent right where it enters the eon from the wall. Soldered the ac power connections and the problem went away.
