Question about JBL EON-1500 Main / Stereo Speaker

1 Answer

We understand that your problem is: I have two jbl eon 15 two way (non powered) speakers. recently heard a loud crack through them (mic was not on)and since then my music and my voice now sounds really tinny, toppy whatever i am not a techead as yu can tell. I use a shure sm58 beta radio mic and i have a spirit by soundcraft 800 mixing desk amp. All i know is it doesnt sound right and they dont seem to have the volume they used to have or that nice mix of voice and music. I am also now experiencing more feedback at the bass end and the top end which I rarely used to get before this pop. I have to take the top right off the music and my voice to stop the feedback and i never had to do this before.could be just a coincindence or culd this have blown something insde the speaker or could it be a cable or something I dont know where to start. my desk has been serviced and all checked out and no probs there, some guy measured the sound of all my knobs with a meter thingy and said that was fine too on all channels and frequencys. so any ideas cause it is driving me nuts.

Likely a bass pin or tweeter has gone. Drop all on eq and then just turn bass/low up. Try each speaker separate. Then both together. They should sound exactly the same. Then repeat for high end. You'll find the suspect this way.

SOURCE: Hi I am a solo

It sounds like the Power Amplifier shot a big jolt of DC Voltage to the Speakers and opened the Woofers. If this was the case the speakers would read open and not the 8 ohms they should.
If this happened than your horns will be the only thing working and this would give you a tin bucket voice. Have your Engineer check your Amplifier................. Larry

My jbl eon 15 g2 smell like burnt and everything works but the big speaker


The voice coil in the big speaker could have been damaged if driven to loud. See if the burnt smell is strongest near the center of the big speaker. If the voice coil is fried, you may be able to still find a replacement as there is a part number for the voice coil (V/C Assy, EON-G2220-27005-00) and the cone (EONG2
Cone Repl. C2REON15P-2)

Loud buzz/hum started on jbl eon 1500 powered speaker one side only after power cut off and sudden power back on makes same noise on it`s own as well as with mixer etc could this be a transformer...


For some reason the soft on protection circuit has failed. it is not a simple fix and would require the amplifier module to be removed from the speaker to assess the damage.

I get a loud intermitant buzz from one of my JBL eon 15-G2 speaker, no music signal just buzz. What is the problem do you think...? EQ circuit problem, speaker cones seem to be intact.


If you turn the unit on with no input and get a loud buzz, and when you put signal to it and you cannot hear the music but the buzz (Probably more like a hum). Then most likely the amp is blown.

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!!!

JBL EON G2 15 loud noise.


The noise may be the reason why the speakers were available used. The tweeter may be defective.

Jbl eon


the eon woofer is designed to fit the small frame of the inside cabinet. The EV woofers look too deep to fit but you can try. I do think that the built in amps were set to work with only the JBL woofers so there might be a signal problem using the built in amp. The eon face seems to have their own screws to hold the grill so if they aren't holding you can drop some cement to help hold the srews in place. The front does not allow removal of the woofer so it seems whatever you do should not effect anything.

Jbl eon g2 problem!


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?

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.
