JBL Launches New App and Firmware Update for PRX800-Series Loudspeakers

JBL has announced a free app and firmware update that lets PRX800 customers get the sound they are looking for faster than ever.

What’s new in the PRX800 V2 firmware update? Through customer research, they've learned that PRX800 customers typically do two things immediately upon set up: turn up the bass EQ and input gain. The PRX800 V2 firmware update now adds two default settings that ensure optimal sound, out of the box, and the ability to revert back to the speaker’s previous default settings.

New in the PRX800 V2 Firmware Update:

Enhanced Bass Tuning (PRX812 and PRX815): This new default tuning preset features enhanced low frequencies. You will immediately notice a warmer and fuller tone and will be particularly impressed when playing bass-heavy music including pop, hip hop and EDM. (A flat tuning is also available.)

More Control over Input Gain (all models except subwoofers): Line-level inputs now include options for Hi and Lo input sensitivity settings. Lo input sensitivity is pre-set by the update, which will result in louder playback by default without having to touch the Input Gain knob. You can switch to Hi input sensitivity, the previous default setting, with a simple flip of a switch in the PRX Connect App.

This free upgrade provides a fresh way to experience their full power, clarity and nuance, as well as showcase the robust capabilities of the PRX Connect App.

The PRX800-series V2 firmware update is available now in the latest versions of the PRX Connect App for Android and iOS, downloadable through Google Play and Apple App Store. Starting March 4, HARMAN began shipping JBL PRX800-series loudspeakers with V2 firmware pre-installed. To learn more, visit jblpro.com/prx800.
