  1. Jim Noakes

    Great for multiple uses.This is a great all in one product, I really dig the sound quality. Honestly this sounds as good as my Sennheiser headphones that use a decent DAC.Disadvantages:1) Not as loud or full as a bigger PA speaker.2) Not a wireless portable speaker.3) Needs a powered subwoofer to really kick more expensive systems.Advantages:1) Decent mixing options on 8 ch: mono, stereo and Bluetooth.2) Great volume for an 8 inch driver. 121 db is the same as the tops of an L1 line array.3) decent bass frequency for an 8 inch (still prefer with sub).4) Has a switching sub crossover so basically if you plug an active (powered) sub into it, it won’t play the lows through the main driver and the mids sounds better. A 300w sub basically makes this speaker like a full L1 system for a decent amount less money.5) Decent audio quality.6) speakers are extremely light so putting them on stands is easy.7) Phantom power and high z for guitar (not all channels, also with a guitar you should mic up the guitar or amp box of it is electric as this is a flat amp and guitar doesn’t sound as good as a git amp).

    Mostly great but one big flaw.I’d love to give this PA system 4, even 5 stars, but frankly it doesn’t deserve it. And depending on your planned usage, it may not even deserve 3 stars. I’ll explain.Minor Quibbles:JBL seems to have adopted Apple’s approach of “It’s so easy to use you don’t need a manual” — and so, they don’t include one. Not a huge deal, and you can find a User Guide on the JBL website, but come on, JBL, you couldn’t include a measly 16-page manual? On the other hand, there are errors in the manual — it misidentifies the sub-woofer output and Channel 7/8 inputs as RCA-plugs when they’re actually 1/4″ TRS and two 1/4″ TS receptacles respectively. Maybe omitting a manual with bad information is a good thing.The Bluetooth input works well, though there is no volume control for that channel. The Master Volume level will adjust it, of course, but if you want to mix a Mic input with the Bluetooth, you’ll have to adjust the volume level at the Bluetooth source device (phone, laptop, etc.). Bluetooth pairing is straightforward — just press the “Bluetooth Pair” button. The range seems decent but not exceptional.The Good:The sound quality is terrific for the unit’s price point. I mean, these aren’t the greatest speakers on the planet, but they sound very, very good, particularly if you get them off the floor. The Bass/Treble/Reverb controls work well. The controls feel good, the layout is clean. The unit packs up neatly. Latches are secure. There’s plenty of built-in storage for mics and cables. It has Monitor/Line-Out capabilities. It has Sub-woofer Out. It has Headphone out. I really want to love this unit…The Bad:The pre-amp circuits on all 4 mic channels are pathetic. Using either the included AKG vocal mic and its cable, or a Shure SM-58 with Shure cable, I have to crank the Mic level to Max and the Master Level to 75% to get a comfortable listening level in a 20×20 room. If I want to mix that with tracks from a laptop or what-have-you, I have to set that input very low, and it’s difficult to balance levels when you’re working within one degree on the Volume Level knob. I thought perhaps there was a problem with my unit so I called JBL Tech Support, They confirmed this is a frequent complaint with the EON208P. They also suggested trying a few really cheap mics as they’re often “hotter”. How nice.Is there a work-around? Of course. Buy an external Mic pre-amp. Which is what I did (a BEHRINGER TUBE ULTRAGAIN MIC200 works well but it’s only one channel). Problem solved for an extra $50. Am I happy that I had to do that? Resoundingly, no. The EON208P product manager should be ashamed. So should JBL. In all other respects, it’s a great unit, and there’s nothing else on the market with the same feature set at anywhere near the price point so spending an extra $50 made sense for me. Of course, if you need 4 mics at once, then the pre-amps add $200 and maybe the EON208P isn’t such a good fit.

    Good sound and portability.For its size, this system offers great sound and power. Very portable, the storage space for the cables is a plus. The mixing board has its limitations, is pretty basic, however, does what is supposed to do.The bluetooth is great and easy to set up. Sounds great indoors and outdoors.Make no mistake, this is no 15 inch; – 1000w loud speaker, and to get the most out of this system you need a subwoofer. I paired it with a Bose F1 sub, and have no complaints: it’s loud and clear. I would guess this is perfect for events up to 50 maybe 75 people.Reliability… I guess is too early to tell.Update…. issues with the locking system (the speakers don’t stay together all the time) however… an additional strap/bungee cord could fix the problem.Update 04-15-2020 – Upgrade from 4 to 5 star “minus” system still works well, great quality.Update 04-25-2022 – system still works great

  5. TexasBookReader

    Nice compact system with good sound, easy to pack up and unpack. Worth every cent.Loved the carrying case feel of it (it is heavy, but at least it is like a suitcase), music input options, 4 mic capacity. Comes with a mic with an on/off switch. Cords are long. All packs into the speaker system. Did have to buy stands for the speakers, which fit nicely onto stands, and a third one for the amplifier would be good so all is high and easy to work with.

  6. Kendra Scrivano

    Nothing but issuesWe have issues with the sub breaking. Everything else is great on it, except for that.

  7. CY Liang

    Great buyOverall very good speaker! With all the features I need. Built-in Phantom power which is nice. Portable and lightweight. Bluetooth function was great and easy to pair.

  8. Hariette Wilde

    Easy and reliableI used these for an event in a gym with live acoustic music – this setup worked perfectly. It’s versatile and can work in a variety of setting and for multiple purposes, and was easy to set up and tear down.

  9. Dan Lundy

    ValueGreat sound quality for the price

  10. TechGeekDr.

    This new JBL system has the right mix of size, quality, sound fidelity and volume.After you doing a great deal of research, I am very happy with this Purchase. This new JBL system has the right mix of size, quality, sound fidelity and volume. We used it a backyard party where we invited over 100 people. I purchased this system instead of hiring a DJ, and we used Bluetooth to play music all night long.
