This Portable PA System Enables You to Play It Safe


The world has changed dramatically in recent months, and social distancing is the new norm for the foreseeable future. With that in mind, gigmit is partnering with JBL Professional to introduce this battery-powered portable PA system to the gigmit community. So you can PLAY IT SAFE in all environments.

JBL EON ONE Compact Portable PA System

The JBL EON ONE Compact is an all-in-one, rechargeable, personal PA speaker that offers best-in-class audio performance. It may be small enough to carry in one hand, but its sound is big enough to fill the room. You’ll be amazed at the 112 decibels of rich, crystal-clear sound produced across the entire range of this ultra-compact, portable pa system, with deep, uncompressed bass even at high output levels.

Long-Lasting Battery Life

Play more songs, confident in the JBL EON ONE Compact’s 12-hour battery life. Swap out batteries in seconds – no tools necessary – and quick-charge batteries in just 2.5 hours. You can even charge while the system is in use.

Class-Leading Connectivity

The EON ONE Compact offers four simultaneous inputs, with two XLR/TRS combo jacks, one 1/4-inch hi-Z guitar input and one stereo 3.5mm aux input with Bluetooth. This allows you to connect microphones, line-level instruments and audio playback sources. Additionally, phantom power supports a condenser microphone, and a pro-grade preamp delivers full, rich sound from any microphone. Plus, a 3.5mm passthrough lets you expand your system with additional JBL EON ONE Compact units. Use the built-in headphone jack to rehearse privately or dial in presets before performances. Two high-power USB 3.0 ports allow high-speed charging of tablets, phones and select DJ devices.

Total Control At Your Fingertips

For enhanced freedom and control, the free JBL Compact Connect App allows you to control and stream Bluetooth audio to up to four EON ONE Compact speakers directly from your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet. With Compact Connect, you’ll have free reign over EON ONE Compact’s settings and capabilities, including its four-channel digital mixer, more robust EQ control, Lexicon effects, ducking, saving and recalling presets and much more.
