JBL Commercial Series Products Earn ENERGY STAR® Label

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – HARMAN’s JBL Commercial Series today announced that its amplifiers, and mixer-amplifiers have earned the ENERGY STAR® label. The ENERGY STAR program, sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), provides consumers and businesses with guidance for making purchases that save them money and help protect the climate by increasing energy efficiency. To earn the label, the JBL Commercial Series components had to be third-party certified in EPA-recognized laboratories and demonstrate that the features and performance of the products meet consumer demand and that they are able to increase energy efficiency. To retain the ENERGY STAR label, the products will be subject to “off-the-shelf” verification testing each year, to ensure that changes or variations do not undermine the components’ adherence to ENERGY STAR requirements. 

The JBL Commercial series, known for both superior performance and affordability, is comprised of components that are the result of years of precision sound reproduction and technical innovation by JBL, Crown and other HARMAN brands. The Commercial Series Mixer-Amplifiers (CSMA) drive 8 ohm and 4 ohm loads (70V and 100V). They include Euro- block mic/line inputs, unbalanced RCA inputs and an RJ45 port for remote volume control. The JBL Commercial products are backed by the combined technological prowess of multiple HARMAN brands. They can be easily configured to accommodate a range of applications, such as background music, security and paging, making them an ideal component for a variety of venues, ranging from schools and hospitals to restaurants and fitness facilities. JBL Commercial Series Amplifiers (CSA) continue to exceed expectations as they set new standards in commercial amp technology with easy configuration, increased reliability and unrivaled performance. 

“The ENERGY STAR label reflects our commitment to delivering top-notch audio components that have been developed from the very beginning with environmental stewardship in mind,” stated Craig Lambrecht, business segment manager, Amplifier Business Unit, HARMAN Professional. “These components are manufactured with recycled materials whenever possible, they’re designed to use less power and generate less heat and their relatively low weight results in less freight and lower emissions. Energy efficiency is important to our customers and, as the JBL Commercial line demonstrates, it’s important to us as well.” 

Energy efficiency is built into the components with technology and environmentally conscious manufacturing guidelines. As a result the products quickly pay for themselves in energy savings. JBL Commercial’s amplifiers and mixer-amplifiers utilize HARMAN’s DriveCore™ technology, which compresses hundreds of parts into a chip that’s smaller than a dime, increasing efficiency and reliability by using fewer parts and significantly reducing power consumption. And GreenEdge™ by HARMAN is an initiative under which the components are built to conform to lead-free RoHS standards, use recycled copper, aluminum and steel from factory processes and include a low-energy powder coat that uses 33 percent less energy.

“Our JBL Commercial mixer/amps are designed for places where a simple, high-quality audio solution is needed and an elaborate A/V installation isn’t required,” said Craig Lambrecht, Business Segment Manager, Amplifier Business Unit, Crown Audio.

All CSMA models incorporate Crown’s proprietary DriveCore amplifier IC chip. The DriveCore chip combines the amplifier driver stage into the power output stage along with additional audio-signal functions, yet is about the size of a postage stamp. DriveCore enables significantly reduced size and weight – all mixer/amps are just 1U rack space high and most models are only a half-rack wide. All models can drive 8 ohm and 4 ohm loads and can be used with 70V and 100V distributed audio systems without the need for a separate transformer. All feature a universal power supply which enables the ability to accept AC voltages from 100 to 240 VAC, 50/60Hz.

The CSMA mixer/amps offer unmatched ease of use, with a clean, front panel featuring only volume controls for each channel, master volume adjustment, adjustable bass and treble controls and a power switch. All the volume controls are surrounded by an illuminated ring, making them easy to see and operate in darkened environments. In addition to balanced mic/line inputs, unbalanced RCA inputs and speaker connections, all units include RJ45 connectors for use with JBL CSR-V in-wall volume controls.

JBL Commercial mixer/amps are manufactured under HARMAN’s GreenEdge™ environmental initiative, conforming to lead-free RoHS standards and utilizing recycled copper, aluminum and steel, an energy-saving powder coat finishing process and other environmentally-conscious manufacturing processes. The DriveCore design reduces power consumption and powers some of the most efficient amplifiers in the install market. All models carry a 3-year no-fault transferable warranty.
