Hi Dance Host,

Please give us a link to the owners guide for your JBL Eon product.

Will you be sending the signal

  1. From the S1 Pro to the JBL Eon
  2. From the JBL Eon to the S1 Pro


Thanks,

ST

Hi Dance Host,

Generally speaking, you want a balanced connection. That means

  • 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve to 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve cable
    OR
  • 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve to XLR


If there is a switch on the JBL EON to set MIC or LINE level, use LINE level.

If you need more information please give us a link to the owners guide for your JBL Eon product.

Thanks,

ST

Can you give a picture of the cable or jacks needed?

Here's a good picture.

Almost any music store sells them.

PS: Since there's only ONE channel of output from the S1, you'll need another cable (XLR to XLR) to go from one of the EONS to the other.

Manual here with complete discussion of cables and wiring diagrams in it:

Thanks. The guide says G2 channels 2 and 3 will take an unbalanced cable. Will unbalanced work out of the S1?

"Will unbalanced work out of the S1?"

Maybe.

I always default to balanced unless the output signal is too strong for the input to the other device -- for instance, +4dB from a mixer to a microphone level only input.
