Hire this item


Our most popular line array element in the rental department, this is large format line array at its best.

We love our J series and love nothing more than happy listeners at every event.

Either used as smaller ground stacked system or as part of large flown arrays the J8 is the go to box for large events and when flown in multiples really satisfies.

Our J series is deployed either as single boxes on wheel boards or on four way carts pre cabled. We also stock J series frames and soca cable solutions to touring racks.  We are always happy and able to supply full turnkey systems.

Every J loudspeaker leaves us prepped to factory standards.
