JBL launches new studio monitors at entry-level prices
JBL Professional has introduced the LSR2300 series Studio Monitor System, an audio system that is designed to deliver professional performance at price points within the reach of any facility.
The LSR2300 series addresses the demand for cost-effective, high-performance monitoring systems driven by the proliferation of affordable, computer-based production systems. The series includes the LSR2328P bi-amplified 8in studio monitor with 160W of amplification; the LSR2325P bi-amplified 5in studio monitor with 85W of amplification; and the LSR2310SP powered 10in studio subwoofer with an integrated 180W power amplifier.
While most manufacturers take only a single on-axis measurement of the speaker’s performance, JBL’s Linear Spatial Reference criteria requires 70 measurements, yielding more than 1200 times more data. The data enables the system to produce greater accuracy at the mix position.
A trademark of the LSR2300 design is the large waveguide and the elliptical tweeter aperture that work in conjunction with a 1in silk-substrate high-frequency transducer to deliver superior imaging and smoother frequency response.
The demand for high-quality audio for HDTV requires a monitor system capable of extended low-frequency performance and high dynamic range. To address this, the company engineered new long-excursion low-frequency transducers with high-flux motors and a custom tuned port that works in concert to produce deep accurate low-frequency response.
