8" Two-Way Powered Studio Monitor

Wave Guide. Class-D 56 Watt RMS Amplifier for LF, and 56 Watt RMS Amplifier
for HF. Balanced XLR and ¼” TRS Inputs with Detented Level Control, HF and

Image Control Waveguide
- The Image Control Waveguide was developed for JBL's new flagship M2
Master Reference Monitor and with the introduction of the JBL 3 Series,
is now included for the first time in an affordable, compact reference
- The patent-pending design of the Image Control Waveguide precisely
controls the sound emanating from the speaker in the vertical and
horizontal planes ensuring the presentation at the listening position
is neutral and accurate.
JBL Transducers are legendary for their performance.
The 3 Series long-throw woofer and its damped woven composite Neodymium
tweeter are designed from the ground up to reproduce the powerful
transients and micro dynamics of your mix. These drivers deliver
impressive deep bass and smooth high frequency response beyond the
range of human hearing.
JBL's Patented Slip StreamT low frequency port design
works in concert with the woofer to produce deep bass response at all
playback levels. The double-flared shape of the port is precisely
engineered for greater low-frequency extension and reduced turbulence.
Big Power, Big Sound
- 3 Series efficient Class D Amplifiers provide abundant power to
deliver the output and dynamic headroom needed for the most demanding
Professional Balanced Inputs
- Balanced XLR and 6 mm TRS inputs give you the options you need to
connect your 3 Series to any signal source while maintaining
professional signal quality.
Selectable Input Sensitivity
- The -10 dB/+4 dB sensitivity switch ensures compatibility with a
broad range of signal sources, allowing you to connect the 3 Series to
high output professional gear without any danger of input overload.
LF Trim and HF Trim "TRIM" switches
for both the Low and High Frequencies give you excellent control over
the 3 Series sound in "your" room. Use these to fine-tune the amount of
bass and treble you hear to compensate for room acoustics, program
material and your personal taste.
JBL Professional Reliability
- Prior to becoming a production-ready design, each 3 Series model is
subjected to JBL's tough 100 hour power test, in which the speaker is
required to play continually at full output for 100 hours without
failure. This demanding test ensures your 3 Series speakers will
deliver years of reliable performance.
JBL LSR Design - Your Music Needs a Point of Reference
- While most manufacturers take only a single on axis measurement of
the speaker's performance, this doesn't tell how it will sound in your
room. JBL's LSR Linear Spatial Reference design criteria requires
seventy-two measurements yielding more than 1,200 times more data,
enabling JBL to engineer a speaker that "sounds right" in any working
space. With LSR design, 3 Series Studio Monitors deliver superior
accuracy regardless of the size and shape of your room, so your mixes
"hit their mark" when heard on any playback system.
- The impressive performance of the 3 Series Reference Monitors is the
result of JBL's development of its flagship M2 Master Reference
Monitor. Learn more about the M2 at www.jblpro.com/M2
