JBL, a Harman company, has introduced its 3 Series MkII powered studio monitors with JBL Image Control Waveguide and refined transducers.
JBL said the 3 Series MkII offers precise detail and imaging, a wide sweet spot and high dynamic range that enhances critical listening capabilities. The monitor’s technologies were derived from the JBL 7 Series and M2 Master Reference Monitors.
The JBL 3 Series MkII monitors are available in three configurations to meet the requirements of any audio environment, including the 305P MkII (5-inch woofer), 306P MkII (6.5-inch woofer) and 308P MkII (8-inch woofer).
JBL 3 Series MkII monitors are equipped with the JBL Image Control Waveguide to deliver precise detail, ambience and depth. This technology ensures an acoustically seamless transition between the low- and high-frequency transducers and provides an ultra-wide soundstage and precise imaging.
With a broad sweet spot and neutral frequency response, MkII reveals subtle details, even when listening off-axis. The speakers deliver deep, accurate and tightly controlled bass due to long-throw woofers and JBL’s Slip Stream low-frequency port.
Woven-composite 1-inch Neodymium tweeters offer detailed highs. JBL refined the low frequency transducers for greater linearity and lower harmonic distortion and fine-tuned ferrofluid damping in the high frequency transducers for faster transient response. Dual, integrated Class D power amplifiers, custom designed for each transducer, offer generous dynamic range for any project.
The 3 Series MkII offers more control to tailor the sound to meet the sonic characteristics of individual studio environments or personal preferences. A Boundary EQ setting attenuates the low-end boost that can occur when monitors are positioned directly on the desktop or near walls, plus a three-position HF Trim switch allows users to adjust the high-frequency response.
