JBL Professional 7 Series Powered Monitors Are Now Shipping

JBL said its Professional 7 Series Powered studio monitors are now shipping to authorized Harman distributors worldwide.

Designed from the ground up to meet the demanding requirements of complex music and post-production applications, JBL said the new 705P and 708P self-powered models deliver superb imaging and neutral response in any room.

The 7 Series Powered studio monitors feature newly developed JBL high- and low-frequency transducers driven by dual 250-watt power amplifiers to deliver two-to-three times the output of conventional studio monitors, as well as exceptional dynamic range for demanding music and film production applications.

Proprietary JBL waveguide technology provides neutral response and exceptional room-to-room consistency, while built-in room EQ solves common low-frequency issues that have plagued engineers for years. The system includes balanced analog and AES/EBU inputs for connecting to a broad range of sources. A Harman HiQnet Network port is provided for future upgrades.

When combined with the JBL Intonato 24 monitor management and tuning system, 7 Series monitors offer an exceptional monitoring platform for audio mix control of all sizes. Intonato 24 simplifies monitor system setup while offering precise automated calibration and complete control of monitor systems in stereo, surround and immersive-audio configurations.

Intonato 24 includes a calibration microphone and innovative Automated Speaker Calibration process that “tunes” each 7 Series speaker to compensate for speaker placement and room acoustics, delivering a neutral response to the mix position—even in less-than-ideal workspaces.
