JBL 3 Series Monitors

JBL 3 Series LogoBringing professional studio reference monitoring to customers at a remarkably affordable price, JBL Professional introduces its new 3 Series studio monitor line. The first studio monitor line to incorporate JBL’s patent-pending Image Control Waveguide, 3 Series is designed to deliver exceptional imaging and detail in any listening environment. With a distinctive appearance, rugged build, professional performance, and most affordable price points, the new 3 Series will be welcomed by music, post and broadcast production customers working in stereo and surround sound formats. 

3 Series

The JBL 3 Series features two models: the LSR305, 5-inch powered studio monitor; and the LSR308, 8-inch powered studio monitor. Both models offer impressive frequency response and output, with the LSR305 boasting a response of 43Hz to 24 kHz and a peak SPL of 108 dB, while the LSR308 features a response of 37Hz to 24 kHz and a peak SPL of 112 dB.

Leveraging new technology developed for JBL’s flagship M2 Master Reference Monitor, the 3 Series features JBL’s patent-pending Image Control Waveguide enabling the listener to hear greater depth and ambience in recordings. The complex contour of the meticulously engineered waveguide employs small ridges that optimize the phase relationship of the loudspeakers, and also the blend of direct and reflected sound arriving at the listening position. The product of intensive R&D, the waveguide design allows subtle detail to be heard, even in a dense mix while delivering a wide stereo panorama with a rock-solid phantom-center image. In addition, the waveguide enables 3 Series models to deliver neutral sound across an unusually large working space, regardless of room acoustics, eliminating the need for the customer to be positioned directly in front of the monitors when making critical adjustments to the mix.

Both models are currently set up in Dale's demo rooms in NYC and Jamaica for listening.

“Our goal with the 3 Series is to bring a new level of performance and accuracy to the market at most affordable price points,” said Peter Chaikin, Senior Manager, JBL Professional Recording and Broadcast Marketing. “The Image Control Waveguide gives 3 Series a dramatic advantage. It is a remarkable piece of engineering allowing us to deliver a loudspeaker that is more revealing and engaging to listen to. Customers will find, with this waveguide, the 3 Series loudspeakers provide a truly enjoyable listening experience.”
