JBL Professional has introduced its 3 Series studio monitors, the “first studio monitor line to incorporate JBL’s patent-pending Image Control Waveguide,” offers the company. Most notably, the 3 Series features technology developed for JBL’s flagship M2 Master Reference Monitor, with the Image Control Waveguide for greater depth and ambience in recordings.

The JBL 3 Series features two Class D amp-equipped models: the LSR305, 5-inch powered studio monitor; and the LSR308, 8-inch powered studio monitor. The LSR305 boasts 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.

The 3 Series’ long-throw woofer and damped woven composite tweeter are “designed from the ground up,” tells JBL. Other proprietary JBL technology includes the patented Slip Stream low-frequency port design, which works 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.

Prices: $149.99 and $249.99 each, street (LSR305 and LSR308)
