LAS VEGAS, Nevada – At CinemaCon 2013, HARMAN’s JBL Professional today announced the introduction of its 3252N 2-way screen channel cinema loudspeaker system, a cost-effective solution for movie soundtrack reproduction in small- to mid-sized auditoriums. The loudspeaker is available as a fully passive system.
“The 3252N is a space-saving, easy-to-install loudspeaker that delivers smooth, accurate reproduction of movie soundtracks with wide dynamic range and maximum output over a wide coverage area,” noted Chuck Goodsell, Senior Manager, Cinema, JBL Professional. “The 3252N is a great solution for cinemas and auditoriums where space and budgets may be limited but where top-quality multichannel theater sound is required.”
The 3252N measures 43-1/3 inches (1100 mm) high by 25-1/5 inches (640 mm) wide by just 17-3/4 inches (450 mm) deep and its speaker cable connections are made from the side, a configuration that facilitates easy placement behind a screen. The loudspeaker ships as a complete unit—no further assembly is required.
The 3252N employs a 2414H-C Teonex®-diaphragm high-frequency compression driver that operates into a molded Optimized Aperture Waveguide. Two 15-inch woofers with 2.5-inch aluminum ribbon wire voice coils provide powerful, detailed low-frequency response. The 3252N has a high 103 dB sensitivity and can be driven to up to 124 dB maximum rated SPL. A newly designed passive crossover network provides a seamless transition between the drivers for clear, articulate dialog and high-fidelity music reproduction. The speaker’s built-in protection circuit ensures that all components operate within their optimal power handling range.
