JBL Professional LSR2300 Series Studio Monitors
At NAB 2009, JBL Professional introduced its LSR2300 Series Studio Monitors for the broadcast market. The LSR2300 Series includes the LSR2328P Bi-Amplified 203 mm (8-inch) Studio Monitor with 165 watts of amplification; the LSR2325P Bi-Amplified 133 mm (5-inch) Studio Monitor with 90 W of amplification; and the LSR2310SP Powered 254 mm (10-inch) Studio Subwoofer with an integrated 180W power amplifier.
In developing the LSR2300 Series, JBL applied the same stringent Linear Spatial Reference criteria used in the design of the acclaimed LSR6300 and the LSR4300 Series widely used in broadcast control rooms. JBL’s LSR criteria requires 70 measurements, yielding more than 1,200 times more data than a single on-axis measurement of the speaker’s performance. The data enables JBL to engineer a system that produces greater accuracy at the mix position. LSR2300’s large waveguide and elliptical tweeter aperture work in conjunction with a 1-inch silk-substrate high-frequency transducer to deliver superior imaging and smoother frequency response in the control room.
Today’s broadcast applications, which include production of HD programs, demand a monitor system capable of extended low frequency performance and high dynamic range. To address this, JBL engineered new long-excursion low-frequency transducers with high-flux motors and a custom tuned port that work in concert to produce a deep accurate low frequency response that was previously unavailable at this price point. The LSR2328P 8-inch model provides low frequency extension to 37 Hz; the LSR2325P 5-inch model to 43 Hz, and the LSR2310SP subwoofer performs below 28 Hz. Each studio monitor in the LSR2300 line promises exceptional sound pressure level (SPL) achieved through the use of high-sensitivity transducers and careful attention paid to the thermal properties of the system.
Designed to integrate into professional systems, all models include balanced and unbalanced inputs that allow connection to a wide range of playback sources, including professional mixing consoles, computer audio workstations and consumer playback equipment. The LSR2310SP Subwoofer includes a 2-channel bass management system with selectable crossover settings and balanced outputs for integration of the sub into any system. LSR2325P and LSR2328P enclosures include mounting points and are reinforced for safe wall mounting. Transducers in all models are self-shielded to allow use in close proximity to magnetically sensitive equipment.
