Chris Fogel, (pictured) one of Hollywood’s A-list sound recording/mixing professionals, recently purchased JBL’s new LSR6300 studio monitors for surround mixing and recording of major feature film projects. With a list of accomplishments as long as a reel of film, Fogel, when taking on the latest Jennifer Garner feature, 13 Going on 30, needed to have the highest level of accuracy and versatility.
When preparing for the Garner film, Fogel decided to upgrade his speakers. JBL Professional engineers arranged a demo at Fogel’s studio featuring 5 of the LSR6328P models along with the LSR6312SP powered subwoofer and included JBL’s patented Room Mode Correction (RMC™) technology.
Fogel decided on the LSRs: “I knew I needed more heft than what my other speakers were providing. Once the people from JBL Professional dialed-in the Room Mode Correction, delivering that good bottom end, I knew I had all I needed to get to work on the score for this film.”
The JBL Professional LSR6328P applies to stereo and multichannel music and post audio applications where accuracy and high SPL are required. With ruler-flat +1 dB/-1.5 dB response from 50 Hz to 20 kHz, low frequency extension to 36 Hz, boundary compensation and JBL’s new RMC system, the LSR6328P provides low frequency performance in any room. The system is bi-amped with a 250 watt LF amplifier and a 120W HF amplifier.
The LSR6312SP powered subwoofer is based on a 12″ woofer with JBL’s patented Differential Drive® and 250 watts of power. An integral bass-management system offers all the features needed for today’s multiformat surround production including: LCR and Direct LFE inputs, summed output for chaining multiple subwoofers, -4 dB alignment settin and the RMC system.
“The Room Mode Correction is the key to the versatility of the LSRs,” said Peter Chaikin, director, recording and broadcast, JBL Professional. “That adaptability and accuracy has allowed the LSRs to shine in a setting like Chris Fogel’s studio. We are very excited that a sound professional of Chris’s caliber has chosen the LSR6300s.”
Based out of Los Angeles, Fogel is a recording engineer who records and mixes film scores as well as working with multi-Platinum recording artists. Past projects include Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill, Aerosmith , Sheryl Crow, U2 and Quincy Jones, among others. Film soundtracks include Charlie’s Angels, Miss Congeniality and Cruel Intentions.
