JBL

Studio Monitors

Engineered to play loud and long with unequalled dynamics, sonic clarity and tonal accuracy, JBL’s Studio Monitors range build on classic models from JBL’s heritage, which were found in all leading recording studios in the 1970s and 1980s.

Today, the Studio Monitors range incorporates new elements such as an improved HF compression driver and horn design and a new crossover network to give these speakers an advantage in the naturalness, clarity and detail of its sound relative to previous models. The result is effortless delivery of the full bandwidth and dynamics of the newest digital media – without suppression at any listening level.

When it comes to sound reproduction in concert halls, theatres, cinemas, festivals, nightclubs and anywhere else that sound really matters, JBL can confidently say "Been there, done that."

Before THX® and Dolby®, before stereo and even hi-fi, there was JBL. And today, in more than 70% of all professional installations around the world JBL Loudspeakers continue to be the one benchmark for quality, the singular reference for accuracy in the playback of recorded sound.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

JBL takes its decades of experience making speakers and other equipment for concert halls and other public venues, and uses it to create audio equipment for consumers around the world. You can enjoy a movie, ball game or concert as part of a huge crowd or in your home – but either way, you can catch all of the sounds with superb clarity through JBL components.

JBL is the one brand audio professionals rely on. The fact remains: wherever the need and whatever the budget, JBL is the leader, the innovator, the authority.

4429 STUDIO MONITOR

The JBL 4425 studio monitor, introduced in 1985, was the company’s first bookshelf compression driver system with a Bi-Radial horn and large-format woofer, designed to give true studio performance in transportable size without the need for subwoofer augmentation.

The new JBL 4429 incorporates a number of important improvements over the 4425 and its successors. A UHF transducer, an improved HF compression driver and horn design, a new crossover network and improved internal bracing combine to give the 4429 an advantage in the naturalness, clarity and detail of its sound relative to previous models.

Effortlessly delivering the full bandwidth and dynamics of the newest digital media – without suppression at any listening level – the 4429 reveals subtleties you may never before have experienced in recorded music. Every detail of the design and construction of this system has been directed toward a single goal: uncompromised sonic performance.

Featuring a massive, 300mm (12-inch) woofer, and large HF and UHF compression drivers with a one-piece SonoGlass horn, the 4429 delivers quick, tight bass, a natural, well-focused midrange and clear, distinct highs to create listening experiences with all the richness and detail of the original performances.

4319 STUDIO MONITOR

Throughout the decade of the 1970s and beyond, the JBL Model 4310 was found in more professional recording studios than any other monitor, setting the standard of power and realism for all that followed. The JBL 4319 studio monitor, with its unmistakable blue baffle and grille, continues the proud tradition.

Engineered to play loud and long with unequalled dynamics, sonic clarity and tonal accuracy, the 4319 features a massive, 300mm (12-inch) woofer driven by a Differential Drive (U.S. patent no. 5,748,760 and other patents pending) dual voice-coil assembly, a large inverted-dome midrange driver and a fast magnesium/aluminium dome tweeter.

Together, these advanced transducers deliver quick, tight bass, a natural, well-focused midrange and clear, distinct highs to create listening experiences with all the richness and detail of the original performance. Die-cast transducer frames dissipate heat to minimize distortion caused by power compression, and a heavily braced enclosure virtually eliminates unwanted internal resonances.

Music professionals and critical listeners have only the highest expectations for JBL studio monitors, and the JBL 4319 delivers brilliantly.

Technical Specifications:

Low-frequency transducer: 300mm (12") Differential Drive cone driver with dual 75mm (3") voice coils, cast-aluminium frame and an Aquaplas-coated cone (2213Nd-2)
Midrange transducer: 125mm (5") inverted-some driver with magnesium/aluminium alloy diaphragm (105H-2)
High-frequency transducer: 25mm (1") compression driver with magnesium/aluminium alloy diaphragm (054ALMg-1)
Recommended amplifier power: 200 watts RMS
Frequency response: 35Hz-40kHz (-6dB)
Nominal impedance: 6 ohms
Sensitivity: 92dB (2.83V/1m)

2213Nd-1 Low-Frequency Transducer

A 300mm (12-inch) woofer cone with a Differential Drive dual 75mm (3-inch) voice-coil assembly delivers deep, crisp bass at all listening levels. Dual neodymium magnets in push-pull configuration maintain precise control over the cone’s motion and dissipate heat more effectively than conventional magnetic assemblies for low-distortion, high-output performance. The die-cast aluminium frame further dissipates heat, increasing power handling; and the shallow, Aquaplas-coated cone is optimally damped to reduce distortion.

105H-2 Inverted-Dome Midrange Transducer
A 125mm (5-inch) magnesium/aluminium inverted dome with a 25mm
(1-inch) copper voice coil combine to produce flat response with low distortion and increased power handling for more dynamic performance at high listening levels. A die-cast frame minimizes back pressure for more linear motion, lower distortion and more natural-sounding reproduction of voices.

054ALMg-1 High-Frequency Driver
A 25mm (1-inch) magnesium/aluminium alloy dome produces realistic dynamics far beyond the range of human hearing, with ultrasmooth response that is ideal for SACD and other high-resolution audio formats.

4312E STUDIO MONITOR

Riotously fun sound; high intensity; über cool retro styling. – Hi Fi Choice – September 2012

The JBL 4312 E studio monitor is the direct descendent of the legendary Model 4320, the original JBL monitor that forever changed audio recording, introduced in 1968. As you would expect of a true JBL studio monitor, the 4312 E delivers crisp, powerful bass at all listening levels with a massive 300mm (12-inch) woofer driven by a Differential Drive (U.S. patent no. 5,748,760 and other patents pending) dual 75mm (3-inch) voice-coil assembly.
A 125mm (5-inch) pure-pulp cone and 25mm (1-inch) copper voice coil with Kapton bobbin realistically reproduce the full dynamics of vocal performances with low distortion, even at the highest listening levels. A 25mm (1-inch) tweeter with a magnesium/aluminium alloy dome extends HF response far beyond the audible range of the human ear. Built in mirror-image pairs to create the detailed, coherent stereo soundstage that studio monitors must, the JBL 4312 E exceeds the expectations of critical listeners and music professionals alike, providing a listening experience of such richness and subtlety that it cannot be compared to anything but a live performance.
