JBL Adds to LSR Monitor Family

New two-way powered monitors for well-known studio group

Speaker maker JBL has announced two additions to its LSR powered studio monitor family — LSR305 and LSR308. They are dubbed the 3 Series.

As the names hint, the 305 (shown) carries a five-inch woofer while the 308 has an eight-inch woofer. The one-inch tweeter on both models is made of woven composite with a neodymium magnet.

Both offer JBL’s Control Waveguide technology for what the company says is an enhanced sweet spot. The waveguide is adopted from the higher-end M2 monitor. They also have the Slip Stream LF double-flared passive port.

Amps are Class D digital. Dual 41 W amps power the 305 with dual 56 W amps for the 308. XLR and 1/4-inch are the inputs.

The LSR305 has a reported 43 Hz–24 kHz frequency response range and the LSR308 has a 37 Hz–24 kHz frequency response range. Both have HF and LF trim pots.

Senior Manager, JBL Professional Recording and Broadcast Marketing, Peter Chaikin said, “Our goal with the 3 Series is to bring a new level of performance and accuracy to the market at most affordable price points.

Prices: LSR305 — $199.99; LSR308 — $325.
