producer/hardware NAMM 2018: HARMAN Unveils JBL 3 Series MkII


Next-generation studio monitors retain the best qualities of the original 3 Series, but now offer better performance in more production environments—along with a sleek new look.

With the revolutionary JBL Image Control Waveguide and refined transducers, JBL 3 Series MkII offers stunning detail, precise imaging, a wide sweet spot and impressive dynamic range that enhances the critical listening capabilities of any production space. Featuring patented technologies derived from the JBL 7 Series and M2 Master Reference Monitors, and sporting a sleek, modern design, JBL 3 Series MkII delivers outstanding performance and an enjoyable mix experience at an accessible price. JBL 3 Series MkII monitors are available in three configurations to meet the requirements of any audio environment, including the 305P MkII (5" woofer), 306P MkII (6.5" woofer) and 308P MkII (8" woofer).

The 3 Series MkII delivers deep, accurate and tightly controlled bass thanks to long-throw woofers and the patented JBL Slip Stream low-frequency port, while woven-composite 1" Neodymium tweeters offer soaring, immaculately detailed highs. For MkII, JBL refined the low frequency transducers for greater linearity and lower harmonic distortion and fine-tuned ferrofluid damping in the high frequency transducers for faster transient response. Dual, integrated Class D power amplifiers, custom designed for each transducer, offer generous dynamic range for any project.

The 3 Series MkII offers more control to tailor the sound to meet the sonic characteristics of individual studio environments or personal preferences. A new Boundary EQ setting attenuates the low-end boost that can occur when monitors are positioned directly on the desktop or near walls, plus a 3-position HF Trim switch allows users to adjust the high-frequency response.

JBL 305P and 308P MkII studio monitors are now available and 306P MkII monitors will be available in February from authorized HARMAN resellers in the US and other regions except Europe. European availability of the 3 Series
