JBL LSR305 Active Studio Monitor at a Glance:
Incredible stereo imaging thanks to an innovative waveguide
Ported design means more accuracy at low volume levels
Wide sweet spot equals a better studio experience
Incredible stereo imaging thanks to an innovative waveguide JBL borrowed innovative elements from their flagship M2 Master Reference Monitors to give the LSR305 incredible sound. The "Image Control Waveguide" design is one such feature, and helps the LSR308 have a deep sound stage as well as great detail. Said another way, not only can you clearly hear everything in your mix, you can also easily place it closer or further back in the mix too.
Ported design means more accuracy at low volume levels Checking your mix at low volume levels is a great way to check your overall balance, but many monitors will suffer in the bass regions when dealing with low monitoring levels. The JBL LSR305 uses JBL's patented "Slip Stream" low-frequency port for accurate bass response at low playback levels. The double-flared port shape also reduces the turbulence that some ported designs cause, meaning that bass response remains pure when you turn the LSR305 back up.
Wide sweet spot equals a better studio experience Hey, we're engineers, musicians, and producers too - we know you don't spend every second of your studio time in the perfect mixing position. JBL LSR305 monitors have a wide sweet spot, which means there's less variation in what you hear when you're not in the perfect position. Especially if you have clients in the room, you want consistent sound throughout your studio, and you'll like what you hear from the LSR305.
