      Okay...ive done alot research on monitors that would best fit "MY" studio. Price range $400-$800 Ive went to my local music store and A/B'd these against Mackie Mr8, KRK ROKIT 8, M-Audio BX8s. All I can say is WOW! Huge Difference. I needed a monitor that could get LOW and stay clean while being played loud. I make Techno/Rap/Pop music. www.JRUMBEATS.comAnyways...Ive had these about 4 months now...so heres "MY" opinion on the monitors. The "LOWS" on these speakers are great, and they can stay low without distorting the mids and highs. The "MIDS" are nice and relatively flat, they do not boost the mids to sound more appealing to the mixers ears. The "HIGHS" on these will blow your mind away. After you adjust the Hi-Freq on the back of the speaker you will deff be pleased. I mean these monitors GET LOUD and will not distort. These monitors also have a soft rubber pad on the bottom of them to eliminate any unwanted vibrations.My Cons - Power Switch is on the back of the monitor. Thats it, these are a solid buy and you will not be disappointed. I have also tested Mackie Hr824 Mk2 and KRK VXT8 against these JBL LSR 8"s...Mackie is trash but the KRK VXT8 were actually really great...but a little out of my price range...hoped i helped!!!

      Overall the monitors have a nice set of features, are a little too hyped for my taste, have a design flaw that I can't get over, and could also serve someone well in spite of that.
      These monitors actually sound fairly good. I've had Yamaha NS10's, Mackie HR824's, Mackie HR624MKII's, and also mixed on JBL LSR 6328 P's. I've a semi professional recording, mixing," and mastering engineer and producer and have made about 50 or so albums and demos and also worked at a professional 24 track 2"" recording studio as well.

      In comparison to these other monitors I would say that the JBL's are very good for their frequency range", particularly because, like the Mackie HR824's, they go very low. I slightly prefer the Mackie's, which cost more. These JBL's are a little too scooped for my tastes and represent music in a way that reminds of what a hi-fi sound system does to sound -- ads a little highs and lows and is missing in the mids. The monitors are clear and if you get use to them and how they translate (as you need to do with all monitors) I have no doubt that they will serve you well, and the price is certainly right. For my needs I couldn't justify keeping these because of their scooped sound and what I saw as a design weakness. Thats said, the monitors do have a lot of features, including some nice foam padding on their base, which is nice.
      I ordered a pair of these recently because my Event Precision 8's blew a tweeter and are just known for having electrical problems in general I thought I'd just get a new set of monitors. The first pair arrived and one was fine, while the other monitor was placed into a larger shipping box with virtually no padding (one large piece of crumpled paper) and so was free to move around. When I opened the box the monitor was in it was clear that it had been dropped as the styrofoam padding was crushed and broken on one corner and the faceplate of the monitor where the speaker and tweeter are mounted was loose and able to move around. Another set was sent to me, but this time they sent me a monitor that wasn't in it's manufacturer's box at all and just free floating inside of the same large box. The manual was taped to the top of the monitor and this time the entire faceplate where the speaker and tweeter are mounted was broken off. On the third set I could still tap the faceplate and have it move around. It looks like it's almost pinching the woofer at points and that the opening for the woofer isn't shaped quite right to fit the speaker.

      So my quality rating is difficult to quantify because, other then the poorly designed faceplate, everything else about the quality of the monitor is very good.
      The monitors would be a great value if they solveed the poorly designed faceplate problem.

        These sound convincing, accurate and natural with my guitars. As they use 8" drivers they are large for desktop use. I'm happy with them and the two year warranty. I think they are a good value.

          Comments about JBL LSR 2328P 8" Bi-Amplified Powered Studio Monitor:

          The other reviews I've read say these are very good when complimented with the LSR2310SP sub woofer, and I see why now. I'm now watching for a great deal on that, too. I am still quite satisfied with the sound range they are good for, 150Hz - 20kHz. These reproduce the mids and highs very well, but need to be rolled off below 150Hz as there are some weird, unnatural artifacts in the deep base otherwise. When I ran the audio through a DSP crossover set to 150Hz, then split it to these and an amplifier/subwoofer, the difference was astounding. Goodbye artifacts. Although they do have a VERY limited LF Trim switch, I would have given 5 stars if they had good high pass (low cut) filters built in. Still, good for the price I paid.

          These things are nice! We have only had them for couple of weeks and it took a few days of breaking in, but now we like them a lot. They have excellent imaging and a wide sweet spot with great detail. Mixes translate well to our other monitors and playbacks. The amplification is flat and accurate with plenty of clean power and headroom. I am a speaker junkie and own 25+ pairs of professional monitors and consider these to be the most "bang for the buck" .

              Comments about JBL LSR 2328P 8" Bi-Amplified Powered Studio Monitor:

              I was shopping around for an 8" monitor, because I decided to ditch my subwoofer. I was almost ready to order a pair of Focal CMS65's, but then I saw these, and began to research. Finding mostly good reviews on them, I pulled the trigger on them, and couldn't be happier. My room is currently treated(partially, and these monitors really open up, and let you hear incredible detail. Within minutes of hooking them up and playing music, I had already heard things in some songs that were just not there before. Well, they were there, but I COULDN"T HEAR THEM! Now, I can hear very clearly, and guess these monitors will give me plenty of good mixes. Great buy!
