5 in. near-field studio monitor in limited edition red.

The LSR305, part of JBL's 3 Series studio monitors, is a 5 in. powered studio monitor delivering professional performance at an affordable price points. This is a special limited edition run of the LSR305 in an exciting red finish. 3 Series Powered Studio Monitors are first to incorporate JBL's exciting new technology, the Image Control Waveguide. In conjunction with 3 Series high-performance transducers and system components, the Image Control Waveguide lets you hear detail and depth in recordings as you've never heard before.

The LSR305's 5 in. long-throw woofer and its 1 in. damped woven composite Neodymium tweeter are designed from the ground up to reproduce the powerful transients and micro dynamics of your mix. These drivers deliver impressive deep bass and smooth high frequency response beyond the range of human hearing.

JBL's Patented Slip Stream low frequency port design works in concert with the woofer to produce deep bass response at all playback levels. The double-flared shape of the port is precisely engineered for greater low-frequency extension and reduced turbulence.

Big Power, Big Sound
3 Series efficient Class D Amplifiers provide abundant power to deliver the output and dynamic headroom needed for the most demanding production styles

Professional Balanced Inputs
Balanced XLR and 1/4 in. (6 mm) TRS inputs give you the options you need to connect your 3 Series to any signal source while maintaining professional signal quality.

Selectable Input Sensitivity
The -10 dB/+4 dB sensitivity switch ensures compatibility with a broad range of signal sources, allowing you to connect the 3 Series to high output professional gear without any danger of input overload.

LF Trim and HF Trim "TRIM" switches for both the Low and High Frequencies give you excellent control over the 3 Series sound in "your" room. Use these to fine-tune the amount of bass and treble you hear to compensate for room acoustics, program material and your personal taste.

JBL Professional Reliability
Prior to becoming a production-ready design, each 3 Series model is subjected to JBL's tough 100-hour power test, in which the speaker is required to play continually at full output for 100 hours without failure. This demanding test ensures your 3 Series speakers will deliver years of reliable performance.

JBL LSR Design - Your Music Needs a Point of Reference
While most manufacturers take only a single on axis measurement of the speaker's performance, this doesn't tell how it will sound in your room. JBL's LSR Linear Spatial Reference design criteria requires seventy-two measurements yielding more than 1,200 times more data, enabling JBL to engineer a speaker that "sounds right" in any working space. With LSR design, 3 Series Studio Monitors deliver superior accuracy regardless of the size and shape of your room, so your mixes "hit their mark" when heard on any playback system.

Comments about JBL LSR305 5 in. Limited Edition Powered Studio Monitor - Matte Red:

I originally owned the black edition when they first came out. I sold them and missed them so much I got the limited edition red version with the help of my parents for Christmas. For what these are you really can't beat them at the price point. I use these in my bed room studio to produce all kinds of music. The detail is extremely accurate for the cost, they compete with speakers way above this price point. I don't think I'll ever buy a more expensive pair of monitors because it just wouldn't be worth it.

Comments about JBL LSR305 5 in. Limited Edition Powered Studio Monitor - Matte Red:

I have been running a pair of black LSR305's as my main living room TV / stereo for years now and love them. Popped for a pair of the matte red ones and love the color. Red enough to add style but not distracting. Moved the black ones to the dining room. I also have Tannoy 402s for the office and bedroom which are very nice as well. Tried a pair of Stirling MX5s but just didn't care for them. I use Google Chromecast Audio devices to broadcast sound all over the house. Works awesome.
