OVERVIEW

Pair of 5" near-field studio monitors, ideal for home and project studios.

The LSR305, part of JBL's 3 Series studio monitors, is a 5" powered studio monitor delivering professional performance at an affordable price points. 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" long-throw woofer and its 1" 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" (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" Powered Studio Monitor (Pair):

          I love the sound of these. In the price range you can't find a better monitor. I bought a pair of Audix PH5 on STOTD and they buzzed, even without a signal to them. I tried three pairs, all the while researching options. As always, MF customer service was great to deal with. These sell for less than the normal price for the Audix and MF did not have the margin to let me have these JBLs at that price, so they made me a great offer. I decided to pay a little more and buy these. Before I did, I went out to my local GC and listened to two sets of speakers. These and some Yamaha's I liked. Hands down these had better range and overall sound. First thing I did was plug them in with no source and they were absolutely whisper quiet.

          While hooking them up to my recording setup I did experience some ground hum, which switching to another source like an iPod they did not have, so I knew I have a ground loop going on. I decided to try moving the computer away from them and Bam! - perfectly quiet again. So I am rearranging my workspace because I love these things. May add the sub later, but for now these really do have adequate bass, even for a bass player! My other reference speakers are some vintage Yamaha NS10s but in another room. I feel very confident my mixing will be a pleasant experience between using these and the NS10s post mix support. Can't say enough good things about CS here!

            For about 8 years I have been mixing with several headphone sets, and a combination of bookshelf stereo speaker and larger hifi speakers.

            Some mixes sounded good in most systems, but others were not consistent. I hope that these speakers will help me minimize the inconsistencies.

            Overall a great value.

              I purchased these for Christmas so I haven't set them up yet, but I had been checking out three sets of monitors. When JBL offered buy one get the second for 1/2 price, between the reviews and the price I pounced. After Christmas I'll get back to you on performance, maybe a photo of my set-up.
