8" near-field studio monitor, ideal for home and project studios.

The LSR308, part of JBL’s 3 Series studio monitors, is a 8” 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 LSR308’s 8” 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.

      I had a pair of Fostex 8" two-way monitors and they didn't have enough high-end for me. The JBL LSR308'S are just what I NEEDED.!! They have wonderful detail and High-end. Great bottom-end but not boomy.!! For the money you will not be disappointed.!! You can also adjust the woofer and horn levels to fit your rooms acoustics. Nice feature.!! I am very happy with the quality of these monitors. Please check them out!!

        Comments about JBL LSR308 8" Powered Studio Monitor:

        Bought these for my home studio and were blown away by the clarity of the sound. I've spent a fair amount of time recording in commercial and home studios, and the quality of these monitors are right up there with the monitors I've used in commercial setups.

        The range is great, lows/mids/highs all sound very distinct and I've yet to notice any 'muddled' sounds when mixing.

        Just for kicks I hooked them up to my record player, put on the Dark Side of the Moon, and it honestly sounded like a live performance. Crazy beans indeed.

        They were a bit larger than I had originally anticipated, so keep that in mind if you have limited space in your setup.

        Overall I'm very happy with this purchase.

          Comments about JBL LSR308 8" Powered Studio Monitor:

          The details that these monitors bring out in not only your recordings but even pre-recorded music; absolutely amazing! Even without a sub the lows are incredibly deep and balanced allowing you to hear the rumbling growls of a bass guitar, the powerful nuances of the human voice and all of the crystalline sparkles of crashing cymbals...absolutely the best monitors you can get for this price! I compared these with the Yamaha 8" monitors at GC and these just seemed more naturaly balanced with less coloration. At home, they continue to amaze me!!!

            Comments about JBL LSR308 8" Powered Studio Monitor:

            I've been using these for about 4 months, and i have to say i'm pleased by the quality of the results. At college, we have a studio equipped with high category system, including two Genelec 1032B and two 1238A three-way Smart Active Monitors of the same brand and the mixes translates really well from my LSR308 to that system, off course the triamplified system ends up showing me things i didn't listen back in my room, but in general, the mix is well transfered.

            One more thing to highlight is the amazing center image, and therefore the great general stereo image. You will get a total sense of what's in where and how is the balance on your mix thanks to that.

            For the cost, they are a great choice for first monitors.
