JBL architectural speakers are now available in the Son-Vidéo.com catalog! After the Stage and B Series, the Studio line brings together the brand’s high-end models. With a PolyPlas woofer, a quick installation system and adjustable output levels, the American manufacturer has used its expertise to create balanced, high-performance in-wall and in-ceiling speakers.
Proprietary JBL technologies
Within the Studio series, the JBL Studio 2 and JBL Studio 6 ranges have a similar design but differ in a few details. All models in the JBL Studio range are 2-way architectural speakers. Depending on the reference, they are either intended for a wall or ceiling installation to offer a reinforced immersive experience, for both home theater and hi-fi.
The woofer of the JBL Studio in-wall speakers is made from a PolyPlas cone, a material developed by the American firm. It consists of cellulose fibers and a layer of polymer. Consequently, PolyPlas eliminates internal resonance and evens out the movement of the cone. The result: more precise and controlled bass! In addition, the tweeter benefits from an HDI waveguide to evenly distribute high frequencies throughout the listening space.
Another shared feature is the XL-2 quick installation system. Again, this is a proprietary technology from JBL. The latter guarantees that the architectural speakers are securely fitted into the wall or ceiling thanks to mounting brackets that can be operated with a screwdriver. Its simplicity guarantees a quick installation, so you can enjoy the speakers very quickly.
Finally, to make the immersive experience even more complete, JBL has made its in-wall and in-ceiling speakers virtually invisible. For this purpose, they are all delivered with a magnetic grille that is ready to be painted. As a result, no screws are visible. The sound seems to come directly out of the walls and ceiling!
A few differences
While the overall design of the JBL Studio 2 and JBL Studio 6 series speakers is similar, a few details distinguish them, notably the tweeter. The driver dedicated to high frequencies is adjustable on the JBL Studio 2 models. Simply apply a little pressure to the outer ring around the tweeter to optimize the high frequencies in your listening space.
In addition, the output level of the high-frequency driver is adjustable (-3, 0 and +3 dB) on the JBL Studio 2 architectural speakers. The American manufacturer has gone further in customizing the JBL Studio 6 series. JBL Studio 6 architectural units have adjustable output levels for the tweeter and woofer. This means they can be adapted to the characteristics of your listening space, whether it’s a living room with large windows or a room with curtains and thick carpeting.
There are a total of 12 architectural speaker models in the JBL Studio series: 7 for the Studio 2 range and 5 for the Studio 6 range. Discover them now on Son-Vidéo.com to create your own home theater system and rediscover your favorite movies with an optimized immersive experience.
