JBL 7 Series goes active

JBL 7 Series goes active

Published:

New self-powered versions of JBL’s 7 Series Master Reference Monitors have been introduced in the form of the 5-inch 705P and 8-inch 708P. The series was originally developed as a speaker that could be deployed in 5.1, 7.1 or immersive surround setups for broadcast and post-production facilities.

Aside from the direct production of power, the new passive 7 series cabinets are essentially the same as their active brethren. The 725G 5-inch LF transducer used in the 705P is stated to provide 14mm peak-to-peak excursion and low-frequency output down to 39Hz. The 728G eight-inch LF transducer inside the 708P utilises the manufacturer’s Differential Drive technology, which aims to reduce power compression, provide a greater sustained output and an extended, linear low-frequency performance down to 35Hz.

Additionally, both models feature JBL’s Image Control Waveguide that reportedly results in a ‘seamless transition’ between woofer and tweeter and therefore provides a wide sweet spot. Power is from a built-in dual amplification system. A 120W amp powers the 2409H high-frequency transducer, while a 250W amp is dedicated to the 725G and 728G LF transducers. Both models also feature room equalisation and a variety of connectivity options in line with their active counterparts.

As well as new 7 Series models, JBL has expanded its line-up of all-weather cabinets with the AWC62 2-way coaxial loudspeaker. Measuring 25.91cm x 25.91cm x 25.65cm, the AWC62 provides 110° coverage from the 6.5-inch low-frequency driver and 1-inch HF compression driver resulting in frequency response from 70Hz-18kHz.

Finally, a new studio loudspeaker tuning system has been released. Housed in a 2U rackmount enclosure, Intonato 24 can calibrate and control systems of up to 24 speakers with customised recallable routing of up to 24 sources selected from 24 analogue, 24 digital and 256 networked audio sources.

The device has the capability to manage monitoring systems of up to 24 speakers, including up to four subwoofers that can be assigned as ‘Bass Management’ subs with selectable crossover settings. It is also compatible with all monitoring formats including stereo, 5.1, 7.1 and immersive.
