Two-Way Floor-Standing Speaker: The JBL Studio 580 floor-standing loudspeaker features
two 6.5" low-frequency woofers and a
high-frequency compression driver surrounded by a glass-filled Bi-Radial horn; a
combination that delivers crisp, focused, dimensionally accurate sound.
High Frequency Compression Driver/Horn System:
The JBL Studio 580 floor-standing loudspeaker features a
1" compression driver with a neodyminium magnet and one-piece Teonex diaphragm
on a glass-filled ABS Bi-Radial horn.
- 1" High-Frequency Compressions Driver:
The Studio 580 floor-standing loudspeaker's high-frequency compression
driver lowers distortion and provides a wider dynamic range than is possible
from conventional high-frequency and midrange drivers. The tweeter includes
a one-piece Teonex diaphragm/surround assembly fitted with a 1" voice coil
that can deliver enhanced vocal articulation.
- Glass-Filled ABS B-Radial High-Frequency Horn:
Horn-shaped loudspeaker designs optimize high-frequency output by directing
the sound to the listener with pinpoint accuracy, thereby eliminating
reverberations, reflections off walls, and other artifacts. The Studio 580
floor-standing loudspeaker features a glass-filled ABS Bi-Radial
high-frequency horn that delivers professional-level sound to your home.
Dual Low Frequency Woofers: The JBL Studio 580 floor-standing loudspeaker features
dual PolyPlas cone woofers with Symmetrical Field Geometry (SFG) magnet structures, cast-aluminum
frames, and rubber surrounds.
- Two 6.5" Ribbed PolyPlas Woofers:
The Studio 580 floor-standing loudspeaker delivers accurate low-frequency sounds
from dual 6.5" ribbed PolyPlas woofer cones. The ribs
improve strength while reducing distortion. The result is rich, articulate
- Symmetrical Field Geometry (SFG) Magnet Assembly:
Thanks to a heavy-duty Symmetrical Field Geometry (SFG) magnet assembly, the
Studio 580 floor-standing loudspeaker's low-frequency woofer delivers
highly focused bass. The result is pristine, articulate sound.
- Non-Resonant Cast-Aluminum Frame:
Each 6.5" woofer features a non-resonant cat-aluminum frame for clean,
powerful bass response.
- Rubber Surrounds: The ribbed PolyPlas woofer cones employs a
rubber surround for long cone excursion and extended bass response.
Low-Loss, Two-Way Crossover Network:
The Studio 580 floor-standing loudspeaker's low-loss, two-way crossover network
ensures a clean transition for sound coming from individual low-frequency and
high-frequency drivers, thereby reducing distortion while improving clarity.
Voice Matching: Engineered and
voice matched to other speakers in the JBL Studio 5 Series, the Studio 580
floor-standing speaker is powerful, accurate, and styled to make a dramatic
design statement in any listening environment.
Sturdy 3/4" MDF Enclosure:
The JBL Studio 580 floor-standing loudspeaker utilizes a rigid,
heavily-braced enclosure with non-parallel surfaces to reduce unwanted
Bass Reflex Design:
The Studio 580 floor-standing loudspeaker employs a bass reflex (ported) design
cabinet with a
bass port that increases output and extends bass response. There is a port
tube insert included to decrease the amount of bass output (50Hz-100Hz) from
Detachable Grille: The floor-standing loudspeaker can be used with or
without its detachable cloth grille. A plastic cosmetic cover is provided
when not using the cloth grille.
Colors: The 580 floor-standing speaker is available in a black or
cherry wood-grain vinyl finish (both contain black grilles).
Dual Gold-Plated Binding Posts:
The JBL Studio 580 floor-standing loudspeaker
will work with various power amplifiers and home receivers, with single
single-wire or bi-wire operation.
The Studio 580 floor-standing loudspeaker is fitted two sets of
gold-plated 5-way binding posts connected by gold-plated jumpers. Using the dual
5-way binding posts, you can bi-amp or bi-wire the speaker. The gold-plated
5-way binding posts will accept bare wire, pin connectors, spade connectors, or
banana plugs (single/dual).
Note: Make sure to remove the gold-plated jumpers when
bi-wiring/bi-amping the speaker.
Color-Coded: The dual 5-way binding posts terminals are
color-coded (red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.
Placement: For the best results, place the
speakers 6' to 10' apart. Angling the speakers toward the listening position
can improve the stereo imaging. The speakers will produce the most accurate
stereo soundstage when the angle between the listener and the speakers is
between 40° and 60°.
Generally, bass output will increase as the speaker is moved closer
to a wall or corner. For the best performance, JBL recommends that you place the
speakers at least 20" away from the side walls.
Rubber Feet: The JBL Studio 580 floor-standing loudspeaker comes with
4 rubber feet already installed. The rubber feet are used when placing the
speaker on a hard surface, such as your hardwood or tile floor.
Metal Floor Spikes: Four metal spikes are supplied for use
when you place the floor-standing speaker on a carpeted surface. Using the
spikes decouples the subwoofer from the floor and prevents unwanted acoustic
damping. The metal spikes add 0.1875" to the height of the speaker. The rubber
feet must be removed before installing the spiked feet.
Magnetically Shielded: The speaker is magnetically shielded,
allowing you to place it near any television without distorting the picture.
