JBL 308P MkII
2-way powered studio monitor with 8" woofer and 1" tweeter
Our take on the JBL 308P MkII by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
The JBL 308P MkII studio monitor features a bi-amped design for excellent power and performance.
History meets innovation
JBL approached the design of the 308P MkII with new ears, but they built the monitors on solid, proven technology. Each speaker matches an 8" long-throw woofer with a 1" damped soft dome tweeter to reproduce powerful transients and subtle dynamics in your mix.
JBL's Image Control Wave Guide offers detailed imaging and an expanded sweet spot that will please your ears. The patented Slip Stream™ bass port uses a double-flared shape for greater low-frequency extension and less internal turbulence.
Built to deliver accurate sound...
Separate 56-watt Class D amplifiers drive the woofer and tweeter, so highs, mids and lows are delivered with dynamic accuracy for even the most demanding production styles. Durable balanced XLR and 1/4" TRS connectors ensure that pure, high-quality signal flows from the source to your ears.
...and built to last
Quality materials and sturdy craftsmanship alone aren't enough for the engineers at JBL. Before each speaker leaves the factory it must pass a torture test: playing at full output for 100 hours without failure. And each is backed by a five-year warranty. Rest assured: your JBL monitors will deliver years of reliable, responsive performance.
You're in charge of what you hear
In your studio, you're the boss. The 308P allows you to fine-tune the sound to fit your room's acoustics and your personal preferences. Boost or cut frequency response as needed with a three-position high-frequency trim switch. A two-position input sensitivity switch ensures compatibility with a broad range of signal sources, allowing you to connect high-output professional gear without any danger of input overload.
It's your mix. JBL has gone to great lengths to make sure you hear what you need to hear when you're sitting in the sweet spot.
