JBL 306P MKII Reviews

All You Need

This is a great kit for hooking up your laptop to pristine studio monitors. It's all there and at a fair price. But most importantly, these JBL's sound terrific. They produce accurately and without strain. You can certainly spend more on 8" monitors and to some ears and on paper others may seem better, but to me, these JBL's look good enough on paper and sound fabulous in my studio. I would heartily recommend them.

Better than expected

I have a pair of 308 MkII (to jam on a PC) and 305 MkII (for a keyboard). I am blown away from the sound of both. I am an audiophile with expensive speakers in every room I can fit them including some that cost over 10K each and these little JBL studio monitors give just as much detail as the big boys.

Five Stars for sure

This is my first studio monitor setup and it is wonderful! The isolation pads are more essential than I thought. Everything come quickly, setup beautifully, and works flawlessly.

I use these for video editing (paired with a Scarlett 2i2) and the sound is crisp and clear with supporting, but not overpowering, bass. The sweet spot is perfect for a large desktop setup.

Totally awesome

Awesome awesome awesome. Perfect for what I needed. I am using this setup to practice my bass along to so NOT having the subwoofer is ok. Other than that, if used for more general monitoring, I would suggest the subwoofer.

Great Overall Monitor

question

Can these speakers be daisy chained for multiple surround sound experience. I only see (2) inputs on the back
Asked by: Matt H.
No, for that you would need analog line outs which they don't have.

Is there an EU power cord version available? One for use in Germany?
Asked by: Ryan
It supports both US and European voltages so all you would need is a standard US to German plug adapter not a voltage convertor. Also, the end which goes into the speaker is the standard computer power cable format so a cable should be easy to find.

How do these speakers sound without the subwoofer? Asking for video production.
Asked by: Andrew
The JBL 306P MkII Powered 6.5&quot; Two-Way Studio Monitors are very popular monitors that are commonly used for recording and video production without a subwoofer. The 306P MkII includes a 6.5&quot; woofer and 1&quot; tweeter, and has a frequency range of 39 Hz to 24 kHz (at -10 dB). If your audio has a lot of content in the frequency range below 39 Hz, then you may want to use a subwoofer along with the studio monitors.

Can you buy a single spearker as a center channel?
Asked by: Michael
You could use it as a center channel in a compatible surround mixing set up, but you would not be able to connect it to a home AV receiver for the purpose of watching movies.

Can the amplifier be bypassed to use as passive speakers?
Asked by: Anonymous
This is an active speaker, with the amplifiers built in, so it would not be used as a passive speaker. JBL LSR708i 8&quot; Master Reference Monitor (Single), BH #JBLSR708I would be a very god quality passive reference monitor to consider.

Can you add a subwoofer?
Asked by: Steven
Yes, a subwoofer such as the JBL LSR310S 200W Powered 10&quot; Subwoofer(BH #JBLSR310S) is a great pairing for the JBL 308P MkII Powered 8&quot; Two-Way Studio Monitors. You would feed the subwoofer from your main output signal, then feed the monitors from the subwoofer outputs. Link to LSR310S here: https://bhpho.to/3DCLlTY

None of my audio output devices have balanced connections - yet the back of the 305P's only have balanced inputs. If I use, let's say an audio cable that has a TRS connector on end (going to the speakers), and an RCA cable on the other end (going to my audio sources), will this work with the 305's?
Asked by: Bernd
It will work. For instance, I use them with my phone headset jack as the source. It may pick up more noise, but that may be an issue only with very long cables and in a professional situation. I never noticed any noise with my setup.
