With the advent of "desk-top" audio, the need for compact, shielded powered monitors has spurred manufacturers to fill this niche. The LSR6325P, a biamplified nearfield monitor, falls into this category and is ideal for project and home studios, digital workstations and surround sound monitoring.
The LSR6325P incorporates JBL's latest transducer technology and the LSR Studio Monitor System design philosophies, which provides the engineer or mixer greater latitude in movement without sacrificing image integrity. The workspace where the engineer, producer and artist make critical mixing decisions is typically within +/-15° of the vertical and +/-30° of the horizontal when referenced to the center spot of the monitoring environment. As a result, critical decisions about image placement, EQ, balance and timbre are much easier to accomplish.
The 5.25" LSR6325P woofer is based on research and field proven experience in low distortion, high excursion designs. The cone forms a rigid piston and is supported by a butyl rubber surround. A cast aluminum basket provides advanced heat dissipation. The high frequency device of the LSR6325P is a 1" composite diaphragm integrated with an Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal (EOS) Waveguide with 60° x 100° dispersion, which is critical to smooth spatial response.
The LSR6325P combines two high power amplifiers with an active crossover system. Active crossover circuitry results in a smooth transition in both the frequency and time domains. This results in good imaging, a lack of time smear, and superior off axis response linearity. User adjustments include level calibration for interfacing with professional and semi-professional equipment and fine-tuning of levels with a variable level control. The frequency response can be gently tailored to compensate for placement and room absorption characteristics.
The LSR6325P is a worthy competitor in a crowded monitor market for use in mobile and studio control room applications.
