The latest loudspeaker from Harman’s Luxury Audio Group is the JBL 4309 Studio Monitor Compact Bookshelf Loudspeaker.
JBL says the new speaker is based on its 4349 model, and the new bookshelf speakers incorporates a 2410-2 1-inch compression driver mated to a High Definition Imaging (HDI) horn, and a 6.5-inch pure-pulp cone woofer.
According to the popular audio company, the JBL 4309 Studio Monitor utilizes much of the same design philosophies, including a similar acoustic design as the 4349 two-way loudspeaker.
Externally, the 4309 Studio Monitor features a classic JBL monitor industrial design such as a blue baffle, and JBL notes it offers the speakers in a choice of either walnut or black walnut satin veneer wood finishes. JBL also points out it finishes the aesthetics of the speaker with either a blue grille for the walnut finish model or a black grille cloth for the black walnut finish model.
Other features built into the 4309 Studio Monitor include dual sets of gold-plated binding posts to allow professional integrators to bi-wire/bi-amplify the speakers.
JBL adds that its new speaker has a 4-ohm impedance rating, along with an 87dB sensitivity rating, and its frequency response is 42Hz to 30kHz.
