JBL’s new JBL Performance LS Series Loudspeakers are designed to give the home electronics systems contractor a highly refined new tool for upmarket system performance at a cost-effective price.
The new LS Series includes a compact bookshelf loudspeaker (the LS40), two floor-standing tower speakers (the LS60 and LS80), and a center-channel loudspeaker (the LS Center). The sound is articulate and has high-output capability without any distortion or dynamic compression.
Proprietary PolyPlas polymer-coated-cellulose-fiber cone material and with heat-resistant Kapton voice coil formers have been designed for articulate and powerful bass response. Additionally, a 3.5-way crossover network is employed, which allows the woofers to operate in different frequency ranges, a configuration that provides a smoother transition between all drivers for more balanced sound over a wider listening area.
“The JBL LS Series is the next logical step in our constant pursuit of engineering and sonic excellence,” market director of Harman Performance AV Group, Kevin Voecks, said. “With the LS Series, JBL is offering home entertainment systems designers and contractors a unique mixture of technology and aesthetics, all at an incredibly affordable price point. Thanks to the wide diversity of its product categories, JBL can provide this audience a complete solution for home theater and home entertainment audio applications, and JBL speaker technology remains at the core of that capability.”
