JBL Synthesis has introduced its SK2-3300 LCR loudspeaker, incorporating driver technologies directly derived from the company’s flagship Project Everest DD66000 speaker to deliver exceptional musical accuracy and fidelity in custom-installation multichannel home theaters and music systems.
The SK2-3300 employs a three-inch beryllium diaphragm midrange/high-frequency compression driver.
The three-way, THX Ultra2-certified SK2-3300 utilizes compression drivers. The ultra-high-frequency driver uses a one-inch beryllium diaphragm to provide extended frequency response beyond 50kHz. The driver is mated to a JBL Bi-Radial horn that delivers 60 x 30 degree coverage, according to the company.
The SK2-3300 employs a three-inch beryllium diaphragm midrange/high-frequency compression driver that operates in conjunction with a 100 x 60 Bi-Radial horn to deliver smooth, natural, richly detailed midrange and treble. The ultra-high-frequency and midrange/high-frequency horns are shaped to provide optimum dispersion both on- and off-axis, with a smooth tonal balance and precise imaging. The Bi-Radial horns are made from acoustically inert SonoGlass material.
The SK2-3300 utilizes dual 10-inch woofers with cones that are treated with proprietary JBL Aquaplas material, which damps the cone’s internal resonances for more accurate low-frequency response with lower distortion. The woofers incorporate dual three-inch heavy-duty edge-wound voice coils, neodymium motor structures, and cast-aluminum frames to deliver articulate bass even at higher volume levels.
The loudspeaker features a heavily braced enclosure that minimizes unwanted internal resonances; a curved front baffle to eliminate the “smearing” and colorations that can be caused by diffraction; dual binding posts that allow bi-wiring or bi-amping, and many additional refinements.
“With the introduction of the SK2-3300, JBL Synthesis can now offer the extraordinary musical realism of the standard-setting Project Everest DD66000 in a loudspeaker that’s designed for custom installations,” stated Jim Garrett, market manager, Harman High Performance AV. “In addition to its suitability as the left, center and right channels of a multichannel speaker system, the SK2-3300 is also ideal for use as a companion center channel to the JBL Project Everest DD66000 and Project K2 S9900 loudspeakers.”
