Harman’s JBL Synthesis has introduced the SCL-2 in-wall loudspeaker, utilizing proprietary and patented D2 compression driver and High-Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide technologies and components.
The SCL-2 joins the SCL-3 and SCL-4 in the Synthesis Custom Loudspeaker range.
The SCL-2 is designed with a 2.5-way, triple 8-inch (200mm) driver configuration for low-frequency extension with high output capability and powerful dynamics. A D2415K dual voice coil, dual 1.5-inch (38mm) annular ring diaphragm Teonex compression driver with advanced HDI geometry horn works in conjunction with powerful cast-frame, 8-inch (200mm) Advanced Aluminum Matrix cone woofers with low distortion motor structures.
The loudspeaker’s 5.5-inch (140mm)-deep enclosure fits standard wall construction applications and features a Sonoglass precision molded baffle assembly with integrated HDI waveguide/horn, and a zero-bezel, magnetically attached grille.
The loudspeaker’s enclosure can be oriented with the horn closer to the top or bottom, or on its side for center channel or reduced height applications. SCL-2 systems can be mixed and matched with other SCL speakers or any JBL Synthesis loudspeakers.
“We’re expanding the successful SCL range with our most powerful in-wall model ever,” said Jim Garrett, senior director, product strategy and planning, Harman. “The SCL-2 is designed to take advantage of our professional grade loudspeaker technologies, materials and manufacturing processes to bring JBL’s authentic cinema sound quality to the home theater experience.”
Designed to provide ultimate performance and the highest levels of dynamics from any in-wall loudspeaker, the SCL-2 can discretely integrate into any environment and décor. They can also be installed in a traditional application behind acoustic fabric or woven/perforated video screens without installing the grilles. They feature a discrete matte black baffle, HDI waveguide, and transducers, with a paintable white grille.
