Verry good studio monitors for electronic music production.

14.03.2016
Bought these studio monitors for electronic music production in my home studio. Main reason was that they go low enough to produce clear massive bass without sub-woofer. With proper EQ settings and right volume they produce such massive bass, that its barely suited for apartment block house, so i have to keep them sub 50% volume, and they go very loud for 8 inch studio monitors. Minimal studio size for this studio monitors is 4x4 meters, if you have smaller room they will be overwhelming.
Sound-stage is even in whole room, waveguide is working as intended. Class D power amp produce audible hiss from soft-dome high frequency transducer, but its not irritating and is almost inaudible from 90 cm distance, woofers are dead silent. Good audio interface/sound-card is a must cause studio monitors are really sensitive, middle grade consumer PC sound-cards like xonar dx wont do the job, and you will hear glitches from you pc hardware past 25% volume, i wont even tell about realtec HD inbuilt sound-cards. I would recommend something like focusrite 2i2 for these studio monitors, cause with qualitative sound interface sound is just phenomenal (for this price range). As for the Thomann t.akustik ISO-Pad 8, they do the job and eliminate vibration from monitors, front stickers fell off fist day thou, but it didn't made them less vibration absorbing :)

Overall JBL exceeded my expectations by large margin, recommend for anyone who want to produce electronic music and wants to avoid buying sub-woofer.
Wub wub out of 10.

JBL lsr 308 speaker

Giankilla, 30.06.2018
I currently only own one speaker, but plan on buying the second as i can imagine the power and sound will be a lot more complete with stereo function as opposed to mono, still it has proven to be a great speaker! I use it both for synths and other electronic instruments at amateur level, and the odd time for listening to music. Thanks thomann for great service and delivery!
