Verry good studio monitors for electronic music production.
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.
The sound quality is amazing, I got friend with Yams 5' and other one with 7' and i prefer the jbl. The hiss that everybody is talking is quiet and doesnt get louder, if you pick the volume up and its only hearable. If you stay in the silence and just point your hearing to them. If you move a little, you can't hear the HISS, so overall doesn't makes problem. If you play music or something on a low level you totally lose the hiss...So over all DOESN'T bothers your managing with the sounds which is coming out of them ;) I wanted to add that Yams got also a hiss, So I choose them as monitors for my home studio. Recommend them, if your pockets are bigger, next level is Focal, not yams, not adams, Focal... OK? Read and learn.
