JBL LSR 2300 Series
The latest additions to the LSR group of products are the 2300 series, aimed at the home- and project-studio user. The series comprises three models: the 2325P, a two-way nearfield monitor with a five-inch low-frequency driver; the 2328P, another two-way nearfield with an eight-inch LF driver; and the 2310SP, a subwoofer with a 10-inch driver. All three new products are active, with the nearfields benefitting from a bi-amplified design. Staying true to the family heritage, the 2300-series products have been developed using JBL's Linear Spatial Reference (LSR - hence the name) technique that involves the designers taking 70 measurements to analyse and perfect the speakers' performance. As a result, the new monitors deliver superior imaging and smoother frequency response. Being a value-oriented range, the 2300 products don't feature the room-correction functions or front-panel meters of their older and more expensive siblings. Even so, bass extension figures are impressive: the five-inch model will reproduce frequencies as low as 43Hz, the eight-inch version goes down to 37Hz, while the subwoofer operates as low as 29Hz.
