JBL M2 Two-way Reference Studio Monitor - Single
Addressing the growing need for high dynamic range and reference-monitor accuracy in a broad range of studios, JBL has developed the JBL M2 Two-Way Reference Studio Monitor: a free-standing, 2-way system that can be placed in any environment to provide an exceptionally accurate monitoring experience. Leveraging a new generation of JBL high-output, ultra-low distortion transducers, the M2 provides in-room frequency response of 20 Hz to 40 kHz, and an extraordinary 123 dB maximum SPL to meet the demanding music, cinema and broadcast production requirements for impactful dynamic range.
D2 Dual Diaphragm Dual Voice Coil Compression Driver
The revolutionary D2 Dual Driver dramatically improves the sound and performance of high frequencies, providing an extreme output advantage over conventional systems with significantly higher array power, reduced distortion, double the number of voice coils and more than double the power handling. This results in a dramatic increase in pure high-frequency sound pressure levels in the same physical footprint with a 30% reduction in weight.
DIFFERENTIAL DRIVE TECHNOLOGY
Achieving extended, rich low-frequency performance within the M2 system design parameters required additional JBL engineering innovations, and the 2216Nd in the M2 is no “off-the-shelf” woofer. It employs no less than five patented technologies to allow bass extension to the limits of the audible range, and high output, free of power compression that is detrimental to a system’s low-frequency performance. Echoing the "dual driver" design of the D2, the 2216Nd utilizes dual neodymium magnets and two voice coils. To ensure the ultimate performance, even the use of special wire in the 2216 voice coils is a JBL patented application.
IMAGE CONTROL WAVEGUIDE
To support an imperceptible transition between the two drivers, and deliver exceptional imaging, JBL engineers pioneered a new patent-pending waveguide design that enables neutral frequency response, not just on-axis, but off-axis in the vertical and horizontal planes, all the way down to the M2’s 800 Hz crossover point.
LSR LINEAR SPATIAL REFERENCE DESIGN
By going beyond simple on-axis frequency response measurements, JBL defines the ultimate performance specification for new systems – what it will sound like in your room. At the mix position, you hear a combination of direct sound and sound reflected from the surfaces of the room. For sound arriving at the mix position to be smooth and neutral, it is not enough for a speaker to measure “flat” on-axis; it is essential the speaker has excellent off-axis performance.
Extended low-frequency performance and high SPL can be the formula for unwanted resonance. The M2 enclosure is constructed of rigid 1" MDF and with the aid of JBL’s interferometer, extensively braced for rock-solid stability at the system’s full rated power. The enclosure incorporates a JBL patented Slipstream port design with internal flares that ensure low-frequency efficiency while eliminating noise caused by port turbulence. Architecturally elegant, the M2 enclosure occupies a relatively small footprint, and can be transported to various working environments.
While offering exceptional accuracy "out of the box," the power of the M2 is fully realized with its intelligent in-room tuning and integration capabilities, ensuring optimum performance in your listening environment.
