Product Description


JBL's Next-gen Main Monitor
JBL's M2 Master Reference Monitor System lets you easily integrate the big monitoring experience into your studio. When it comes to hearing what you're doing, there's no substitute for main monitors. As small and medium-sized rooms play an increasingly important role in content creation, accuracy and robust dynamic range are required from a speaker system with a modest footprint. A 2-way floor-standing or soffit-mount speaker system with Crown I-Tech 5000HD amplification, the M2 delivers unrivaled performance and a jaw-dropping listening experience. Call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer and find out what JBL's M2 can do for you.

Maximum accuracy and dynamic range in small to mid-sized rooms
We create in a mobile world where purpose-built control rooms are increasingly rare, but when you need maximum accuracy and dynamic range in a small to mid-sized room, yesterday's monitor designs just don't cut it. Enter the M2. For their M2 Master Reference Monitor System, JBL's design engineers re-imagined the studio main monitor for today's music, cinema, and broadcast content creation studios. They invented new high-output, ultra-low distortion transducers. Then they integrated them into a system that delivers a staggering 20Hz to 40kHz frequency response, and a stunning 123dB maximum SPL. And it's all in a trim cabinet that's equally at home floor-standing or soffit-mounted.

The ultimate high-frequency driver for critical monitoring
World-class system performance requires world-class components. To achieve their cutting-edge design objectives, JBL's M2 design engineers leveraged new, patented JBL technologies in the D2 Dual Driver, a ground-breaking device that delivers dramatically superior performance with extended high frequency, vanishingly low distortion, and extremely high output. The D2's output is coupled with JBL's Image Control Waveguide, which optimizes imaging and sound stage, serving up stunning high-frequency detail and natural balance at virtually any listening position in a wide range of acoustic environments.

Big monitor bass response, perfected
If you've ever heard a loud playback on the bigs (main monitors) in a world-class studio, it's a revelation. For the uninitiated, your first reaction is one of being overwhelmed. After you've caught your breath, the first thing you marvel at is the incredibly tight and deep bass. You feel the crush of a well-recorded kick drum, the sheer magnitude of a monster synth bass. To record frequencies this low, you've got to be able to hear them. With the JBL M2 Master Reference Monitor System, you can. The 2216Nd low-frequency driver in the M2 is no off-the-shelf woofer. Designed from the ground up, it employs five patented JBL technologies to allow bass extension to the limits of the audible range - as well as high output, free of the power compression that can compromise a system's low-frequency performance. The 2216Nd employs dual neodymium magnets and two voice coils. And in a patented application, JBL even used special wire in its voice coils to ensure optimal performance.

JBL's Linear Spatial Reference design
Instead of the spectral smoothing used by some manufacturers, which conceals data, JBL's Linear Spatial Reference (LSR) goes beyond simple on-axis frequency response measurements, actually exposing flaws in speaker systems, such as resonances, inadequate dispersion, and other causes of off-axis coloration. LSR enables JBL to define the ultimate performance spec for a new system: what it will sound like in your room.

M2 Enclosure: extended bass performance with a small footprint
JBL's M2 enclosure is made of rigid 1" MDF and is extensively braced for absolute stability at the system's full rated power. The enclosure employs the patented JBL Slipstream port design with internal flares that give you low frequency efficiency while eliminating port-turbulence noise. The elegant M2 enclosure takes up relatively little real estate in your studio and can be transported to other working environments as needed.

JBL wrote the book on studio monitors
JBL and studio monitors are just about synonymous, aren't they? In the history of studio monitors, the name James B. Lansing looms large. In the mid 1940s, Lansing laid the engineering groundwork for the Altec Lansing 604 coaxial monitor, a design that remained the industry standard in U.S. recording studios through the 1950s and '60s. In 1946, James left the company he co-founded and launched JBL, which in the late '60s came out with the 4320, a main monitor developed in collaboration with Capitol Records in Hollywood. The 4320 and 4310 (the first nearfield monitor) put JBL at the forefront of studio monitor technology - where they have remained to this day.
