Overview

The LSR305, part of JBL's 3 Series studio monitors, is a 5" powered studio monitor delivering professional performance at an affordable price points. 3 Series Powered Studio Monitors are first to incorporate JBL's exciting new technology, the Image Control Waveguide. In conjunction with 3 Series high-performance transducers and system components, the Image Control Waveguide lets you hear detail and depth in recordings as you've never heard before.

The LSR305's 5" long-throw woofer and its 1" damped woven composite Neodymium tweeter are designed from the ground up to reproduce the powerful transients and micro dynamics of your mix. These drivers deliver impressive deep bass and smooth high frequency response beyond the range of human hearing.

JBL's Patented Slip Stream low frequency port design works in concert with the woofer to produce deep bass response at all playback levels. The double-flared shape of the port is precisely engineered for greater low-frequency extension and reduced turbulence.

Big Power, Big Sound
3 Series efficient Class D Amplifiers provide abundant power to deliver the output and dynamic headroom needed for the most demanding production styles

Professional Balanced Inputs
Balanced XLR and 1/4" (6 mm) TRS inputs give you the options you need to connect your 3 Series to any signal source while maintaining professional signal quality.

Selectable Input Sensitivity
The -10 dB/+4 dB sensitivity switch ensures compatibility with a broad range of signal sources, allowing you to connect the 3 Series to high output professional gear without any danger of input overload.

LF Trim and HF Trim "TRIM" switches for both the Low and High Frequencies give you excellent control over the 3 Series sound in "your" room. Use these to fine-tune the amount of bass and treble you hear to compensate for room acoustics, program material and your personal taste.

JBL Professional Reliability
Prior to becoming a production-ready design, each 3 Series model is subjected to JBL's tough 100-hour power test, in which the speaker is required to play continually at full output for 100 hours without failure. This demanding test ensures your 3 Series speakers will deliver years of reliable performance.

JBL LSR Design - Your Music Needs a Point of Reference
While most manufacturers take only a single on axis measurement of the speaker's performance, this doesn't tell how it will sound in your room. JBL's LSR Linear Spatial Reference design criteria requires seventy-two measurements yielding more than 1,200 times more data, enabling JBL to engineer a speaker that "sounds right" in any working space. With LSR design, 3 Series Studio Monitors deliver superior accuracy regardless of the size and shape of your room, so your mixes "hit their mark" when heard on any playback system.

My renewed interested with JBL speakers started when I bought two pair of small bookshelf speakers for our bookstore. At the time I thought they were very good, but they eventually *vastly* exceeded my expectations - those speakers rock! Well, for the Studio 230's I went to great lengths to find a showroom that would play them for me - this time my expectations were much more ambitious: defeat the $1500 a pair Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) CM5's by performing as well for less than 25% of the cost. Here I am to tell the world that the Studio 230's met that challenge!

I really wanted to like these monitors after all the reviews, and they do sound great. The issue is they are very unreliable. I bought a pair and one of them quit powering on after just 2 uses. After reading, I found this is a common issue, so if you have the flexibility to lose a monitor and wait for it to be fixed these might be good. If you need some reliable workhorse monitors, you need to look elsewhere.

Comments about JBL LSR305-WH 5" Powered Studio Monitor - Limited Edition White:

These speakers are really good for the price that they are offered. Good sound range and amazing crisp quality, perfect for home studios or a professional one where a more basic monitoring is needed.

The only down point with it is that Guitar Center made a mistake selling these under a "bundle" promotion and not having their stock matching what the website is showing regarding delivery dates. I had to wait 3 business days more than i payed for (2-day express shipment) due to their stock system not being updated accordingly. Be careful when buying these and call the GC store close to you to make sure that they have these in stock or at least to have an idea about when they will arrive at your address.

    Comments about JBL LSR305-WH 5" Powered Studio Monitor - Limited Edition White:

    this is my first set of studio monitors. I did research into the best quality sound speakers. a few youtube videos eventually led me to buy these speakers. I'm glad i made this decision because these speakers sound great. the great part for me is that I only need these to fill sound in part of the room, which works perfectly. The other parts of the house only hear a light bass frequency, but nothing over bearing. I can definitely turn these up so that they could sound loud in the whole house if I needed too. They sound great without the sub, but I eventually will be purchasing the sub to go along with these speakers and complete the set, but by themselves, they are great sounding for all types of music.

      Comments about JBL LSR305-WH 5" Powered Studio Monitor - Limited Edition White:

      These monitors sound amazing! Very flat and very clear. For 5 inch monitors I was blown away at the bass reproduction these monitors have. The highs are super smooth and easy on the ears, even at high volumes. Vocals really pop out of these things and acoustic instruments sound as if they are being played next to you. The detail of each note played is amazing. Cymbals are clear and present, strings come right out of the mix, and the low end is tight and focused. Although the bass is great, you may wish to add a sub for super low frequencies. Overall a really pleasing sound that makes listening to tracks easy and instrument placement in the mix apparent and easy. Comparing these to KRK's, these are much clearer and less boomy. I can only imagine what the 8's must sound like!

            Speakers that punch above their weight

            from George Town Penang Malaysia

            Comments about JBL LSR305-WH 5" Powered Studio Monitor - Limited Edition White:

            I have onwed many speakers, chiefly are high end English speakers. English loudspeakers are great for musics, but when you need the punch from a movie or a concert, you definitely need JBLs. Im currently building a 7.2 channel system with all JBL studios. These speakers brings the absolute detail out of any DTS concert I have. I am hearing new details that Ive never heard before. This is an absolute recommended product

            Comments about JBL LSR305-WH 5" Powered Studio Monitor - Limited Edition White:

            These Studio 230 speakers sound outstanding. I am very impressed with their excellent range from a deep full base to a clear and smooth high end. I have the Loft 40's and was satisfied with them until I heard the 230's. The 230's sound fuller and the base stronger. I'm afraid after getting the 230's the 40's are being moved to the back for surround duty. In true to JBL form the 230's deliver the legendary clear and undistorted sound that JBL has been known for for many years. I am very happy I got these speakers and would recommend them to anyone that still values true quality in sound.

              Great monitors for the Money! Simple like that. You can't find anything better for this price.

              I came from M-Audio Bx5a to this one and it was a great improvement. Nice response and clear
              sound.
