Overview

This 5-inch powered studio monitor is a great fit for a project home studio. With a 5-inch low-frequency transducer outputting solid mids and bass, and a 1-inch high-frequency transducer, broadcasting clear highs, you'll benefit from balanced accurate audio for mixing, mastering and production. With 82 watts of efficient Class D amplification, the 305PMkII offers powerful sound, abundant output and great headroom.

The patented double-flared port is precisely calculated to work in concert with the woofer for deep bass response at all playback levels. Balanced XLR and 1/4-inch inputs connect to any recording outputs while maintaining professional signal quality. A +4dBu/-10dBV input sensitivity switch ensures compatibility with a wide range of consumer and professional signal sources and a high-frequency trim switch with +2dB settings allows the speaker's high-frequency response to be fine-tuned to taste.

Features

  • Delivers neutral sound across a large working space

  • Patented low-frequency port, producing deep bass response at all playback levels

Comments about JBL 305P MKII 5-inch Powered Studio Monitor:

I bought a pair of these after the rave reviews of the previous model 305s. They do sound good and I'm enjoying listening to all kinds of music through them without any fatigue at all. The only problem is that there is a very annoying amplifier hiss coming through the tweeters even when there is no audio connection at all, just the power cable. Some people say theirs are dead silent, but I'm my ears are a couple of feet from the speakers and I can hear the hiss over a somewhat noisy NAS and a big box PC with fans blowing. It's not a "loud" hiss, but it's loud enough that I can hear it even when the room isn't completely silent. Seems this is just part of the design though. Not sure I can live with it or not. I'm going to give it a few more days to decide.

Comments about JBL 305P MKII 5-inch Powered Studio Monitor:

Well, I give them 5 stars because they sound like that; best sound in their category and several ones above.
And no, there is no background hiss or anything, they are extremely quiet and silences are dark black.
I am actually re-listening lots of music to learn a lot about what I couldn't discern before. Apart from the joy of discovering details and instruments unheard previously, some recordings will not be faring well, their mistakes and limitations are now evident, now that the masking is gone.
And it is surprising how well they sound despite my small room.

Therefore most everything is superb, except for a little, very minor detail...
The other day I was on a session with a trumpeter, with whom we make some music together. Since my part was playing a recorded track as musical base (and his, was jamming on top), then - while I was busy equalizing the base live real-time -, suddenly on a particularly crowded Mid freqs. section of the track, a strange noise came out unexpectedly. I do know the track quite well, so I looked for resonances around, and there closely on the speakers themselves it was a middle freq. coveted rattling.

I understand it is resonates by so precise specific frequencies and harmonic content (that have to be played) at a very high volume that it even couldn't be replicated with just a frequency sweep.
I found it because that is the unusual type of middle freq. content and variation I like to play with, which is very rare in common musical genres.
So after reading on reviews at the net, there is a good chance that the new shinny black plastic cover needs some silicone/material for padding.
Since it remains an elusive event I will wait for some on line solutions/disassembling instructions before DIYing myself.

///No, I won't be returning my JBL LSR 305P MKII monitors, not for a minute, less for a day or more!

I do know the rack quite well so i looked for resonances around, and there closely on the speakers it was a middle freq coveted rattling.
I understand it is so specifically caused that it even couldn't be replicated with just a frequency sweep. However specific harmonic content at a very high volume does trigger it. I found it because that is the unusual type of middle freq. content and variation I like to move, which is very rare in common musical genres. Furthermore it came out on a live session with a maxed out volume, something the monitors are not designed for
So after reading on reviews there is a good chance that the new shinny black plastic cover needs some silicone/other material for padding.
And since it is a very rare and uncalled event, I will wait for someone trying it first and posting it on line.
No, I won't be returning my JBL LSR 305P MKII monitors, not for a minute!
