Overview

The LSR305, part of JBL's 3 Series studio monitors, is a 5 in. powered studio monitor delivering professional performance at an affordable price points. This is a special limited edition run of the LSR305 in an exciting red finish. 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 in. long-throw woofer and its 1 in. 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 in. (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.

    Comments about JBL LSR305 5 in. Limited Edition Powered Studio Monitor - Matte Red:

    I was disappointed that they weren't in stock. I called and was told they weren't getting any more, sold out. Took a chance and went to local store and found one Red Matte on 14th Street in NYC. Now 4 hours later I see they have more on GC website. Not great customer service. Speaker sounds great but disappointed that I was lied to.

    Comments about JBL LSR305 5 in. Limited Edition Powered Studio Monitor - Matte Red:

    Great overall tone, and the low end is smooth and deep. Warmer mids and highs than the Presonus E5's they replaced. Love the red finish - a refreshing change from so much black gear. Loved them so much that I bought a second pair for my office.

    Sounds great for monitoring direct guitar!

    Comments about JBL LSR305 5 in. Limited Edition Powered Studio Monitor - Matte Red:

    I'm primarily using these with my Line 6 Helix for monitoring direct guitar at home. The Helix also acts as my audio interface for recording and playback of audio through USB. Everything sounds great so far, and the monitors themselves look great as well. I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a quality set of studio monitors at the < $500 price point.

        Comments about JBL LSR305 5 in. Limited Edition Powered Studio Monitor - Matte Red:

        I bought these for my Man Cave DJ setup and for me they sound phenomenal. The reason I bought these was that I plan to learn how to produce music in the future and for the price these are excellent. I can hear almost every element of the track, which is something I never thought about before. But now I know more about how sound works and these are well worth it.

          Got these on sale, had demo'd them before and liked how they sounded
          Now the black is on sale which is oreder even though I have a Nord, too much red.
          Sound is the same maybe I'll get a second pair.

          Very happy with the quality of the these monitors at such an affordable price. The last pair of Roland monitors that I bought in the same price range didn't come within a tenth of the quality of these JBLs.
