In-Wall Speakers

JBL Studio 2 and Arena In-Wall / In-Ceiling Speakers

Harman today announced new JBL Studio 2 and JBL Arena in-wall and in-ceiling speakers speakers, engineered to complement the existing JBL Studio 2 and JBL Arena cabinet loudspeakers. Designed for the custom installer, the JBL Studio 2 and JBL Arena architectural speaker lines meet homeowners’ needs for theater-quality sound, all while fitting seamlessly into their interior décor. The speakers deliver hard-hitting, yet detail-oriented audio perfection, with advanced adjustable features engineered for unmatched sound and a subtle aesthetic, regardless of location or configuration.

The wide sound dispersion of the speakers envelops the room, while the JBL High Definition Imaging (HDI) Waveguide provides flexibility with speaker placement. JBL’s HDI Waveguide technology, which takes its cues from the legendary JBL M2 Master Reference Monitor, consists of a computer-optimized driver positioning and network integration. The result is superlative performance and lifelike soundstage imaging throughout the entire room.

The Architectural Series’ nearly invisible, zero-bezel magnetic, paintable grill flawlessly blends into a wall or ceiling, pleasing both audiophiles and interior designers alike. The XL-2 installation bracket makes for a sturdy, reliable fit in walls up to 2” thick, and its specialty mechanical grip minimizes vibration.

The Studio 2 line features pivoting tweeters made from composite aluminum that target audio directly to the desired listening location. Additionally, the precision of the tweeter audio level adjustment allows installers and homeowners to fine-tune high frequencies by 3dB to suit room conditions and personal taste.
