JBL 4305P & SUB80P

"Studio Monitor" and Subwoofer by JBL

On the occasion of the Consumer Electronics Show CES, Harman Luxury Audio presented new products for the brand JBL: an active bookshelf speaker as well as a subwoofer.

The JBL 4305P is said to be the first whole active music system in the "JBL Consumer Studio Monitor Series". According to Harman/JBL, this system comes with a total output power of 300 watts-RMS, composed of 125 watts per 5.25-inch cast-frame woofer and 25 watts per tweeter. The Connections and controls sit on one of the two speakers, while the secondary accepts signals from this primary speaker; which is left and which is right is said to be freely selectable. The connection between the speakers works either wirelessly or via the included Digital Link cable.

The 4305P has a built-in streamer as well as 24-bit/192kHz DAC, and can also be controlled wirelessly via Google Chromecast Built-in, Apple AirPlay2 or Bluetooth. A USB and optical digital input also benefit from the DAC; the speakers additionally offer a 3.5mm analog input. There's also an analog input with a combination of XLR and 1/4-inch TRS phono connectors, including a switch for selecting input sensitivity. In addition, the 4305P offers an activatable bass contour control and subwoofer output, as well as MQA capability and Roon Ready certification.

Another new product is the JBL SUB80P, a wireless powered subwoofer. It features a downward-firing 8-inch driver and, according to Harman, a system output of 200 watts-RMS and a dynamic output of 400 watts. It has left/right and LFE RCA inputs on the rear panel, but can also be driven via the included 2.4 GHz wireless transmitter, which has left/right RCA connectors and can be placed near source devices.

The JBL 4305P compact and powered "studio monitor" is scheduled to be available in the first quarter of 2022*, in either walnut with a blue grille or black with a black grille. JBL's SUB80P wireless subwoofer is also scheduled to be available in a high-gloss black finish in the first quarter of 2022*.

*Availability for Germany.
