Maximum Output Transducers: 2012H and 2020H

Unlike JBL’s traditional SFG (Symmetrical Field Geometry) motor structures, the Maximum Output transducers employ a new magnetic structure with a copper sleeve symmetrically positioned on the polepiece above and below the top plate. This copper sleeve is located in a larger voice coil gap than is found in traditional designs, and provides significant reductions in both second and third order harmonic distortion with a single design element. Due to this innovative new magnet structure design, these transducers exhibit extremely low midband distortion and feature a very smooth, gradually rising response over the transducers' target operating ranges.

A hallmark of these units is their enhanced dynamic compression characteristics. Power compression in all loudspeakers results from the increase in voice coil temperature and the consequent rise in dc resistance. Power compression at high operating levels can rob music of its essential dynamics. Professional users who are concerned with performance under long-term periods of continuous usage at or near rated power will find that these transducers exhibit approximately 3 dB of power compression at full rated power.

2020H 300 mm (12 in) Midrange/LF Transducer

2020H Specification Sheet
(Adobe Acrobat, 150kb)

The 2020H Maximum Output transducer is specifically designed to provide smooth, low-distortion midrange output for the highest quality sound reinforcement applications. It is especially well-suited for use in high-powered multi-way systems for concert and theatrical use. The 2020H can be mounted in small enclosures while maintaining smoother, peak-free response as compared to other 300 mm (12 in) loudspeakers.
  • 300 W continuous pink noise power capacity
  • 8 ohm impedance
  • 76 mm (3 in) edgewound aluminum ribbon voice coil
  • 50 Hz - 5.5 kHz response
  • 103 dB sensitivity, 1 W. 1 m (3.3 ft)
  • New magnet structure with enhanced distortion-reduction characteristics
  • Net weight: 8.6 kg (19 lb.)
