HARMAN Professional Solutions’ JBL 9300 Series Surround Loudspeakers Provide Optimal Combination of Precision and Power for Cinema Environments

HOLLYWOOD, Florida — Making their debut to rave reviews at ShowEast 2015, HARMAN Professional Solutions’ JBL 9300 Series surround loudspeakers are designed to provide smooth coverage and excellent power handling for modern cinema applications. Equipped with positioning capabilities that simplify system design and installation, the first two models in the JBL 9300 Series, the 9300 and the 9310, feature new transducer technologies and waveguide designs that result in studio-grade performance and pattern control.

The JBL 9300 Series high-frequency horns feature JBL image control technology and asymmetric pattern control guided by exclusive Wave Shaping Vanes. Integral to the 9300 Series’ design, Wave Shaping Vanes distribute acoustic energy in proper proportion to the room. This technique provides a wave front that is sculpted to the room’s geometry and provides very precise coverage capability. Both models provide uniform, asymmetric 60-degree vertical coverage and 110-degree horizontal coverage. The 9300 Series loudspeakers feature three separate horizontal mounting planes at 15-degree angles for specific positioning to improve coverage. 

Both the JBL 9300 and 9310 loudspeakers are built around a high-power, long-throw 250mm (10 inch) low-frequency driver for smooth extended bass response. The high-frequency section uses a 25mm (1 inch) composite diaphragm compression driver with high output capability. The 9300 model offers 250W power handling; the 9310 model is 350W.

Input terminals are located on the top of both cabinets for easy access. The unique molded, black textured enclosure with open high-frequency horn and black grille designed to complement any décor.
