In an ideal world, broadcast control rooms would have perfect acoustics. In the real world, however, production rooms in facilities and trucks have acoustic irregularities, especially when it comes to bass behavior. JBL LSR Series studio monitors are designed to give more accurate performance in problematic rooms. LSR models incorporate technologies including JBL’s exclusive RMC™ Room Mode Correction to deliver smoother, flatter frequency response and enable greater accuracy and better mixes in any workspace.
JBL offers a complete line of LSR6300, LSR4300 and LSR2300 Series studio monitors and subwoofers, along with the MSC1 Monitor System Controller that offers features found in the monitor sections of professional mixing consoles, and tunes any speakers for greater accuracy in problematic rooms. JBL LSR Series loudspeakers and the MSC1 are on exhibit at NAB 2011 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth C2619, Las Vegas, Nevada (April 11 – 14, 2011).
At the mix position, as great as 60% of the mid and high frequency sound is reflected sound. LSR Linear Spatial Reference design ensures not just the direct sound from the speaker, but the speaker’s off-axis reflected sound, is neutral for greater mid and high frequency accuracy at the mix position in a broad range of acoustic environments.
A second technology, JBL RMC™ tackles the room’s low frequency problems. In production control rooms, variations in low frequency response caused by room modes and speaker placement can produce exaggerated bass response that can mislead audio engineers. JBL’s RMC Room Mode Correction technology compensates for low frequency irregularities with a system that measures the room’s frequency response and applies corrective filters. All three JBL studio monitor lines offer an RMC solution. While the JBL LSR4300 series and two of the LSR6300 series models include RMC technology in the speaker, JBL’s MSC1 Monitor System Controller with RMC technology can be used with the affordable LSR2300 series studio monitors or any speaker system.
