Captivating Three-Way Floor-Standing Loudspeaker for Movie and Music Realism ? Powerful, accurate and styled to make a dramatic design statement in any listening environment, Studio 190 floorstanding loudspeakers employ performance-proven technologies and advanced materials to deliver the dynamic range, tonal accuracy and spatial transparency that have long been hallmarks of the legendary JBL sound. Featuring dual woofers and midrange drivers with high-output PolyPlas™ cones, and CMMD® Lite tweeter domes with proprietary Bi-Radial® waveguides, Studio 190 systems offer exceptional clarity and realism with outstanding bass response. Use them in combination with other Studio 1 Series speakers for a truly cinematic home theater experience, or use them alone to hear your favorite music like you’ve never heard it before.
A heritage of excellence. JBL® loudspeakers have been the overwhelming choice of music and movie professionals for more than 60 years, prized for their power, accuracy and dynamic range. JBL speakers are behind the screens of more than 50% of all movie theaters and hang in the rafters of premier concert venues worldwide. Chances are, many of your favorite songs and movie soundtracks were mixed and mastered on JBL studio monitors. But you don’t have to be a professional to bring the legendary JBL sound home. We build exceptional home entertainment systems that incorporate many of the same advanced technologies, materials and manufacturing techniques originally developed for our professional systems.
Studio performance at home. Powerful, accurate and styled to make a dramatic design statement in any listening environment, Studio 190 floorstanding loudspeakers deliver the dynamic range, tonal accuracy and spatial transparency that have long set JBL systems apart. The Studio 190s’ tower configuration places the midrange and HF drivers at the ear level of a seated listener, delivering more direct sound with fewer unwanted reflections. The rigid, heavily braced enclosure includes a rear-facing bass port for extended low-frequency response. The enclosure itself, available in a silver-tinted black or cherry vinyl finish, incorporates the distinctive JBL Weave design for a dynamic, one-of-a-kind look.
Proven technologies. The Studio 190 system features dual woofers with stiff, lightweight ribbed PolyPlas™ cones and rubber surrounds that dissipate heat and minimize distortion, even at high listening levels. The midrange driver, with a PolyPlas cone and cloth surround, is housed in a separate sub-enclosure to isolate its sound from that of the woofers, improving overall clarity. A CMMD® Lite tweeter dome with a proprietary Bi-Radial® waveguide eliminates unwanted resonances and distributes clear, distinct high-frequency sound over a wider listening area, greatly expanding your room’s “sweet spot.” All drivers are magnetically shielded for placement near video monitors when used in home theater configurations.
Music and movies as you’ve never heard them. Studio 190 speakers are voice-matched to the other speakers in the Studio 1 Series (Studio 120c, Studio 130 and Studio 180), making it easy for you to design the ideal home theater for virtually any listening space. But of course, they also perform brilliantly in stereo pairs, reproducing your favorite music with all the subtlety and nuance of the original performance.
I have picked up these speakers and connected them to my denon 3312. For the price, these speakers are going to be very hard to beat. I added a subwoofer and it only enhanced what the 190's provide. Clear crisp high end, warm mid's and a solid compact bass that has depth. I am not disappointed in the least with these speakers. They are JBL excellent!
