JBL 708P is the self-powered reference monitor for critical music recording, film post and broadcast production applications. The 708P leverages new patent-pending driver technologies and JBL’s renowned Image Control Waveguide to deliver extraordinary output, stunning detail, an expansive soundstage, and greater accuracy in a broad range of rooms. 708P delivers several times the output of other comparably-sized studio monitors, providing significantly greater dynamic range and greater working distances.
Next-generation JBL driver technology
JBL 708P leverages JBL patents and next-generation driver technologies to provide unparalleled output with greater dynamic range and extended frequency response in demanding production applications. The JBL 2409H high-frequency compression driver incorporates an innovative low-mass annular diaphragm to deliver smooth response beyond 36 kHz, with extraordinary output and very low distortion. The 728G low-frequency transducer leverages JBL patented Differential Drive® technology to reduce power compression for greater sustained output and extended, linear low-frequency performance below 35 kHz. These proprietary drivers allow the 708P to deliver two to three times the output of conventional studio monitors.
Patent-pending Image Control Waveguide
First introduced in the JBL M2 Master Reference Monitor, the JBL Image Control Waveguide ensures accuracy and neutrality while providing a wide sweet spot with increased sonic detail. By enabling an acoustically seamless transition between the woofer and high-frequency transducer, the waveguide provides a detailed sound stage and accurate imaging across the entire frequency spectrum. Smooth, neutral on- and off-axis frequency response allows the JBL 708P to deliver neutral response across a wide listening area in a broad range of rooms.
Integrated 250W + 250W dual amplification system with internal floating-point DSP
JBL 708P features a built-in dual amplification system that’s optimized for its high-output drivers. A 250W amp powers the 2409H high-frequency transducer and a 250W amp is dedicated to the 728G low-frequency transducer. This combination delivers unparalleled output and detail at greater listening distances, making the 708P ideal for post production and mastering environments
Comprehensive room EQ and delay controls
The 708P design yields exceptional neutrality in any room, the monitor also features on board room equalization, so you can compensate for the adverse effects of room acoustics and enjoy the most accurate sound reproduction in any listening environment. In addition to eight bands of Room EQ, twelve bands of User EQ allow customized response curves such as the X-Curve, and compensation for “transmission-loss” when placed behind a perforated cinema screen. User-enabled digital delay allows virtual alignment of speakers relative to the listening position, while additional AV Synchronization delay is available to compensate for latency in video displays and align with distant FOH systems
