Studio 530

The JBL Professional loudspeakers you hear at your favourite movie theatre or concert venue share an important characteristic with our most advanced home speakers. They all employ constant-directivity compression drivers in a horn to deliver the massive amounts of high-impact, highly accurate sound and live-music experience that large audiences and critical listeners demand. Now JBL Studio 5 Series speakers, acoustically designed by renowned JBL chief engineer Greg Timbers, continue this performance-proven tradition. The JBL Studio 5 series features top-of-the-line professional speaker technology in a modern design while being very affordable. The JBL Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeakers combine a 25mm (1″) HF compression driver and Bi-Radial® horn with 130mm (5-1/4″) cast-frame Symmetrical Field Geometry (SFG) woofer to deliver extraordinarily lifelike performance. Ideal for both music and movie systems, the Studio 530 bookshelf speakers are powerful, accurate and styled to make an overwhelming statement in any listening environment.
