Studio 580

The JBL Professional loudspeakers you hear at your favourite movie theatre or concert venue share an important design 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 580 floorstanding loudspeaker combines a 1″ (25mm) HF compression driver and Bi-Radial® horn with dual 6-1/2″ (165mm)cast-frame Symmetrical Field Geometry (SFG) woofers that closely duplicates the experience of a live performance. Ideal for both music and movie systems, the Studio 580 floorstanding speakers are powerful, accurate and styled to make a dramatic design statement in any listening environment.
