25 – 360 watts suggested amplifier power range

JBL engineers designed the Studio 180 floorstanding loudspeaker to deliver enhanced, room-filling sound from a compatible AVR (audio/video receiver) or 25- to 360-watt power amplifier, whether you are using the Studio 180 as a stand-alone unit or as part of a surround-sound system.

Ribbed PolyPlas low-frequency cone

The ribbed construction of the 6-1/2-inch (165-millimetre) PolyPlas™ cone improves the Studio 180’s strength while reducing its low-frequency distortion. A lightweight alloy allows for precise movement, ensuring that bass instruments always sound powerful but never “boomy.”

null

Midrange driver housed in sub-enclosure

Ideally, sounds should blend together within your ears, not interact with one another before they reach you. To prevent sound interference from the upper and lower frequencies, the JBL Studio 180 floorstanding loudspeaker’s 4-inch (100-millimetre) PolyPlas™ midrange driver features a separate sub-enclosure. And that’s not all – a lightweight alloy such as the PolyPlas material allow for precise cone movement to maximize sound clarity, especially on voices.

Patented CMMD Lite 1" (25mm) tweeter

The CMMD® high-frequency tweeter starts as an aluminium dome that is sandwiched on either side with ceramic. The result is strong enough to hold its shape when moving rapidly yet light enough to eliminate unwanted resonances. What your ears notice, however, is subtle, clear detail and lasting, unsullied sound performance.

null

Proprietary Bi-Radial waveguide

The Studio 180’s Bi-Radial® waveguide disperses high frequencies widely without loss of quality or accuracy. The result is precise, 360-degree imaging, sharp and rich high-definition (HD) sound and a wide listening position that makes every seat in the room the one to fight for.

Magnetically shielded for video proximity

Loudspeakers use magnets. Your TV hates magnets. But that doesn’t mean that you have to listen to movies on your television set’s often inadequate loudspeaker. Nor do you have to compromise your HDTV’s high-definition capabilities. We’ve designed the Studio 180 floorstanding loudspeakers to form an integral part of any home theatre experience. We’ve optimized them for inspired performance while making them magnetically shielded to prevent any interference with video sources.

null

Distinctive JBL Weave design

The JBL Weave design is a perfect convergence of form and function. Whether you need your JBL Studio 180 loudspeakers blend in or stand out, we’ve designed them to look sharp and stylish in any room.

Description

Sound that’s clear and undistorted.

JBL® Studio 180 floorstanding loudspeaker will let you hear voices and sounds that you might never have realized were there. Created with the same sonic detailing used in our professional loudspeaker systems, the JBL Studio 180 ensures pristine and undistorted sound, whether you play it at low and subtle or high, maximum-SPL playback levels. Secret to the Studio 180’s exceptional performance lies in its advanced materials, with PolyPlas cones for the low-frequency woofer and midrange drivers, and a CMMD Lite dome for the high-frequency tweeter. The result is reduced distortion and the virtual elimination of unwanted resonance, while precise cone movement maximizes the sound clarity, especially on voices. And the Studio 180 features a cabinet design that looks as alluring as it sounds. Featuring a signature JBL Weave design, the Studio 180 can stand out or blend in. It’s your choice.
