JBL 5.1 Surround Sound System
The JBL 5.1 Surround Sound System consists of (5) JBL LSR6325P powered studio monitors and a JBL LSR6312P powered subwoofer. The LSR6312P is a 12 inch subwoofer that is powered by a 250 watt RMS amp. It uses the patented Neodynium Differential Drive (NDD) and comes with its own bass management system. It has a sum output for chaining more subwoofers as well as a -4dB alignment setting. You can also use the RMC (Room Mode Correction) system to flatten out the first null and peak in the bass area. The RMC Calibration Kit is included.
The JBL LSR6325P is a powered studio monitor for near-field studio applications. These monitors are magnetically shielded so they can be used near TV video and computer monitors. It has a usable frequency range of 70Hz to 20 kHz but has a low-end extension EQ that boosts the low-end to counteract the speakers' natural roll-off. This can be useful if you aren't using a subwoofer so you can hear what the low frequencies are putting out. I would recommend using a subwoofer with this studio monitor. Basically it has three settings: 65Hz (+3 dB), 56Hz (+6 dB), 48Hz (+10 dB). LSR means Linear Spatial Reference.
