Studio 590

Behind the screen of your favorite movie theater and overhead in the rigging at major concert events, JBL® Professional loudspeakers with large vertical arrays of constant-directivity horns have long delivered the massive amounts of highly accurate sound and live music experience that large audiences expect. The most advanced JBL residential loudspeakers, including Everest DD66000, K2 and Project Array, also feature high-frequency compression drivers in a horn, coupling them with powerful low-frequency drivers to achieve the highest levels of dynamic realism and dimensional accuracy. Now JBL Studio 5 Series speakers, designed by renowned JBL chief engineer Greg Timbers, continue this performance-proven tradition. The JBL Studio 590 floorstanding loudspeaker combines a 1-inch (25mm) HF compression driver and Bi-Radial horn with dual 8-inch (200mm) cast-frame Symmetrical Field Geometry (SFG) woofers to deliver extraordinarily lifelike performance. Ideal for both music and movie systems, the Studio 590 system is powerful, accurate and styled to make a dramatic design statement in any listening environment.�
