The Harman Luxury Audio Group has unveiled the JBL 4309 Studio Monitor, a compact studio-grade bookshelf loudspeaker modelled on its award-winning JBL 4349.

Combining a high-end acoustic performance with retro-style, the new JBL 4309 loudspeakers features a 2410H-2 25mm compression driver coupled to a High-Definition Imaging (HDI) horn, and feature a 6.5-inch, cast frame pure-pulp cone woofer.

The new model is a smaller bookshelf version of the recently released 4349 12-inch two-way monitor loudspeakers and features many of the same patented JBL acoustic technologies. It’s aimed at music lovers who want the performance of the JBL 4349, but in a more manageable package.

“Our Studio Monitor series of high-performance loudspeakers are some of our most popular models globally as there simply isn’t anything else like them,” says Jim Garrett, Senior Director, Product Strategy and Planning, Harman Luxury Audio. “The combination of the heritage pro-style aesthetics and state-of-the-art acoustic technologies packaged together in the small form factor of the 4309 results in a fantastic loudspeaker discerning listeners will love.”

Designed in Northridge, California, JBL’s revolutionary High-Definition Imaging (HDI) horn and compression driver technology is the culmination of 75 years of ongoing research and innovation.

Already announced as a Red Dot Design Award 2021 winner, the studio monitor sports a classic JBL monitor design with the iconic blue baffle and is finished in a choice of walnut or black walnut furniture-grade satin wood veneers. A blue walnut or black walnut cloth grille completes the appearance. There’s a choice of single-ended or bi-wire/bi-amplified connections.

The JBL 4309 Studio Monitor begins shipping in June, priced at £1,799 per pair.
