HIGH-DEFINITION PICTURES
HIGH-DEFINITION SOUND.
HEAR WHAT YOU'VE BEEN MISSING WITH THE JBL® ES SERIES. HDTV and the new HD-DVD
and Blu-ray Disc™ formats deliver video images that are up to six times sharper than the best the 20th century had to offer. But these
extraordinary new pictures are meant to be experienced with up to 7.1 channels of high-quality sound (which actually improves most
people’s perception of the picture itself). With the versatile new ES Series, high-definition video meets high-definition audio, and a
new era of high-impact home entertainment comes of age.
FOR ADVANCED, SIT-ANYWHERE 5.1- AND 7.1-CHANNEL HOME THEATER SYSTEMS,
as well as good-old-fashioned, best-seat-in-the-house music systems, the ES Series offers a variety of bookshelf, wall-mount and floorstanding
loudspeakers, and bring-down-the-house powered subwoofers. With innovative technologies derived directly from JBL Professional equipment, the
ES Series delivers powerful, accurate audio performance in systems that are built to play loud and long. And with two finishes to choose from –
black and cherry – they’re designed to look good anywhere, with a style that equals their substance.
REALISTIC, FULL-SPECTRUM
HIGHER HIGHS
With UHF drivers capable
of 40kHz, ES Series speakers
deliver high-end nuances you
probably have never before
experienced in recorded
audio.
CLEANER SOUND
The JBL ES Series uses
cellulose-fiber cones
reinforced with a polymer
coating for uniform pistonic
motion; this eliminates
internal resonances,
without increasing cone
mass. That means tighter,
more precise bass and
midrange reproduction.
BETTER
IMAGING
Originally developed for
JBL Professional LSR
studio monitors, proprietary
waveguides evenly disperse
high frequencies, delivering
more precise imaging over a
wider listening area.
GREATER
ACCURACY
The extremely thin yet
extremely rigid titaniumlaminate dome ensures
accurate, undistorted highfrequency response, even
at realistic (meaning loud)
listening levels.
DEEPER BASS
ES Series loudspeakers and
powered subwoofers feature
a JBL computer-optimized
bass-reflex port, which
extends deep bass response
while eliminating unwanted
turbulence.
LESS
DISTORTION
The ideal path from input
through components to
transducers is a straight line,
and all ES Series speakers
take the shortest path
possible. But they also employ
premium components to
minimize noise and signal loss.
SOUND FROM SLEEK,
UNOBTRUSIVE LOUDSPEAKERS.
THAT MOVIE SURPRISE THAT SCATTERED YOUR POPCORN?
Chances are, the JBL team had something to do with it. With the hyperrealistic sound you hear in the
majority of THX,® Dolby® and DTS® theaters worldwide. With the mixing and mastering of vast numbers of
music recordings and soundtracks. With the way audio professionals listen to sound at work. Now,
the high-definition ES Series brings all that JBL expertise to your home.

* The maximum recommended
amplifier power rating will ensure
proper system headroom to allow
for occasional peaks. We do not
recommend sustained operation
at these maximum power levels.
† The peak dynamic power is
measured by recording the
highest center-to-peak voltage
measured across the output of a
resistive load equal to minimum
impedance of the transducer,
using a 50Hz sine wave burst,
3 cycles on, 17 cycles off.
