JBL® Project ArrayTM Loudspeakers |
Cinematic Sound
You’ve been hearing something very much like them for years—behind the screen at
your favorite movie theater, and overhead in the rigging at major concert events—large
vertical arrays of constant-directivity horns have long been instrumental in delivering
the massive yet highly accurate sound that large audiences expect. JBL Project Array
brings professional venue-style speakers home.
Many of today’s home theater speakers are simply consumer designs adapted for
multichannel sources. But the high-performance Project Array loudspeakers are
professional designs optimized for smaller venues. A Project Array-equipped home
theater isn’t just an ordinary home theater. It’s a screening room that would please
the most discerning of Hollywood moguls. If movies are an important part of your
life, you’ll appreciate the difference. More important, you’ll enjoy the professionally
inspired, audiophile-grade sound on a daily basis.
JBL leads the world in the design and manufacture of professional audio equipment.
JBL is how movie soundtracks and music recordings are created, mixed and
mastered. JBL is how audio professionals work with sound, and how the rest of the
world hears it. Live or recorded, indoors or out, JBL has set the standard of realism
for more than 65 years. JBL Project Array brings “Pro
Sound Home”. With the technologies professionals are
accustomed to and the uncompromised quality they
insist upon, Project Array is home entertainment to
delight the most critical listeners, including those
who listen for a living.

Premium Network Designs
The Project Array crossovers use 4th-order acoustic transitions, ultra-low loss inductors and polypropylene
capacitors. The high and ultra-high crossovers are located on a separate board in a different section of the enclosure
to minimize crosstalk with the low-frequency crossover.
