Can a JBL 4206 crossover frequency of 2.6 kHz be changed to a Crossover Frequency of 2.8 kHz

Hi, I'm interested in buying some JBL speakers but the seller has said that the crossovers have been changed from the original JLB 4206 ones to JBL 4208 crossovers. He said that the speakers sound fine. But I have checked and the original crossover frequency of 2.8 kHz has actually been changed to a crossover frequency of 2.6 kHz (I got this the wrong way around in my title but can't edit it).

Does anyone know if this would be OK or would it have a negative affect on the sound of the speakers at all?

JBL LSR Monitors - Sticky Mess

Has anyone ever found a suitable solution to the obnoxious sticky rubberized coating that JBL put on the front of their LSR series monitors?

I have a pair of the LSR4328P, and I've got no complaints about the sound, but you simply cannot touch the front of them without leaving your literal fingerprints in relief-form in the rubbery residue from the rubber breaking down chemically. Over-time they have changed from a slight rubberized touch to a very sticky, full blown adhesive feel. The entire front of the cabinet feels like the sticky side of gaffer tape now.

Monitors: JBL LSR-305 or Yamaha HS5?

Hi all,

I'm in the market for some studio monitors for mixing Rock and Pop under $500. I don't necessarily want the monitors to sound great, I just want them to help me make tracks that will translate well.
I've decided to go for 5" speakers because
(a) they are much cheaper
(b) I don't think I really need a lot of bass, I'm not producing EDM, and not many people that listen to my mix will have speakers that can recognise the bass clarity I will be able to get with larger speakers. (Also, I don't want to invest in a sub.)

smaller replacements for JBL 4410s?

for years i've used three JBL 4412 speakers across the front and two JBL 4410's for surround. i've always been very happy with this setup. now, however, i'm in a slightly smaller space and can't position the 4410's correctly for surround. there just isn't enough wall space for a proper mounting. i need something a bit smaller. do i need to replace the entire setup, or can i just get a smaller pair of something for the surrounds? i've never used a sub in this setup so i'm a little leery of going too small and throwing the surrounds too far out of balance with the front. thoughts?

JBL LSR305 or KRK Rokit 5 G3? What is your opinion?

I am looking for good price and good quality studio monitors for mixing, recording, composing.
I found kind of interedting and cheap stuff.
So, it's JBL LSR305 and KRK Rokit 5 G3.
I heard a lot of good words about KRK monitors, but I was kind of disappointed. The sound quality was much better on JBL monitors.
KRK monitors seemed like Hifi monitors not like for studio.

What is your opinion? Have you ever tried those both monitors?
All opinions are intersted, I hope you could help me to make a good decision.

JBL 4312

I was thinking about picking up a set of these primarily to use as 'listening' speakers but I wanted to get some thoughts on how they would work as monitors? I recently started getting back into listening to music casually, or dare I say even as enjoyment (the thought of such a thing!) as I realized that for the past many of years I've been almost strictly listening to music critically, either via learning songs, for tracking/mixing or just straight out of iTunes *yuck*.


Has anyone had any experience with this device? Im not worried about the speaker selecting side, more the room correction part. My room is fairly well treated, but I can always use help controlling low end modes.
I notice JBL recommend using a sub too, I would have thought thT would just add to any low end issues you might have?


Talk me out of buying a pair of JBL LSR4326P's.

Hi all,

I'm in the market for new monitors. I'm not in a situation where I can easily go to a store and A/B pairs, so I've done the standard "read every last review and message board on earth" routine and landed on the JBL LSR4326P's. I land here for three reasons:

1. They are the right size for my small room.
2. My room has issues, and the room correction function is alluring
3. $1000 is just about what I want to spend.

So, if anyone wants to talk me out of it, I'm all ears - or otherwise let me know your impression of these monitors.

JBL 4208 Near Field Monitors

Has anyone used this monitors. I wasn't able to find much information for these but I found them in a very good price. I used to mix on NS10 a lot. I'm mounting a small mixing/tracking room at home to do some of my ork and lo budget productions. Do you think this may ork?

I do mostly acoustical/jazz/fusion. Sometimes pop/rock too.

Do you think this will serve for a start.

Thank you in advance.
