M2 Master Reference Monitor System lets you easily integrate the "big" monitoring experience into your studio. When it comes to hearing what you're doing, there's no substitute for "main" monitors. As small- and medium-sized rooms play an increasingly important role in content creation, accuracy and robust dynamic range are required from a speaker system with a modest footprint. A 2-way, floor-standing or soffit-mount speaker system with Crown IT5000HD amplification, the M2 delivers unrivaled performance and a jaw-dropping listening experience.

We create in a mobile world where purpose-built control rooms are increasingly rare. When you need maximum accuracy and dynamic range in a small- or mid-sized room, yesterday's monitor designs just don't cut it. Enter the M2. For their M2 Master Reference Monitor System, JBL's design engineers re-imagined the studio "main monitor" for today's music, cinema, and broadcast content creation studios. They invented new high-output, ultra-low distortion transducers and integrated them into a system that delivers a staggering 20Hz to 40kHz frequency response and a stunning 123dB maximum SPL, all in a trim cabinet that's equally at home floor-standing or soffit-mounted
World-class system performance requires world-class components. To achieve their cutting-edge design objectives, JBL's M2 design engineers leveraged new, patented JBL technologies in the D2 Dual Driver. This ground-breaking device delivers dramatically superior performance with extended high frequency, vanishingly low distortion, and extremely high output. The D2's output is coupled to JBL's Image Control Waveguide, which optimizes imaging and sound stage, serving up stunning high-frequency detail and natural balance at virtually any listening position in a wide range of acoustic environments.
Crown I-Tech 5000HD power amplifiers complete the M2 system, providing more than a kilowatt of pristine power to the M2's 2216Nd woofer and more than enough power for the D2 compression driver. Working with the M2's innovative Image Control Waveguide, the BSS Omnidrive HD digital signal processing in the Crown I-Tech allows for an ideal crossover, while giving you the option to store EQ presets.
JBL's M2 enclosure is made of rigid 1" MDF and is extensively braced for absolute stability at the system's full-rated power. The enclosure employs the patented JBL Slipstream port design with internal flares that give you low-frequency efficiency while eliminating port-turbulence noise. The elegant M2 enclosure takes up relatively little real estate in your studio and may be transported to other working environments as needed.
