JBL 4367 Flagship Monitor
For many years, iconic JBL loudspeakers have perfected the definition of luxury audio. The 4367 is no exception. The 2-way loudspeaker offers a cast-frame 15-inch woofer (2216Nd-1) with a powerful, patented Differential Drive® dual 3-inch voice coil and neodymium motor structure for outstanding behavior in the low to mid frequency range. Upper-mid and high frequencies are reproduced by a patented D2430K 3-inch dual diaphragm, dual voice coil compression driver with dual neodymium motor structures and JBL’s patented High-Definition Imaging (HDI™) waveguide horn.
- Patented D2430K 3-inch (75mm) dual diaphragm compression driver mated to patented High-Definition Imaging (HDI™) geometry horn.
- Patented 15-inch (380mm) Dual Differential Drive® woofer in bass-reflex design with dual front-firing tuned ports.
- Choice of Satin Walnut or Black Walnut furniture-grade satin wood veneers.
- High-frequency and ultra high-frequency level attenuators
- Advanced crossover network
JBL loudspeakers have been the choice of music and movie professionals for more than 60 years; they are behind the screens of more than 50 percent of all movie theaters and hang in concert venues everywhere. In fact, the line of JBL Studio Monitors dates to almost 50 years ago; yet the spirit behind their design began with James B. Lansing himself. This spirit has always been to use the best technology to deliver the best performance. To the Studio Monitor legacy, this has resulted in increasingly louder speakers of steadily greater dynamic capability, increasing accuracy of reproduction, all with JBL’s unique “bullet-proof” approach to design and assembly. The flagship JBL 4365 Studio Monitor was first produced in 2010, setting new levels of performance by employing the 1501FE-815″ woofer, a 476Mg high-frequency compression driver and horn, and an 045Ti -1 ultra-high-frequency compression driver and horn.
Now, the award-winning 4365 has been eclipsed by the new JBL 4367 Studio Monitor. The 4367, a result of further refinement of the design, uses a new version of the 2216Nd woofer as well as the patented dual-diaphragm D2430Kdriver coupled to a new patented High-Definition Imaging (HDI™) waveguide horn. The new 2216Nd-1 has been refined for a more articulate and defined low end, while the two high-frequency drivers of the 4365 have been replaced by the new, patented D2430K dual-diaphragm driver and HDI™ waveguide horn for increased output capability and to match the low frequency power compression in the high frequencies. The D2430K also now lets the 4367 producehigh- and ultra-high-frequencies from a single coincident source, improving the imaging capabilities of the system.
Although this may sound like the JBL 4367 is solely a professional monitor, but its accuracy, lack of power compression, and enhanced imaging make the 4367 a perfect choice for critical listening in 2-channel audio systems or for the LCR speaker system in a high-performance multi-channel home theater installation. Enhanced components used in the crossover for frequency division as well as for making connections help ensure audiophile levels of performance, while the attractive walnut and black walnut wood veneer enclosures allow the 4367 to blend in at home.
