JBL Professional introduces FIR Tunings for Select Control Contractor Series Loudspeakers

HARMAN Professional Solutions has announced JBL Professional FIR tunings for select Control Contractor Series loudspeakers, providing further enhanced performance. 

The FIR filters have optimised both frequency response and phase response to a finer degree of precision than was typically previously possible with standard IIR “parameter-based” filters. Additionally, these FIR filters were designed to meet JBL Pro’s new V6 FIR tuning standard.

These V6 Tuning Features include an equalization to a neutral frequency response, improved linearized phase response above 300 Hz, the ability for users to start with a known flat voicing for further EQ’ing to the needs of the install, improved signal coherence, and matched gain to allow for smooth system tuning and subwoofer integration.

The V6 FIR tunings are for COL600 & COL800, SLP12/T & SLP14/T, GSF6 & GSF8, and Control 68HP products.  The posted tunings are for use with Crown DCI-N and DCI-DA power amplifiers. Additional tuning files are expected to be released for Crown CDI DriveCore amplifiers.

Offering superior sound and broad and targeted coverage choices for a range of indoor and outdoor commercial applications, these full-range speaker and subwoofer models give installers versatile options for building new systems or augmenting existing systems.

All models feature premium multitap transformers for use in distributed systems and are switchable for direct operation. These sleek, elegant speakers—several of which are winners of prestigious international design awards for industrial design excellence—complement a broad range of décors and finishes. The Control Contractor V6 FIR Tunings were developed to enhance the Control Contractor lineup, ensuring unmatched performance from this versatile loudspeaker line.
