Amazon has the JBL Professional 308P MKII 8-inch 2-way powered studio monitor for its lowest price ever, $199. This studio monitor has sold for around $250 for most of the year, and it has never gone lower than that until now. Keep in mind this price only covers one monitor, and you’ll most likely want two. You’re still saving overall.
The smaller versions of the monitor have also dropped in price. Get the six-inch monitor for $169 versus a street price of $200. The five-inch version has dropped from $150 to $129. All of these are the newest models from JBL.
The eight-inch speaker has a lot of flexible connectivity options, an adjustable volume control, and neutral frequency response across a wide area so you can fine-tune your mix. The new design improves on the bass with a lower harmonic distortion and more. You can also combine this studio monitor with JBL’s 10-inch powered subwoofer to extend the low frequency response.
On Amazon, these speakers have 4.5 stars based on 407 user reviews. Mix Online said the 308P MKII has “sound quality and performance that’s well above its price class” and called it one of the better values around.
