JBL has introduced four new architectural loudspeakers to the JBL Synthesis family.

The new JBL Synthesis SCL-5 and SCL-8 in-ceiling loudspeakers and JBL Synthesis SCL-6 and SCL-7 in-wall loudspeakers are designed to pair with JBL Synthesis electronics in multi-purpose rooms, media rooms and smaller-scale home theatres.“Immersive audio is transforming how entertainment is created and reproduced and also how spaces are conceived, created and used,” said Jim Garrett, Senior Director, Product Strategy and Planning, HARMAN Luxury Audio.

Custom Install

All four of the new SCL expansion models utilise patented JBL technologies including annular ring diaphragm compression drivers, High-Definition Imaging horn geometries, advanced woofer designs, zero-bezel magnetically attached grilles, and a new patented “Cat Claw” mounting mechanism that saves time and makes installation far easier than traditional “dog leg” type designs.

JBL SCL 5, 6, 7 and 8 in wall and in ceiling speakers

JBL SCL-5 In-Ceiling Loudspeaker

The first dedicated SCL in-ceiling loudspeaker, the -5 2-way loudspeaker system features the JBL 2409H 1-inch compression driver tweeter and High-Definition Imaging (HDI™) horn assembly. The HDI horn is positioned at an angle on its baffle above the 7-inch black Advanced Aluminium Cone cast frame woofer with the woofer firing through an aperture that makes it virtually invisible acoustically to the compression driver and horn. This patented design is suitable for applications as far as 60-degrees off-axis – ideal for immersive audio systems. The Cat Claw mounting system, as well as gold-plated, spring-loaded binding post terminals, enable quick and reliable installation. The system features magnetically-attached round and square grilles and will begin shipping in February 2021 at $2,000 each.

JBL SCL-6 In-Wall Loudspeaker

The 2.5-way SCL-6 in-wall loudspeaker is a narrow footprint design with an on-axis horn suitable for LCR applications in small to medium systems or lower-level surround positions in larger systems. The SCL-6 features a patented 1-inch 2410H-2 compression driver tweeter, mated to a JBL patented High-Definition Imaging (HDI™) horn assembly and complemented with four 5.25-inch (130mm) black Advanced Aluminium Matrix cone, cast frame woofers. The SCL-6 discreetly integrates into any environment and décor and features a paintable zero-bezel, magnetically attached grille, Cat Claw mounting mechanism and gold plated, spring-loaded binding posts.  The SCL-6 ships in February 2021 and retails at $1,500 each.

JBL SCL-7 In-Wall Loudspeaker

The 2-way SCL-7 in-wall loudspeaker system is designed for off-axis listening as LCR, width and surround channels. The SCL-7 features JBL’s 1-inch 2410H-2 compression driver tweeter and patented High-Definition Imaging (HDI™) horn assembly, complemented with dual 5.25-inch (130mm) black Advanced Aluminium Matrix cones. As with the SCL-6, the patented Cat Claw mounting mechanism and gold plated spring-loaded binding posts allow for fast and easy installation. The SCL-6 ships in February 2021 and retails at $1,000 each.

JBL SCL-8 In Ceiling Loudspeaker

The JBL SCL-8, 2-way in-ceiling loudspeaker system is designed for off-axis listening in an immersive audio system. Essentially a smaller version of the SCL-5, the SCL-8 features the same transducers as used in the SCL-6 and SCL-7, including a 5.25-inch Advanced Aluminium Matrix cone cast-frame woofer, and 1-inch 2410H-2 compression driver tweeter mated to an HDI™ horn assembly. The SCL-8 comes with paintable zero-bezel, magnetically attached round and square grilles and will be available in February 2021 at the retail price of $1,000 each.

JBL Flagship SCL-1 And SSW-1

The addition of these four new models along with the flagship SCL-1 and SSW-1 models also announced recently, expands the JBL Synthesis portfolio to a total of eight SCL models and four SSW models. The SCL-1 and SSW-1 are tailored to large-scale and high-channel count systems in combination with the SDP-75 immersive surround processor and SDA amplifiers.
