The JBL 4312SE is an update to the brand’s classic 3-way 12” compact studio monitor lineage created as a limited edition to celebrate JBL's 70th anniversary. The 4312SE reprises the driver configuration and aesthetics of the renowned 4310/4311 studio and L100 ‘Century’ hi-fi monitors from the 70s, and 4312 from the 1980s.
The 4312SE is designed and assembled at the home of JBL in Northridge, California. Supplied in matched mirror-image pairs to maintain detail, coherence and image quality whether placed horizontally or vertically with the tweeters aligned inside or outside, this versatile speaker is engineered for a wide range of environments and systems in keeping with its studio heritage.
The 4312SE’s famous 3-way configuration has been refreshed with JBL’s latest transducers including a 12-inch (300mm) 1200FE-8 Aqua-Plas-coated Pure Pulp cone woofer, 5-inch (125mm) 105H-1 polymer-coated Pure Pulp cone midrange, and 1-inch (25mm) 054ALMg-1 aluminium/magnesium alloy tweeter with waveguide. Front panel mid and high frequency trim controls, a bass reflex enclosure with front-firing port, binding post speaker terminals, and a black wood grain finish with removable black cloth grille complete the system’s ‘iconic’ pro-audio character. The 4312SE is available now from Karma-AV for £2500 per pair.
