JBL - 4429 Studio Monitors - Bookshelf Speakers

Derived from the legendary JBL® model 4425 studio monitor – the brand’s first compression-driver system with a Bi-Radial® horn and a large-format woofer – the 4429 studio monitor incorporates a number of important improvements designed to give true studio performance in transportable size without requiring a subwoofer.

An ultrahigh-frequency transducer, an improved high-frequency compression driver and horn design, a new crossover network and improved internal bracing combine to give the 4429 an advantage over previous models in the naturalness, clarity and detail of its sound. Featuring a massive, 12-inch (300-millimeter) woofer and large compression drivers mounted in a one-piece SonoGlass® horn, the 4429 delivers quick, tight bass, a natural, well-focused midrange and clear, distinct highs to create listening experiences with all the richness and detail of live performances – all while delivering up to 200 watts when powered by a separate amplifier. Effortlessly delivering the full bandwidth and dynamics of the newest digital media – yet without suppression at any listening level – the 4429 reveals subtleties that you may never before have experienced in recorded music. JBL engineers have directed every detail of the loudspeaker’s design and construction toward a single goal: uncompromised sonic performance.
