JBL professional’s 305P MkII and 308 MkII powered studio monitors are highly regarded for producing dynamic, accurate sound while offering a high price-performance ratio. They are already a steal at retail but now Amazon has these affordable performers on sale.
The JBL Professional 305P MkII normally sells on Amazon for $186.25 per speaker. However, with this deal the price is slashed to $109/each, a savings of 41%. So, for $218 per pair, you can have fully powered speakers that sound fantastic and have the JBL pedigree. The only catch is that this is professional gear, so you’ll have to buy an adapter cable for XLR or quarter-inch inputs.
These speakers have 82 W of power and a specified frequency response of 49 Hz to 20 kHz, +/-3 DB. Maximum output is 108 dB.
If you need more than what the compact 305 MkII offers, check out the 308P MkII. The savings are not quite as awesome as the smaller sibling, but the deal is for $249/each, which is a 20% discount off the $311.25 regular Amazon retail price. This model uses an 8-inch driver, 122 W of amplification, 45 Hz to 20 kHz +/-3 dB response and can hit 112 dB peaks.
There’s also a 6” variant, the 306P MkII that sells for $198 per piece, but it is not currently on sale (but is still a screaming good deal for what you get).
