Product Specifications

Inspired by the horizontal monitors that JBL supplies to top recording studios around the world, the Northridge E Series E50 horizontal/vertical, mirror-image bookshelf loudspeaker is a compact solution for filling your room with sound. Or, combine it with a Northridge E center channel and subwoofer to create a powerful home theater system. The E50 performs like a pro, with technology developed by JBL's Professional division. Equipped with JBL's tried-and-true titanium-laminate tweeters and PolyPlas drivers, the speaker reproduces high notes with extreme clarity. The lows and mids, assisted by the dual FreeFlow flared ports, are loud and clear, without unwanted distortion or boominess. The Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal (EOS) waveguide ensures that every seat is the best in the house for sweet music and intelligible dialogue, or for just rocking out. Since the transducers were purpose-designed to work together harmoniously, JBL's simple Straight-Line Signal Path (SSP) crossover network divides the signal with minimal processing (and minimal opportunity to degrade the signal). Dual sets of sturdy gold-plated, 5-way binding posts enable bi-amping or bi-wiring. With the high, midrange and low frequencies isolated, the E50's three transducers can reproduce their frequency ranges more efficiently and with greater accuracy. The computer-designed, lock-mitered cabinet virtually eliminates distortion, and its slim European profile won't overpower your room.
