There is a blip around 700 Hz visible in the above graphs and we can see it as resonance in waterfall display: But for recreational listening, as Amir noted, those kinds of narrow anomalies really aren't as much of a problem as you might think from looking at a graph. (I was relieved that his subjective impressions matched up with mine. I've seen people freak out over that 1.6khz dip when looking at graphs alone)

My recent discussion with Earl Geddes where he recommended one minute on, measure, another minute, measure. The 305 and 306 somewhat ended my hi-fi buying hobby. I'll be the first to admit the woofer and tweeter are nothing special. Cheap, even. But as Amir alluded to, thanks to their excellent controlled dispersion they have a wonderful ability to sound "right" in the less-than-ideal listening rooms many (most?) of us are working with. The midbass does some things I do not like at all and generally sounds quite resonant. Let me give some specific examples: The low-noise front-facing port will appeal to people that want to place their monitors closer to a rear wall.Output is limited by the internal DSP. From my testing, this occurs somewhere between 96dB and 102dB at 1 meter and results in significant limiting of the output signal. If one assumes 3dB of in-room gain and 6dB from adding a second speaker, this works out to be approximately a maximum volume of 105dB at 1 meter and 93dB at 4 meters, in-room for a pair. It is therefore reasonable to assume that these are not ideal for farfield, long-term high output listening and are best relegated to nearfield or midfield use for higher output levels. If listening at moderate volumes, these make a reasonable solution in terms of output levels. The reference plane in this test is at the tweeter. XLR input. Volume max. -10dBv. The ports were open (not stuffed). There are three models in the series (plus a powered subwoofer), with the last digit of the model number indicating the size of the main driver. The 306P on test here occupies the middle of the range, incorporating a 6.5-inch mid/bass unit along with a 1-inch Neodymium tweeter. Like most modern monitors, the 306Ps are an active design with bespoke onboard power amplifiers. Each monitor is bi-amped, with both low- and high-frequency drivers powered by their own 56-watt Class D amplifier, producing a maximum continuous SPL of 98dB (110dB peak) and a frequency range of 39Hz-24kHz.

The JBL 306P MkII also provides some tuning options to help deal with some of the more common issues you might encounter in your studio.If you want to maximize your budget, the PreSonus Eris Studio 5 is worth exploring. While it might be lower in price, it still offers excellent performance. As we'd expect, it's a whole other story when you high pass them so they're not trying to play deep bass. The JBL 306P MkII also features excellent shielding to prevent interference from external devices. A must-have for the modern studio, which is often filled to the brim with gizmos and gadgets. Regarding beginner-friendly studio monitors, the LP-6 V2 from Kali Audio is another firm favorite. It also comes in at a cheaper price point than the 306P MkII.
