JBL offers four new additions to its Precision Directivity™ PD5000 Series: the two-way PD5200/43 (with a 40x30 coverage pattern), two three-way PD5322 models (PD5322/95 and PD5322/64 with 90x50 and 60x40 coverage patterns, respectively) and a full-range two-way PD5212/43 model (40x30 coverage pattern).

The PD5212/43 features a horn-loaded 12-inch low-frequency driver, a large-format high-frequency compression driver and delivers frequency response from 80 to 18k Hz. The PD5212/43 has been engineered for music or speech applications where frequency extension to 80 Hz is adequate, or can be coupled with subwoofer for extended bandwidth full-range systems.

PD5200 loudspeakers feature a high power 8-inch dual-coil CMCD™ Cone Midrange Compression Driver, providing high sensitivity and high continuous SPL capability with low distortion, extended bandwidth and improved phase coherence. The large-format neodymium HF driver provides clear, intelligible high-frequency projection.

The PD5322 are three-way loudspeakers based on the PD5200 mid/high design with the addition of two JBL Professional 2206 Vented Gap Cooled™ 600-watt 12-inch transducers providing LF extension to 40 Hz. PD5322 models provide a true full-range frequency response for installations requiring high performance in the smallest enclosure size. PD5322, which shares common enclosure dimensions with the PD5200 and PD5212 Series, facilitate compact and efficient array design.

Featured across the PD5000 Series, newly developed 24x24-inch PT™ Progressive Transition mid-frequency rotatable waveguides that provide versatility, tight pattern control with low distortion and extremely natural sound character. Also incorporating steep-slope passive crossover networks help minimize band overlap, further enhancing off-axis pattern control. User-accessible internal switches allow for a fully active crossover.
