The SCL-5 is the highest performing round in-ceiling model in the JBL Synthesis Custom Loudspeaker (SCL) series. It is designed for deployment in high-performance immersive audio systems in medium to large size rooms. The SCL-5 features JBL’s patented 2409H 1-inch (25mm) compression driver mated to an offset High Definition Imaging (HDI™) horn. This patented horn design is integrated with an angled 7-inch (180mm) Advanced Aluminium Matrix cone cast-frame woofer operating behind an acoustic aperture waveguide. The innovative configuration yields incredibly smooth and consistent performance for off-axis placement up to 60 degrees from the listening position. Premium components are used throughout the crossover network including a boundary gain adjustment switch while high-quality gold-plated push type speaker terminals ensure a secure connection. Installation is simple and quick with the new Cat Claw mounting mechanism that allows the speaker to be securely clicked into place freeing up two hands for tightening it down flush to the surface of the ceiling. Round and square zero bezel magnetically attached grilles are included and can be painted to match any décor. The SCL-5 is acoustically designed to match any of the JBL Synthesis Custom Loudspeakers (SCL series) as part of a complete JBL Synthesis immersive audio solution.
