A Journey of Engineering Excellence

At JBL, audio technology is at the core of everything we do. For over 65 years we have employed the best methodology and tools, and, as established at the very beginning by our founder, James B. Lansing, we develop everything from the ground up. This not only ensures success in the marketplace, it guarantees our efforts exceed the needs and expectations of audio professionals throughout the world. Never straying from this exacting formula, our journey has produced a prolific list of audio achievements, groundbreaking technologies, revolutionary advances in the art and science of professional audio, many patents, and many awards. It’s a journey that is legendary worldwide and has positioned JBL as the world leader in professional audio. Not just as a brand, but  as a company known for consistently blending creativity and science as a manifestation of our passion for sound and our commitment to those who create it. Purposeful invention is no accident. It requires leadership, persistence and an unfaltering commitment to JBL’s ultimate design goal: create the best tools for better, more accurate sound. The technologies highlighted in these pages are not only part of a lasting legacy, they are at work every day at the core of all JBL products used by audio professionals worldwide.

The technology of transducers is truly the starting place for the entire JBL engineering legacy. Building on James B. Lansing's historic foundation, JBL engineers continue to break ground on new and better ways to design transducers, reaching beyond what is commonly understood as possible and consistently setting new performance benchmarks for the audio industry. Starting from scratch and often developing patents in the process, JBL engineers always develop from the ground up, resulting in technologies, such as Differential Drive woofers, CMCD Cone Midrange drivers, and the D2 Dual Voice Coil Compression Driver, that cover the entire practical bandwidth of professional audio devices. Simultaneously addressing performance-robbing challenges such as power compression, heat dissipation, distortion, component weight, and physical footprint, JBL has created a range of transducers that are unparalleled in their ability to deliver extraordinary performance throughout a wide range of applications.
