Powerful, accurate and styled to make a dramatic design statement in any listening environment, compact JBL Studio 130 loudspeakers bring legendary JBL sound to bookshelves, tabletops and other convenient, space-saving places. Engineered to outperform competitive systems of similar size, they play loud and long with impressive dynamic range, tonal accuracy and spatial transparency. The rigid, heavily braced enclosure includes a rear-facing bass port for extended low-frequency response. The enclosure itself, available in a silver-tinted black finish, incorporates the distinctive JBL Weave design for a dynamic, one-of-a-kind look.

1" CMMD Lite tweeter housed in a Bi-Radial® waveguide for incredible

Accurate and detailed high frequencies
For the most detailed sound quality from your music or movies, the JBL® Studio 130 bookshelf loudspeakers feature a patented CMMD® Lite tweeter dome with a proprietary Bi-Radial® waveguide. CMMD Lite starts with a dome of aluminum that is sandwiched on either side with ceramic. Its design is strong enough to hold its shape when moving rapidly, while light enough to effectively eliminate any unwanted resonance.
And when it comes to competitive materials, they just don't stack up. CMMD Lite is more than 200 times stronger than polypropylene, and it's even three times stronger than titanium. Pair this with a weight that is actually 30 percent lighter than titanium, and you have a tweeter than can deliver all the subtle details that make for an extraordinary listening experience.
The proprietary Bi-Radial® waveguide ensures that high frequencies sound good anyplace in the room.

To make sure that listening to the JBL Studio 130 loudspeakers is a great experience anyplace where you happen to be listening in the room, they use proprietary Bi-Radial® waveguides around the tweeter. This waveguide ensures a wide dispersion of the high frequencies throughout the room while keeping them both accurate and natural-sounding. The result? A greatly expanded "sweet spot" for the most realistic sound experience possible.
Rich, full-range sound
Using a patented driver material for the 4-inch low frequency transducer called PolyPlas™, the Studio 130's can deliver full range sound that is both smooth and natural. PolyPlas is engineered to be both stiff and lightweight and reproduces vocals with incredible accuracy.
In addition to realistic vocal reproduction, the strength and the lightweight of the PolyPlas material allows for outstanding bass response the is incredibly deep for a bookshelf speaker its size. And by using a rubber surround for the driver, heat gets dissapated which also helps to further minimize distortion, even at high listening levels.
The result? An incredible sounding bookshelf speaker that is equally at home as the main speakers in a more compact home theater system or as the rear speakers in a truely high-performance JBL surround system.
JBL's new Weave design is both striking and elegant.
Incorporating the new distinctive JBL® Weave design, the Studio 130s make a bold statement in nearly any listening room. An attractive front baffle with two unique grilles goes beyond the typical "black box" for a loudspeaker that looks as good as it sounds.
For more than 60 years, JBL has been delivering world-class listening experiences where ever great sound matters.
