Sound Inspired by JBLs legendary M2 Master Reference Monitor
High definition imaging (HDI) waveguide technology takes its cues from the legendary JBL M2 Master Reference Monitor. Computer-optimised driver positioning and network integration result in ideal performance ad life-like soundstage imaging throughout the entire room, regardless of location. Proven acoustic superiority through rigorous testing and real-world evaluation.
The JBL Arena 6IC in-ceiling loudspeaker offers a sturdy, reliable installation design that fits ceilings from 0.5″ to 2″ thick. Specialty locking clamps secure the in-ceiling speaker in place and are designed to minimize vibration. There needs to be at least 1″ between the edge of the supplied mounting template and any rafters or other obstructions behind the ceiling, so the speaker’s locking mechanism will have room to engage fully.
Frame Diameter (w/ Grille) : 9.125″ (diameter) x 0.25″ (depth)
Cutout Opening : 8.0″ (diameter) x 4.6875″ (depth)
