Pro Performance, Scaled to Size
The world’s top recording studios and touring artists rely on JBL Professional monitors to deliver unparalleled fidelity and performance. With our 1 Series, we’ve optimized that technology in our smallest form factor ever. The 104-BT Reference Monitor’s innovative coaxial driver design features a high-frequency driver aligned with a woofer cone precisely contoured to deliver accurate response, exceptional detail and impressive off-axis performance. The result: neutral, accurate sound, anywhere. The cabinet’s precisely contoured low-frequency port works with the driver to deliver powerful, tight bass at any volume level.
Streamline Your Sessions
JBL 104-BT Reference Monitors integrate smoothly into any production workspace, thanks to smart features like a front-panel input control that selects Bluetooth, Aux, RCA, TRS or combines all inputs—quickly check references or switch easily between tasks like playing back your tracks and taking a phone call. Or, select all inputs for a simple mix. Front-panel volume control allows convenient level adjustments without straying from the sweet spot, and a front-panel headphone jack automatically mutes the speakers, giving you isolation in one simple step. And, JBL 104-BT Reference Monitors’ dual 1/4-inch balanced, dual RCA and single 1/8-inch inputs plus Bluetooth, accommodate a wide range of signal sources.
Power and Punch
Inside, a proprietary coaxial driver pairs a contoured low-frequency woofer with a soft-dome tweeter, for superior imaging, a wide sweet spot, deep bass and sparkling highs. A potent 60-watt amplifier delivers loudest-in-class output. Plus with Bluetooth streaming, you can wirelessly reference mixes to ensure great sound in every listening scenario. Both the black 104-BT and white 104-BTW versions are sleek, elegant and compact, making stunning statements in any studio while conserving valuable workspace.
