225-watt, dual 8" (200mm), three-way floorstanding speaker designed for your home theater.
The Northridge; E Series E90 floorstanding loudspeaker delivers superb audio, whether used for critical listening in a stereo system, or combined with a Northridge E center channel, bookshelf surrounds and a subwoofer to create a home theater system. The E90 performs like a pro, with technology developed by JBL's Professional division. Equipped with JBL's titanium-laminate tweeters and PolyPlas; drivers, the speaker reproduces the high notes with extreme clarity. The lows and mids, efficiently boosted by dual 8-inch woofers and assisted by the FreeFlow; flared port, are loud and clear, without unwanted distortion or boominess. The Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal (EOS); wave guide ensures that every seat is the best seat in the house for sweet music, intelligible dialogue or for just rocking out. Factory Remanufactue
JBL engineers have designed the E90 for serious audio output. We recommend that you power it with a separate, 225-watt amplifier, whether you are using the speaker as a stand-alone unit or as part of a stereo/surround-sound system.
The E90’s low-frequency driver produces uniform pistonic motion and effortless, high-impact bass. Premium components such as PolyPlas coating on the driver and a HeatScape™ motor structure give you low distortion, few internal resonances and the freedom to play loud and long.
The midrange frequencies, where vocals are reproduced, are the heart and soul of great audio. They’re also the area where departures from faithful reproduction are most noticeable. Since the E90’s midrange driver features PolyPlas coating, which reproduces vocals with incredible accuracy and low distortion, the voices that you hear from this speaker come out clear and true.
Titanium is light but strong – an ideal material for high-frequency speakers. The E90 speaker’s extremely thin but rigid titanium-laminate tweeter delivers accurate, undistorted high-frequency response, even when the volume is way up. The result is full, clear, tight reproduction of high frequencies.
High-frequency and ultrahigh-frequency sounds are directional – they don’t spread out very widely, and they reach only a narrow range of the people in any room. But the proprietary Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal (EOS) waveguide in the E90 speaker widens the sound’s range to fill the entire room. You’ll get ideally balanced music, crisp dialogue and smooth audio distribution throughout the listening space. As a result, every seat will be the best seat in your home theater.
The E90’s IsoPower™ baffle design rigidly affixes the drivers to an extremely dense, non-resonant baffle. It allows the drivers to generate maximum air movement and energy while minimizing energy loss.
Heat can distort a speaker’s sound and lower its output and power handling. Fortunately, the E90 includes our proprietary HeatScape motor structure, which removes heat. As a result, it operates efficiently and reproduces sound accurately.
With a frequency response of 36Hz – 20kHz, the E90’s sound reproduction is extremely smooth and extended in every direction. The system’s directivity and power response are highly uniform, its harmonic distortion is reduced to inaudible levels, and its dynamic linearity is unparalleled.
The ideal path from input to components to transducers is a straight line. The E90 takes the shortest path possible, thanks to its Straight-Line Signal Path™ design. As a result, the speaker preserves the clarity, detail and dynamics of any audio content that it plays.
The magnets in many speakers can interfere with video reception, but not the magnets in the E90. We’ve shielded them to prevent interference. You get not only a clear TV picture but also installation flexibility, since you can place the speakers as close to your screen as you want.
