Adding to its world-class line of ScreenArray® cinema loudspeaker systems, HARMAN’s JBL Professional brand is introducing the new 3730 3-way ScreenArray loudspeaker at CineEurope 2011. The new 3730 is designed as a very cost-effective solution for small to medium size theaters, offering maximum output and optimal coverage and the patented technology found in all ScreenArray systems.
The 3730 ScreenArray system utilizes a single-driver, full-size midrange horn with a 165mm (6.5-inch) cone transducer, and JBL’s patented high-frequency horn with Screen Spreading Compensation (SSC™), a technology which automatically corrects the spread of high-frequency information through perforated screens, and which provides the ScreenArray system with an asymmetrical coverage pattern 10 degrees down from horizontal for uniform sound in every seat in stadium-type auditoriums.
“Our ScreenArray loudspeaker series has continued to set the standard for cinema systems and the new 3730 enables even more venues to take advantage of JBL’s unmatched performance,” noted Chuck Goodsell, Director of Cinema, JBL Professional. “The cost-effective 3730 further reinforces JBL Professional’s ability to provide scalable solutions across a spectrum of venue sizes and price points.”
The 3730 ScreenArray loudspeaker features a selectable bi-amp or fully passive switchable crossover and a high-frequency, polymer diaphragm, neodymium compression driver for maximum output. The low-frequency section has dual 380mm (15-inch) transducers with ribbon wire voice coils for low distortion and high efficiency.
