JBL 4408A
The JBL Pro 4408As are a set of passive studio monitors that I've used in a radio broadcast control room. I haven't used these in a traditional recording studio setting, which is where I'm generally used to working. They can however be used in a variety of settings without a doubt. I don't know what kind of power amplifier was being used with these when I was listening on them, but it will indeed require an external power amplifier since they are passive monitors.

SOUNDS

I was definitely impressed with the sound of the JBL Pro 4408As. While I didn't use them for critical listening or mixing, right off the bat I could tell that they had a full sound. We were using them for listening to the radio broadcast that included both music and speech. It was absolutely a pleasant listening experience as I could hear the full range of frequencies well, including a good amount of low end. Judging from doing simple listening on them, I'd definitely say that they'd be suitable for use as near field monitors in a recording studio, but I can't say how well they would work for mixing or other applications where you would need to do more critical listening that what I was doing.

OVERALL OPINION

I haven't seen the JBL Pro 4408As in any professional recording studios, but I'm sure that some studios out there do have them since they have a great sound and are designed for both use in recording and broadcast studios. The price is about right for a nice sounding set of monitors like this, but again since I haven't used these during critical listening situations I can't say how they would compare to other studio monitors in this price range. JBL has a great reputation for making high quality studio monitors, so in no way was I surprised by the great sound that the 4408As have. I'd recommend jotting these down on your list of mid range priced studio monitors if you're in the market for some.

JBL 4408A
I found these speakers in a bad state at the suspensions.
After a little control in the U.S. and a few hours of work, they found a second life. I have listings and original cartons, they are now in a new state.
They are a small DriveES LUXMAN L30 despite 100 watts of 4408.

SOUNDS

The frequency curve is neutral despite a slight dip in the medium.
The 20cm woofer does its job but do not look for sub-bass.
The stereo image is great, I enjoyed listening to many different styles.
The momentum is good, listening over long periods is not tiring.

OVERALL OPINION

This will make 5 Months they have found life and serve each week.
I have tested the Behringer KRK but I prefer my old JBL :)
We love the sound and fullness without too stifling the spectrum, but its weight is considered.
The quality / price is well placed, but the side mount only.
With the experience I would do this choice unless a pair of 4312A presents
