cant seam to find anything on this unit- but just as a general- the pro jbl (us built) speakers are still among the most advanced in terms of engineering. vastly beyond domestic speakers of today over 30 years ago and rather slowing in development since.
Ive been all though the popular domestic designs with a fine tooth comb- jm-labs,pmc,xtz,b+w,bose,kudos,martin logan,quad esl..... the list goes on. ive had them all apart and tested like crazy for 4 years-propper setup jbl pro walks all over them. (like the k2, which makes me laugh because you could diy one for under £700!)
Thanks for that
I have done some more research.
The price is for one speaker. So £15k+ vat + import duty = a lot more
I suppose at that price point it was a silly question as you would expect them to sound superb and
blow most consumer speakers out of the water. Making pure Beryllium drivers is not a cheap process either.
These are also used at the Caen film festival.
I will be listening to a set of these shortly. I had not heard of them before hence my original question as to if anyone else had come across them in their travels.
now i have the details- i would give a arm for them- these are the real deal. cone acceloration is out of this world (bl factor) - assuming the drivers are run within there limits and the cones are designed to control radial patterns well ( and being jbl- it will) this has the potential to be among the best.
The horn pattern may be the only thing that could be improved on it. (geddes)
sound should be *detailed*, and this in my experience will include harsh loud trebble occasionaly when playing brass etc- because thats reality.
