Audio Pro speakers!
This is the one of the most expensive speakers in the KLIAV 2011 show – JBL Project Everest DD66000 that costs a whopping RM250,000! This is the price of a low to medium cost apartment in Penang! The DD66000 is considered JBL’s ultimate state-of-the-art loudspeaker!
Project Everest DD66000 is an augmented two-way speaker system, a classic JBL design. One 380mm (15") woofer crosses over to a horn-loaded compression driver at 700Hz, the midpoint of the audio spectrum. A second 380mm woofer reinforces bass from below 30Hz to 150Hz, while an ultrahigh-frequency driver operates exclusively in the supersonic realm above 20kHz.
The frequency response is 45Hz to 50kHz (-6dB) with 96dB (2.83V@1m). The speaker weights a whopping 137kg without the grille. Add another 5kg for the grille! It would be quite a lot of fun to transport and position the speakers at the show!
The JBL Project Everest DD66000 is partnered with Bel Canto Design amplifiers. During my visit, Transformers 2 was demo-ed. The sound is great, huge scaled, real and solid! I wonder how it performs with stereo music.
