Yeah definitely not JBL! I guess they are just catering to their market as some of the driver combo's are a bit weird.

I believe Rick told me about these when we were talking about building a system for me maybe ten-years ago. They were his creation.
. . . before I bought the New Zenith 4345s.

It's just a 4344 rearranged to have a small footprint and get the tweeters up a bit higher. Not a new JBL model, just a Kenrick creation. :dont-know:

:thmbsup: And hear I thought you'd say Zenith of Benton Harbor. Interesting posts by NZ.

Itís like a tower system but with only one woofer

My observations from a user of this small foot print while not completely conclusive indicate a problematic tonal imbalance in the system. Narrowing of a baffle does impact on a systems balance when simulated in free space leading to peculiar response irregularities at different frequencies. Some frequencies are emphasised while others recede.

Why do wide baffle systems (read large) sound bigger than narrow baffle systems (read tall) that do not employ multiple woofers?

To be avoided unless you have REW on hand

Wasn't Zenith of Benton harbor just the computer tech variant of the old Heath Company?

Good memory, had forgotten that's what happened to Heath, had to review on Wiki. Zenith Data Systems was formed as a division of Zenith, acquired Heath from Schlumberger in 1979.

Baffle step losses, I think.

You only have to look at the M2 EQ to realise itís not academic

Big boxes sound for big for a reason

True. Big boxes with big woofers sound open, uninhibited, and realistic to my ears. Yes, I've heard some very impressive small speakers, but none that come close to the natural and enveloping personality of big boxes.
