    I’ve never seen one before. If you can take a sharp picture of the unit I bet we can figure it out.

    I assume the C50 with the Energizer has a 1” LE85 instead of the 2” 375 driver.

    I just looked more carefully, they are not a pair of speakers, but rather two singles. One looks to be an S7 with the energizer (JBL’s integral amplifier) and the other is the one that is likely the...

    It is probably an S8. Grab a photo of the mid driver to confirm or pull off the lens and see if you have a 1” or 2” driver.
