    EVEREST DD66000

    That's all I could gather from the stereo sound website.
    Magazine is available from september 13th.

    "Exceeding the name item age of name vessel today of the past years, the component 147 selection which shines JBL highest rank system Project Everest DD66000 New work model thorough audition of fall" (Babelfish)

    Looks like a 2x15 (or 18) inch speaker with huge mid frequency horn and possibly a tweeter.

    Don, cat's out of the bag. Tell us more please

    Red face Ah publishers

    That pretty much does let the cat out of the bag, doesn't it?

    Any guesses on the price?

    The cat is out of the bag. I just came back from the official launch event and I'm happy to say that I have been given clearance to post full coverage of that event immediately. I have over 100 pictures from tonight that I have to download and sort through, which will take time. I should have something up within the next 12 hours. For now, I can give you the basic configuration. The heart of the system is a new 4" diameter beryllium compression driver. It is mated with two slightly modified 1500AL's and a slightly modifed 045Be UHF. It uses a tuning similar to the 4435 for the twin bass drivers where one is restricted to operate below 250hz. More soon.

    It's about 11:00 PM there. You've had a long day. Please give us at least one shot before you go to bed.

    As was pointed out in the Eol thread, the industrial design is intended to be evocative of the Hartsfield, and if you look closely, the Paragon as well. The pictures do not do this system design justice. In my view, it is the most impressive statement, both accoustically and visually, ever to have come out of JBL.

    NOTE: Pictures moved here.

    Hartsfield, Paragon ... It reminds me of the Olympus.
    Great design, they made this huge horn embrace two woofers and it is nearly invisible.
    No bass reflex anymore? :dont-know

    PS: Thank you for mentioning "EoL" thread, it was nearly meaningless
