Edgewound...JBL Pro Authorized...since 1988
Upland Loudspeaker Service, Upland, CA
The 4600 uses the same HF driver as the Array1000, 175nd-3. The UHF is different, named 138Nd. It does not appear to incorporate a SonoGlass horn.
I read a report about them from a show in Sweden. They were compared to the K2 S5800. With price difference in mind the reporter was positively surprised at their performance.

Edit: And whats the deal about them 4428 beeing manufactured in the USA? When it is so, why can't we just head there and grab a pair before they ship them to Japan? (You might have guessed that i want one)
Which are the models manufactured in this factory ??
Most of the questions in this thread appear to be covered by the narrative that I recently added. There are a few that weren't that are addressed below.
I'm pretty sure that it was a demonstration for the benefit of the Japanese guests. Orders on all of these products are small so that this production line is usually focussed on one product at a time. That's why it was unusual to see a number of models on the line.
Don, thanks for the photo essay tour ! I always enjoy these insights .
- Assuming the system auditions at Greg Timbers home were done with the tweeters disconnected , are you able to paraphrase & then share with us, the impressions of the Japanese guests ?

It is like same surprising!! for the whole world.
I thought that it worked all the time with all the top-of-the-range models.
The time I visited JBL that smaller assembly line had no one working on it but hosted a variety of models: gorgeous K2-S9800s, a pair of blue-faced 4313s and I believe a pair of the big Revel cabs.
It looked much more like custom hand assembly than even a minimal production run.
They obviously weren't setting up any demo for my benefit.
Thanks for sharing your stories and all the great pictures Don!
