    New K2 S9900

    Today I saw on the web some review announcing the last K2 project : S9900

    In fact, it looks like a K2 S9800 mounted with the 476be driver. The horn remind me the Everest design.

    I would appreciate more details.
    Regards Stephane

    Nice. If what has been said is true, that, and a good subwoofer, might even be preferable to the Eversest II, although I would think there is a somewhat raised crossover frequency.

    Quite possibly in some rooms... I had a sneak peek at them a few months ago... these pics look more diminutive than the speaker appears in person. They are quite shallow, but are wider than you might imagine. All and all a heck of a step forward from the 9800.

    The material used for the horn driver is no more Be but Magnesium ?

    It isn't quite the Everest II

    Yep.

    Better than aluminum or titanium, but not quite the same as Be. You can see evidence of the lower break-up mode in this pic.

    Magnesium

    It makes more sense for a 3-way though. The 476Be is arguably overkill for a 3-way.

    Yeah, I suspect the old timers will simply stick with the 136H, 376/HL89, 077

    Honestly though, the K2-S9900 is a whole different arena.

    Very nice looking. How do you think it compares to the S9800? Have they managed to make the Mg driver sound as good as the previous 435Be?
