Now back to the S4700s... any ideas why they would engineer two new drivers? It seems to me they should have built the system around the 435AL and 045Ti and gone with a CC'd network.
The system sure looks nice though.
Would love to get the 1400, 4700, 5800, 9900 in the Northridge rotating demo room with a cashiers check laid in front of me for which ever I picked blindly. This of course assumes the slightly flawed 9900 west coast cabinet discount is part of the deal
I didn't realize that JBL was already using those HF components in the S4600 (I really didn't pay much attention to it since it doesn't exist in my market). I guess it does make sense to use them then, but I have to believe in the blind shuffle room the 1400 Array would wipe the floor with the significantly more expensive S4700... open the curtain and the S4700 should hold it's own. The S4700 is a nicely balanced aesthetic design. I wonder how well it will sell... we have sold a couple of pairs of the K2-S9900s, they are very room friendly and seem to do well in the WAF department as well... too bad they cost as much as a new car! If they weren't so darned expensive I am sure we could sell more. I am sure JBL is aware of this and hence the S4700.
The S4700 would have a harder time getting in the house here, especially with its boxier look. Those curves and the cleavage on the K2 S9900 do connect with some on a visceral level.
