    For that factor alone very few of us can tell how it is voiced, for instance,
    we any don't have familiarity to make any further comments.

    Maybe it doesn't have the usual big monitor panache BECAUSE
    it is not real US Studio Monitor like 4343/45s-
    it just plays one in the brochures?
    Hi Heather,

    I heard it down here at a HiFi Show last year.

    The fact that the room was packed with dudes sitting on the floor 6 feet in front of it says something about the sound.

    To my ear it reminded me of the 4338's I heard in Japan and less like the 4600 which are more room friendly and more nice hifi.

    The blue baffle stuff is the Harley Davidson end of the business and it has a cult following in Japan.

    The other system on that list are far more costly and frankly dont cut it in terms of dynamics and chest thumping like the JBLs

    I am noticing a pattern of using large AWG air coils on the woofers. Both the US and the Asian market high-end models. Not trying to ignite a debate on merits of air v. solid. Just now looking at the newer models a little more carefully after years involved with the older designs.

    It's just a list of the products than got some sort of recognition throughout the year 2010 in Stero Sound. (If I got the concept correctly)

    The Japanese gave 4365 a much, much better review than the German STEREO-magazine.
    Please post the reviews if you have

    Noticing that 4365 has no battery on its crossover,i think it is a simplified charge-couple circuit.
    4313B may recovery it

    Hello everyone! For your information, the Italian Hi-Fi Magazine Audio Review has just published, in the May 2012 issue, a complete technical and listening test of the JBL 4365 (9 pages). We, as Italian distributor of JBL consumer products, sent them the pair of speakers for the test.

    You can see on the Audio Review website the preview of the magazine; unfortunately it is at low-resolution...
    We will be allowed to distribute freely the complete PDF of the test only after at least two month from the publication. In the meanwhile I put here two graphs (I know the Director of Audio Review allows me to do so).

    Name:  4365-FR.JPG
Views: 10149
Size:  95.0 KB

    The upper graph is of course the frequency response in listening room (pink noise, 2,83 Vin); the lower graph is the frequency response in anechoic environment (always 2,83 Vin). The upper curve is measured on axis and shows also the L-Pads level variations; the center and lower curves are measured at 30 and 45 degrees respectively.

    In the past months/years Audio Review tested also JBL Everest, K2-S9800, 4312MII, 4319, ES80, LS80 and Studio 580. For all of them the embargo period has finished, so I can publish the tests if anyone is interested...

    Now that's funny. I heard this speaker at the 2011 CES and was not impressed. My buddy has Cremonas, and with a good sub they sound better than these overpriced monsters, IMHO.

    If you want to see old tower speakers with subs on the side, you can go back a lot further than L7 vintage

    I was going to say that. That was AR's best speaker. Many people don't know this, but audio peaked in 1979.

    If we knew what the hell we were doing, we wouldn't call it research would we.
