    JBL Studio 6 Series

    I suspect this means the imminent retirement of the Studio 5 Series, but the Studio 6 Series seems certain in the US and elsewhere after debuting in Japan.

    The Studio 6 line continues with the Polyplas low and mid drivers, but places a compression driver inside a faux M2-looking horn..

    This means another Timbers-designed Series passes into history.
    Out.

    The whining continues...

    Wow! I didn’t realize JBL was still in business!

    Just kidding, but over the last 10+ years it seems that JBL Consumer has continued to demonstrate it has lost its way and has been losing what made JBL unique. It is really getting harder and harder to care about anything they do.

    When I joined this forum in 2001-2002 you could have 20,30, even 40+ year old drivers rebuilt at the factory and the majority of the JBL systems were able to be repaired and restored by ordering replacement parts from JBL. Try that today.

    So far JBL Pro has remained reasonably true to their Lansing Heritage. If we’re lucky they will be allowed to continue their R&D and production of quality gear... but I wouldn’t count on it.

    The Studio 5 Series is still finding a lot of love from recent buyers ( many testimonials are found over at AK ).

    See this thread ( one of a handful )!

    Here's one beefy little driver from that ( Studio 5) series ( compared to Klipsch which is seen on the right ).
