    Regarding the JBL K2 s9500

    Hi

    I have been told that the s9500 is down -24db @ 21.000hz,
    is this someting anyone can confirm?

    Maybe this would be easy to fix, maybe with digital-EQ:ing.
    Lower the sensitivity from 98db to 90db before the drop,
    and then EQ the dropped freq up..

    THEN, on.. Active crossowers seems to be something the
    K2 likes.. Instead of the built in crossowers..

    I think the DSC280 has some built in presets..

    has anyone heard the s9500 ?

    If you look at this one:
    http://www.lansingheritage.org/image...500/page07.jpg

    There is nop drop at 21000hz,
    the spec reads:

    33hz - 21000hz -6db, hmmm....

    maybe, the K2 is really nice at all..

    Sorry they are doing my floors I must be breathing to much polyurethane. I deleted the post as it made no sense at all. I was wondering why you would want to do that. Seems a strange way to spec the roll off??? -6 at least makes sense.

    Hi Niklas,

    I could have written in swedish, but for other people to understand, I write in english...
    This weekend coming up now, there will be a small hifi exebition in Horten, about an hou soth of Oslo. About 40 minutes north of Sandefjord.
    The new K2`s will be on that show, so if you want to come and have a look, and listen to them, why dont you take Ryanair over to Torp airport? It will only cost you some few swedish kroner.
    Info about the exebition is here:
    http://www.audes.no/messe/hifimesse03.htm
    I live only 10 minutes away from Torp, and could take you for free to Horten if you are interested. I am going there myself anyway...

    No problem :-)

    And by the way, I see that there is money needed to maintain this page open. I hope every one of you are willing to donate some few dollars. I will do the same. OK?

    I came back from the exebithion just about 20 minutes, and my ears are still ringing! I was in the JBL room for almost an hour listening to the new K2`s.
    Let me first tell you that the room was just a hotel room stripped for furnitures and beds. So it was far far from good listening conditions. That was what Claus, from www.imageaudio.no also said. It was like having a demo in a broom closet.
    Anyway, I can tell you one thing: These speakers need a very large and high quality amplifier. We tried it first with a 100 watt tube amplifier from McIntosh. Sounded all right, but not that impressive. The amplifier was running to hard already at moderate listening levels. So we connected a 400 watt transistor power amp. Also this one from McIntosh. It was powerful, clean and dynamic. No doubt about that.
    But the listening room should have been better. I will see one day if I can go over to Imageauido, that is just about 5 minutes from where I live, and see if I can get a proper demo there. They have a bigger and better room.
    Come over Niklas, and lets go for a demo! I bet you can get a ticket at www.ryanair.com for 3-400 kroner.
    Pictures will come soon.

    Hello Leif (Hej Leif).

    This weekend i bought a pair og K2 s9500.

    All i can say is that the soun great, and itīs the most nice looking
    loudspeakers i have ever seen.

    I power the K2 with two NAD S200 ampfilters, one for lower band
    and one for upper band.

    The seccond step for me is to rebuild my listeningroom, and
    make some acoustically improvements..

    Pictures to come

    Lucky you!
    Can I ask you how much you had to pay?
    These ones are for sale for about 200.000,-
    But I think that is a bit much. I guess one can be lucky and get them for a smaller amount. The shopkeeper had been unfortunate enough to get a scratch on one of the sides. Not a big scratch, but enough to get a good discount.
    I am exited to see the pictures.

    And congratulations!!!
